Good Girl Day (wordy post though)

Oooo I AM proud of me today. Well, to start, This past weekend I got my new 2010 planner made & this time put check boxes for things I need to do daily & today I actually did all 4. It may not seem like much, but it is hard to to get motivated some (many) times. My 4 things to do daily are:
  1. Clean Something
  2. Craft Something
  3. Exercise Something
  4. Be Thankful for Something
I've kept it vague b/c I get bored/scattered/side tracked & really WANT to do these things daily. I figure if I don't get my body exercised at least I can do my mind. & as far as thankfulness, when I get down it is good to remind myself of what I have to be thankful for. Not only is this in my planner to remind me, but I am writing down what I am doing. So a nice little record. Well today I went to the gym with Lisa & we road the bikes (liked) made the rounds on the nautilus equipment (did not like) & finished off with the treadmills (liked.) Then we went to get lunch & pretty much canceled our good work, but was yummy & split a veggie philly & order of fries at Charley's then dumped off my small fortune of mail at the post office where they told me I have to alter my return address for OpSec reasons *rolls eyes* & that yoyo in an envelope have to have a customs form - yeesh. After a few more errands it was home again, home again jiggity jig & time to get cleaned & vacuum. Which is a never ending daily thing, but darn it, I did the whole first floor & it counts as cleaning something. Next I made a point to find my blessing for today (there are many,) today though I made a point to thank God for such a great family (& that my handsome eldest boy has his eye on a nice young lady.) These younguns might drive me crazy, but they are really good kids. & kooky like their parents. I could go on on that subject for quite sometime, but would seem braggy & boring. Lastly, I have been looking at excercising my artistic side more to improve. I need to draw daily, but where as when I was my boys ages that was all I wanted in life was to be an artist, over the years it got lost & it takes quite a bit to get back. I am much more comfortable now with general crafting. Periodically I'll make someone something & they say - You could sell that, but that is when it loses something for me. Arts & crafts are a labor of love (or at the least like.) I need to be invested on some emotional level or it is no fun. Anyhow, been looking at crafting 365 on flickr for sometime & have finally joined up. so have been crafting for 3 days.

So there you have it, I have been a good girl today & I feel GOOD. I hope you all are feeling at least half as good as me. Hugs :)
