A Good Sign

Today, I got up off my arse and did some things around here. "Oh", you might say, "And why should we be so impressed by that?" Because I haven't done anything around here in weeks.  So today, I got busy.
  1. I did 7 loads of laundry, including two down jackets, all the dog beds, my sheets and blankets, my gym clothes and towels, and the normal laundry.
  2. I took stock of my food situation and made a meal plan for the week.
  3. I made soup and stuffed peppers .
  4. I dug out around the sump pump so it will work properly when this big rain/sleet storm begins tomorrow.
  5. I ran the dog.  Twice.
  6. I downloaded pictures and dealt with them.  I answered emails.
  7. I vacuumed the whole house.  
  8. I had to dicker with the clothes dryer because it was acting up.
  9. I blogged.
  10. I filled up the bird feeders. 
  11. I took out the composting.
  12. I did mountains of dishes and put them all away.
  13. I made my lunch and set out clothes for tomorrow.  My gym bag is packed and ready to go.
  14. I gathered up some things to take to the food pantry and more clothes to the Goodwill.  They are in the car trunk and ready to go next time I swing by.
  15. I cleaned the bathroom.
I also managed to relax and get ready for my work week.  :)


  1. While reading this post, the first few images from here (http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/06/this-is-why-ill-never-be-adult.html) came to mind. *Clean ALL the things!* :) I'm envious of your productivity. I managed to go sledding, do some dishes and give J a haircut - my first attempt with shears. I think it looks pretty good. I'm lucky he's not picky.

  2. I pretty much subscribe to the "get three things done a day" rule. This goes for work and home. So really, I've done all my things for the week. I can cruise.

  3. LOVE those days. It feels SO GOOD to have all those things done before the week starts, doesn't it? And no matter what happens on the Dreaded Monday, it's not nearly as bad as the Dreaded Monday that follows an I Did Nothing All Sunday. Good job!
