I'm going to be brutally honest. Last week was rough. I didn't do a whole lot of thinking about the list. In the grand scheme of life, my week wasn't that bad. I might be slightly dramatic, but it did wear me out. So what if I'm a big whiny baby? (Please don't answer. That was a rhetorical question.)
While #14 (the bed-making one) has been crossed off, I'm happy to report that the bed-making has become a habit. And I LOVE it.
As a reward for my rough week, I took a long, solo trip to Kroger on Sunday night. (No, I'm not kidding. Stop laughing.) I *thought* that I'd accomplished #19 (Save more than 50% on a grocery order at Kroger), but I fell short. I saved a piddly 42%. It was a rather large shopping trip, so 42% is nothing to sneeze at, but I thought I was closer than that! Sam (who honestly does more of the grocery shopping than me) did accomplish a 50% savings two weeks ago. Tempting as it is, I will not steal that accomplishment from him and claim it as my own. But I did save the receipt, so I can marvel at his super-shopping ways.
One thing I did manage to keep going was #31 (Take my vitamin every day for a month). Hooray! This is no small task for someone who just doesn't do medicine.
I am back to square one on #37 (Get up early enough for Church AND Sunday School for an entire month). I worded that poorly, and technically, I was awake in time for both of them. What I meant was that I wanted to actually attend both of them for an entire month. This past Sunday, for reasons known as "life", I didn't make it to the first hour.
#40 (Begin and maintain a prayer journal) has already been a blessing to me. To see and be able to recognize answered prayers is an amazing thing.
I went to the library last night and checked out five more Dr. Seuss books in an effort to accomplish #55. We have officially read all of the Dr. Seuss books that we own. We're up to 28 now. Almost halfway there! (And I still love him just as much.)
#73 (Host a party at the homestead) is possibly in the works. I have offered to have the class party at our house this Christmas. We shall see. Fingers crossed! I love a good get-together. Come one, come all!
Aside from taking treats to the teachers, and sending notes of cheer, I plan to buy something on Etsy (#46) and make some homemade gifts (#67) in the very near future (what with Christmas being only 44 days and 13 hours away). I also hope to tackle the advent calendar (#70) before December gets here and start the journal of quotes (#68).
I hope to maintain a paced enthusiasm in the spirit of the tortoise.
"Slow and steady wins the race."
I know it when I "see" it?
