So what makes a day successful? Crossing off everything. And then adding other things I've done, just to feel the joy of crossing some more.
Write: check. Met the goal and landed on a happy number. Just for fun.
Walk: check. Plus, half of it was a jog. Not a beautiful thing to watch, but a good burner of calories and adipose tissue.
Shower: check. (See? I knew I had to do it anyway, so on the list it goes.)
Shop: check. Not for much things fun, but plenty of produce and one box of happiness for Husband's anniversary present.
Clean Kitchen: check.
Clean bathrooms: check (done by kids, hooray.)
Nap: check. Only 20 minutes, though. Do you find yourself disgusted by me? Sorry.
Return phone calls: nope. Put it on today's list.
Return emails: check.
Return library books: check. (Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks and Nobody's Princess - both 4 stars.)
Family Night: check, by passing most of it off to Kid 1.
Play with Kids: check. A rousing game of Imaginiff... (with very few huffy breaths and only two incidents of violence.)
Movie Date with Husband: check. Joined by Kids 1 and 2 because, why not?
So yesterday was a success, and we'll see how things go today. I need to make a list now...
