|A little after school dress-up.|
In honour of last night's post about time management, and my desire to create a to-do list that is both manageable and accomplished, I offer you my day's list, in no particular order (which might be part of my problem in the first place, but I digress):
- Clean entire house. Just kidding. But do clean some of the house because a) the Shabbat deserves a nice clean house, b) Matt invited a guest for dinner, and c) bathrooms don't clean themselves.
- But seriously: vacuum carpets, clean the bathroom, and wash the kitchen floor.
- Give Shira a duster and encourage her to clean like the wind!
- Spend thirty minutes on my course website reading more of my students introductions. There aren't many obligations for my students this first week of classes, but I do expect they'll introduce themselves. It's only polite.
- Edit a birth story I've written for my first doula clients. I hope they'll find it useful. Have I mentioned already how amazing that was? Oh right, I did that here.
- Come up with, bake, and (eventually) devour a dessert for tonight's Shabbat dinner. Alyce and Shira always have something special with their Friday night dinners and today I'm going to prepare a few chocolate covered strawberries for them. But I'm still not sure what to make for the grown-ups. Maybe chocolate covered strawberries.
- Remember to actually prepare the strawberries instead of just talking about them here on this blog.
And in honour of my renewed optimism, here are a few things that have inspired me this week:
She constantly reminds me that it is ok not to be perfect. Read this (and all her other words) and you'll see what I mean.
This post saved me from having my own meltdown a couple of weeks ago. It is really good to be good to other people.
Because I think it's important to sometimes write just for yourself, instead of the entire internet.
Have you answered this question yet?
What is on your list today?
