I have been taking care of lots of little things lately. One of the
things I did this afternoon after picking up the children is put up
their 1st day of school pictures.
Today was a very pleasant day. I had an appointment to get my hair cut
this morning at 10. The weather was nice enough I could walk. My
haircut is fabulous and Terri did a great job again. Afterwards I ended
up walking all over town. I picked up some things I needed, looked at
shops and found nothing to buy, and even had lunch out. I decided
against walking all the way down to city hall and instead headed home.
Devin had gone into the office today so I needed to use my little
mazda to pick up the children. I went out to use it to head to city
hall first and it wouldn’t start. Somehow I had jangled loose the
cables on the new battery. I probably didn’t put the cables on securely
enough when I installed it. I was glad I got it working.
I have been listening to Deep Dish
online. Their website lets you listen to their music for free. I really
like “Say Hello” and “In love with a friend”. The other song I am
currently grooving on is “Speed of Sound” by Coldplay. I know it bores
some people but I like the song this week. The new iTunes 5 is still my
friend and it works!
Devin and I are both reading this book by David Allen called Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity.
I finally finished an entire read through last night. What I found very
interesting was just how much it matched and complimented the
FlyLady program I have been doing for the past few years. I highly
suggest FlyLady if you are digging yourself out of chaos and
disorganization. Once you are ready to do even more then I would
suggest the David Allen book. If I had not been doing FlyLady for the
past few years I would not be even close to ready for the Getting
Things Done. You wouldn’t think something like this would work for a
homemaker but the system he has will work for just about any job. I
still have many things to work on in my life but progress has been
I have been hearing from more and more people that I seem to be doing better and feeling better. I do! I
feel a lot better. I have been walking more and have less chaos at
home. Our priest even told me that the contrast from a year ago is just
amazing. Stopping and taking stock of my progress makes me agree. The
way I am feeling and doing now compared to even 6 months ago is
amazing. I am happy! Strange to think but seriously, I am happy!
