Yesterday I had a major accomplishment. After weeks and weeks of neglecting this task I FINALLY did it! Drum roll please!
I threw out my mini pumpkin and gourds! I bought these in September to decorate beside my mailbox. For the past four months my poor mailman has had to look at these things everyday! However, I finally threw them out on January 27th. Why did it take me so long to get rid of these? Was I hoping to leave them up for next fall? Well, honestly I just kept forgetting about it. Every time I would see them I would have my hands full, would be leaving the house, or simply didn’t have the time/motivation to deal with it.
I finally made a point of dealing with them yesterday because of a daily to-do list that I started keeping. I have been enjoying reading “mommy blogs” and became inspired by Simple Mom to use her organizational system “The Pocket Docket.” The main concept of the Pocket Docket is to plan for your day, think through what you want to get done, figure out what are the most important things to actually accomplish that day, and rejoice if you can make a dent in your list!
The Pocket Docket is a printable worksheet. The main feature is a to-do list for every day, a schedule for things that need to happen at a specific time, a place to plan what you are having for supper that night, and a notes section. If you want to track more things throughout your day, you’ll want to use Simple Mom’s original “Daily Docket,” which has a place to record your water intake, exercise and more. You can read all about Simple Mom’s daily docket here.
If you are interested in downloading a copy of her daily docket or her pocket docket you can do that here.
The other major accomplishment I had recently? I had “the talk” with Grace. Yes, THAT talk. Now we don’t have to have it when she is a teenager. 🙂
