Wake up with determination; go to bed with satisfaction. ~ Unknown
I knew there were a few things I wanted to accomplish today, but I was conflicted between wanting to get these tasks completed and wanting to just relax and read. When I awoke this morning I just knew I couldn’t have these things hanging over my head all week, so I mustered up all the determination I could and started tackling the items on my list.
- A Target run – I needed to get a birthday gift and packing tape….$32.00 later I was heading back to my car with two bags. I never get out of Target without buying more than what was on my list. Thank goodness I had a $20 gift card.
- Clean out my clothes closet – Purple Heart is coming on Wednesday to pick up our donation items. I have three boxes and a bag already, but I was determined to get rid of the clothes in my closet that haven’t seen the light of day in a very long time. I now have another bag and a half to put out for collection.
- Laundry – I have to admit this was a joint effort between my husband and me. An empty hamper is a very satisfying picture. I can hear the last load tumbling in the dryer as a write.
- Pay a bill – with a few clicks of my mouse – done!
Honestly, there were a few more things on my list, but I did have to squeeze in time for a nap, for watching some March Madness (the Duke – UCF game had me biting my nails, and I don’t even have a bracket!), and for reading.
I will lay my head on my pillow with the satisfaction of having check several things off my list – even if it wasn’t a total victory.
