So this past Wednesday, Ash Wednesday, was the first day of Lent. I grew up Baptist (sort of) and never had the obligation to observe Lent. I still don't feel obligated but I thought as a Christian I would give it a shot this year. My goal is small but a goal none the less. I've decided to give up watching television while eating lunch. Yes, this sounds small and ridiculous but it has become something worth giving up. I watch TV while eating and then I wash my dishes and often times continue to watch TV.
(while the household chores patiently wait)
I have also decided to organize/clean some part of my house each day. As of today I have...
Wednesday: cleaned out my gym drawer (I got rid of workout clothes I don't wear and organized the ones I do)
Thursday: cleaned and organized 4 out of 5 bathrooms in the house
Friday: cleaned out the pantry including the children's candy dish (Some candy thrown out was from Halloween!!)
As a stay at home Mom I often feel my "To-Do" list should be easy "to-do" but often times I feel I just can't get through my daily "to-dos". Instead of focusing on my "To-Do" list today I thought I'd focus on my "Ta-Da" list.
Things I accomplished (Ta-Da!) today:
*got both kids fed and ready for school
*gym for 2 hours
*prepared slow-cooker meal for dinner
*lunch with friends
*shopped for groceries
*saw kids home from school
*tucked kids into bed
Ta-Da! and Happy Lent.
