Sometimes I feel like I don't get anything done, ever. I've become a professional baby fight referee. That's all I do. Pull screaming babies away from each other. And change diapers and pick up toys. Slobbery ones.
Sometimes I feel like I will never be a civil, respected adult, ever again.
Last night I felt out of sorts and overwhelmed by all that needed to be done. I took stock of just what I had accomplished in the last few days.
A friend of mine recently gave me a really good idea. She said instead of writing out a to do list, I should write out a done list. I should list everything I accomplished that day however small. Empty dishwasher- check. Got mail- check. Showered- check, check.
I just love to write check marks next to things don't you? It so very satisfying.
For one thing, I finally made the succulent wreath that I've wanted for years. Check!
I also finished three necklaces and a bracelet for the Fall collection. Check.
I worked quite a bit on Spark. I made a bunch of calls and sent emails. I also created a graphic for our blogging panel we are going to have this year. Super excited about it. Check!
I changed approximately 6-8 diapers a day, made meals, bathed babies, folded laundry, picked up twenty thousand toys, got the car washed, shopped for Summer clothes for the kids, went to the park, hosted a sleep over, kissed hurts, helped with homework, had a picnic and refereed a lot of fights. Cheeeck.
See? Dosen't that seem like a lot of stuff?
Considering the fact that my great grandmother Mabel Campbell called it a productive day if she was able to get her trash out and have a regular bowel movement, I think I'm doing pretty good.
