First of all, I am not the most organizied person in the world but one thing I have done pretty regularly for a long time is make a to-do list for my day off work. In the past, I could have 20 things on the list & it was my goal to mark all of them off! There is such a feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day to see you conquered THE LIST!! Well, now that I have an 8 month old, I have had to come to terms with the fact if I get 2 things marked off my list.....I have still conquered it!!! Ha! It's amazing how the little things in life change!! :)
Sometimes just to make myself feel better, I create this kind of list!!
