    Default The Do Something...Do ANYTHING Daily Challenge 2011

    Well, as a procrasinator with fibro and CFS, there are days that I feel like I don't accomplish anything productive. I homeschool my kids, do all the cooking and cleaning, but don't feel like I get enough done. I thought I'd start a daily challenge to do more whatever it may be to help motivate myself. Please feel free to join me if you're having trouble getting things done or getting motivated or whatever. Some days my accomplishments will seem small. Some days I'll do more. I can't promise I'll do something every day, but the point is I'm going to try very hard. Come join me...maybe we can help each other.

    This fits in well with my new year's resolution, so I'm in, and I think just posting the things you did each day will make you realize that you do more than you give yourself credit for!

    I'm in also. I love to see what people get accomplished. I started today by using up some overriped bananas to make two loaves of banana bread. I am keeping all three grandkids tonight, so their parents can have a night out.

    My big accomplishment today was that I donated blood, and I also signed up to be tested to donate plasma, as there is apparently more of a need for that than for whole blood in my blood type. They will be mailing me the results, and if I am a good candidate, I can start donating plasma as soon as March 2011.

    That's awesome Madhen.

    I could use this challenge because some days I'm just plain lazy and then feel guilty the next day for getting nothing done. Then I bust my butt to catch up.

    I also have fibro so know what you are saying and when i feel i had a few days and things got backed up i get very overwhelmed - cranky and panicky feeling .
    Today was one of those days as it seemed everyoom was cluttered including my car which is my office on wheels and i hate it cluttered !!

    Today
    1-) i worked x 7pts ( 6 is considered a FT day but i am not FT technically i am per deim and non benefitted )

    2)-came home cleaned out my car actually had dh take it to the fancy car wash that vacuums it hand dries it etc for 15$ it was such a mess.

    3) did a little decluttering at home and dh had the kids do some while i was working .

    4) napped ( much needed as i only had 4 hrs to sleep last night )

    5) all the kids but the youngest are out at friends or work or parties so its dh and i and the 9 yo - will probably do catch up paperwork while waiting for midnight and have little party from 11-12 - go out bag pots and pans and come in and go to bed !!

    Today I wash, dried a load of laundry and put away a load of laundry

    Freed the car from the driveway. Slushy yesterday and froze last night so the car was stuckto the driveway! used the plow truck to push it off the frozen slush.

    Picked up Sammy from the vet hospital.

    Packed some of DS's school stuff in the trunk of the car.

    Worked on a lap quilt.
