    Default October: Today's To-Do's

    Three things a day is all we ask.

    I was once told by a very wise friend that if he accomplished three things a day, he went to bed feeling like he had managed to be productive and that the day had not been frittered away.

    I have tried to live by this adage, and it does make me feel good when I can go to bed thinking that I ended the day with an accomplishment.

    So this is my challenge for October - three things a day. Post them; do them; let us know about it. That's it.

    It's only 930 and I've already listed 8 things on Craigslist, scrubbed the tub, and done the dishes. Go me! Now to tackle 2 months worth of coupon inserts.....

    I have the dishes washed and the binder made. The farrier should be here at 12:30 pm. Whatever will I do with all my free time afterward?

    Well, I failed miserably for September, so hopefully October will be better.

    1. Prep the veggies I got at the grocery today.
    2. Empty and reload the dishwasher.
    3. Clean out and wipe out refrigerator.

    Well, just got home from work, so I better get cracking!
