    Yesterday I did great! Got everything on my daily list except I missed 1 hour of my hourly steps and somehow never made it out to the garden to check on things. Still took the puppy for a walk and got big steps in (30+ minutes), but missed my hourly by 1 hour.

    Today was an utter fail. I'm still working from home and able to squeeze in a few things here and there during lunch break but things went wonky and I worked through lunch. I was able to do some wiping, straightening and fluffing but never got around to wiping the bathroom or stick vac-ing the floor. Almost nothing else on my daily list. This is going to be rough week until work gets straightened out.

    DAILY
    Wipe / Straighten / Fluff
    Bedroom
    Kitchen
    Dining

    My laundry - started - in washer ready to dry
    Husband laundry - in dryer ready to put away
    Wash shower curtain
    Put away chargers
    Office desk
    Work office mail, shopping and bud
    Dust shelves

    I love lists. I make them very detailed. Like for the kitchen, I list everything that needs to be done, then mark it off. It makes me feel like I really did something. I do need to make a few lists. Okay that will be my to-do this week.

    Make a list.

    Got my healthy daily's done, came home early from work though with a pounding headache, I think it is allergy related as I slept with the window open, the neighbors had both mowed their lawns and the weeds in the field behind us were cut yesterday. After a couple migraine exedrin and a nap I feel much better. Will now work on one of the projects of the week. Good luck all on accomplishing your to do's. May God bless your day.

    Another big fail today. Worked through lunch again. Sat at my work computer ALL day and got a whopping total of 783 steps today, half of which came from putting around the kitchen getting dinner ready. Gonna be like this the next few days and probably in to next week as we wrap up the quarter. Ugh.

    Today, DH has to get to Sam's club and take DS2 to get his glasses fixed. I won't join in those activities since I'll be hitting the gym, make dinner and break down boxes to toss. Then, get ready and drive to work.

    I make a list so I don't forget. Sometimes it works and others I forget where I put the list....

    I do make a grocery list now that I don't do the shopping.
