Day 1184: Small Bites

Today was another good day.  Pretty similar schedule to the last several.  But, we did have soccer practice tonight for Little M.  It was fun to be outside with the family and enjoy some (finally!) nice weather.  I still just get a kick out of watching Darling A in the grass.  Too funny.

After we came home and got the kids in bed, HH pulled out the list he made for us of all the things we need to work on around the house and yard.  Well, not all of them, but some of the more important projects.

At first, I got pretty  overwhelmed.  I mean, I am bone tired from all the tasks I've been working on every day.  But, at the same time it feels good to be taking care of things.

Then again, looking at the list of all of the many things that still need doing--it started to feel like I will need to spend 2-6 hours of every day for the rest of forever working on projects around here.  Ugh.  I'm tired.

But, then I reminded myself of how doable it has been so far and how great and satisfied I feel at the end of the day for all I've been accomplishing.  Sure, I'm getting behind on my blogs.  And watching a little less on Hulu.  But, it's really not that bad.  And our house and yard are looking a lot better.

I just need to take it one day at a time.  One project at a time.  One bite at a time until I've finished the whole pie.  Or enchilada.  Or, whatever it is.

Hooray for productivity!
