One Day at a Time

{source}
Yesterday I was feeling very down, I had a list a mile long that I had written (in my head), that I needed to get accomplished that day and in the following few days. I didn't get a good sleep the night before, and desperately needed to go back to bed after Reggie left for work. And when I woke, I didn't feel any better. So my to do list? Got pushed to the back burner while I tried to get myself in gear to at least tidy up the house and have a shower! And by the end of the day, after supper, I realized just how little I had accomplished and felt even worse.

So this morning when I woke I decided not to make a long list, and to just do what I felt up to as the day progressed. And I decided I was only going to worry about today, taking one day at a time. So far it has been good. I caught up on some e-mails, got some pork ribs in the slow cooker for supper, I just put on a Christmas movie, I'm about to make some cookies and perhaps work on a few items for my shop, and then a little later I think Gunner and I will go for a walk and get some fresh air. So far today has been a good day, and I'm going to try to keep it going tomorrow!

  2. Sorry you had a crappy day Margie. Don't be too hard on yourself. My To Do lists are always quite aspirational...ie: totally unrealistic.
    Lof!
