All of my recent posts have been self-loathing and bemoaning my laziness. But this one will champion my productivity and ambition! A good change of pace if you ask me…
What did I do today exactly? you may be asking. Well, let me tell you.
1. Read my Bible and Day 31 of The Purpose-Driven Life
2. Went to church
3. Went to Walmart and bought toiletries, a plant, a pot, and some soil
4. Went back to church for a children’s ministry meeting
5. Potted new plant and repotted old plant
6. Emailed 3 of my old friends to see what they’re up to
7. Went shopping for hiking pants and scored a $9 North Face t-shirt as well as awesome-fitting ski pants AND hiking pants (I have such a hard time finding pants that fit, that whenever I do find pants that fit, I pretty much buy them regardless of cost. The hiking pants are The North Face and were $50. The ski pants are Columbia and were $65 on sale. Was it my shopping day or what? See pics of my finds below).
8. Called 3 girls from care group to catch up
9. Made 3 cards–a baby shower one, a sympathy one, and a so-sad-you’re-leaving one
10. Went to Home Depot to buy Travis a part he needed for his DIY plumbing job (more about that below)
11. Did laundry
12. Cooked dinner and did the dishes
13. Researched identity theft and submitting a fraud report to the Social Security office (one John Glenn has his name under my SSN! He hasn’t yet spent the millions of dollars I don’t have but I don’t want some guy’s name under my SSN!!)
14. And now I’m blogging!!
It has been a very productive day, I must say. And I love this feeling!! I don’t think I’m quite out of my funk (especially the eating junk food and exercising part) but at least I wasn’t a bum today!
So here are the pics of my way-awesome purchases today:
Travis was very productive today too, except he has only been working on one stinkin’ project since we got home from that church meeting–installing a pressure-reducing valve on our main water line. The water pressure in our house is something like 130 psi–twice what it’s supposed to be!! So in consideration of our pipes and water fixtures, we’re putting a valve on the water line to reduce the pressure. He’s also putting a water shut-off valve in our coat closet so that we don’t have to go all the way into the crawl space to shut the water off in an emergency. Travis had some defeats at first with the soldering but he’s gotten a long way–as I type, the water is shut off so that he can connect the PRV with the main water line. My fingers are crossed for him!
