It’s AntiProcrastination Day!

  • Thanks to the Flylady—you can do anything for 15 minutes!– and Aranda—rockin’ tunes–, I pushed through and got several things done that have been calling my name for a while.  I think I’ve said it before, but it’s worth noting again…running a household takes a LOT of work!  Here’s a sample of what I accomplished
    • paid ALL the bills
    • paid and updated info on Pikepass
    • called ins. agent about roof inspection (we’ve had several of hail spells lately)
    • checked on rebate not yet received from Oct 08-will need to refax receipt
    • filed most papers in rudimentary filing box/”system”
    • hung up ALL clothes off of the floor/chair/chest/bed in my room
    • vacuumed my closet floor
    • called Cox Cable to make changes to service features and lower bill
    • mailed birthday cards for Feb and Mar birthdays
    • cleaned out my refrigerator (ew!)
    • scrubbed grout on bathroom counters (shiny!)
    • got oven fixed (ok, I did this last week, but wanted to mention it on my list of accomplishments anyway)
    • cleaned one of two dusty intake vents on the ceiling
    • paid a $4 outstanding dentist bill with a phone call
    • made donation to WaterIsLife.com (been talking about this since February)

Whew!  I’m sure I forgot to mention a few things—once I got going, there was no stopping me!    and THEN, Kevin and I did our Dave Ramsey, FPU homework–we created our zero based budget!  Whoa, that’s going to take some practice each month!

    Now I have to work on a little planning ahead—full on meal planning people!—to avoid last minute grocery store runs!

    Yea for you! Doesn’t it feel good to cross it off your list?

  3. 😀 Nice going young lady!!! You really were unstoppable! I love that you wrote that stuff down because it’s the little things like paying a $4.00 bill by phone that just make you feel so accomplished some days. It doesn’t take HUGE effort but it is one of those things that builds up in your mind until it is a much bigger chore.
    And hmmm…maybe I should get MY roof inspected by insurance before calling the roofers. We have had some hail…water actually leaked into one of our light fixtures last weekend so it’s time. Boo.
