Laura won the giveaway from January! February and March will be a combined giveaway of my new African Animal Set III.
Wow, it’s been too long since I’ve posted. Once you let a few days go by without writing a blog, it’s very easy to let a few more go by. The longer you go without writing, the harder it is to get back into the habit.
The same goes for most other things you should be (or want to be) doing almost every day. Last spring and summer, I committed to running every day. I didn’t always make it out there every day, but I tried to go running every single day. Towards the end of the summer, I got out of the habit of going, and I never got back to it for the entirety of the fall and Christmas season.
Lately as part of my evening routine, I vacuum the living room every night. Before I did this, I would have said vacuuming every day is excessive and unnecessary. For most people it might be, but for me, with all the dust and wood shavings I track up from the basement, it’s a necessity.
It’s important to do it every day, because if I plan to do it a couple of times a week, which would probably be fine, it won’t get done. I’ll say, I’ll just do it tomorrow! But if I have a goal of doing it every day, then I have to do it today. I can’t wait until tomorrow. So even if you miss a day, the next day you get right back into it.
So my new goal is to write something for you every day. Is there anything that you want to plan to do daily?
My daily routine is like this:
Wipe down sink and toilet
Bring down dirty laundry and start it if the machine is full
Empty dish rack
Plan breakfast and lunch
Work until Caleb wakes up
During the day, I plan to …
-work for at least an hour and a half in the basement
-run or do aerobic exercise for at least 30 minutes
-write for blog
-do Spanish (Rosetta Stone)
The evening routine is…
Clean up all the dishes and sink
Vacuum the living room
Sweep the kitchen and foyer and steps
