I'm 15/54's of the way there! That's 27.8%!!

Well, It's 9:40, and my sink is shining. I think I'm gunna hop into bed now and continue to read my accounting text until I fall asleep.

Today was a good day...only 6 points...but, I was feeling sick, so I think it's good.

I forgot to mention...

I got 34 wonder woman points today!! :)'s been a loooong few days.

I never know where to begin when I finally have a moment to post, because there's always soooo much!

I'll just type what comes to me, in no particular order.

I have a new niece. My brother and sister-in-law have a new daughter, Hannah Marie. She was born Sunday, November 26th, at 4:57am. She was 7 pounds, 9 ounces, and 20.5 inches long. She's also got a really full head of hair. She's cute. :)

I've been trying to do the fly lady thing...they tell you to take baby steps. They send you this email when you start for your first 31 days...but school's been crazy, and I've been bad at forming the habits. I've done what I could, but I don't feel like I'm ready to move on to new things I'm starting over at day one today. It really appeals to me. They really are manageable steps, and it feels like a game, so I have a relatively easy time with it...(hehe...i bet you're wondering why I failed, then!) Changing the subject! I'm starting over today! Today is day one and I'm supposed to: shine my sink.

I had a BLAW test today. ( sil Michelle likes that I can call a class that!) It took a lot of time to finish up things so that I'd feel like I was ready for it...but now that it's over, I'm back on track to plow through things on my agenda. My current status is: Thursday, November 2nd with 4 items remaining...but I'm going to blow that out of the water tomorrow!

My to-do list for tomorrow (and beyond):

Ok, So I got a little carried away. I know I can't do all that in one day...but I'm totally excited...because that's all that stands in my way of the status, "November 14th, 4 items and counting."

Anyone wanna make guesses on how far I'll be by the end of tomorrow? I'd love to hear from'll drive me on towards the goal!! :)

Ok, I'm off to shine my sink and go to bed! Goodnight, all.

An update on my progress...

In the time since my last post, I've:
-talked with Joy
-put away all our laundry
-got dirty clothes ready for the car
-(listening to Harry Potter book 5 the whole time!)
-shined my sink (I'm going to try the FLY thing. We shall see.)
-did dishes (for the first time ever since I've been married. hubby's so good to me!)

I need to go finish up the dishes...I had to run new water, and it was too hot for a moment.

Thanks to all of you wonderful ladies that are so encouraging to me!

It's a good day!

Things are going very well today! I got to sleep in a bit before my 9am class. Then I was at school from then until 12:15ish. I walked home, relaxed for a bit, and now I'm working on things that have been on my to-do list for a long time. I don't really feel pressured to do homework at the moment, since I've been at full force with that all instead I'm working on the things I've sorta put on the back burner the last several days: laundry, dishes, and other worthwhile commitments.

I've been asked several times about my point's not very's pretty much just something silly I do to keep myself motivated!
- I get one tally mark for each thing I cross off of my to-do list, whether it be school, work, chores or even devotions.
- These tally marks are called super woman points because, when I earn them, I feel like I'm Super Woman, duh!!
- If I am able to get 30 points in one day (That's a lot of stuff!) They turn into wonder woman points...because, really, some days you just feel like Wonder Woman!!
- Something new I've added since starting this blog (because I've been so much better at being productive) is that if I get 50 things done in one day (maybe happens once every couple of months!) I get to buy myself something nice! (Flowers, a piece of jewelry or clothes, my favorite food/restuarant.)

So, there you have it!

Have a wonderful day ladies!!

Work Journal

I've been meaning to write every day this week...but, everytime I sit down to do it, I think of something else I need to be doing. I'm not very good at keeping this thing updated. I need to be better at updates, because the whole purpose of this thing is so that I'll be able to look back on what I've done and not be discouraged. So, I think I'm going to try to keep more of a work journal (stealing the idea of one of my brother-in-laws).

7am - woke up, got things ready to go to Topeka, made my to-do list for the day
8am - took Micah to school, drove to Topeka, and went to mom's house to print out statutes for
BLAW assignment #2
9:10am - 2:30pm:
Stats assignment
Devotions (11/1 in Indeed, re-read/skimmed psalms 106-118, reviewed verses in Job and
Wrote out answers to BLAW assignment
Recopied Stats notes from 10/16
3pm-5:30pm: Bible study with Ruth
Then I went to mom's house to pick some things up, went to Walmart, then came home to spend some time with my hubby. Now i'm just sitting down again to work on more school. It's 8:30pm and I still have 33 things on my to-do list. I think I underestimate the time it takes to do things.

Hope all is well with everyone.
