Thursday Thirteen...Things I Do Everyday

Here is a list of things I do just about every single day...besides talk about air cleaners!!!
1. Laundry - I tried to have just one laundry day during the week but with the addition of another baby it has become almost impossible.

2. Sing - I am not a good singer. I sing off key. Luckily my kids don't mind. We sing a lot.

3. Talk to Sherry on the phone. Almost everyday. It is just part of my routine.

4. Check my email. I have a little computer routine. I check my regular email, then my junk email, then blogs. I need to get in the habit of returning emails. It takes me a while.

5. Pray. Some days more than others... Sometimes it comes out in the form of "oh dear God please help me!!!" Other times it is more appropriate.

6. Cook. I think that is pretty standard. I rarely cook breakfast. I hate having dishes piling up in the morning so we eat a lot of cereal. Dinner is the big meal around here.

7. Check the mail. The mail comes pretty early here. If the kids see the mailman they always tell me - "Mommy, the mail is here....what did we get???" We signed up for a free trial of Netflix last year. I canceled it after the trial month was over. Jude still asks (almost daily) "did we get a movie?"

8. Watch T.V. I'd like to just get rid of it but I haven't made that step. Then I'd have to give up American Idol. LOL. It is so good this year.

9. Walk up and down the stairs a zillion times. We have a two story house and a basement. I am always running up and down the stairs. My legs get a good workout.

10. Weigh myself. I've heard you should only weigh yourself once a week but I can't stop myself. I've lost 13 pounds. It makes me mad when I don't anything bad the day before and I don't loose anything. GRRRRR..... But when I eat two hand fulls of M&M's the night before and my weight stays the same I just smile.

11. Drink coffee. Usually only half caff but today I am on the full octane stuff. I feel a little shaky.

12. Change diapers. I can't wait until that is no longer a chore. I've been changing diapers for 5 and 1/2 years. I have a while to go.

13. Tell my kids and husband that I love them. Even when I am completely aggravated with them. I still love them. Jude is cute - he just randomly tells me he loves me. It is sweet.

Thursday 13

I talk to Sherry everyday too, but on line. She's my sister. Tea instead of coffee and weighing happens in the morning. Come to think of it, I think it sets the tone of mood for the day.

I check my email everyday, pray everyday (can't get through the day without it!), watch tv every night and eat dinner at the same time, and tell my hubby and kids that I love them every day (sometimes more than once a day)! I try not to weigh myself everyday so I don't get discouraged! Happy TT

Congrats on the weight loss! I just wish I could get motivated!

Hmm- maybe if I did laundry EVERY day then I wouldn't get so behind! When will I ever learn??? : )

Nice list. :O)

I try the load of laundry a day, too, but I think it regenerates in the night while we sleep.
