A long week. A cold for me and nobody else. But there is just soooo much to do to get ready for December. So much that I did...nothing.

Well, that's not entirely true. I sat down last week and made a list. A monster TO DO list. I was feeling scattered and like I had one million things I should be doing but couldn't just pick one and do it. So, along came the list. And, it's big. But I find it so much easier to have something to look at and tell me what to do. It's too bad that a stay at home mom can't have a boss that assigns daily tasks.

I also took time out to do this on Thursday;

I got the inspiration from one of my favourite bloggers, Meg and she wrote about it here;

I love Meg. I love her positive attitude. I love the colours on her website. And most of all I love that she remembers to take pictures of her Craft Thursday. Cause I didn't. ;)

Well, then....

Clearly I'm not all that great at this blog thing. Which is rather curious, seeing as I spend HOURS every week in front of this computer.

This year, like very year, has gone quickly. But my word stuck with me and I'd have to say it was one of the more productive years. Instead of putting things off, I managed to stay with TODAY a lot. Not all the time. Let's not get carried away, now.

I was painting the playroom/massage room AGAIN today. I keep repainting that room and never liking the colour. I hope I'm happy with this one. I went way out on a limb and painted it...are you ready for this...white. Well, off white. Swiss Coffee to be exact.

So looking forward to working in the room now.

I did it. That was easy. :D

Now, how do I add stuff on the sides?

Sick babies....tis the time of year.

Interesting. Same time as last year, both girls have been sick on and off for weeks now. Hannah had the worst of it, having some bizarre hive outbreak for two full weeks before it ended in two days of fever. Chloƫ is home sick from school again today, which she doesn't seem too sad about.

As for me and my TODAYS, well, some are better than others in terms of focus and getting stuff done. My oh my, do I have attention problems. I start something and then find myself in another room doing something else. Sigh. I wonder if I could nail my feet to the floor until I finish what I'm doing? I've found using my timer (a la Flylady) works quite well. I set it for 15 minutes and something in my brain knows not to move from that task until the timer rings. Must do this more.

Thanks so much for those of you that commented on my Word of the Year post. It really meant quite a lot to me. More than you'd think. In fact, Jerries comment last night prompted me to get my butt in gear today and post. goal for TODAY is to spruce up this little blog. I think a new picture is in order, don't you? Now if only I could remember how I did that.....
