Sometimes, it seems like I’m lucky if I get one thing crossed off my To Do List in a week. Tasks get added much more often than they are completed. Why do I have all this inspiration, creativity, ambition, idealism, only to be held back by the constraints of time?!  While it feels like nothing is getting done, I need to step back and realize that I do accomplish a lot that never even makes it on my To Do List.  There are after all only 24 hours in a day. Today, instead of making a To Do List, I’m making an Already Did List.

Today I already…

  • Changed 6 diapers
  • Cut Baby’s finger nails
  • Hand-washed two baby sweaters and two wool diaper covers
  • Washed two loads of laundry
  • Washed one load cloth daipers
  • Folded and put away five loads
  • Loaded dishwasher, and remembered to run it
  • Unloaded dishwasher
  • Cleaned the bathroom
  • Did half a yoga work out
  • Made a healthy dinner
  • Talked to a client
  • Worked
  • Took out the compost and recycling
  • Made All-Purpose Cleaner
  • Walked the dog

…all this while keeping Baby happy, loved, fed, clean, and nurtured, and on little bits of broken sleep. 

What’s on your Already Did List today?
