I’m a little late getting this post written. It’s definitely been one of those days. The temptation to not follow through on this is great tonight. I’m wired from a PTA meeting that left me beyond frustrated. I have a headache from skipping dinner to go to said PTA meeting. I have a child asking me what color to make a mule on his homework (brown!) and a teenager who is well, being a teenager. I also have to be at work at 7:15a.m. tomorrow morning. This being to work early stuff is not for me. And I really, really just want to finish my book. Since this is usually where I write about what I’ve been reading, let me just say that Gone Girl is living up to the hype. Whoops, anyone have some cheese and crackers for my whine?
I think it is time to talk about what (if anything) I’ve actually accomplished during the last seven days. I did make great progress on J’s bookcase, one of the Around the House projects on my master list so I’m going to share that project tonight. My idea is to share one (or more) successful accomplishment every seven days. I’d love to hear about what projects you accomplished in the last week as well!
Let me show you the bookcase project in pictures:
I cheated and just used the previous post picture as the “before” photo. Here is a how it looked mid-project. I started it on Friday after I’d been sick all week (I have no idea why I thought sifting through dusty books was a good idea):
J said I could have part of his bookshelf to store my preschool books. We still sorted out quite a few to go new homes.
The finished bookcase looks like this:
We dedicated the top shelf to new Nanobloks and Lego projects. I put the chapter books in a bit of alphabetical order although I certainly don’t expect or care if they stay that way. Overall, I think it looks great.
It’s important to take time and acknowledge successes to stay motivated to continue to follow through on projects. What successes have you had lately?
