Journaling

Today's Wins:
1.  Spent time with an old friend I don't see often enough
2.  Cleaned up the dining room and a lot of the living room.
3.  Got the girls to go to sleep without a parent laying with them or patting them.

How I'll Improve:
1.  Was the middle of the night, but still technically today - yelled a lot when they woke me up 4 times in 2 hours.  Will work on the yelling.  Once I start getting better sleep.
2.  Probably could've folded a basket or two of laundry instead of standing around wondering what project to start on next.
3.  The girls watched maybe an episode too many of Bubble Guppies.

On a scale of 1-10, how productive were you today?  6

Did you accomplish all of your goals and tasks?  If not, what got in the way?  No, have you seen that list?  There aren't enough hours in the day.  I made good progress, though.

What was today's most memorable moment?  Geneva laughing that fabulous belly laugh when we were playing Silly Street - we'd each had to run into the kitchen to make crazy faces at Daddy and Cora.  Cora singing "I can't help falling in love with you" in a Louis Armstrong voice at bedtime - we all collapsed into laughter and laughed for at least a full minute.

What's one thing you learned today?  My buddy James has a new girlfriend.  Guess I can't hook him up with Stacy.  Also, you can make brittle, as in peanut (or macadamia nut) brittle, in the microwave.

What's one act of kindness you performed today?  Hmm.  I fell down on this one today.  Will fix tomorrow.

I have a new journal.  It is fabulous.  I won't be able to use the daily pages until 1/1, but I'm dying to follow these steps, use this format to help me focus on the good and important things in my life each day.  There's a monthly and weekly overview, then a morning plan and evening review, as well as weekly and monthly review pages.  I'm so excited to have something as a guide to help keep my jumbled thoughts a bit more cohesive and coherent.  I hope, at least.  

I also bought new pens.  They're sweet.
