I have a to do list and because of my resolution, at the top it says SMILE, so if I'm going to change it from a "to do" to a "to be"--I don't want to write: "Be Smiley", so I guess I should write: "Be Happy". And keeping with my not taking too much on at once, let me add to my list for today:
- Be more Thoughtful
- Be more Forgiving
- Be more Understanding
Also, on my "to be" list--be more healthy. I have been working on that using my Wii. I didn't get the "Wii fit" but i got the Active Sports. I am so sore because of the squats and lunges--but I WON'T GIVE UP. The temperatures have made it impossible to go outside and run so I'm doing all I can inside.
Sidenote #1: The other day I went to the garage and as I looked around I saw one of my bins of Legos--As I talked about organizing and getting rid of things, let me just say I refuse to get rid of Legos. I have to have something for my little grandsons to play with when they come ; ) Anyway, I couldn't help but think of this
I get very excited when I realize Kyle will be home near the end of April ; ) He is having a great time at BYU, and that makes me a very happy mama.
Sidenote #2: Only 2 weeks until the opening ceremonies of the Olympics--CAN'T WAIT!!!!
Sidenote #3: Organizing Tip for today: I'm just going to copy sweetpea's comment from my last post. Heck, she had GREAT ADVICE. She is a young mom with 5 kids (2 sets of twins). I really don't know how she does all that she does:
Some things that work for me:
1. Family Organization Binder:
I have sections for each member of the family, the ward list, other phone numbers, medical info, school stuff, etc. It's easily accessible, and keeps everything together where you can find it.
2. Go through your mail everyday. Throw away/shred junk mail, and file away other mail. I have a "to be filed", "to be paid" folders, and a coupon bin so it can all be taken care of right away.
3. Go through your magazines every month. Throw away the ones you aren't going to keep. Get the magazine holders for those you want to keep-but only a select few. For decorating/other ideas, tear pages out of the magazine, and place in a binder just for that purpose."
