Semi-Good Day

Well today, I woke up immediately got dressed, took hubby to work, came home and immediately jumped on the treadmill for 15 mins. [100 calories burned]. I then had some p-nut time, put him down for his morning nap, and started our lunch [hamburger helper-cheeseburger macaroni]. After lunch we had 15 mins of playtime outside [since it is so cold], when I brought him back inside he threw the biggest fit in the world. I let him cry it out until he decided to come and help mommy “bless” other people by getting rid of some of his stuffed animals [well he just played with some toy he forgot he had and I did all the work]. “Blessing” is when you declutter your house by giving your unwanted, unused, probably won’t touch again items to Goodwill or other places/people. I filled up another bag today! I’m doing pretty good with the decluttering part. Tomorrow I’m going to try to tackel some of the kitchen stuff that I don’t use or that is broken that I for some reason wanted to hang on to, hopefully I’ll fill up another bag then. I look at it this way, the more I give away, the more I don’t have to clean.

Hubby is loving the new organizational thing that I’m doing. He still thinks that I am going to fall off the band wagon and go back to my old ways, but I don’t want that to happen and I am really trying my best to just make this a habit so it won’t result in me going back to my old ways.

Anywho, on a completely other note…I watched a new show tonight called “the book of daniel”, now I was a little skeptical at first because I thought it was going to be real blasphemous, in which case I couldn’t tolerate watching it; but it really wasn’t. I really did like the show. I hope it continues to be as good as it was tonight [all 2 hours of it] or at least stay on for a while so I can watch it, even if no one else does.

Back to my flylady stuff, I am in the process of creating my control journal, I want to post a picture of it when I get it completely finished. It is really cute and a create motivational tool for me. I’ll explain that when I post a picture.

Anyway, I’m going to go get on the treadmill before I go to bed so I’ll be good and tired. I am hoping to be in bed by at least 12. My plan is to keep moving back the time I go to bed so that I am in bed no later than 11 and up no later than 8 EVERYDAY!!! I figure 11 is a good time because I am usually watching something on TV that comes on at 10 and doesn’t go off till 11, so I could hit the sack right after my tv show and have dreams about whatever episode I just watched. Does anyone have some tv shows that they are addicted to? My main ones right now is Grey’s anatomy, Desperate Housewives, and Nip/Tuck! Anyways, p-nut will have a bedtime of 8 and I will have a bedtime of 11. We will both be up no later than 8 am and we will be happy happy clams, at least I hope we will be.

Speaking of the p-nut, I hope he doesn’t wake up from the noise of the treadmill. I want him to stay asleep all through the night. Problem about living in a studio apartment is that everything is joined together and their is NO ROOMS! so everything that is going on can be heard everywhere. Alot of times p-nut will wake up just from the sound of me typing, but he usually falls right back to sleep. Good thing.

OH, one other thing before I go workout, me and my mother went and looked at some houses for rent around our neighborhood.  We found two, I called about both of them and one is already rented out [the one i really liked, darn!] and the other one hubby didn’t sound too thrilled about but it has to be better than this place.  Besides it looks exactly like my folks and granny’s houses, same layout and everything.  I think it would be perfect for us.  Anyway, who knows when we will ever move, but at least I’m looking.

    hmm, i forgot about Book of Daniel being on, ok not really forget. I, like you, thought that I wouldn’t be able to stand watching it… so i didn’t bother. Haha. Maybe I’ll check it out next week, though. And btw, shows that I’m addicted to.. Lost. I ADORE that show. :) Mom gets AJ and I sit enthralled for 60 minutes. haha
