List of things I did NOT do today

1. work out
2. eat healthily
3. sit on the floor and play with my kids
4. have patience with my children
5. go to the WIC office
6. buy plane tickets
7. pay rent
8. talk to good friends
9. read my sister's long email
10. read any of my book
But I DID wash, dry, fold, AND put away 3 loads of laundry, which is quite an accomplishment for one day. And I took care of two kids all day. And I squeezed an hour-long nap in while the kids were down. And I ate tons of Halloween candy; it's taking over my life and my kitchen, so the best thing to do is eat it so it's all gone.
I feel lousy about my lack of accomplishments today, but I need to get over that. I need to be more of a be-er and not such a do-er. It's one of my hubrises.

Hehe! Well, I guess I should make a list of things I did not do today as well! Great job doing all that laundry! There is a balance and I am trying to find it! Soooo hard to find in either leaning! I have not mastered this and struggle with it daily! :) Seriously though! I'm going to make my list! ;) Thanks for your transparency! We all need that! :)

Here's what I find so hilariously ironic--when I saw you and Ashley lookin' like pageant contestants walking from Albertson's at like 9:30 in the morning, I thought to myself, "I'm never up and runnin' with the kids that early looking so good!"

Hubrises. Nice.

When you figure out how to get over it and be more of a be-er, let me know!
