Now that wasn't on my To Do list when the day began, but it was an amazing experience to witness between father and daughters. And I did get a lot done today: laundry, taking the girls to their dance classes, making a bit of art (which I'll share soon), a little bit of organizing (Day #2 Challenge was to clean my desk which I already did this past weekend, so I continued to organize a bit deeper), etc.. We even went to the bookstore for a calendar for Daniel's office after dinner (also unplanned). I'm proud to say even with the additional detour, we had dinner at home even though it would have been so much easier to eat out after going to the lab (we were good in saving money and being healthier--big steps). I was also good at the bookstore and didn't buy myself a single thing, no magazine, no clearance book, nothing (I realize that to conquer the clutter I need to get rid of stuff rather than bring more stuff home--this is huge for me). So I really need to celebrate all that I accomplished today rather than focusing on all that remains unfinished (like Zumba and a little extra sleep). I will find the right balance...... someday.
P.S. I'd share photos of my desk organization for Day #2, but my desk is still far from perfect (I have a lot of stuff) and the photos are not nearly as cool as today's detour. We'll see how tomorrow goes. Tomorrow I go to work.....time for a bit of that time management I'm not so good at.
