Life as Lou

This Week

  • January 13, 2012 3:15 pm

It has been one of those weeks where I feel like I’ve been going a hundred miles an hour without really getting anywhere. But that isn’t entirely true.  I have accomplished many things and I ought to give myself some credit.

-I closed up my Tupperware show and got $500 worth of stuff free because I had such a good show.

-I worked out upcoming Augason Farms posts.  Very Happy to be back on their advertising for 2012!

-I wrote 2.5 pages in a project I’m working on.

-I felt guilty about not getting more done on that project.

-I went to Target- twice.  Bought stuff we needed now and got good deals on stuff for the kids for next winter.

-I did some work on 72 hour kits and disaster preparedness to prep for a presentation I’m giving at the end of the month.

-I bought some stuff for our 72 hour kits and updated them.

-I taught Seminary all five mornings this week.  Got through Judges and Ruth.

-I did Maggie’s hair super cute most mornings this week.

-I took the dog to the vet.

-I made an exceptionally good dinner last night.

-I bought a gift for my sister and sent goodies to Grandpa.

-I got Jonas to both piano lessons and cub scouts.

-I built a huge train track that went from the living room all the way to my bedroom.

-I worked on obedience training the dog.

-I watched a friend’s children.

-I washed dried and folded nearly every piece of laundry in the house.  It is all dirty again, but it was clean.  It was.

-I made cookies.

-I brought cookies to three friends.

-I handled a nasty night terror Gabe had that kept me up a good portion of last night.

-I talked to my mom on the phone. A lot.

-I completed week two of no diet coke or caffeine. I’m going dry for the whole month, and then I can have it on special occasions.

-I did a ton at work; computer glitches, registration problems, ordering. It kept me hopping.

-I kept up with current events (a nice way of explaining me mindlessly jumping from one news story to another).

-I made peace with something that was stressing me out.

-I had something healthy for breakfast almost every day this week.


And hey, the day is young, right?  It is going to be one of those really full weekends.  So far nothing is planned for Monday, so I am looking forward to that.




  1. Well, as I sit here drinking my full-of-sugar-and-caffeine Mountain Dew, I commend you on your cold turkey caffeine kick. I embrace my caffeine addiction. :)

    Wow! Impressive! I’m totally in admiration for everything you do!! WonderLeah;)
    Love your gorgeous cards with this beautiful surge of butterflies (hope surge is the good word… hihi;)
    Gros bisous♥

  3. Tanya says:

    I think we should all keep lists like this – lists of what we do accomplish! It makes you feel so much better about the things that you never got to on the list that week! ;)

  4. Tanya says:

    oh and you forgot to add to that list “saved bone-headed friend from totally self-made dog problem!” Thanks again!!! :)

  5. Lisa says:

    Impressive!! You are amazing, girl. I think I should write a list like this. I constantly berate myself for not getting more done, but I really do get a lot of things done. It’s never remotely close to 100% of what I should do, but it’s still a lot of things.

  6. Nicole says:

    I’m impressed! You shouldn’t be so hard on yourself… give yourself a break… you are doing a fabulous job!

  7. Oh that is an impressive list – be proud ♥

  8. Zarah says:

    You sure are the busy little bee, hun!! WTG!

  9. Renee says:

    Wow, I am tired just from reading the list and ready to go back to bed. LOL Love the list AND the card. I do have one question…How DO you get those tiny butterflies inked? I “think” I have that exact punch and love it but would love to know how to ink them. Slow down and have a wonderful day!
