8 Things I Accomplished This Week.


This week has been less than productive in a lot of ways as I’ve been a little under the weather and laziness kind of became a priority. I’m behind on laundry, my kitchen has looked better and my husband cooked dinner two nights in a row (he’s such a keeper). So yeah. It’s been that kind of a week. But in the name of Positive Thinking, I decided to play along with Mama Kat’s last prompt for this week’s Writer’s Workshop and list some things I did accomplish this week in between huddling on my couch and drinking lots of water and tea and waiting to go to bed again.


  1. 200w-5.gif.gifI signed my 7 year old up for a week of Trolls themed Ballet Camp this summer. My 10 year old will be doing a week of Scratch programming summer camp.
  2. Before my cold kicked into high gear, my team trivia group came in 3rd place after one heck of a game. I love our group because we have very eclectic knowledge spheres. When we join forces we can be unstoppable.
  3. I found out who my Whiskey Buddies were on one of those Facebook quizzes. Important stuff, guys.
  4. 200w-4.gif.gifI folded at least one load of laundry when my husband complained that he had nothing to wear. I left the other loads unfolded until eventually my ten year old decided it would be easier to take his clothes upstairs and fold them himself. Huzzah! The seven year old and I are still in a standoff. Who will blink first?
  5. 200w-2.gif.gifI took my dog to his grooming appointment when I really didn’t feel like it. I also picked him up from said appointment and picked up my kids from school and kept them all breathing until bedtime. Honestly, I think I deserve an award for this. Or at least some good chocolate.
  6. 200w-3.gif.gifI cleaned / organized my desk in my office – you have to accept my low standards of clean, but I can assure you – major progress was made. So many papers were recycled this week guys.
  7. I started counting my calories again. I’m not actually limiting them yet, I’m just kind of giving myself a starting out progress report before I dive in and join my husband in his new diet that seems to be working like… a thing that works really well. Seriously, I have to hurry up and lose weight before he gets all toned and hot without me.
  8. giphy3I made myself try on a whole bunch of jeans and then didn’t buy any of them because none of them were perfect. Even though they were on sale. Then I went to a bookstore where I didn’t buy any books. That’s its own kind of accomplishment, really.

I could probably go on, but I don’t want to brag too much about how awesome I am. Or do I? I mean if you have like an award that you’ve been waiting to give out, I get it. I’m kind of a big deal.

What have you accomplished this week?

Leave a comment and I’ll respond with enthusiastic cheering, okay?

    TOTES productive!!! Especially the jean experience sound extremely familiar. At least now you know which jeans you don’t want!

    Great list! There are times when it’s totally appropriate to make laziness a priority.

    The other day my 13 and 11 year old were supposed to sort all of the clothes and then take them to the respective rooms. They only did part of the sorting of the clothes. I ended up having to help them.

    I’m glad you are feeling better.

    Sorry to hear that you have been under the weather. I hope you are on the mend. I don’t fold my kid’s laundry anymore. I stuck it up and place it on their bed ha ha! Gosh, they hate my new tactic. They are teens though it won’t kill’em. Good for you on all you did while being sick 🙂

      I’m definitely on the upswing. Today I feel downright human. My oldest (10) normally does his own laundry start to finish but he was dragging his heels. Normally I can only get my 7 year old to put away the folded laundry. Waiting for her to fold it is generally futile lol.

      Mine will do it if I ask…sometimes. I worry about how much soap they think the machine needs verses how little I have told them it really needs. The dishes though , they can have those ha ha. Glad to hear you are feeling human that is always a plus LOL.

      Pod laundry detergent! It’s not cost effective but it is idiot proof.

      That is a great idea! Cost effective or not.
