Thank you, Mariah! I LOVE the idea (apparently, Matt's, but awesome regardless of who thought it up!) of a "What's Done" list.
So several of us have been stressing about the mountains of things to get done and the few tasks we can actually cross off our lists having completed them fully. I know I am....as I'm sitting here with my sewing machine in the back ground and the Jenga tower of dishes in my sink. It's a fun game actually....it's time for dinner...which dish can I pull out and wash without the entire stack crashing into a gajillion pieces?
What if we all took Matt's advice: For a few days (the number depending on just how behind and overwhelmed you are), don't make a to do list. Instead, make a "What's Done?" list. What have you accomplished? Even if it's "Everyone's still alive". That's my crowning moment for today for sure. At the end of the day, you'll have a long long list. So what if it's still Jenga in the kitchen or a natural disaster in the toy room....you've got a lot to smile about.
