I got up and did my workout. Today was upper body.
After my workout I had my superfood protein shake with Recover in it.
I got things ready for the day and then got Ethan up.
I took him to school and then headed to the library to work for the morning. I had book club call and loved the conversation today. It was about relationships. It reminded me of a verse about the Seasons of Relationships so I have included it here.
After book club, I got some work done until it was time to go and meet Paul and CM for lunch. I had chicken, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts for my third meal of the day while sitting with Paul and waiting for CM to come. We enjoyed some great conversation and laughs and then I headed out to get some more work done before picking Ethan up from school.
Another favourite verse that the conversation this morning brought up for me was the one by Marianne Willemsen. I sent this to Paul and CM for shining their bright lights today which brought out mine too!
I got Ethan from school and we headed home. I made dinner which was goat stew and cauliflower for me, did the dishes, and then he and I played the Cashflow board game. It is educational and fun for both of us and Ethan gets to practice his math skills as I have him do the math.
I put Ethan to bed and read him a couple of chapters in The Land of Stories and then did a bit more work before heading to bed myself.
I felt really good to have followed my schedule today and accomplished so much due to it! I look back on the overwhelm that I was in before my schedule and I am not really sure how it is that I wasn't able to find the time to keep up with the dishes, the laundry, etc. I was busy being busy!
Do you have a schedule? If not, I encourage you to give it a chance! It is really working well for me. As my mentor, Suzan, says, you can choose to use it or choose not to use it any given day. the beauty of having it is that it is home base and so when you stray off course, you are well aware that you are off course. It is then a choice!. Thursday I am choosing to not use my schedule as I am heading to the spa with my Mom for our birthday celebration together. It's going to be a fun day!
