I read somewhere that you should write a page a day of everything you accomplished that day. I have been pondering quite a bit about it lately. I first thought it was a really good but didn’t think I had enough accomplishments in one day to actually fill an entire page. I think that maybe I just don’t do enough in a day. I know that when I started my gratitude journal I didn’t think that there would be enough to say but I ended up filling up at least a page if not more. I don’t know if I can fill up a page everyday of the things I accomplish so I’m just going to jot things down everyday and see what I have at the end of every week. Here is the first week of my accomplishment journal.

I successfully went to Target without any kids! None, zero, all by myself! Nick took the boys to get haircuts and took Dessa with because she was feed, happy and wouldn’t need me for at least 2 hours. We also had a family day at the beach. We packed up the cooler full of good picnic food, sprayed on several coats of sunscreen and headed to the beach. It was over 90 degrees today and the beach was packed. We did manage to find a shady spot under a tree to eat lunch. After that we went down to the water where the boys played with their sand toys and threw seaweed at each other. Dessa got to experience sand for the first time as well as dipping her toes in Elliott Bay. She was unimpressed by the whole thing. After spending lots of time in the freezing water and sun we headed to get gelato. The boys enjoyed it a lot and Odin discovered that dark chocolate is the best thing ever!

I actually got my butt up and got to my math class. It’s the end of the semester and it has been really hard to not skip, especially in my math class. The class has been mind numbingly easy and I have never felt that I needed to go to class to learn any of it. This entire semester I sat in the back of the class and worked ahead on the homework and then aced every test.

Went to both my math and english class today and managed not being too late for either. Being timely used to be something I was good at but since having kids its been difficult. I don’t know how many times I’ve been about to leave for class and something happened and I had to stay until it was resolved. Thank you universe for giving me understanding teachers .

I finally started to read my new book You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero. So far I really like it, even the intro is pretty good and I normally skip those. I’m hoping this is a self-help book that I can actually finish. I don’t know how many I start and they are so boring and clinical that I just give up. Sincero is actually funny and engaging, it’s like reading advice my friends or sisters would give. I’m pretty excited to keep reading and see if it stays interesting.

I woke up at 5:30 and stayed awake. I got ready for school, walked down to the corner Starbucks and got my own coffee and got to my math class early! Later on I went to my english class and took my final exam and feel like I totally failed it but I got all A’s on my papers, did well on all my quizzes and tests and turned in all the homework so I’m hoping I scraped by with a C as an overall grade because C’s get degrees, am I right? I also did the very last of my math homework, hooray! Not too shabby on the accomplishments today 🙂

I took my very last math test today! I still have my final on Tuesday but that’s whatever. I did get to class late because that’s just my life but I got there did my test and walked out in 15 minutes! I feel really confident about this test, answered all the questions including the bonus questions and wasn’t flustered by anything on the test. I also picked up Gray today because it was his last day of school! I wanted to cry but I held it together so the other mom’s didn’t think I was nuts. He did so well this year and I’m so proud of him and everything he accomplished. I don’t know when but at some point this year he turned into a big boy. It’s so crazy.

Woke up at 6am today. I consider that an accomplishment because it’s the weekend. There wasn’t much accomplished other than relaxation. Nick made dinner and we had a family movie night. Maybe the accomplishment was just having a nice day.
