    I felt the same way on Monday and I “forced” myself to do something and it worked. Ok, I did the basic but ran a whole bunch of errands. Some how when I don’t feel like moving at home I do feel like running around outside of home! LOL!
    You are doing excellent in crossing out so many on that list already!

    YOU CAN DO IT AMY!!

    Keep it up, I’m sure you’re doing great! I have finished my laundry, sweeping, all trash (which I forgot to add),and dishes. Now on to the next thing on the list and I also forgot to add bathe the dogs…fun.

    woo hoo! youre moving right along! I had things to do today, but had to take the baby to the dr instead. the poor guy has an ear infection. I did get my costco run out of the way though šŸ™‚

    You know what? Thanks for posting this! I have a few of those things on my list and I am just sitting here reading blogs, I am not motivated what so ever. You have motivated me to get going!
    I don’t have it listed on my blog, but I need to
    *do the dishes *put load of laundry away *make dental appt. *sweep wood floors *sweep outside *make summer stir fry for dinner *do my devotional *finish Charlotte’s Web with boys

    Ahh! You don’t know how much it has helped me to see your list today!

  • Karen August 11, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    Oh my goodness girl! That is more than I hope to accomplish in a week! So, sorry, no mean comments from me if you don’t get it all done. I’m in awe at everything you’ve accomplished so far!

  • Meeks August 11, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    Another way to have accountability is twittering about it! Good luck with your list! Whatever you get done will fantastic!

  • Amy Bowman August 11, 2010 at 6:06 pm

    @ jeana- I keep finding myself doing things and adding it to the list just for the fun of crossing it off-like spot clean the couches!
    @ marie-so far so good on teaching instead of reacting. It does help that my youngest is at gma’s today…:) Have a great time swimming, I think we will do that tomorrow.

  • Marie @ Chocolate-Covered Chaos August 11, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    Wow! I love “teach instead of react to children”! This is something I pray about and really need to work on. Great idea to put in on your list.
    Hope you’re having a productive day! I’m taking the kiddos swimming, because I know I’ll be really busy tomorrow.

  • Amy Bowman August 11, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    @ jeana-I was starting to regret posting it–i’m only 1/3 of the way done–but thanks to your comment I’m gonna keep at it!
    @ AlliLilly-no, not an everyday list. Things piled up which is why I needed accountability! Although, I was thinking as I worked, if everyone wrote down everything they did in a day, it would end up being a pretty long list. Try it, you might be amazed at how much you do without giving yourself credit for it or knowing it..
    @Pam-lol. you can write mean comments b/c I asked for it by going public. Read my comment to AllyLilly, I have a feeling you do more than you think.
    Thanks for your comments and encouragement everyone.
    Off I go, oh how I’d rather sit here and read/write..

  • Pam @ diy Design Fanatic August 11, 2010 at 4:09 pm

    Dang, that is a long list for one day! How can we write mean comments if most of us are lucky to get half that stuff done in a day?

  • AliLilly August 11, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    Please please please tell me this is not an “everyday” to do list!! I have been a bit blog neglectful the past two days because I had to clean our 2 bedroom APT, and do laundry for the THREE of us! If you can pull all that off and keep your blog this awesome! I’m just gonna pack up my bags and leave bloggville! hahahaha!
