At the end of last year, when I was feeling a bit out of sorts and not at all organized because of a lot going on, I started a project called “Just One Thing.”
And when I started that series (which, admittedly, was short-lived), I explained it this way:
“I’ve noticed that I am not alone in this. I’ve noticed that many of my friends are struggling with all the stuff going on in their lives, too.
It’s hard to be creative… it’s hard to get things done…when there is so much stuff going on. Am I right?
With everything going on, I pledged to myself that if I could just get ONE THING on my to-do list done, I would feel better about everything.”
Fast forward six months and I’m feeling the same way!
The kids got out of school almost a month ago, and their papers are still on the dining room table in a pile. The papers need to be organized and put away.
The kids got home from camp last week and their laundry, while clean now (yay!), and other stuff (including their awesome letter-writing kits I DIY’ed!) are currently piled up on the dining room table.
I had a minor DIY mishap which landed me at urgent care. I’m fine – a cut from working in or near the shed got infected, then I had an allergic reaction to the medicine! – but sidelined for a few days (that’s why there wasn’t a Friday Five last week!). Projects are piling up…
I know of at least four lightbulbs that need changing.
You see what I mean.
So today is Do the Little Things Day. My mother-in-law is here visiting, so she is going to hang with the kids while I get these things done. It’s always doing these little things that, while not huge projects, make me feel like I’ve accomplished a lot in one day!
What are you up to today?? Share one thing in the comments you’d like to do today – whether something small like changing a battery or lightbulb, or something a little bigger like getting your desk organized, or something big like painting a room! I’d love to hear what you’re up to!
Can’t get stuff done today? Pin this for later:
