I will spare you the rest of the details but lets just say the whole family was better and then worse within the span of this past week. I will say I have never felt that sick or been that still my whole life. I will also say food just seems awful at this point and I have lost a good 5 lbs. in about a two day period. So I should be posting my menu plan but I can't even think about that right now.
My point to telling you all this is that sometimes in life we do still need a plan but we must drastically alter that plan depending on the season. I am a list maker and a planner, not by nature, but by necessity because otherwise, nothing would get done around here. I was doing the 10 goals along with Money Saving Mom but decided 10 was too ambitious at this point, that is when I ran across the book Organized Simplicity. It was a free download for my Kindle App (on my Android phone).
She had a chapter in there that talked about her daily docket. What really got me was how she organized her daily docket. She limits herself to 10 things on her to-do list but then she takes her 3 top priorities for the day and those are her M.I.T.'s (most important tasks) - jackpot! I can do that. So I didn't have a printer at the time (my computer got a virus too - seriously, we were all sick, ha). So I just wrote mine down on paper (gasp) and I made my three most important tasks. And as you see on my paper, I did not cross off some things on my to-do list but all of my M.I.T.'s were crossed off (Sorry, MJ, I still need to send out your birthday present).
Someday, I may be back to getting it all done but as for today, I will just do the best I can with what I have and pray a lot. I know that prayer works better than anything.
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9
