My listless week!

11 Jan

So if you’ve read this blog at all – you know I am a list queen/addict! I make lists upon lists and hardly ever finish one completely! This week, along with my new anti-mom jean week, I’ve decided to anti-list it too!

Of course I started out with a list of things I wanted to do πŸ˜‰ haha!Β Goals for this week: Dance my butt off, get dressed up for no reason, listen to music all day, sing in the shower, enjoy some down time, be crafty (duh), smile!

The difference is that I didn’t pick specific days or really any chores at all! So far I have successfully completed five things! I’ve also done more chores and relaxing than I have in the past few months! So I’ve come to realize that when I make myself a list of things to do I spend 95% of the day just stressing about it πŸ˜›

Yesterday was the day I got dressed up for no reason and even though it included a t-shirt I’d say it was pretty fashionable compared to my usually baggy t-shirts & sweatshirts! Emma and I even had a fun photoshoot:











We went out to lunch just the two of us and had a blast! After lunch we took a stroll through the shopping center and back just in time for nap time! I did my best to spend that entire day without a schedule and just enjoy the day and I’d have to say it was a complete success!

Today has been an uneventful day! Just the way I like it! I decided to take the day off from chores (except for the dishwasher) and spent the entire day playing with the girls. Now that it’s nap time I’ve been sitting on the computer thinking how wonderful it has been to not be stressed out – then my phone beeped five times within 15 minutes. It’s ridiculous how many emails I get in one day and half of them are from websites that by signing up for them – I automatically get an email everyday. So to move on with my de-stressing I decided to de-clutter. I spent the past half hour unsubscribing to all these things that I spend opening and closing on a daily basis just so my phone won’t beep at me for no reason! Just getting that done has done amazing things to my mood!!

Now all I can think about is what else I can do that will prevent me from wasting time on a daily basis?

I’ll be back with some more ideas! πŸ˜‰


Thanks for stopping by,


Love Always,

    I am impressed. As another Lister, I have such a hard time going without my lists. Think I’ll give it a try. Maybe give up lists for Lent. πŸ™‚

      You would be shocked at how amazing it feels to wake up without a list to do! I will admit it’s a little scary but it’s worth it!
