Do you know what derails your capability of completing your to do lists? Being sniffly. I seemingly have some sniffles going on, and a certain pointed part of my face doesn’t want to stop drooling, especially when I bend over for something (and with little ones, that’s allthetime.) I would like to think it’s merely allergies, but really, let’s get serious, now – the kids just started school. Eleventy-billion kids are at their school (they are, I counted. Every last one. *ahem*). I’m pretty sure one of them brought me home a present, and it wasn’t a crayon-colored drawing. They brought me home a cold, dammit. “How was your day?”
“HERE MOMMY HAVE A MALICIOUS COLD. You’re welcome!”
(Okay, so it didn’t go like that.)
So yeah, here I sit, looking at last week’s list, feeling like I had total and complete mission failure, but that’s okay, I won’t be sick much longer, right? I’ll take a butt-load of Vitamin C, Zinc, Echinachea and all sorts of good stuff to help me feel right as rain again, right? Right? *ACHOO*
Today’s motivation – support. Are you giving support in all areas you can be? I spoke with a friend and fellow soccer-mom last night who told me her son does better with teachers who express themselves well rather than with those who are curt, one-word responders, and short with their kids. She gave me the example of saying “Good job” or “GOOD JOB!” with a shoulder pat. It occurred to me.. are we showing that same enthusiastic support in everyone that needs it, or are we half-listening, too busy, “uh huh”-ing or “yes, dear”-ing them without actually being present to give them the support they need? Let’s go the extra mile this week to ensure those that need us get all the support they can handle, and then some. Are ya with me?
Would you like to join us this week for To-Do Tuesday? Start with just a few things. Don’t over-do it your first couple of times. You’ll grow to become a list-a-holic later, start small now, though, k?
Just so you know, you can join us at anytime, it doesn’t have to be on Tuesdays – the list will go up every Tuesday for you to link to, but you can make your list and link to us at any point in the week!
Remember, with “To-Do Tuesday“, we’re attacking our to-do lists each week, blogging about our lists and what we’ve got going on, and sharing it with each other to help keep each other accountable. Everyone should come back here to link up in the Mister Linky as the central “To-Do Tuesday Hub” so we can visit who’s participating and offer encouragement to each other throughout the week. Don’t forget to add the “To-Do Tuesday” button to your post, linking back to this post!
Let’s continue to cross items off our list as we go and help support each other in completing our lists! Don’t forget my useful HTML tutorial on how to effectively “
cross-out” or √ “check off” your items on your to-do list!
