what to do?!

I wrote this list a few days ago. It's a To Do list designed to fill my days with positive thoughts and affirmative action. Do you ever write those? I'm a big fan of the To Do list. They're great as a brain storm, a procrastination activity, a reminder, a pick me up, and you can even add to them after the fact, to make the most of that glorious crossing off the list part.

Any of these on your list? (You don't have to be unemployed to want/need to do these things either!)

Things I can do now that I am redundant am unemployed...
Crochet up a storm
Finish my crocheted chair project
Sew up my new cushions
Make yummy meals
Read books
Relax at the beach
Declutter the house
Go to the gym
Make Christmas presents
Spring cleaning
Blog more!

Things I should stop doing...

this headband is gorgeous! its good to have lists i think, it can give us some focus and sense of achievement when we can cross things off. its important to be patient with ourselves though i think as i try to get everything done at once and then end up getting nothing done!! : ) one thing at a time is good. good luck with your lists. I know you posted this some time ago but i hope all is going well xx
