I Have Promises to Keep

Today I am keeping a promise I made yesterday and failed to keep.

During my workout on Wednesday morning, Pahla talked about keeping promises that you make to yourself. It’s on Day 27 of the Walk Off Weight series. You can check it out here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qce_s-eEBHE

That made me think of the things I keep putting off. These things nag at me when I should be thinking about other things. I see their unfinished state and start getting down on myself. Or the growing pile of banana peels in the freezer that needed to be dealt with!

I wrote my list before 7 am. on Wednesday. By 9 am the dehydrator was on the kitchen counter, the bananas were laid out on the trays and they were ready to dry. Before I went to bed, the underarms of the sweater were grafted together and I discovered a few threads that needed to be sewn in. I still went to bed.

This idea really worked well, so I did it again on Thursday. The first promise was to deal with the banana peels and get the dehydrator off the counter. They were ground up in less than 10 minutes (thanks to our Vitamix). The thumb on the mittens were completed and those 3 threads woven into the sweater.

Reading and writing with the grands: This, sadly, is also something that tends to get left when life gets crazy. Putting it on the board as a promise, reminds me that it is important. Tonight I read Tomie DePaolo’s Cloud book to the boys!

Between this, that and the other thing, it is almost 9 pm and time for me to turn off the computer and tidy my desk.

Three promises a day! That’s all. I can do this and get things done!

Good night!

About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking! EDIT: 2021. I am not closer to my weight goal, but moving forward. The budget is still small. We are renting our homestead and progressing towards our family dream!
