HADA 2013: Days 22-25

I decided to scale back a bit on HADA this week, without going off completely. Rather than worrying about getting in my full hour, I decided to focus on accomplishing one thing every day, however small, that I normally wouldn't find time for, while still managing to feed my family regular meals and keep my girls occupied. At-Least-One-Thing-a-Day-April. You have to be realistic, and when you're juggling two small kids and several major life transitions, something's gotta give.

Day 22: Dinner in the crockpot in the morning (lasagna), doctor's appointments for both girls. HADA: Finally made a crust for the frozen pie filling that I made last fall and baked it.

Day 23: Dinner in the crockpot in the morning (lentil stew), spent most of the day at a friend's house (who used to live where we used to live, but has also moved, so she's only half an hour away, now, not an hour). HADA: Finally took apart the broken full length mirror that has been sitting on my front porch for 3 weeks, waiting for me to figure out how to safely disassemble and dispose of it.

Day 24: Dinner in the crockpot in the morning (chili), friend from home came to visit with her kids. My kids were a bit crazy, and I was a bit off, and I was very glad for the company of a "broken-in" friend, who could see me like that and still love me. HADA: Sorted through a box of mail, paid some bills, and finished filling out Valerie's kindergarten registration forms.

Day 25: Dinner in the crockpot in the morning (curried pork chops and rice), trip to the park for a few hours, kindergarten registration is tonight. HADA: Found Valerie's birth certificate (right filing cabinet, wrong file), put zip ties on the trash can to hold on the lid, cleaned and hung a photo/mirror/key rack frame thingy.

Should totally rename to Thing a Day April and then you could call it TADA! And anytime you talked about it you could be like...I did such and such...TADA! LOL

That would be awesome! Except Thing-a-Day is already taken. (Silly people picked February, though. They could have had the best acronym ever!) http://thingadayforever.wordpress.com/
