There was some discussion in the chit chat thread about an accomplishment thread, kind of a pat yourself on the back for all you've accomplished today. So, tell us, what did you get accomplish today?

Okay, well I guess I'll start:
1. Called and rescheduled jordyn's eye dr. Appointment.
2. Reserved car rental for trip to the beach
3. Knocked out 6 invoices for DH, and didn't yell at him when he called to again remind me of past invoice mistakes
4. Got the little girls in bed before 9:00

Before 6:00 am: made two lunches, made breakfast for one offspring, took same offspring to swim practice, started one load of laundry and folded another.

Between 6:00 & 8:00: breakfast for offspring 2, second load of laundry, unloaded dishwasher, and drove second offspring to school for early orchestra rehearsal. Oh, and put the breakfast dishes various family members didn't feel like putting in the dishwasher.

Remainder of morning: cleared all the stuff the rest of the family didn't seem to think needed to be put away. Hmmmmmm I couldn't even set my brush down on the counter. Think there was too much stuff there? Third load of laundry, fold other two.

Afternoon: inventoried household essentials in prep for Target run. Folded last load of laundry. Target run. Pick up one offspring from school. Return home to drop him off. 15 minutes later leave to pick up offspring #2 from school due to rain. Stop at friend's house to drop of jacket left in our car during yesterday's car pool. Practice piano alone and duet with dd. Drive to piano lesson only to find out there wasn't one due to Jewish holiday. My bad, teacher reminded me last week. Went out to dinner with dh and offspring.

More productive than I thought. I can't remember whose idea this was but THANKS, made me feel much better about my day.

So often I dwell on all I didn't do.

I think we also don't realize just how much we do everyday because we tend to focus on the big stuff, either that we did or didn't do, and forget about all the small stuff that adds up.

Wow Mindy, you are going to have a busy fall. I am almost kind of glad that Jordyn had already had it narrowed down between a few colleges before, and don't have to really worry about doing a bunch of that stuff.

Have you visited the schools that Jordyn is interested in? We have a big list of potential schools. We saw one in the summer, we have a bunch now and then two or three more that we'll hope to see in the spring

No, not exactly. she's 95% set on going to the college my brother is currently going to, he finished his bachelors and will finish his MBA at the end of this upcoming winter semester. So I have been there from that perspective, going to visit him and stuff, but we haven't done any tours. She will do one this summer when she goes up to michigan. She's been in contact with the cheerleading coach there already also, so I'm sure she will see about setting up a meeting with her also.
