Aha! So, That's How They Do It!

I've never read the book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People before, but I'm guessing one of the habits is waking up early. I decided to get up at the same time as my hubby this morning (5:15). We have had a busy few days and I have plans for today as well, but I didn't want my housework to suffer. So I decided to just get up when he did and get some things done. I wasn't too thrilled when the alarm went off and it felt like I had only been asleep an hour. However now that I am awake, I am loving it! It is 6:20 and I have: had breakfast, did my morning devotions, prayed, sent off two emails that needed to be answered, washed a load of laundry, hung it to dry, folded and put away 2 loads from yesterday, and watered the plants. Woohoo!!

The rest of my plans (hopefully before the kiddos wake up) are to: make the bed, get dressed, vacuum downstairs, dust, put dishes away, prep dinner, move storage cabinet from laundry room to garage, sweep/mop kitchen and landings. Phew! I'm tired just thinking about it. I think I better go make myself some coffee to get me through the day. =)

Have a great day, y'all!!

I think when my hubby gets back, I'm going to start waking up early with him, too... for now, it's all I can do to get in bed before midnight, lol!

Ok so I have unfortunately had to read the & Habits of Highly effective people and no getting up early isn't a habit and if you read the book, if one can realy call this a book rather than a slow torcher device, i commend you for getting through it. But if you would like to read something more effective, read either The Servant- which is a GREAT book or read Whale Done! I have to read a book a month and currently 2 books a month right now for work says it will make me a better manager one day so we will see...
but so glad you got so much done! I miss you!
love
Lisa
