Today Was a Good Day


I don’t have a Friday finish, but it was a day of accomplishments. I don’t have to go into the office on Fridays for my main employment as we’ve gone to a four day work week.

I still had a lot of work to do here at home. With everything that happened around my father’s passing, I had gotten really behind in housework, laundry, the office work for our oilfield business, writing checks to pay our bills and bills from my daddy’s medical care, thank you notes to those that sent plants, flowers, donations, etc. The list of not so fun “to do’s” is long and exhausting. So, I used my timer. I would set it for 45 minutes and attack some chores til it went off. Then I would set it for a 15 minute quilting break as a little reward motivation. I did this from the time I was up and dressed until 2:30 when I went to pick up my grandson from kindergarten so we could have a little afternoon play date.

I got one whole chevron completed for baby Z’s quilt. This one is going to go together quick! And, it’s fun. I’m loving it! Six more colors to go!

  1. Please accept my sincere condolences upon your Dad’s passing. So much paperwork and it seems to never stop! It’s been eight years since my MIL’s death and I’m still deep in paperwork; likewise, five years since Dave’s death and the same. Frankly, it becomes discouraging. If you haven’t thought about it, please consider checking with the unclaimed property in your state. I found so much unclaimed property…money…from my MIL and Dave…unbelievable! How can anyone not miss their money?! Even though Dave was Executor of his Mother’s estate, obviously he didn’t finish so it’s left to me. Your trick of using a timer is brilliant!

    1. Thank you! Yes, it’s overwhelming. I remember our late husband’s passed around the same time. It’s been a little over 5 yrs. I still run into “loose ends” here and there. I do check the website for that once in awhile. I’ve never found any for any of us, but you never know!
