November 7–>Three Things I Accomplished Today

Welcome to my blog and today’s post. I am back on track with following this month’s schedule and content by creating thematic blog posts, based on ideas from the Ultra Blog Challenge and the Article Writing Challenge. Fridays are designated for listing three things completed for the day, SO… I did actually manage to complete three specific things on this first Friday in November!

 

~1~

The FIRST thing I managed to accomplish first thing this morning was an article…as in, I wrote a 450-word article in about 40 minutes to meet a deadline and managed to do it with a few minutes to spare! This was for Writer Access, one of the content companies I still write for, that functions as a “middle man” to match up clients and writers.

I was busy yesterday with multiple other tasks, kept falling asleep while trying to write last night, and then had a chance to sleep in this morning. My hubby works four 10-hour days from Monday to Thursday, and sometimes has over-time hours on Fridays. But when he has Fridays off, since his body clock is still on early wake-up time, he gets up with the pets and I get 3 or 4 extra hours of sleep instead of having to get up at 4:30!

The SECOND thing  I accomplished today was going to an appointment with my eye doctor. My hubby went with me, because I had to have my pupils dilated, and NOT drive myself home! It has been a couple years since I last went to my eye doctor, due to not having health insurance–but now that we DO, it was nice to get back there for a thorough exam and to order new glasses (I’ll have to post a picture of me wearing my new glasses when I get them!)

The THIRD thing I accomplished, since I couldn’t see clearly to be writing or reading for awhile after my appointment, was a bit of de-cluttering. It seems to be a never-ending battle, because stuff just…accumulates and seems to take on a life of its own! I’m often surprised by what I find when I sift through a pile of mail, magazines, and other stuff. It’s also surprising how much of the stuff piled up can then go in the trash, because store flyers past the sale date, junk mail, and things of that nature take up so much space.  When it’s all gone, it makes the whole room look so much better. I’ve also found that less clutter makes for better concentration and motivation, because I’m not distracted by the clutter.

Doesn’t it feel good to accomplish things that you have to do? These accomplishments usually pave the way for having time to do things you WANT to do!

So what about you? Did you accomplish what you needed or wanted to do today?

  1. Hi, there. First, I love how you take the end of the week to evaluate your progress and success. How awesome. Is this a good writing company to write for? Always on the lookout for new writing opportunities.

    Second I love that you completed three different things — not just related to writing and yes, that can make a big difference. Today, for instance, I managed to put away the a laundry after it was folded. Not such a big deal right? But when you have to climb a few flights of stairs with a cranky toddler and a stroller who is with an ear infection, “buying” 10 minutes of time is a super-big deal. At least for me! And this is in addition to everything else I do.

    Anyhow, great post and happy for your Friday accomplishments – so go out now and celebrate!

  2. Way to go!

    I have heard of that middle-man writing opportunity, not specifically yours, but of it generally-speaking! At one time I was thinking of doing that but then I just got overwhelmed and skipped it.

    I need to see my ophthalmologist! Have been planning to go for ages. Same problem – no insurance. I think there is a special company that provides low vision screening but I have to follow it up.

    Clutter. Working on that myself!

    Feel like we are definitely on the same wave length!

    Congratulations!
