Just a quick post so I can feel good about all of the stuff I did today.
For starters, I only hit the snooze button twice. Then I got up, made breakfast while listening to a podcast (I have a crazy backlog of podcasts on my iPod), and got dressed. After that came the first big accomplishment of the day: going to the grocery store. And I bought fresh fruits and veggies instead of frozen, processed stuff. (I want to eat better, but I’m mostly too lazy to cook.)
When I got home I was feeling so inspired that I decided to finally take a first pass at cleaning my kitchen. This involved clearing everything off the counter and then taking some Lysol to it. In the process I was able to fill a cardboard banker’s box with stuff to take to Goodwill. My kitchen looks a million times better, but it’s by no means done.
Since I had a nice, clean countertop, I chopped some of my veggies so that they would be waiting for me whenever I want to use them. (Thank you, Rachael Ray, for that tip. One reason I don’t cook is that the thought of chopping half a cup of green bell pepper exhausts me at 7 PM.)
I even found time to read one of my textbooks and watch the movie Beginners. (Good movie, but it was kind of weird to see Captain Von Trapp as a gay American.) And as soon as I post this I’m going to dye my hair (but not a fun color, sadly).
Yep, good stuff happens when I get out of bed before 7:30.
