30 Days of Thanks (Day 22)

Day Twenty-Two: Productive Weekend

Last Sunday I posted how I was thankful for my lazy Sundays. This one was quite the exception. In fact, the whole weekend was far from lazy. The BF stayed home to get things done and I stayed in Fargo to get things done, knowing that I would be heading back that way Tuesday anyway. so, I got a lot done. Such as:

  • Saturday morning bike ride - 21 miles
  • 3 hours working on SSI assignment for my ASD class with a friend - while enjoying coffee
  • cleaned out my walk-in closet in my bedroom and have tons of clothes to donate
  • Sunday morning workout - 3.2 miles run and 25 minutes of strengthening, stretching and core work.
  • Finished the SSI assignment/reflection- only took a couple more hours but I have an extremely better understanding of SSI, Social Security Disability, Housing Assistance, Medicare/Medicaid, etc.
  • Cleaned my bathroom
  • Spent a lot of time reading Could It Be Autism by Nancy D. Wiseman, and just have about 100 pages left before I can write an 8-10 page book summary and review, stating how it relates to our class topics, AND make a powerpoint presentation for my final project
  • Watched the Vikings/Packers game - blech
  • 3 loads of laundry
  • Did some holiday baking

What did your weekend look like?!

There is definitely something to be said for crossing items off the list! We had a pretty productive wekend too! Finished up yard work, preppred the house for painting, hung Xmas lights, lots of cooking and food prep! Oh, and laundry... I swear I do laundry EVERY DAY!

Absolutely no better feeling than starting the week after a productive weekend (and maybe knowing that it's a short week!) :)

Wow your weekend WAS busy haha... mine was very lazy, to the point where I almost didn't feel that good at the end of it. I'm just thankful its a short week so I can have a do over next weekend.

Sounds like a productive weekend for you.

My weekend involved sick kids and laundry production that happened faster than I could wash it...
