Monday... on Sunday!

Today really felt like Monday. Our air conditioning died yesterday so hubby spent a couple hours this morning at the mechanics' trying to figure out what is wrong. They needed to dig deeper into the electrical system and hubby had to be at a client's office at 11:30, so we're taking the car in on Tuesday. Hubby spent the rest of the day at a client's office and is just now on his way home.

As for me, I spent a good portion of the day being productive. I closed my laptop and forced myself to work. Nice change! The laptop being closed actually keeps me productive because I know it's off limits until my break. If the laptop is open and I'm connected to the internet, I will sit down for "just one thing."

Instead, I ran a couple loads of laundry, cleaned the kitchen, cleaned out the cat boxes, and made this season's first pumpkin pie! I'm really excited to taste the pie tonight as the recipe called for freshly grated nutmeg. I actually found a whole nutmeg at the health food store and grated it myself. I've never done that before! The fresh spices smelled really good.

With our vacation a few weeks ago, I threw myself off on the habits I was working on. I'm going to start over. As I'm familiar with these habits and just need to get back into the routine, I'm going to work on all three this week. Hopefully that goes well!

Habit #1 - All dishes washed, every day. (Day 1 - check! I'm so happy that the kitchen is clean, even after making a huge mess with the pumpkin pie. I spilled cornstarch all over the counter!)
Habit #2 - Both cat boxes cleaned every day. (I'm switching this habit from the morning to anytime in the day. I found myself more likely to get it done every day if I didn't have to force myself to do it first thing in the morning.)
Habit #3 - Daily flossing. (Dentist appointment next month!)

Ugh! Your a/c went out? I thought that you and your hubby just had major repairs fixed on your car already? Well, I hope things get straightened out for you soon in regards to your automobile.

Sounds like you had a very productive Sunday. :)
