Daily List

I’ve become one of the many addicted to  The other day I saw a great way to organize your day.  The original idea can be found at lifes-a-journal .   I liked hers, but had a few changes I wanted to make to fit my lifestyle and needs.  I decided to make my own and see if I liked using it.  So far so good.

After the kidney stone experience last year, I decided to keep the Hydrate section.  I just cross them off as I go.

I have had a challenge writing in my journal.  I’ve never been a regular at it, so I added a section for that.  My hope is that with a small area to write, I will not feel like I have to make up for all the days I haven’t written.  I just review that day and write a few things.  Sometimes it looks more like a list and other days it has my thoughts and feelings.  Either way is good. 

My daily list includes: Scripture Study, 10 minute pick-up in each room, Exercise and Tracking my food intake. 

My list of things to-do varies day by day, so it is blank and I fill it in.  I just check them off as they are completed.

Notes are for me to write things like appointments, kids day off of school, holidays or funny things the kids say. 

I don’t remember where the quote at the bottom originally came from.  I just like it and it helps me keep perspective on hard days.

I created my daily list in Excel and saved it as a PDF.  I uploaded it to Google docs, so you can print it off too :)  I decided to print off enough pages for a year and have them spiral bound at the copy store.  I think you could print on both sides if you used heavy enough paper.  I plan to bind mine along the top edge rather than the side.  I think it will be fun to look back on and see a glimpse of my days as time goes on.  Click HERE for the Google docs link.

UPDATE*** A friend requested a spot to list menu items.  So I’ve added a section to the master list.  It looks like this and you can print it HERE.  You can still choose the other format by clicking on the link above.
