Motivated {Celebrating}

I am joining in celebrating big and little accomplishments throughout the week at Ruth Ayres Writes.


I am using a new notebook to help organize my to do lists. I LOVE placing a line through accomplished tasks. Eleanor Roosevelt is one of my heros, so the cover was quite fitting!


Yesterday I wrote that I conquered my writing monster this week. I have a two page outline for a presentation March 1 on finding craft in the books you love. I just needed to get over the blank page. I am really excited now! When one snow day turns into three, I choose to be proactive and positive!


First Win:
Basketball has been a stretching experience for our freshman, Tim. The team has lost every game. Varsity has only won one. Tough season. Tim had originally planned to help out his friend to have a freshman team. Only 13 boys decided to commit to the team- total for varsity and JV. I have driven many miles to get him to practice, even on snow days. Their dedication paid off! They won last night! An exciting game for a proud mom!

    I love that new notebook cover! Kudos for your freshman on the win! It is good to celebrate when the opportunity arises!

  4. I love the idea of keeping a notebook with lists. I think I might just have to steal that idea. It is a pretty notebook too!
