One Little Word Blog Hop - April Edition

Xnomads' BlogSo here we are - April 1st!  Happy April Fool's Day!  But there is no fooling happening here.  This really and truly is another edition of the One Little Word Blog Hop!  The entire hop goes live at 8:00 a.m. Pacific Time (that is 11:00 a.m. here).

If you came here from Cia's blog, welcome!  If you are one of my regular visitors (love you guys!) you can pick up here or go back to the beginning to catch the entire hop!

So for March, Ali asked us to commit to doing "one little thing".  Never one to let well enough alone, I set myself to two "little" things - making exercise and creativity a priority for the month.

I wanted to be able to say I had done a least a "little" bit of each every day of the month!  Now, if you count laundry and grocery shopping as exercise - c'mon it burns calories doesn't it??? - then I think I got the exercise part down.  But the creativity?  Well, I got myself involved in Project Simplify over at Simple Mom so some of my creative time was spent organizing and decluttering.  Overall though, I'm happy with what I accomplished during the month!

I need to finish off this page by actually documenting my thoughts on how the month went. Otherwise, I'm calling March done!  And SOOOOO looking forward to April!!!

March definitely had its happy moments though and I'm loving this method of keeping track of them!  I know it's not a great day when the highlight of my day is my nap.  But I also see so many truly happy moments recorded.

And this was a huge technology month for me - I finally got the new version of ACDSee running (after owning it for 9 months), got iTunes installed, my iPod synched, and ordered some new tunes, and installed and learned how to use Skype!  Why I waited until Sarah is almost ready to come home to figure out the Skype thing, I have no idea.  But hey.... it works! And skyping with her is so cool!

Your next stop on the hop is Deb's blog.  Enjoy!

The Best of My Days album is such a great idea. Looks like you had a pretty good month :)

Lisa Echerd said...

Love your good things list! This is a great idea. Glad you had a good month. Housework has been my best exercise the last few cold months so I definitely think it counts. Thx for visiting my blog!

Donna said...

backtoallen said...

love those pages--and yes, I say laundry and groceries count :)

Yea for success this month! Sounds like iScrap was a fun class! Anything with Stacy usually is, but I was too committed to too many other things then!!

cia said...

Housework totally counts as excercise! Way to go on getting so much done this month. I really like your best of days page - such a good idea! And congrats on figuring out all the tech stuff!

You had a busy month! I really like the idea of recording the best of each day. I need to focus on the good things more. Thanks for sharing!

I really liked the listing of the best of your day. Sometimes we forget all the good things that happen during our time. Good work.

JMC said...

Loved your daily list! Funny, because I just decided to do that on my blog! Thanks for leaving the sweet comment on my blog. I do believe that things happen for a reason and at the "right" time. Thanks for the reminder :-). Joy

Abbey said...
