Day by day

I was informed yesterday that it is National Blog Awareness month (or something of that nature), and everywhere bloggers are going to try to post a blog entry a day through the month of November. And while I support this idea and encourage some of you who haven't updated your blogs since May (you know who you are!) to participate, I think I am going to opt out of this one. I plan on blogging my usual 2-3 times per week, don't get me wrong.

Since I am doing okay in the blog writing department, I thought it might be nice to work on something else during the month of November, something that is more important to me. So I have zoned in on two choices. I am either going to a) keep my house clean enough so that if anyone drops by unawares I can excitedly throw the door open and invite them in. Normally my visitors are greeted with my door creaking open a crack and me asking for a password, then me asking if they can wait five minutes while I clear a path. Okay, maybe it isn't like that all the time. I was inspired by my mother-in-laws visit here last week. She was always looking for what needed to be done and just doing it, not waiting or complaining. So, I have a goal to be more like that and a clean house is bound to be the result.

My second goal was going to be to exercise every day in November, but then I remembered in the recesses of my brain something about needing rest days and not trying to do so much at the beginning that you get discouraged and quit. So I think I may modify this to say that I will at least do some sort of physical activity a day; be it a walk or mopping the floor with vigour. I will also try to do a true blue workout three times a week.

So I am off to a good start, today is November first and so far I am doing good on both of my goals (I know it is only 10:37 in the morning), and actually I am blogging, so maybe I can even participate in Blog Awareness Month. We shall see.

So, feel free to drop by any time in the month of November to check on my progress! If I ask you for a password you will know I have failed ;).

I'm impressed! It's way more awesome to exercise and clean than to blog.

What was the password again?

I'm with Ralphie. I don't remember the password. Does that mean I don't get to see it messy? I don't care about messiness as long as:

1 - I don't have to step barefoot on crumbs

2 - It doesn't effect our DDR playing.

Wait, so many people asking for the password, does this mean you anticipate failure? Come on, show a little optimism!

I love to hear someone's house is as cluttered as mine good luck with the goal I hope you can reach it!

Nice work setting goals. I don't know how it's done with 2 kids but I imagine it's kind of hard. Just clean out a closet and throw your mess in it. You can always clean it out later, right?
