The Done List

You make a list of all the things you would like to do today. You work and work and accomplish a ton, but at the end of the day you've only done three of the nine things on your list. You feel like you've failed, and now tomorrows To-Do list has 15 things on it. 

Sound familiar?

Then you, my friend, need a Done List. In response to my frequent feelings of failure (because I was awesome instead of super-awesome,) I decided I needed to instead focus on what I HAVE done, rather than what I did not do. And so was born the Done List.

I used Avery Printable Magnets and Martha Stewart Chalkboard Paint to create this little morale booster. 
Tip: once you are done with a coat of paint, let the magnet dry on the fridge so that the corners don't curl up.
After it dried, I trimmed the edges, added a little white acrylic paint for the frame, title, and permanent item: I was a good mommy. 

If I accomplish nothing else in a day, I can always say I was a good mommy today!

I have a lot to do today before my friend Nicole gets here, and I look forward to seeing how much I can cram on this board!
