Asking the right questions

It’s time to check in again.  I really like this list from Pip at Meet Me at Mikes because it’s a little different than the usual check in posts.  I try to write the first thing that comes to my head and it always produces some interesting results.

Making :  a list.  I have been doing my Ta-Da list for a couple of weeks now. It’s been really helpful in making me feel like I have achieved things throughout the day.
Cooking : dinner.  I have made a goal to have list take away.  It’s better for our health and bank account.
Drinking :  lots of water.  I really notice the difference when I don’t drink enough water.
Reading:  a crime series by Kathryn Howell.  I discovered the other day that the book I am reading will be her last and I am a little bummed.
Wanting:  more motivation.
Looking:  a little tired, despite getting decent sleep lately.
Playing:  Avengers.  I have discovered a mobile Avengers game and I am a little hooked.
Wasting:  time.  I have been procrastinating about so much lately. I’m not sure what I am more anxious about, the time ticking away or actually doing the stuff I am procrastinating about.
Sewing:  I still haven’t managed to get over my Year 8 Home Economics experience.
Wishing:  that the answers I have to some life questions were easy to find.
Enjoying:  the cooler weather.  It’s been cool enough to wear a jumper, but not ridiculously cold.
Waiting:  for the alarm to go off so I can wake Mr 5 for school.
Liking:  Netflix. I jumped on the bandwagon a couple of weeks ago and it’s great. I wish there was more of the newer stuff but I’ve been loving watching House.
Wondering:  if I will ever like myself and believe it.
Loving:  the rare moments of spending time with just Mr 5 and Paul. We seem to have a lot going on lately and haven’t had a chance to just hang out doing nothing.
Hoping:  that the beautiful weather this morning keeps up.
Marvelling:  at the things that Mr 5 is learning at Prep. He is loving it.
Needing:  answers that no one but myself can provide.
Smelling:  The residual smell from dinner last night.  I may have burnt it a little.
Wearing:  pyjamas.
Following:  I was following the progress of the great cake making from Hugzilla. There’s talk of match fixing, but I say a win is a win.
Noticing:  that I don’t seem to worry too much about the same things as the Mum’s at school do.  It doesn’t bother me if Mr 5 doesn’t eat all of his lunch, or only eats one thing.  I know that he goes through stages of eating nothing and eating me out of house and home.
Knowing:  that with a little perseverance and a lot of work that I can do this and find the answers.
Thinking:  that I should have bolded the words as I went along.
Feeling:  positive… at least for today.
Bookmarking:  Failblog.  It always makes me laugh and wonder how the hell these people manage to live.
Opening:  a new loaf of bread.  I got a loaf of bread yesterday and half of it looked like someone had punched a hole in it.
Giggling:  at Jump 22 Street.  Paul and I watched it a couple of weeks ago and I’m still laughing at some of the scenes.
Feeling:  like I’ve been here before.

How are you feeling?

Do you feel out of place at school pick up?

    I love this list! I really love this list. It’s a great list.
    How am I feeling?
    I am feeling good (mostly).
    Confused (sometimes)
    Stressed (a lot)
    Happy (when I choose to be)
    A bit unwell (infected sinus)
    Hopeful (lots happening that could be awesome for us)
    Aren’t you glad you asked?

    I laughed at your comment about sewing as I’m the same. We had to make a wrap-around skirt in year 8 and I had to get my mother to finish it for me as I just couldn’t be bothered.

    How am I feeling? Sick. Tired. The cold has caught up with me again. Serves myself right for not slowing down when I need to! Hence today I’m having a slack day. Although trying hard not to feel guilty about it is tough.

    School pick up? – YES!

    Great list, I love reading posts like these.
    Good to hear that Mr 5 is doing well in Prep. Its such a big step for them.
    How am I feeling ? Happy and content right now, I hope it lasts.
    I am especially enjoying this cooler weather xx

    I am really going to have to get into lists – I’m more of a random mind-mapper. I had to laugh Tegan as you say you’ve been eating ‘list’ takeaway. I think you have lists on your mind! Glad the ta-da list is coming along.

    I’m feeling a little worn out to be honest and I have tons of ideas and motivation but not enough hours to get it all done. But enjoying watching Love Child and reading some blogs from other talented ladies. Mel xx

    Bahhahahhahahha! So many people waiting on that stupid cake. I failed to fail, much to the disappointment of many. There’s always the meat cake though – plenty more opportunity to fail there.

    I feel terrible if I forget to drink water. Most of the time I’m pretty good though but if I get distracted by softdrink I might forget for half a day and that’s when I feel like crap.

    I’ve been using a Ta-Da list too and I call it my Daily Quests. To make sure I do what I need to do everyday, I give myself a reward after completing the list daily for a whole week. Most of the time, the reward is a pizza party with my kids at home.

    I’m feeling tired too, Tegan. Must be because we’re at the halfway point of the year. That’s so awesome Mr 5 is loving prep and learning so much. That will be us next year. Your wondering tugged on my heartstrings. Hugs to you #teamIBOT
