Let's Talk About Progress

Progress is always a great thing.  Making lists is one of my favorite ways to track my progress.  Remember the list of resolutions/goals that I made for the year?  Well, I want to take a closer look at the progress I am making with them.  The purple highlited ones are the ones that I have either completed already or have a really great start on.  The others are looking kind of sad with their perple highlights.  I suppose I need to start remedying that!

Its's Friday!  Oh my goodness am I ever happy about that!  However, realizing that it is Friday makes me realize that I did not accomplish a few things that I set out to do this week.  I did not get all of my tax documents together.  I did not have my taxes done.  I did not complete my interest survey for vocational rehabilitation.  I did not mail my old text books back.  I did not complete my change of degree program request.  I did not clean the house very much.  
Looking on the brighter side of things now, (since progress is all about positive changes) here are the things that I did accomplish this week.  I did only cry a few times about Mr. Fantastic being away.  I did get more wood for the bathroom walls.  I did purchase a majority of the supplies I need to get started on project house in high gear.  I did have a pulmonary function test.  I did go to genetic counceling and discovered that although my chance of getting breast cancer is higher than for most, I 's still at a lower risk than I thought.  I did get an MRI on my back after injuring it nearly 4 years ago - thanks army/VA! I did loose 3 more pounds.  I did exercise.  I did draw plans for our entryway.  I did decide on a paint color for our entry.  I did sleep alone.  I did pick up my promise ring all re-sized, put back together and cleaned.  I did survive on my own.  I did call my grams on Sunday.  I did get my grades turned in to my employer.  I did submit for my new term.  I did keep a positive attitude!
Well, it looks like my I did list is way longer than my I did not list.  Progress!  Positive change!  Accomplishment!  What did you do this week?  What are you going to do this weekend?  Enjoy!!
