Flyby this morning! Essentials done, even though I "considered" leaving them because I'm "in a hurry". In a hurry because I didn't rise early enough..."didn't plan". Once I started, it got done quickly and I'll be happier when I get home.

gardenerjoy, I will put that book on my list. I do notice that many of the "things" I have resolved in my life, specifically the condition of my home, do make me feel happier. I notice this daily.

onebyone, thanks for your insight on my comments. I do notice just what you said. I have made those essentials into a personal challenge. I do them as fast as I can and remember it's exercise. I am always thinking when I'm doing could I be more them faster....make less trips....etc.
The kitchen, for example, I try to use less pans....I've developed a routine where when I'm cooking I'm also cleaning up after myself instead of watching the food and tasting...tasting....tasting. I have a short list of items that never vitamix, food processor, kitchen knives, etc. If a pan is going to sit I fill it with water/soap and wash it the next time I come upon it. Lots of little things make life smoother. I decluttered the kitchen, got rid of lots of extras, and the extra storage space I found automatically decluttered the counters....trash goes out the first time it's full and I am going to the car....recycle goes out on pick up day EVEN if I don't think I have time....etc
Maybe you could think of ways to make the daily stuff easier and more fun.

Ok, gotta run!
