even sickies need a to-do list

. at . 14 comments

3 weeks ago i fell while hiking. i broke my humerous bone just below the ball joint in my left shoulder. wearing this imobilizer  makes it possible for my shoulder to heal properly because my left arm is tightly snug against my body.

obviously i am not working at my day job. instead my main agenda for this week is to do things that help me heal quickly and well.  i am also working one hour a day (from home of course). to things other than that, i am saying “no,” as i want to put my energies towards the “best” things this week.

1. Exercise

  •  Walk 10-15 minutes 3 times a day
  • passive resistance exercises 3 times a day
  • soak in hot tub one time a day

2. work: 1 hour per day

  • tidy email inbox
  • contact small group leaders
  • order curriculum for children’s sunday school
  • sort out room mates for retreat
  • start rough draft for retreat booklet
3. miscellaneous
  • write 1 thank you note (dtb)
  • do all i can to sleep better at night
  • write in my gratitude book
  • read Ecclesiastes
  • read song of songs

Katrina at Mama Manuscripts is hosting Goal Planning Monday. I am participating so I’ll have a record of what I complete each week. I’ll also have a tool to energize my (sometimes) flagging motivation to complete (1) the jobs I tend to avoid or (2) jobs that get overshadowed by the urgent items on my to-do list.

      thanks for the concern, michelle. i doubt i’ll do any more adventure hiking. but walking? that’s just up my alley.

      btw – i forgot to mention in my comment at your site that i looked at the nature and art studies you linked to. they look like a lot of fun and a great way to get into the topics. thanks for sharing those resources.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope that you’re healing well!

    You asked where I will go for my Masters….and I’m going to say that I’m not going to… at least for a long while. I’ve been going to college for so long, I want to just be done.

    Perhaps in a while I will look into the Masters…but not yet 🙂

      blossom, well, you certainly deserve the break. but since you love learning so much, it will be interesting to see how long you do stay away. 🙂

  • I have always been a lover of to-do lists—they help me to stay on track throughout the day and manage my various responsibilities so that I don’t lose my mind. Goal Planning Monday sounds like it’s right up my alley—I’ll be participating on Mondays to come! As a post-script: I’m so sorry that you hurt yourself! I hope you heal quickly.

    Ouch! Hope your arm is doing better! I’m nursing a sprained ankle, so, I’m almost in the same boat!
