Eat That Frog First...

Yesterday, was my day off.  I always have Thursday off, and try to be productive on that day.  I often have to go to Hastings for allergy shots (I get 3 shots every 2 weeks), but I didn't have to go yesterday which was really nice because the weather was putting a layer of snow on everything again.  So I had planned to work on our taxes, reconciling our checkbooks, and laminating and putting eyelets into some new style bead display cards.  How much did I get done? NONE, ZERO, ZIP.  Wasn't feeling great, so spent time on the internet and curled up on the couch instead.  While I was surfing blogs, I came across this one by SimpleMom and it really struck me as a terrific idea.  Basically stated, Eating That Frog means do the thing you hate the most, and the rest of the day will be a breeze.  What a terrific idea, and now I am inspired to try to put this into practice in my life.  The principle is based on a quote “Eat a live frog every morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” -Mark Twain 
So what will your frog be?  Have a terrific weekend!  My blog (though the counter only counts part of the visits) has had more than 2400 visitors since I put the new counter on, thanks for reading and stopping by for a visit to my world for a bit!

Stephanie - I love that idea! My frog on my days off is laundry! I will swallow my frog first thing tomorrow morning!
I think you probably deserved to sit curled up on the couch yesterday and read blogs! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Thanks Gals! I don't know what my frog would be, I hate most household tasks, but I do like to do the laundry, not really sure why! I have to work tomorrow morn, then I will find some frogs to swallow, since I didn't yesterday! Ribbitt!
