  • Respond to emails within two days
  • Get a planner and plan in advance when I will clean, when I will shop, and other various things
  • EVERY Monday is a fresh start, a new blank slate, a new chance to be better and work towards the person I want to be

  • Call my parents once a week at least
  • Skype with G&P once a month at least
  • Call my grandpa and grandma once a month
  • Have a date night with husband once a week – nothing elaborate or special, but could include (with Elsa) going for a long walk, checking out new parks, going to the mall, going to dinner, or (without Elsa) renting a movie, playing a game – just so we have something different from just sitting on the couch doing nothing
  • Respond to my friends’ emails right away instead of waiting and forgetting
  • Get together with my friends every week or two weeks at most
