I Didn't but I Did

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

Today I had a big list ~ of things I didn't do. Things I could have done. Perhaps a few I should have done.

But as I look around the {mildly unkempt} house, I'm realizing it's all ok.

I didn't plan any lessons for this week.

Didn't wash the floors.

Didn't turn on the computer until 10pm.

Didn't do any laundry ~ or put away any of the mounds that seem to be multiplying like rabbits every time I shut the door.

Frankly, I didn't do much of anything. I just did NOTHING of importance as far as list-ticking goes.

I did spend time worshiping with my kids. And watching them discover new ways of praising God.

I did jump around on crazy blown-up playthings and laugh at the kid's craziness.

I did fall asleep on the couch.

I did spend time with my husband.

I did read a good book.

I did nothing in general.

And that is just fine by me today.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day--a day spent with people instead of tasks, a day full of memories rather than "accomplishments". Days we too often fail to have in the rush to "get stuff done".

  2. What a wonderful do nothing day! Gotta love those!!

  3. many days i reflect similiarly at the end of the day, and i want to be so proud on the days when i 'did' so much important know laundry, cleaning, organizing---but i realize so often that the days when the most was actually accomplished, were the days when i stopped and listened to the 3 year old's story of a bug, walked to the school to get my kids, spend ridiculous hours outside sitting in a swing while the kids dug sand castles---

    i think you did a lot. a lot that will make your home and life much more peaceful:0) believe me the mulitplying laundry will wait for you. the kids will not.

  4. The BEST choices made! Those days "feel" so good at the end most times - a reminder of choosing what is best and keeping the distractions in control.

  5. Sounds like a "First things first" kind of day. Good for you! And the world just kept on spinning!
