On To A New #2!

The Old #2: Switch from disposable diapers to cloth diapers.

Our cloth diapers finally came today!!! I'm so excited to get them all washed and ready to use. But I can cross this off our list, since we have them in hand now. Now for my next #2...

The New #2: Pluck my eyebrows.
I know they're in need of attention, and I've been meaning to do it. Maybe putting it down as one of my next 5 things will give me the motivation.

The New #3: Make More Cloth Wipes

Old #3: Fix all torn books.

New #3: Make more cloth wipes. 

I have some cloth wipes already, but I think I need a better supply. I've been putting off doing this since I don't have a sewing machine, but it's something that needs to be done. Hopefully I'll cross this one off soon, and get on to something better.

The New #3: Fix All Torn Books

I am crossing off my old #3, because I have decided to just go cold turkey and start hitting the sack at 9:30.

Old #3: Adopt a bedtime of 9:30 pm.

New #3: Fix all torn books. My daughters have unintentionally ripped and torn several books in their childish excitement and so we have several that need fixing. This is my new addition to my next 5.

Making Progress

The Next 5 Things that I am working on right now will be taking me quite some time to complete. So, I'm just writing an update.

#1. Growing my hair down to the middle of my back is proceeding as quickly as hair grows. Maybe I'll post a picture every couple of months for a progress report.

#2. Switching from disposable to cloth diapers is almost complete. We've ordered cloth diapers and they are on their way. Once they get here, I'll be taking pictures, crossing this off my list and adding something new.

#3. Adopting a bedtime of 9:30 is very difficult for me, but I think I am slowly adjusting to earlier and earlier bedtimes. We'll see how long this one takes.

#4. I exercised three days last week, but only two days this week (if I exercise tomorrow night).

#5. Reading through the Bible is always interesting to me. Right now I am about halfway through Exodus. I'm not really taking a certain number of chapters a day, just reading as much as I feel I can at that time.
