I spent most of yesterday on the computer, so today I decided to stay off the computer and actually accomplish something (I did accomplish a few things that needed to be done yesterday, but it still feels like I wasted a whole day.)
First of March - oh yay -- February is behind us. I think starting a new month is like starting a new year - another 30/31 days to make or break a habit, a fresh start so to speak. I cleaned my coffee pot! I used to clean the coffee pot on the first of every month, but got out of the habit, so starting a new habit there. This month I'm going to eat out of the freezer -- every time I open it something falls out, so I need to clean it out. March is a No-Spend month for me -- which mostly just means I plan to pay attention to where my money goes this month. It's a good time to do this since my Visa credit card was compromised and they're sending me a new one. It was obvious to the company that I don't usually spend $289.56 on groceries at Target in Palatine, IL! I have my card, so somehow they got my card number online I suppose.
I don't use my credit cards a lot, so it's fairly easy to see when they've been compromised.
I think staying off the computer til late in the afternoon, early evening is going to work for me -- I enjoyed knitting this afternoon and quilting this morning.
