Thoughts on the Day:

6:42 am: 108 days until a wedding. The house is still a wreck but at least the floors are going in now. Hope to come home to much more progress this evening. Fifteen chores were accomplished this morning. Hope to accomplish four more today at work or during lunch time.

4:14 am: 107 days until a wedding. The way Andy Frisella pitches it, today would be a win. I accomplished a lot more than I thought I would. But I’ve played sports. I’ve played almost perfect games…. and still lost. So, I kind of hold myself to a higher standard. I didn’t win in every facet. So I’m calling today a loss. A tough loss, but a loss. Tomorrow—well, I guess, technically, today is another day. I begin again. With the intent of doing everything right of accomplishing everything on my list. With the intent of WINNING THE DAY.
