What can 15 minutes do?

Merry Christmas to my blogging peeps! It is sooo good to be out of school! I have to compile my list and get busy reorganizing home, classroom, thoughts & ideas for January, and do better blogging. A friend said doing something only 15 minutes daily can totally change your life. I hope that 15 minutes each afternoon putting away various miscellaneous items at school, 15 minutes each afternoon at home doing little odd jobs, and 15 minutes walking the dogs each evening along with 15 minutes prepping for the next day's lunch/dinner will make life more manageable and I'll be calmer. That's only an hour, but broken into manageable chunks...I hope. Ha! We'll see, won't we? Keep me in your prayers... :D


  1. That sounds like a good plan:) I started walking today (45 mins)...way to many Christmas goodies this past week so am hoping/praying that by the time I got back to work I am hooked on it and will keep it up:)

  2. Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas! I was out on the boat with my hubby last night watching a Christmas light parade, talking his ear off like usual, and I asked, "Should I contact my Bloggy Secret Santa? Should I tell her Merry Christmas or was I suppose to keep it a secret until Christmas?" I love the idea and was excited to play, but was a little confused!! He said, "You wrote your REAL name and address all over it, you might as well!"
    So Merry Christmas, I love you blog! I lift you and your family up to the Lord each night, GREAT LUCK with your 15/15/15/15 minute ideas! I think it is wonderful!
    Love & Best Wishes!
