One Sentence a Day – April

One of The Blended Blog ladies suggested writing a sentence a day which is a snapshot of the day. Some of us agreed to do it together for the month of April, and today we are posting the month’s worth of sentences. It was so much fun keeping track of our days that we decided to do it again next month and  then link up on June 2nd. If you want to join us, keep track of your days with just one sentence and link up with us next month!sentence-a-day

30. LAST DAY OF WHOLE30 {Annie and I did it!!! woohooo!!!!} and I have another coffee date with friends but I just drink water; I finally get to watch Annie’s game and then I get to unexpectedly drive to Orlando and back to retrieve a child.

I love marking the days because time is fleeting and I do try to make the most of the time I’m given. I don’t spend a lot of time on TV and I’ve cut back on social media (especially Facebook). I have increased my multi-tasking by listening to podcasts and audio books while I do menial tasks such as laundry, cooking and dishes.

Want to join us in this exercise? Check out what the others have to say below and then keep track of your days by writing a one-sentence summary. (I used the ‘Notes’ section on my phone.)

About Sheila @ Making the Most of Every Day

I'm a wife, mom, and a homeschool teacher. I'm always behind on housework and paper pile sorting. I'm fond of this crazy life but not of melted cheese. I want to follow hard after God, making each day really count. I like to run, read, cook (and eat!). Thanks for joining along on my journey!

  1. I love this! Is this the “bullet journal” concept I’ve been hearing about? Where/how do you record your sentence each day? Do you write it longhand, or do you type it on your phone or computer? I’d like to try this!

    1. I haven’t really looked into the bullet journal that MMD talks about so idk if this is the same thing. Personally, I keep it in the notes section of my phone so it’s always with me. As it is, I forgot to do it daily and had to catch up. But my calendar reminds me what I did each day so it was easy to do. Do it and join us next month!

  2. Congratulations on completing Whole 30! I don’t know if I could give up coffee! I’m really working on my eating habits lately so I’ve cut the sweet out of my coffee and I’m struggling enough with that. I really miss my sugary lattes!

  3. First one I read…I was like, hey wait she’s doing it again?! haha, but then realized this was last month! So are you going to do a post about your results? How you feel? Loved reading about your month. This is so fun!

  4. I put together a smash book/journal/planner thingy a couple of weeks ago just as a creative way of journaling as well as planning ahead. With that, I could easily do a sentence a day. What a great idea! I’ll have to join you with a post at the beginning of June.
