Name 3 things you did yesterday

This morning I was watching YouTube videos as I often do (because I'm freaking addicted) and on Sprinkle of Glitter's vlog channel, Sprinkle of Chatter, her comment was, "Tell me 3 things you did yesterday."  Seems simple enough.  I've been trying to be less of a social media lurker and more active because I really do love the things that people post, so I thought, I'll comment... but I couldn't,

I couldn't remember 3 different things.  It was Monday so I went to work... um... yup that is all that I could think of.  That is so bad.  After a few very long minutes I decided that this wasn't just bad but also very sad.  

What am I doing with my life?  It's just zipping by at warp speed and I'm just barely hanging on for dear life to the moments.  I started to think about why I started this blog and why I've been trying to start a channel on YouTube.  I didn't want life to pass me in a flash and the next thing you know, my daughter is graduating high school going off to college and leaving her creaky old parents in the dust.  I want to remember the first things she says (that I can really understand) and when she finally decided that she could walk on her own without holding my hand.  I'm not sure that I will remember those things if I'm just worried about what I'm going to pack for her lunch tomorrow and if my kitchen is clean.  

What is truly important right now?  I'm not sure, but I'm going to make sure that each day I work harder and harder to remember that I've got the most precious little gem of a daughter (yup, I'm totally biased; I'd expect any parent to say that about their little ones) and a massively patient and understanding husband who loves me and tells me I look great even when I'm feeling more meh than anything.  I am a victim of my own expectations.  They need to come down a little.

My goal is to make a point of really cherishing at least three events each day.  What did you do yesterday?
