Recently my brother has introduced me to the "new" definition of the word BOOM! I used to think that it only meant a loud sound, like the one you here with a firework or a bomb. Well, it is not just that anymore. It means DONE. I kind of like the new word. It gives personality and energy to the completion of a project. Laundry....BOOM! Dishes...BOOM! Dinner...BOOM! I also feel a little bit better about myself too.
The first time I used it out loud was this week. I looked at my son when I finished putting away my laundry and said, "BOOM"! Of course he looked at me with a wide-eyed deer look and was wondering what was going on in my head. So, now everyday little things are even getting the "BOOM"- like getting my hair in a ponytail, getting dressed, dressing the kids, filling up the car with gas....you name it I "BOOMED" it. (Yes, even going to the bathroom got "BOOMED" this week!)
We even got a photo with our whole family in it this week---BOOM!
Needless to say, my week has been much more fun and really quite fulfilling. I feel like I have accomplished a bunch and with this momentum, who knows what I could do. Even, my grocery list looked like this:
1. milk- BOOM
2. icecream- BOOM
3. toilet paper- BOOM, BOOM
You get the picture! So make this your "BOOM" weekend. It will make you feel like a million bucks! Seriously! Try it!
And last on my To Do List for today: Blog- BOOM!!!!!
