I Will Do One Thing Today

...and that thing is acquiring a queen costume.

My motto lately has been just that. Focusing on one thing to do each day that is outside of my normal routine. It may be grocery shopping, or doing a load of laundry, or putting the Christmas decorations in storage. When I look at my To Do list, I get overwhelmed at all the stuff that needs to be done. So I determine each morning to Do One Thing Today.

Today my goal is to find a queen costume to wear to Candy's princesses-and-knights themed birthday party. Mom wants me to dress up as a queen and "knight" the boys as they arrive. I will try thrift stores first and work my way up to the party supply stores. I am hoping to find a long velvet prom dress castoff, but I may have to go with a packaged costume. Also hoping to find a powdered wig with ringlets and some big costume jewelry to complete the royal look.
