to do list

As I sit down to write the menu for the week, I’m writing out my 4
weekly “to do” lists (personal tasks, blogging tasks, cleaning chores,
less common maintenance cleaning tasks).   It’s helping me to accomplish
things that easily get pushed aside otherwise, even if I don’t get them
all checked off! 

Hubby was home all last week on forced vacation (not enough work right now – but most jobs are better than no jobs right?).  It made the week much smoother, but I also bummed too much just because I wanted to play :-)  We tackled the door frames as a family and then last night hubby and I watched TV while going through 6 kitchen drawers – I warned you we had multiple junk drawers!  I’m hoping to keep up the momentum this week while hubby is off yet again.  (Good thing is some home repairs are getting done – bad thing is he might not have any vacation days left to do to Disney in the spring)

This week’s maintenance chores in addition to daily functioning cleaning chores: 

  • Vaccuum couches
  • Vaccuum and wipe down all baseboards (moving as much of the furniture as I can to get to them)
  • Spend 30 minutes tackling my office which has become the catch all room once again. 
  • 15 minutes daily tidy after the kids go to bed (I tend to do 30 mins one night and none the next, but it still works!)

See? Nothing too involved, just tasks that will help me stay on top of things at home instead of letting the week slip away from me because none of those things ever seem pressing enough to be done immediately.

What extra things are you working on this week?
