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 and I were both more productive last week, although I didn’t do the baseboards until this morning (he helped).  I ended up getting the piano moved so I could get some huge dust bunnies of the back of it – yikes!  My biggest problem with productivity?  Playing Bloons Tower Defense 5 :-(  It’s soooo fun and addicting!  I’m challenging myself to not play until after 9 at night this week.  Hopefully that will help me get more done.

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

  • Dust and polish our bedroom furniture – every little nook and cranny!
  • 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?
