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 is back to work this week!  He got a call late Friday afternoon that he would be heading back to the field bright and early today.  He thinks he’ll have 3 or 4 days of work.  Hopefully that means I’ll have a good work week too.  Many tasks have gotten pushed aside to spend extra time with him while he was “on vacation” – grrr!  This week it’s on to tackling the closets. Oh- and if you’re wondering how I did with my ‘no playing Bloons Tower Defense until after 9 pm challenge’ – I did good except for yesterday.  Unfortunately that also mean several nights I played from 9:30-1 am.  Hey- at least I got some stuff done before 9, right?

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

  • Organize 2 closets (should take about an hour each – make quick decisions by having an undecided box) while the kids are at school or playing with their Daddy.
  • 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?
