Alrighty, so yesterday I wrote up my 'To Do List' and then proceeded to go on a ramble. Silly me, I blame the lack of sleep the last few days since Peter has a sinus infection I've been listening to the windows rattle in their place with his snoring!
Here's the goal list and I'll cross off what I got finished yesterday and star the items newly added. I'm expecting to go through this process of add and subtract for awhile.
Goals before Next Tuesday
- Make Menu for next week
- Grocery Shopping
Clean Coffee Maker Clean Stove Grates
- Plan Thanksgiving Food Cook Times
- Keep up on laundry & dishes - continuous
Clean Fronts of Kitchen Cabinets
- Clean Oven
- Clean Bathroom
- Dust Living room (also listed vacuum but that will be an on going thing it is Fall after all)
- Clean off random items from flat surfaces (vague but if you are disorganized like me it'll make perfect sense)
- Put up Thanksgiving decor
- Clean doors & hallway walls (one of these days I will get the time to paint the hallway, primer just attracts every type of grime)
- Return Kara's PC (For those that don't know my husband is the resident computer guru so we constantly have computers coming in and out of here - it's also what he does for a living outside the home)
- Clean Kids' Rooms
- Plan Crafts for kids (The girls are getting to the ages I can start teaching them how to cook some but mommy might rattle a few screws loose if they are underfoot the whole time)
- *Fix Screen Door
- *Rake up leaves
- *Clean Window bases (need more coffee you know that wood part at the bottom of the window)
- *Clean off side porch
I also took care of the suggested task by Money Saving Mom and wiped down/sanitized all the door knobs last night.
Lots left to do and lots I'm thinking about right now. I need to try and take it a step at a time but it's kind of like watching an accident the moments right before something bad happens (kid runs into the window or something) it's like 'nooooooooo' slow motion and that's how I'm feeling about Thanksgiving right now. I need to get time back into perspective.
