In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order

To do list update

Below is my original goals and how I did.  If I keep checking in on what I actually get done, I will either create more realistic goals or get more done.

Plan for today:

  • NO—Clean bathrooms–cleaned 1/3 toilets (nothing else)
  • YES—Exercise–weight circuit 2x with running as warm up and breaks  (changed some exercises, but complete workout)
  • NO—Clean surfaces so decorations can be placed on it
  • YES/NO—Plan for week for school (planned Monday and Tuesday)
  • YES–Plan chores for the week (rough draft)

Bonus tasks:

  • Get Groceries—NO
  • Organize counter—NO
  • Purchase Christmas presents—YES—got 3 more presents I needed
  • Visited with Mom and sister
  • Watched parts of Packer Game

Overall I had a productive day without being stressful–perfect for a Sunday.  Now to relax before the work week and sleep.

Christmas Decorations!

It’s December!  There is snow! Time to decorate for Christmas!   The nice part of it is that it actually motivates me to clean.   We wanted to vacuum before we set up the tree so I cleaned up the toys in the front room and vacuumed.  Then I figured since it was out, I might as well do the family room.  Then I got into a rhythm and started cleaning the floor.  It felt good.

My oldest daughter (3) is starting to get into it.  She grabbed ornaments that she saw on the counter and started putting them on the tree on her own.  I had Christmas music in the background and it was so fun to sing along to and get both girls to dance to it.  I love to see the enthusiasm that little kids bring.  As you get more excited, they get more excited.

Plan for today:

  • Clean bathrooms
  • Exercise–weight circuit 2x with running as warm up and breaks
  • Clean surfaces so decorations can be placed on it
  • Plan for week for school
  • Plan chores for the week

Bonus tasks:

  • Get Groceries
  • Organize counter
  • Purchase Christmas presents

Hopefully I can make a good dent on the list. Good luck getting your own list done!
