Weekly Goals

Last week I shared my list of goals for the week:

  • Organize my recipe binder.
  • Finish going through my clothes.
  • Clean my desk. 
  • Keep up with the laundry/dishes. 
  • Keep up with email. 
  • Use up all cooked ham and chicken.

I am very pleased to say that I was able to accomplish ALL of these things.   I did toss one bag of ham into the freezer all by itself, but it can be made into sandwiches later, so it's all good.

This week is a little bit different for making goals, as there are things that I *have* to get done as opposed to things that I'd like to get done.

Our pets are causing some major grief around here right now.  The kitties have been using the carpet instead of the little box, and it's flea season!

Yesterday, my husband steam cleaned the carpet in question and we applied various odor and urine removing treatments.  I continued this process today trying to remove all the smell, and I also crawled under my desk on my hand and and knees with Simple Green and wet rags and scrub brushes and CLEANED the floor underneath the litter box.  That was not a pleasant task, but it is over, and I've laid paper down under it for future "spills".  BLEH!

On Wednesay morning, the exterminator is coming.   We have them on a 3 month rotation, so it happened to be time.   I asked for the flea treatment, but that will involve picking up all items off of the floors, including closets (we tackled my girls room tonight--playroom tomorrow!), and vacuuming the whole house beforehand, plus leaving the house for 2-4 hours.  I'm very glad that I participated in the 4 Weeks To A More Organized Home Challenge this past month because I don't have nearly as much work to do since most of the cleaning has recently been taken care of.

So here is my list of goals for the week:

  • Clean Carpets  (done, and drying)
  • Clean floor under little box  (done)
  • Bathe cats  (my husbands job!  HAHA)
  • Get ready for exterminator  (working on it!)
  • Continue To Keep Up With Email  (I've added cleaning out my facebook newsfeed to this goal.  I've unliked a ton of pages that were just taking up space in my newsfeed, and I can actually see my friends again!  Seriously you guys...I was following well over 500 blog pages on my facebook.   That is simply not necessary!  Of course I have my favorites that I would never abandon, but I had to say enough is enough!)
  • Continue to keep up with laundry/dishes.  (Still doing well with this one--doing one load of each per day).
  • Finish up a few organizing tasks in the kitchen--will schedule myself one per day after Mr. Exterminator is over with.
  • Get up 5 minutes before my daughter's alarm each morning.   (She's been poking me going MOMMY GET UP!  Your alarm is going off!...Sad times!)  This will be 6:25 and I plan to shave 5 minutes off of that each week until I'm getting up by 6.
  • Go to bed at a decent time each night.   (Hmmm....what is decent these days?)   I've been past midnight going to bed most nights, and when I've gone to bed I've had trouble sleeping, so I am tired and grumpy.  Yes, I am.   I want to be in bed by 10pm each night.  As it is currently 10:52, obviously, that is not happening tonight.   My goal this week is to bed by 11:45, and I intend to shave 15 minutes off of that each week until I am going to bed by 10.   Knowing me, I'll never make it before 10:30, but I'm being optimistic.  ;)
  • Pick out a new novel  (I've got a TON of Kindle downloads--all FREE of course!) and begin reading it.  --Obviously this will wreak havoc on the previous goal....but I do so love to read!

Wow...that looks like a much longer list typed than it does on my little notebook paper here...But I'll be positive and say that I am up for it!

Also, Money Saving Mom announced a new challenge for May that I'm super excited about--freezer cooking!  =D

I'm not sure I'll be participating everyday, but I have been wanting to do more freezer cooking posts, so I'm going to try my best to follow along as I am able!

WOW!! That is a lot, but some are already done! YAY! And the others will probably go really fast once you get started on them! I think my list keeps growing. One of my goals is to get in bed by a decent hour as I am grumpy and crabby lately, too! However, seems like everytime I try, something else comes up or I simply can't sleep! Good luck with yours!

That is exactly what keeps happening to me. I was a total insomniac all last week! I don't get it! Thanks! Good luck to you, too!
