Goals For The Week Of 5/7

Last week I had a HUGE to do list:

  • Clean Carpets 
  • Clean floor under little box 
  • Bathe cats 
  • Get ready for exterminator
  • Continue To Keep Up With Email 
  • Continue to keep up with laundry/dishes. 
  • Finish up a few organizing tasks in the kitchen
  • Get up by 6:25 each morning
  • Go to bed by 11:45 each night.
  • Pick out a new novel  and begin reading it.
I am happy to say that I got it all done, except for starting a new novel (though I did read a great deal of the household organization book I've been reading).  I also only accomplished about half of the kitchen organization tasks that I wanted to get to, so I'm going to continue working on that this week.  I even did fairly well sticking to the sleep pattern, so I'm going to try to go earlier on both times (did not work so well today!)

Here are the things I plan to accomplish this week:

  • Clip/Reorganize Coupons
  • Continue Working On Kitchen Tasks
  • Follow along with the FlyLady's Daily Missions (just so happens she's working in the kitchen this week!, and last week she was in the entry way that I needed to put back together after the steamcleaning!  I've tried to follow along with her multiple times in the past and just could not keep up, but I'm feeling much more organized these days, and I feel I just might be up to the task--already scrubbed my stove today!)
  • Continue to keep up with email/laundry/dishes  (the laundry and dishes got a little behind last week, but I worked hard over the weekend to get back on top of them!)
  • Move plants to bigger pots yet again (Done, and I think it just might be the last time I have to do this!)
  • Finish organizing book
  • Select another organizing book and a novel and begin both  (I read the organizing books on my cell phone Kindle app while waiting for the bus in the afternoons).
  • Be in bed by 11:30 each night and up by 6:20 each morning.
  • Tidy up toys after dinner each night (having the kids help and learn the habit).
  • Reorganize small freezer over fridge.  That thing is packed from all the freezer cooking, and I need to see what's in there!
Well, it didn't seem like I was going to have as busy of a week, but this looks like a pretty long list, too!  But, you know what?  I've learned something about myself (at least this is making me remember something I'd forgotten)...the more things I have to do, the more I am able to do!  If I keep busy, I get stuff done, but if I think I don't have things to do, nothing gets done.   That's why making these lists has been ever so helpful to me!  It's always right there in front of my face so I can see what's still on my agenda!

Also this week, I will be blogging daily about my $1.50/day Live Below The Line Challenge and attempting to keep up with Money Saving Mom's second week of her freezer cooking challenge (I'm really excited about lunch recipes).  Lot's of challenges!  It is also teacher appreciation week, and my daughter has her class poetry recital Thursday night.

What's on your agenda for the week?

Over from moneysavingmom. I love your goal about getting up earlier and going to bed earlier. I might have to work on that one for next week! Thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you. I should have started this much sooner since its almost summer and my daughter won't have to get up that early, but I need some me time! (And to stop staying up past midnight! LOL)

Hi, I've come over from Money Saving Mom. You have a pretty ambicious list! Good luck with getting everything done.

God bless.

Thank you Carol. It does look pretty daunting to me now, but I figure I might as well just tell myself I'm going to get it done while I'm on a roll. When I stop being so busy it's hard for me to build the momentum back up! I plan to work hard until school lets out and then take a week off and play with the kids! =)
