I'm going to try and hop on board this week. I've been MIA for a while now! I have a lot to accomplish this weenkend especially...so Why not put it up in a challenge and organize my tasks per day? Right? LOL

Saturday

1. Library, to return books and pay late fees(somehow got my days mixed up! Ugh!)
2. Head to the farmers market to get my scissors sharpened for work(I'm a hair dresser, and during the summer time, there is a man that heads to the big farmers market and does sharpening!)
3. Put gas in my car
4. Call about an apartment for rent....Need to find a better neighborhood to live in
5. Laundry at the laundry mat....I hate this chore!
6. Install my air conditioner, it's supposed to get up to 95, this week!
7. Clean and organize in my bedroom
8. Officially get out all summer clothes and hide away some winter items
9. Sort and organize my piles of papers-shred what needs to be shredded
10. Work on knitting the baby blanket for my sis, her baby is due in July( I need to get my butt moving on this)
11. Plan out my weekly shopping and couponing for tomorrow
12. Clean out my fridge


This is a very ambitious list for me....but I'm going to try and accomplish most of it today! Off I go...to get it all done! :) Have a great day everyone!

~We've had a busy morning around here. We all went early to my ultrasound(baby is perfect, 2lbs), then to get donuts for second breakfast, then to the park to let the kids play and then to the library. I'm enjoying a second cup of coffee before lunch. Then I'm running a couple of easy errands with some fun stops at the thrift stores. After that I've scheduled in some reading time. I'm not being ambitious about my list today, just taking me time.
This morning's check marks:
1. library
2. kids to park
3.clean counters/empty sink

Here's what I have accomplished so far today:

DH and I entertained ourselves with wonderful friends and delicious food at the brunch this morning.

we stopped by my classroom and I picked up my computer to start clearing off everything on it.

I emailed by parts doctor's office manager about what's happening with my knee so she can fill him in on Monday.

Took a three hour nap after the brunch

Got the light colored laundry out for DH to start!!

Okay - I'm ready to start the rest of my Sunday!!

~I spent the morning organizing digital pictures and blogging. I've been putting it off for so long but with DH home today to take care of the homeschooling and keep the kids busy I was finally able to get those off my list!

10.organize and upload digital pictures for blog
11-26. blog

Now I'm trying to decide whether to go back to my regularly scheduled programming now or tomorrow. I'm feeling very tempted to take the 40 minute drive to the fabric store today just because I can. :p ~

Hope you went to the fabric store Nuisance!!

Really impressed with everyone's lists and the accomplishments. Have been getting a lot of paperwork done at school today - have lots of sick students, so our numbers are really low today.

Tonight I'll be watching the last '24' and continuing to clean out my school computer....probably some lei making too!!

Tuesday:
[-]1. Pack box China
2. Pack box China[/-] actually did three, and still have some leftover
3. Put away suitcases
4. Top to bottom tidy up
5. Take down all pictures
6. Course chat 7PM

Spent most of the morning on the computer dealing with getting information requested by the lawyer and movers.

I'm out of coffee and tape. I know I've already done my packing quota for the day, but I hate tidying up stuff that could just be going in a box. The coffee is an even bigger problem ;) I'm tempted to walk down to Zellers, but it's 30ºC out and I don't think the kids can go that far in the heat.
