Thu, 07-08-2010 - 12:30pm

Seriously?! The Summer is 1/2 way over already! Where has the time gone? A friend of mine gave me a really good idea to write a Summer To-Do list to stay motivated! Will you join me?! We can stay motivated together!

****

My Summer To Do List

- Host fabulous 4th of July Party (i love starting a to do list with an easy check off, makes me feel accomplished!)
- Do a giant jigsaw puzzle with my hubby
- Go to the River to enjoy a lazy day of tubing with family.
- Read at least 4 books for pleasure.
- Have friends over for dinner
- Go to North Carolina for a week and visit with my family
- Swim as much as possible with Kids
- Find more unique flip flops
- Scrapbook
- Finish Redecorating the Kitchen.
- Spend as much fun time with Kids as possible
- Family game hour at least 3 nights a week
- Attend Womens Class at my church
- Spontaneous trip to the beach
- Visit with old Friends at least once every 2 weeks.

So that is my Summer To Do list. What is on your list? I challenge you to write one and post it on your fridge. Share a favorite To Do if you want to help inspire others!

This is a great idea, Alyson, especially for me!

My list:

-Get our freaking rental rented out (including finishing all the housework over there)
-Finish setting up the guest room:
+ Bring the bed down from the attic
+ Set up the shelves in there with games, etc.
+ Get random crap out of there
-Finish setting up the library room:
+ Buy a corner shelf from Ikea and set it up
+ Buy twin mattress from Ikea for bed in there
+ Finish organizing the books
+ Move the last shelves over from the old library
+ Put books on shelves
+ Set up and make bed
+ Get random crap out of there
-Set up the changing station in the bathroom for the baby
-Find a new home for all the sheets and blankets that are currently in the bathroom and put them away.
-Setup our bedroom for the new baby
+ Decide how we want it organized
+ Move furniture if necessary
+ Hang pictures on walls
+ Arrange dresser-top odds and ends
- Measure all the baby clothes and organize by ACTUAL size (the sizes listed on the tags seem completely random to me).
- Finish registering for the baby

Sigh--I'll probably add to this later--the upstairs is obviously in chaos right now but all of our energy has been going into fixing up the rental since we haven't had any luck renting it out yet. Argh. Hopefully that ends soon though and I can focus on my own house!

How are you doing on your list, Alyson, did you get anything crossed off, yet?

Well, we're almost done with our registry, LOL--the funnest thing on my list gets done first of course! I wasn't feeling very good this week so today when I was feeling a bit better I mostly cleaned up the kitchen and living room and did a little laundry (and spent hours on IV and FB, LOL).

I'm not sure it would count as a good excuse, Alyson!! LOL! I'm glad you think so, though!
