The weekend thread was a great motivation and help for me to keep me focused and accountable as I got what I needed to get done this week done, so I'm starting another one for this week. Join in! I'd love to have company


My first list:
*Finish cleaning living room
*Tidy office and take pictures
*Tidy bedroom and take pictures
*Tidy boys room
*Address envelopes and stamp
*Respond to work emails

Here is to a productive, wonderful week for all of us here on MDC

Go Go Go! What method do you use? I usually put on 15-20mins worth of music and clean until it's done playing.

Completed tasks are in purple. (FWIW: I don't open my computer on Mondays until I accomplish my home blessing hour, so these were completed this morning.)

I also found the Weekend Accountability thread very helpful and fruitful. Thanks!

I have a few tasks to rollover to this week:

~ Empty the dishwasher again. (The new dishwasher detergent left everything coated in white powder, so I had to run it again with white vinegar.) I emptied it this morning, then ran it again with the few dishes we had accumulated plus all the "parts that will come off stove".
~ Scrub the stove.
~ Clear off and clean the kitchen table.


(Adding to those...)
~ Wash master bed sheets, line dry them in the sunshine, and put them away. They are washed and drying in the sunshine.
~ Wash DD's sheets, line dry them in the sunshine, and put them away. Help DD put on clean sheets from closet.
~ Sweep all the crevices downstairs and run the Roomba.
~ Mop the downstairs flooring (cork).
~ Clean microwave inside and out.
~ Clean oven inside and out.
This didn't go so well, so it will need another round at some point.
~ Sweep the front walkway and door and walls.
~ Get the mail.
~ Pay any bills due.
~ Download all financial accounts to Quicken. Match receipts to accounts. Recycle or file receipts (most get recycled).
~ Run financial reports for the week.
~ Finish scrapbooking my mini goal. (I'm working on a 13-year, 3-album, 1100 picture scrapbook. It definitely behooves me to have mini goals! )

Me too. I set a timer or play music and do 15 minutes at a time. It is amazing what you can get done in 15 minutes

This afternoon has not been so productive... I am leaving on the bus in an hour to go downtown and I want to get more done before then... I am so close to being done in the office, bedroom and living room... just have to push through.

*Tidy boys room
*Respond to work emails
*Address envelopes and stamp

Still need to finish:
*Finish cleaning living room
*Tidy office and take pictures
*Tidy bedroom and take pictures

I'm going easy on myself since this is a busy week with work (I work at home).

Today I cleaned the bathroom sinks/counters & toilets and reorganized the linen closet.

Tuesday: Mop kitchen, foyer, and bathrooms.

Wednesday: Dust everywhere.

Thursday: Vacuum everywhere.

Friday: Reorganize DS1's room, including his out-of-control captain's bed cabinets.

Saturday: Reorganize little ones' room.

Sunday: Rest Or, laundry. It's kind of like rest?

OK, clearly I need in on this thread. The little pieces of paper with random lists don't seem to be getting the job done.

This week I will:
- make a dental and eye appointment for dd
- clear out unnecessary papers from filing cabinet
- buy several more rubbermaid bins for storage
- clear out five more cardboard boxes from storage room and repack contents into plastic (to combat/prevent silverfish)
- prepare a meal plan focused on items in pantry/freezer
- fill one more bag for Salvation Army
- fill one large garbage bag
- post several items on Craigslist
- clean fridge
- strongly encourage dh to remove boxes of papers to his office
- have two solid hours to myself doing something I enjoy

Diane, SAHM to DD (June 05) and DS (April 07).

Okay... I think that I am going to need your help. Here's the scenario DP and DS are going away tomorrow to the inlaws and I will be joining them on Friday. While I have some alone time I would like to CLEAN THE BASEMENT

Here's the thing I will need your help!!! I will need motivation to come home from work and work on it for a few uninterupted hours on Wednesday and Thursday. Can you help me?
My goal is to make the basement usable by
1.) switch the shelving units and storage bins
2.) organize the shelves so that we can put things on them.
3.) get rid of 3 black trashbags before trash day on Friday morning!
4.) Identify 2 trash bags of clothing to give to goodwill on Friday!
5.) Recycle all of the cardboard by Friday morning


What do you think? Can I do it?!? I will come back and post tomorrow night after a few hours of work.

You sure can! Break it down and do it in chunks (15 minutes at a time works best for me). Then get a drink or move to another task. That way you don't get overwhelmed by what is facing you.

We're here to cheer you on

Completed tasks are in purple. (FWIW: I don't open my computer on Tuesdays until I accomplish my finances and paperwork tasks - on a different computer.)

~ Wash master bed sheets, line dry them in the sunshine, and put them away.

~ Wash DD's sheets, line dry them in the sunshine, and put them away. Help DD put on clean sheets from closet. I did it for her since she wasn't feeling well.
~ Clean oven inside and out. This didn't go so well on Monday, so it will need another round at some point.
~ Sweep the front walkway and door and walls.
~ Get the mail.
~ Pay any bills due.
~ Download all financial accounts to Quicken. Match receipts to accounts. Recycle or file receipts (most get recycled).
~ Run financial reports for the week.

~ Finish scrapbooking my mini goal. (I'm working on a 13-year, 3-album, 1100 picture scrapbook. It definitely behooves me to have mini goals! ) I *finally* finished a two-page layout that has taken me DAYS to do!!! I have more to finish to reach this goal, though.

Tomorrow is my "project" day, so I'll be on the computer earlier than on Mondays and Tuesdays and I'll type up my list then. I'm headed to bed now. Busy day!

First the rollovers from previous days:

~ Wash DD's sheets, line dry them in the sunshine, and put them away. (Her bed is already made with fresh sheets.)
~ Clean the oven again.
~ Sweep the front walkway, door, and walls.
~ Finish scrapbooking my mini goal.


Then, overdue items on my task list (computer) that didn't get on here (MDC):

~ Scan 2007 family portraits.
~ Rotate toiletries. (I love toiletries and "shopping" from my own supply each month makes me feel abundant! )


Today's list in my task list:

~ Get cash (our monthly amount).
~ Digital photo project. (I spend some time twice a month on this HUGE project.)
~ Take DD to ice skating practice and her lesson. (Two hours of being COLD for me, but usually a friend is there and we've been enjoying each other's company. I need to pack a bag in advance, including a book in case my friend doesn't make it this week.)
~ Start thinking about what project I will take with me to a scrapbook getaway weekend in late April. Keep working on my HUGE project? Or take a small project I can accomplish and bring my laptop as a back-up (to work on digital photo project)? If the latter, which project is small enough I can get it done in two days? This seems so far in advance, but really the next week (7-8 days) is about all the time I have due to camping, birthday celebrations, Easter celebrations, and our first REAL family vacation all coming in March and April before the scrapbook weekend.

Completed items are in green today. It has been over 3 hours and I haven't knocked much off these lists, but I have been busy the entire time!

This seems so far in advance, but really the next week (7-8 days) is about all the time I have due to camping, birthday celebrations, Easter celebrations, and our first REAL family vacation all coming in March and April before the scrapbook weekend.

I also cleaned out the cat's litter box, cooked myself breakfast, fed the cat, took out the trash, showered, dressed, made my bed, straightened up the bedroom, bathrooms (all 3), kitchen, and started the Roomba vacuuming the entire downstairs (not in that order). Online, I checked a few accounts for payments I set up yesterday (found out our tax refund is coming earlier than the IRS predicted); and I looked for hotels for our upcoming vacation (short leg; main portion is already booked).

I am thinking about the last item on the above list now and working through some logistics while I fix/eat lunch.

Today I made a dropoff at Goodwill and made a return at Target.

I've also washed a few loads, cleaned the kitchen and taken out the trash.

I also sent a thank you note out and went to the grocery store yesterday.

I feel the same and always stock up on favorite soaps. Makes me feel rich---gorgeous soaps and gorgeous flowers.
