OK, it's Monday and I've got a lot to do for the holiday and guests so I'm reviving this thread, which helps me with accountability. I fell and hurt myself and so fell behind with the holiday planning I listed before.

Anyone else want to join?

First things first:

Finalize weekly menu plan for this week
Finalize Thanksgiving menu plan
Spend 10 minutes decluttering the pantry

Well, it's Tuesday, but I need to do these same things and more.
My goal, by 2 is to have done these three things and clear the kitchen counter of anything that doesn't belong in the kitchen.
Wish me luck

Good luck Cheenya!

I got stuff done yesterday but didn't get back here to post. Today is super busy and I have to be on a call in a minute so I'll be back to list tasks. Just wanted to say hi.

I did get a load of laundry going.

Hi Avent - thanks for keeping me company

Well, I did get Thursday's menu figured out - that was the easy one, and I finalized today's meal plan
I also organized a play date for DD (she has a friend over now to occupy her) and have DS taking a nap, so I'm off to see how much I can get done in the next hour, besides finishing up the previous list I'm going to try to clean up the bathroom and get a load of diapers washed.

Well I did the bathroom, the diapers, and a load of dishes, but I still haven't finished the table. That needs to happen soon so we can eat!
I'm hoping to also wash the kitchen floor before dinner, we'll see.

Well I finalized the Thanksgiving menu, combined the items needed with the weekly menu, and made a heck of a long shopping list for DH. He just left with DS to go get everything. I think it will take at least 2.5 hours, so I need to:

--Book airline tickets
--Do another load of laundry
--Clean the kitchen
--Renew my CSA subscription
--Go through a huge stack of mail

Good morning, 18 people will be here tomorrow - yikes.
Last night I DH worked late unexpectedly and I had to get the kids ready to come with me to a meeting, so I didn't get nearly what I wanted to done.
This morning, DS (and I) just woke up, I was planning on getting up early - oh well.
Before DD wakes up I want to clean up everything I set off the table last night, and straighten the computer area. If I'm really lucky I'll also wash the bathroom floor.

Good morning.

DH and DS are st Spanish class and then they're going to pick up the turkey from the butcher so I'm running around cleaning. When they get back we have to get the turkey in the brine and then we're heading out for awhile. Once DS goes down for his nap the cooking really begins!

Well, its crunch time now, I need to finish the dinner dishes so that when DH gets back from last minute grocery shopping he can wash all the serving dishes for tomorrow. So, here is the list for tonight...

Wash dishes
Clean off DR table
Give DD bath and straighten bathroom shelves
Finish washing kitchen floor
Fold and put away 2 loads laundry
Wash dining room floor
Tidy toy room
Wash turkey
Make stuffing


Written out it seems so manageable. We'll see how much I can do in an hour before bedtime. I'm hoping not to have to stay up too late.
