As you know, last week was a little unusual here at Chez FG, and I’m trying to play some serious catch-up before we start school next week.
(Fortunately, Joshua’s room looks nothing like this now!)
And since I’m giving myself permission to go a little light on the blogging for the moment, I’m just gonna share my to-do list for the week.
(I always like reading other people’s to-do lists, so if you’re like me, this is your lucky day!)
I still have some stuff on my summer bucket list, and then there are things that need to be done due to my week of neglect.
For instance, an honest-to-goodness grocery shopping trip really needs to happen.
This is probably a ridiculously ambitious list and I will most likely not get it all done, but I figure it can’t hurt to aim high!
Also, many of these things related to finishing Joshua’s room, but I do better when I break jobs down into small tasks. So that’s why there’s no, “Finish Joshua’s room.” on this list.
-Go grocery shopping.
-Buy birthday presents for Joshua, who turns 15 (!) a week from tomorrow.
-Finish painting Joshua’s moldings.
-Rehang photos/clock/bulletin board on Joshua’s wall.
-Figure out what to do re toy storage in Joshua’s room.
(His room is the biggest, so it still houses some toys, even though he is quite beyond the toy stage of life. Maybe we could get rid of some, or stash some in the back of the closet or something.)
-Declutter Joshua’s bookshelf, as I’m pretty sure there are some things in there that can go.
-Buy sheets/blanket for Joshua’s bed.
-Take old electronics to local recycling center (from when we decluttered the office closet)
-Take donation items to Goodwill and Habitat Re-Store.
-Make a My Publisher photo book by Saturday.
(I have an expiring photo book Groupon. Good thing I never put these off until the last minute. Except EVERY SINGLE TIME.)
-Do returns (I need to return some mail-order stuff to 3 different companies.)
-Help S&Z organize/declutter their room.
(They have too much stuff, which is making it nigh onto impossible for them to keep it clean. This project does not have to be done this week, but I would really like to tackle it before school.)
-Redo chore lists.
(This is a bucket list item that could wait, but I’d prefer to get it done this week.)
I’ll keep you posted on my progress because doing so will be quite motivating to me.
