Tuesday's "To-do's"

Happy Tuesday!  The kids only have 3 days of school this week so its a week of trying to fit in all the to-do's around here!  Boy do I need an easier way to get things done.  A while back one of my readers mentioned to "simplify" things so I'm not so overwhelmed!  WELL I actually took her advice and did some things differently these last couple weeks.  I'm still a little overwhelmed BUT the good news is I am crossing more off the list!  I got one of my kids checked off the list for Christmas(been surfin ads for what he likes and scored some sales)!!  Got our holiday return address labels ordered!  Slowly but surely I am ridding the house of the RIDICULOUS amount of CRAP!!  Which will soon turn into some extra cash for the holidays when I have a yard sale!

One of my biggest problems is starting a cleaning project, getting almost to the end then leaving it!  That just adds to the mess around here!  I wish I could be more organized like my mom!  Her home looks like its straight outta the Pottery barn Magazine!  I know I couldn't TOTALLY pull that off with 3 messy boys(husband included) in my house!  I can dream right?

Well now that I've probably confused you all with my craziness, here are 5 things I am DETERMINED to get done this week!!

1. Blog a book review
2. Mop the floors (I absolutely LOATHE this chore)
3. Clean out the silverware drawer (got a new tray to organize it!)
4. Pot this plant for the kitchen thats been sitting on the porch for 2 weeks!
5. Think of 5 things I am thankful for this week and blog it!

I'll let you know how it turns out.

Now YOU tell ME what ONE thing you hope to cross off your "To-do" list this week!

Mopping doesn't bother me but, doing dishes does. Ug hate that. Good luck to you with your list and good for you for getting Christmas presents done already for one kiddo. That is impressive!!

Thanks Casey! Dishes aren't my fave either but easier than other chores. I'm hoping to get my other son done this weekend! =)

Off my to-do list this week. The corner that gets all the junk in my office. Ahem. The two corners. One is done. I will re-comment when the other is done.
