A Monday Minute

My organization progress for today:

1. Made a to do list for the week, including due dates for bills, etc.

2. Paid one bill that was due.

3. Checked my little planner for any appointments or things needed to be done.

4. Cleaned one bathroom before leaving home. I want to complete one item on my basic cleaning list each day so Saturdays can be reserved for sewing!

5. I know what's for supper!

6. Have made a mental note to thaw frozen chicken breasts for tomorrow night's supper. I need to write that down! Note: I just stopped typing and wrote it down!

7. Need to go on line to library's website to check when books are due. Note: I just stopped typing and wrote it down.

8. When I get home I'll do one load of laundry, start to finish.

9. I haven't written down an exact menu plan for the week, but have several options in mind and the ingredients to make them. I want to plan each night's supper the night before. If I write down what we eat on a calendar each day for 2 weeks, I'll already have a plan for the following two weeks.

10. Made notes for ideas to blog about as they come to mind.

11. I plan to look at my to do list at least every morning and every night, if not more often. It doesn't do any good to write it down if I don't look at it!

That's great! I'm working on getting back onto the boat with my lists, too. Thanks for motivating me!

Thanks for the reminder. I need to get back on track about my list. Some days I do it and others I don't. Your so right about stopping at the very moment you think about something and write it down. I can forget it within two minutes and know I was suppose to remember something and can't!

Good job Mama! I find that just by writing it down, I remember it. Sometimes I don't even have to look at the list again - but I HAVE to write it down first or I will never remember at all!

She's Here! Victoria!

Its been an exciting week! Victoria arrived on Monday and I kept her brother for 3 days. Only bad thing is that today I am home from work ...
