Weekly Goals


Can someone tell me where last week went?

I think I spent too much time reading. 

No more summer school, but Baby Girl has 2 more weeks of a day camp thing at her school so I need to get busy before my days are filled with trying to entertain her. 

Here's the plan

Clean out magazine pile

Clean out paper pile(s)

Work on one wreath order

Get caught up on online work

Clean out refrigerator

Prescription refill

Take donations to thrift store

Drop off expired coupons

Baseball practice, girl scout meeting and girl scout field trip(Saturday with Baby Girl)

Thing 1 to dentist

That should keep me busy since it's a holiday week.

Okay, where did last week go?

It's all a bit of a blur because Joseph worked through the weekend. 


The first week of summer school flew by,  and I can't believe we hitting the double digit dates of June already!

Here's the plan:

Finish up grocery shopping

Mop the floors if it ever decides to quit raining for more than a few hours

Work on garage if we ever get a break in the rain.

Work on basement

Work on decluttering craft stuff. This one is going to hurt, lol

Baby girl has baseball practice(Tuesday) and Girl Scouts(Thursday)

Take Thing 1 back for her surgery recheck

Drop off some donations

Attend a brunch on Friday

That should keep me busy this week, especially since I also have drive Thing 1 around since she's on pain med.

I'm still alive! The end of the school year got so busy! Girl scouts, band, orchestra, and generally keeping up with life got in the way of doing some of the small stuff. 

What's happened around here?

Thing 1 got a job, then her driver's license, and we purchased a car for her(she's paying us back). 

Thing 2 wrapped up his freshman year, signed up for cross country and is now in summer school.

Baby girl loved girl scouts(and I some how got suckered into being an assistant leader for Brownies in the fall), started baseball season, and is going to summer school also. 

Joseph's been working his Monday through Friday job and picking up extra work on the weekends. 

I've been trucking along cleaning out the house...just the first day of summer vacation and the girls cleaned out a big lawn and leaf bag full of clothes(immediately listed on freecycle and was gone), a regular trash bag of shoes, and a couple full of trash out of their room.  I'm slowly cleaning along one wall in the garage..I sold off almost all of my books, Tupperware, and a bunch of miscellaneous items. I have almost as much ready to go to the donation place. I work around the house everyday but it seems to multiply faster than rabbits, lol. 

Here's the plan for the week:

Catch up library books

Take my mom to the store

Take Thing 1 to get her wisdom teeth removed(Wednesday)

Work on garage

Work on basement

Take a couple bags of stuff to donation center

With 2 baseball practices, Thing 1's oral surgery, and getting 2 of the 3 in the groove of summer school, I'm keeping the list short and sweet this week.

It's been almost a month since I posted!

Um, hello, where did you go?

I know I haven't been asleep because I'm exhausted, lol. 

Needless to say, it's been a little busy around here.

Lots of activities with the hooligans and I think I spent the rest of the time with my nose in a book, lol.

Here's the plan for the week

Finish up bedroom closet(I came up with a new deep cleaning/decluttering system. I pick one room to focus on for the week, then break it down into 5 parts. That way I only have to work for an hour or 2 and I dont get burned out. Last week was our bedroom and I had one day that I spent in the car, so I need to do my last section, the closet)

Start decluttering office

Do mending and sew on Baby Girl's patches

Grocery shopping

Continue listing items for sale

With all of my normal stuff that needs done, this is all the extra I'm going to try to squeeze in!

Sorry y'all, it's been crazy nuts around here. 

Mostly the weather, which throws a monkey wrench into any plan. 

But here's to hopefully good weather from here on out, and my ability to get on the computer because Joseph is working, lol.

I can't believe March is flying by.

Yes, it's totally because my oldest turns 17 on Thursday.


Anyways..most of this week's goals is cleaning the house and party planning.

Personally, I'd like to skip the cleaning but....

Wash Curtains

Finish up laundry

Clean living room and bathroom from top to bottom

Fix Thing 1's cake

Finish purchasing party supplies
Continue listing items for sale
Organize Thing 2's clothes
Take Thing 1 to renew her permit
Birthday Lunch!
Go with Baby Girl's girl scout troop to sell cookies
And that's about it. It should keep us busy(thankfully the kids are also on Spring Break so I have extra hands)
