My meandering thoughts, captured in print and somewhat organized. 5 things or areas, any areas I want to focus on. My thoughts today are mostly To Do lists. If I can clear some of this stuff off my plate, well, I’ll have a lot less to do. =P

In addition to having some housework to catch up on, needing to re-focus in regards to school, having a lot of paperwork and bills type stuff to catch up on and a “bloggy” to do list as well,.. I’m trying to get into the habit of exercising – HA! We’ll see how it goes. 🙂

1.) My “Must-Do”s for today:

  • Make sure the girls get their school done & their room clean
  • Pay rent
  • Dishes, mop kitchen, wash two loads of laundry, fold that plus the already washed laundry
  • Grocery shopping
  • Exercise

2.) My Week:

  • Set up payments for upcoming bills
  • Get taxes ready to give to accountant
  • Regular chores & school
  • Sort, purge, organize box of papers on the piano
  • Exercise daily, creating the habit and building stamina, at least 30 minutes, working up to an hour.

3.) This Month:

  • Purge, reorganize filing cabinet
  • Purge, organize and store away “pile o stuff” in Big Daddy’s office to make room for the exercise machine.
  • Prep and turn in medical forms
  • Drama Queen turns 6!!

4.) Online To-Do:

  • Finish blog customization for Hollie @ Groovewoman
  • Finish setting up the page for my graphic design portfolio
  • Finish new blog design
  • Fix blog design for Classic Housewife
  • Submit posts for Digital Bliss.
  • Write post(s) for Inspired Bliss.

5.) Menu Planning

  • Buy Sunday papers each week (did this yesterday!)
  • Check into getting a subscription for the paper?
  • Sign up for the coupon sites Erin @ 5 Dollar Dinners recommended
  • Research the stores in the nearest town, which days they have their sales, if they double/triple coupons, etc.
  • Grocery shop this week as normal, gearing up for sale/coupon shopping in a few weeks.

Dizzy? I am! But with lists we can conquer – right? Right??
