Crazy Adventures in Parenting To-Do Tuesday

Yes, we are all back to being healthy {knocks on wood} and Spring Cleaning and Reorganization 2010 is on like Donkey Kong, yo. I feel totally rejuvenated getting the clutter under control, reorganizing things and getting our house squared away. And (AND!!) we’re redoing our gardens, too, so our house isn’t just looking nifty on the inside, but outside as well. Yippee!!

I think I may be high on allergy medicine and pollen, or something. I just can’t seem to stay away from the sun, the outdoors, and the fresh air. My kids definitely aren’t complainin’, nor are we when they sleep through the night like a rock. Heh.

OH YEAH! I purchased a used double-jogging stroller and those nifty Skechers Shape-Ups to walk with every day, too. Was so grateful to find a lady who didn’t like the color of hers willing to sell them to me at a wonderful price that happened to be my size! Hello, luck! {grin} I like the feelings in my legs after our nightly family walks. (Can I tell you how stoked I am that the weather has been more than cooperative to allow for nightly family walks?)

*Finish steam cleaning the house head to toe (top half of the stairs and the bedrooms are next)!
*Finish planting, hooray!
*Fertilize the lawn, and remember to water everyday.√√√√√
*Walk with the family. Every night. Loving. It.√√√
*Continue selling items left over from yard sale on sale sites like and (still going strong!)
*Donate. The. Seven. Big. Boxes. Of. Stuff. to the local mission *ahem*
*Finish paying our bills for the month (began but was interrupted)
*Grocery shopping/print coupons/list for this week√√√

Staying on my diet every day* (Or, at least, try to. Ahem.)√√√√√
Work out on 30 Day Shred, EAS Active More Workouts and walking ALL WEEK* (I’m beginning a new phase of fitness where I walk everyday, strength train every day, and now want to incorporate running possibly, too, everyday. Am I nuts?)√√√√√

*Will weigh tomorrow for the Wednesday Weigh-in with the Shrinking Jeans ladies. Last week I had a big fat goose-egg of no change. I can’t believe how hard it is to lose the last ten pounds, wow! I really had no idea it would be this hard…

Today’s motivation – Prepare for Earth Day this year, and decide what it is you’re going to change to go greener. I’m going to start treating Earth Day like New Years, and make a resolution of some sort, an eco-friendly one, to keep until next year’s Earth Day (and hopefully forever). What do you think?

Last weeks goal: Plant and clean up the garden area. 95% done, woohoo!
This weeks goal: Finish it!

Would you like to join us this week for To-Do Tuesday? Start with just a few things. Don’t over-do it your first couple of times. You’ll grow to become a list-a-holic later, start small now, though, k?
Just so you know, you can join us at anytime, it doesn’t have to be on Tuesdays – the list will go up every Tuesday for you to link to, but you can make your list and link to us at any point in the week!

Remember, with “To-Do Tuesday“, we’re attacking our to-do lists each week, blogging about our lists and what we’ve got going on, and sharing it with each other to help keep each other accountable. Everyone should come back here to link up in the MckLinky as the central “To-Do Tuesday Hub” so we can visit who’s participating and offer encouragement to each other throughout the week. Don’t forget to add the “To-Do Tuesday” button to your post, linking back to this post!

Let’s continue to cross items off our list as we go and help support each other in completing our lists! Don’t forget my useful HTML tutorial on how to effectively “cross-out” or √ “check off” your items on your to-do list!
