Crazy Adventures in Parenting To-Do Tuesday

I have been working hard to maintain my clean house, but haven’t been getting too much checked off my list this past week. We had a slamming soccer schedule and extra events, OH, and BABY DUDE WALKING, eeeeeeek! Suddenly I turn around and it’s Monday? Wow, where’d the week go, crap, where’d my list go? {pouty face}

I will do better this week, I have to get most of these things done, considering their Halloween-related 😉

Have you started your Christmas Notebook yet? This is the last week of October (can you believe it?) It’s coming (said in eery, Poltergeist-type voice) My Christmas preparations are carried over from last week because I was busy doing other things and didn’t get the chance. I’m also adding one.

  • Go through what gifts I’ve already bought, and jot them down.
  • While I’m out shopping for last minute Halloween preparations, start layaway for bigger items at PX
  • Pick up a couple second-hand items found for sale

For my regular To Do list this week:

Continue to finish cleaning out the shed and back yard (The leaf blower is my friend).
Put throw-away items to curb by Trash day Thursday.
Take picture of items for yard sale, to sell early (I hope?)
To yard sale or not to yard sale on Saturday (Halloween)… Hmm…
Grocery shopping/coupons/list
Post a giveaway this week? 🙂
Reviews for new Shark cleaners to be published
Soccer banquets and pictures
Finish buying/making Halloween costumes

Staying on my diet every day*
Work out every day*

*Finally hit the 130s since before I began having babies. Whoa! 139 as of last week. I cannot believe it!

Today’s motivation – take care of yourself. Ensure you’re drinking enough water. Eat well, and often (6 small meals instead of 3 big ones helps bolster your metabolism). Get moving every day, whether it’s a walk, dancing, working out, be sure to have some activity in there. But take vitamins, and pump in some Vitamin C, Zinc, and echinacea to try to keep yourself well. I’m fighting with the sniffles right now (although I haven’t completely ruled out allergies, with all the cleaning out I’ve done), but I shall prevail because of my arsenal. (Positive thinking helps, too). How about you? What do you use?

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!
