Hello fellow list-makers! Did you see this post? You should read it if you really enjoy making these to do lists. Excellent program!
This week is gonna be a big preparation week for “the trip” – D-to-the-I-S-N-E-Y! Shhhh don’t tell my kids, we’re surprising them!
(I’m kind-of behind, so if I’m a little scarce, you’ll know why!)
In the meantime, I’m still trying to come up with what I’m going to do for next week while I’m “gone” – a giveaway a day? Guest writers? Reprints of oldies but goodies? What do you think? Weigh in with your thoughts in the comments below.
Only one holiday preparation this week, since I can’t really “shop” or “organize” while away:
- Scouting Black Friday deals to somehow sneak in a quick shopping trip while on vacation with sister-in-law, maybe? 🙂
For my regular, ol’ To Do list this week:
Packing list and pack. A lot.
Laundry. A lot.
Try not to stress about the trip
Try really really hard not to stress about the trip
Blog about money-saving preparations for our trip
Print directions and coupons
Staying on my diet every day* (Or try, vacations are rough, man)
Work out 4 times this week* (Or try, as previously mentioned, vacations, especially long car rides, are particularly rough.)
*Will weigh myself Wednesday morning. (Here’s hoping I maintain well while away for a week!)
Today’s motivation – love. Say it. Feel it. Show it. Embrace it. Don’t just say “you too,” say it this week, and mean it every time you do. Say it spontaneously. Grab your spouse, your child, your baby, your pet, and hug ’em and say it. Show it through gestures, through acts, through letters or embraces. Thanksgiving is coming, what a wonderful, almost secret way to remind you of all the reasons you should be thankful.
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!
