Anti-Procrastination Tuesdays #7

I was getting worried that it would be another week where nothing got crossed off the Doozy list.  I checked out the list, and was pleasantly surprised that I would be able to cross off a couple, and I’m in the process of finishing a few more!
Here is what I got done:
~Discuss Allowance With Todd
I am excited to share with you what we came up with in a future post. We went out on a date Saturday night and spent our whole dinner coming up with a plan.  In a nutshell, our children will be able to earn allowance through good behavior, and completed chores/ routines.  Our plans include little jars that they will fill with rocks which they will have to earn, and each filled jar will receive payment.  The plan will start in the month of May, so that is when you can expect a more detailed post on our system.
~Sort My Clothes
This included cleaning my closet, and I am SO bummed I didn’t get pics for you.  It would have been a great before and after:)
~Read A Book A Month
Been visiting the library.  Right now I am reading “20 And Counting” by Michelle and Jim Bob Dugger.  I am just fascinated by how they are able to do life so well.  I have to admit, reading this book is convicting…it is AMAZING how they are able to turn every experience into a teaching lesson for their kids.  That would take such extreme patience! {sigh}
~Go Through Family Wardrobe.
I think we have too many clothes.  Now that winter clothes are packed away, I am getting rid of clothes that we don’t love or need.

Enough of me, on to You!  There were so many super creative projects linked up last week!  Below are some of my favorites.  I love the creative projects,  (keep ’em coming!), but I also love to hear and feature procrastination stories, or see lists of what you would like to get done.  Looking forward to seeing what you all have for me this week!!

    Hey Amy, good job on crossing out so many things on your list! I did not link up this week because my son’s family is in town and I am just busy having a great time with them. I hope to rejoin the party next week. 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by, Amy! I responded in my comments, but wanted to come over here to encourage you with your Spring Cleaning. You can do it! You’ll get there! I hope you can either get your vacuum cleaner repaired (or replaced?) soon, and in the meantime, good luck with borrowing one! 🙂
