ahhhh…it feel so good to GET THINGS DONE!
I REALLY hope that having this link party each week will continue to motivate me! I wrote a master “wanna get done” list 5 days ago, and IT IS ACTUALLY WORKING, I’m getting things done!! It is because I know I will have to write a post every week about what I have done, so thanks to you readers, I will no longer procrastinate.
~pay $2.10 to school for forgotten school lunch
ok, I know this sounds like a really easy one, and it was, but can you believe it took me over 2 months to “just do it”?? I didn’t use my personal goal of “when I think about it, just do it.” Thanks to tomorrow’s party, I did get it done. It took me all of 63 seconds to put some money in an envelope, mark it, and stick it in my daughters backpack for her to take to school.
~clean out trunk
My husband did this, sort of. Our car had a flat tire last week, so before he took it into the shop, he brought all the junk from the trunk into our sunroom. There was already a pile of stuff sitting there to be taken to goodwill, so our sunroom looked horrendous. That was enough to get me to deal with it and put it all away.
~stuff to Goodwill
I’ve have had a pile of bags and a bin in my sunroom since Christmas. No joke. That stuff stared at me every time I left and every time I came back into my home. Our sunroom is the first impression that guests have of our home, and they have been greeted by a pile of stuff for 3 months now! The kicker…there is a Goodwill just blocks from our house-it took me less than 5 minutes to load it, drop it off, unload it and drive home. Why do I put this stuff off??
~ants in basement
Easy fix. I bought poison. I rarely do this, I hate pesticides! There are little discs you can buy that the ants will crawl in, get the “food,” take it back home, share it with their friends, and after their feast they all die.:( I needed to just do something, especially since I don’t know if these are carpenter ants we are dealing with! Next time, I am going to try my homemade laundry detergent. Seriously! I got a tip from a reader that sprinkling it around wards off pests, and since the ants were in the laundry room, it seems fitting?!?
~make homemade laundry detergent
Did it. I have a how- to post coming in the very near future!
~boogie study closet
“Boogie” is a term stolen from Flylady. It just means to move as quickly as you can and get it done, taking a quick break if needed, then right back into it. It was just a few months ago I did a whole study clean up, so it was a quick boogie and now it is back to being organized again!
~yearly physical appointment made
Done! I put the number into my online contacts so next time I have no excuse to procrastinate!
~organize papers in sorters on desk
This was the most helpful of all the “To-Do’s” that I did! I keep papers that need attention in these, so a week or so of no attention can really get me in trouble! Having this done made me feel so on top of things, I literally felt lighter when I was done. Guess I need to keep that one up every week, I may live longer..
~create Amazon store for the blog
I have wanted to do this for awhile. There are many times I talk about a product or ingredient, and a reader will ask where I got it or what I use. Now I can just put the product in my Amazon store. I can link up things I love and use, in case you would like to purchase them, too. The blessing of it is, if you purchase through my link, I will get a small percentage (this does not cost you any more) from Amazon, which in time might add up. I would love to be able to contribute financially to our family’s budget through this little love of mine called blog. You will be able to access the store in a week or two, I need to continue to add products I love to it..
This is an online application that allows virtual, post- it- type notes on a computer desktop. I use it all the time to quickly type a thought or copy a link. The problem, they over took my desktop because I didn’t delete them! They are now organized, problem solved.
Not bad for 5 days! It barely made a dent in my list, but I’m not stressing. Baby steps.
I hope to see you all on tuesdays where we can chip away on our to-do’s together! Next time I may just highlight one thing and write about it, we’ll see. Come on by tomorrow! If you are a blogger, link up, if you are a reader, come check it out and feel free to leave a comment, I’d love to hear what you have been getting done or want to get done!
Thank YOU, my readers. Without you, I would be getting nothing done!:)
