To Do List

My sister, Heather, wanted to see what my daily To Do list was like. In fact, just to entice me to share, she posted hers too. But, before I post my list, I need to explain how it works. I pretty much post everything on my list. All my daily household chores, any errands I need to run, what I'm making for dinner, reminders for everyday things that I might forget to do in the rush of life, things I want to bake, major cleaning jobs, etc. Sometimes I will even write something on my list after I have done it, just so I can cross it off. Some things get crossed off right away, some will stay on my fridge for several days until I get to them, and some stay on so long that I eventually just erase them. I write my list on my fridge, so that I am forced to look at it all day long. I'm very good at ignoring things and not feeling guilty for it, so seeing it all day is more of a helpful reminder than a guilt-inducer. I'm actually hoping to expand the process a little; I want to change the way I list my major cleaning jobs. But I will write more about that later. So, without further ado, here is my list:

  • Dishes (this is one of those things that gets crossed off and then rewritten everyday)
  • Laundry (I like to do all my laundry in one day, just because that is always how the loads seem to fill up)
    -Darks (in the washer)
    -Colors (in the dryer)

  • Bathrooms (deep clean our bathroom, surface clean the kids)
  • Breakfast (scrambled eggs with turkey, sauteed onions, and cheddar cheese)
  • SHORT NAP? (I have been trying to get up early every morning, and it is starting to catch up with me)
  • Dinner Chicken/Rice (15-minute Mexican Chicken & Rice Dinner)
  • Email Erin (I need to write my friend who I have completely ditched lately. I'm a horrible person :( )
  • SHOWER (yes, I remind myself to shower; otherwise, I will get busy with other stuff and forget about it)
  • Cheese crackers (a recipe from that I want to try)
  • Walk (30 minutes today, after I dropped the kids off)
  • Empty dishes (dishwasher and dish drainer)
  • Get eggs (from next door)
  • Get socks down (soccer socks from Sierra's box)
  • Kitchen floor

Well, guys, I think that's it. Now I've spend enough time writing about my To Do list. It's time to go work on it.
