To Do list

Okay, I'll admit it.... I still haven't done my taxes. I am a big time procrastinator. This winter, I have let myself and my house get lazy, frumpy and chubby. Therefore!... In this dawn of Spring, and with the 35th birthday looming, I have decided to make my "to do" list public. Hopefully, this technique will inspire me to actually get some of this stuff done!!!

This list is just for April, (and it doesn't include my birthday resolution to exercise a little bit more and eat a little bit healthier everyday). Feel free to nag me. I'll be posting pictures of some of the before and after house projects that I accomplish. And you will all be invited to the yard sale (date to be determined)... if there's anything really good for sale, I'll post it here "Flea Market Friday" style before it goes out the door. And best of all, I'll be doing a cool giveaway for my 100th post/35th birthday on April 24th! Woohoo!!!



So what's on your Springtime "to do" lists? How do you organize your time to get it all done??? If you have tips please share them in the comments field :-)

I know exactly what you mean! I was just thinking this morning of posting pics of my closets to shame myself into cleaning them! I think I am going to have to eliminate some crafting for a couple of days to get mine done! That is why I haven't done it yet!

My list is so much longer LOL but we have a bit of painting to do in the house as soon as it's warm enough to open the windows. I could also do with a good spring cleaning expecially in the office and the craft room!

I just celebrated my 35th! It's not that bad, Eh.

Good Luck with your to do list! Right now, I'm trying really hard to start my business and I'm learning a lot about stuff I never so much as thought about before. So I guess that's my list.

Victorian Lady said...

this is my neverending battle- my flaw is that i go overboard on what i want to do that i overwhelm myself. sorry i can't be of more help... have to do my taxes still too!

Jenn said...

Love the new header Jenny! I make lists all the time. Unfortunately I also ignore lists all the time! tee hee! I am the world's greatest procrastinator!

Marie said...

PS> I do my BEST work under pressure. At least that's my story! (and I'm sticking to it!)

I have to write a weekly list if I seem to be failing on my things to do.. Glad your on the bandwagon with the eating better!!

My advice, marry an engineer!! I would be a wreck (as far as lists go) if I didn't have my husband. He is a task master! I, on the other hand, start many projects at the same time, I'm distracted easily! I think making the list is half the battle, good luck!!!

Love your to do list. I am also having so much trouble staying on task these days. It much more fun to play than to do other things.

Good luck with that list, you're a brave woman posting it! I have lots of painting to do around the house and am thinking of posting a picture of a rug I've started for my youngest, it'll make me feel guilty every time I look at my blog and hopefully make me feel like finishing it!

Wow! You are ambitious! I better get back to those taxes now...you have inspired me. ;-)

no tips from me! I'm lucky I ever accomplish anything! I get a bit overwhelmed with all the stuff I have to do.. I call it the "gottas" and it causes me to go a bit crazy I think. While I'm doing one thing, all I can think about is what I "gotta" do next and all the other things that I gotta do after that! SO I just keep plugging along and along and along!
