What Am I Doing Anyway?

I’ve been so negligent about my blog this summer. Sigh. Our plan is to start school on Monday so maybe life will start feeling more structured.

In the meantime, this is what I still really want to get done before Monday. Some of it I have to.

  • Can and Freeze 180 lbs of peaches (They’re sitting in the garage, so that’s a must.)
  • Wash all of the windows inside and out.
  • Get caught up on the bookkeeping for my husband’s business (Working on that right now.)
  • Type up my school plans that are only sketched on paper right now.
  • Empty my ironing and mending baskets.
  • Oh yea, make 15 meals and clean up the kitchen and do half a dozen loads of laundry and vaccuum and mop and…

Wish me well!! (I do have help on the window washing and the canning. My teenage sister is going to help me out on those.)

But I’m quite happy about what I have accomplished this summer in the way of things around the house.

  • Got my husband’s bookkeeping all caught up–oh that was a few weeks ago.
  • Totally reorganized the school area. It feels so clean now.
  • Moved two children into different rooms and redecorated both rooms.
  • Cleaned out all but two drawers in my whole house and all cabinets.
  • Took two trips with boxes of stuff to Goodwill!!
  • Reorganized the pantry (which is a full size room in my house.)
  • Oh yeah, did some laundry, lots of laundry, and cooked a few meals, I’m not even going to calculate that.

I always look at my list of accomplishment and wonder why I get so little done. I used to be such a productive person. Sometimes now I feel so unproductive. I don’t know if I’ll make it, but I’m giving it my best shot!

So long, until next week!

    I just wrote a post but don't think it posted~ hope this isn't a repeat :)

    Just thought I'd see how your to-do list went and let you know it sounds like you got a huge amount of things done! It always feels so good to get things organized and cleaned out.

    How is school going so far?


    Time Well Spent

    I hope you got the peaches done by now :) We just got our – but just two boxes (I think that's 40 lbs?) and I freeze 'em.

    You forgot to mention all the traveling you did over the summer – and we all know preparing for and unpacking and laundry after getting back are a huge ordeal. That's all part of the cost of the experience.

    I hope you'll share your plans. I'm wondering how to keep the six year old interested in being read to. It was only the first week. The first three days she was very interested, but less so by the end of the week. I'm tracking my days by numbers this year, so if we have a nice day we may take off. Enjoy the remnants of your (Indian) summer.
