Now that fall has arrived (though it doesn’t quite look like this yet), the kidorables are in school full day (sorry – can’t wipe the smile from my face for that!), and all the back-to-school hoopla – meetings, class coffees, PTA responsiblities, etc – have died down, it’s time to get to my list.
Heidi’s To-Do List:
1) Get in, look at, and clean out every closet.
Oh my goodness, have we accumulated stuff since we moved in 8 years ago. My goal is to spend 15-20 minutes every day on this. Just a little bit at a time.
And purge, purge, purge.
2) Tame the Toys!
Here’s the thing: my kidorables don’t even play with toys anymore. It’s sports at our house, 24/7. Pair holidays and birthdays with the fact that I was receiving several toys a week for a while to “test”, we have too many toys!
I need a good place to donate these – Goodwill no longer accepts plastic. Any ideas?
Also, be on alert for a mom-to-mom sale in my front yard soon!
Now just to convince the boys that they don’t really play with the toys any more…
3) Photo Books
About 3.5 years ago, I suddenly stopped making photo books. The grandparents had always received them for Christmas, the Running Man for Father’s Day, and then just the random book to document our lives.
Then abruptly, I just stopped.
Yesterday, I heard my younger adorable (who was only 1 when the books stopped), say to himself as he was rummaging through the books, “Nope, I’m not in that one. Nope, I’m not in that one. Nope, I’m not in that one.”
Until he got way down in the pile and found one that he was in.
(Kinda felt like a terrible mom right then…)
So I think I’ll start with one for him first, then the grandparents, then get back on the ball for The Running Man. I do, after all, have until June for him.
I really do like My Publisher the best for these books. Their software is pretty easy, the quality of the books is very high, and they always have sales to help with the price. My plan is to make the book and then hold off buying it until they advertise a really great sale. P.S. I don’t have any relationship with My Publisher, I just like them.
4) Get into a real regime for working out
I have no excuses now, so it’s time to get to it!
What’s on your list? What are you working on?
