I seem to have a LOT more time lately since I was released from working with the 12-18 year old girls at church. It means I have been getting a lot of long over due projects completed... For example, this week I made copies of some videos we had taken on DVD for people who were waiting for them, I put a DVD together that my mum has been waiting for, I was able to re-design a friends blog for her, I have scrapbooked both layouts and cards, I cleaned out the pantry, I worked with the fam to plant marigolds and bushes in our front yard, I have been working on improving a composition of a choir version of "High On A Mountain Top" that I have written, plus I cooked FIVE meals this week, (that's a lot for me!) I have also been trying hard to stay on top of the dishes and the laundry since hubby has been working his butt off with a couple of guys to get our basement finished.
I honestly do not remember the last time I got so many EXTRA things done in a week. (Remember, I also work full time for a computer software company, 6am-2pm daily, so I am nowhere near the Super-Mom many of you ladies are!) However, this week I have felt better. I have just kept a running list of things I wanted to do, (I call it "The Weekly Grind"), and crossed them off as I went a long. (Don't worry... there was plenty of time to have fun with the hubby & kids on top of the work.)
Here is my Weekly Grind list for this week so far!
- Go through the big box of paper I collected from around the house and sort/file/trash it!
- Clean out the refrigerators & freezers
- Spring clean me & hubby's bathroom
- Cook nice meals for my fam each day (except Friday... that's date night!)
- Launder our bedding
- Get my visiting teaching done
- Meet with the ladies who are singing for the next Relief Society Meeting
