How Was Your Weekend?

Happy Monday morning my friends. It’s time for the Monday morning check-in where we share our progress on our to-do lists over the weekend. I hope you had a happy and productive weekend! Ours was goood...but very full. Here’s my update on my Finish It Friday list:

To Finish:

  • Laundry. Check!
  • Start + finish cleaning the house. Check!
  • Spend 30 minutes on some paperwork that needs to be done. Check! (But there’s still more to-do. That’s going on my list for today.)
  • Update my master project list. Check! (And wow, I have a lot of projects I’d like to-do. Glad I’m bringing back Finish It Friday. ;) )

Other notable finshes:  found a new comforter for Kailea, potted some mums on the front porch, and put together a bag of donatons for the food pantry. Hooray!  

 

How did your weekend go? I can’t wait to hear! And thanks to all for your enthusiasm about the return of Finish It Friday. I plan to keep it going for a while…so tell your friends and invite them to join the fun. Have a happy Monday!

Hey Aby! I love Finish It Friday! I don't always post my lists, but it definitely gets me thinking about them. This weekend was actually good:

Play:
3 volleyball games for middle daughter - check (they WON the tourney!)
Shop with oldest daughter - check
Family dinner Sunday - check
To Do:
Clean out spice cabinet - check
Purchase replacement spices - check
Grocery - check
Replace lightbulbs in closet (hubby) - check
Replace lightswitch in bedroom (again, hubby) - check

Of course there are still lots of things "to do" but I feel really good about my organization in the kitchen. It's been an ongoing project that I have made a good dent in now. :)
