Monday Check In!

Here’s the place to share your updates from the past weekend! Hope you had a great one! Here’s my update. 


Play List

  • Go to Dewey’s. Dewey’s did not disappoint. Jay and I had a great time, and the food was delicious! We’ll definitely be going back…a lot. :)
  • Basketball, basketball, basketball. That really should have read basketball, basketball, basketball, basketball, basketball, basketball. That’s right, six games this weekend my friends. So check, check, check, check, check, check! ;)
  • Run. Check!  
  • Organize with my friend Janine. Check! It was so fun…and we made great progress on my office closet.  


To Finish

  • Laundry. Check! The hampers are empty once again. Hooray!
  • Finish organizing my office closet. Almost a check on this one. I have a few little things to finish up…but I’m getting there. 

So there’s my update! Can’t wait to hear yours… 


Have a happy Monday!

Here's my update for the weekend. I didn't accomplish 100% of my list, but did pretty well.

*Watch local high school soccer games with family - CHECK!
*Family movie/pizza night - CHECK!
*Creative time (we'll see where this goes...hopefully I'll get some time to work on Project Life) - CHECK!
*Take a walk - nope. I did not feel well on Friday & was really busy on Saturday, so this just did NOT happen.

*Prepare for Bible class - CHECK!
*Prepare for 4H meeting - CHECK!
*Lesson plans - CHECK!
*Make progress on financial/bookkeeping work - CHECK (baby steps, right?)!
*Make progress on taxes - no

*Finish laundry - CHECK!

In addition, I decluttered a bookcase in our living room where stuff had accumulated while I purged an old computer. It looks SO much better now!

hello all ~ catching up with myself after a couple of weeks of yet more illness in the house. tougher this time as hubby has been away, so 24hr solo parenting has been a challenge.

well done everyone on so many great to do lists checked off. Aby great to hear you had fun organising with Janine. Dottie how cool your hubby helped out. Kerri hope you enjoy the coming quiet time. Lycia looks like you got a lot done.

Sadly I didn't get a chance to take part in the last finish it friday :( but I did manage to get my very very short to do list done ~
1. hubby home briefly so sleep in on Saturday after 4 nights of little sleep ~ check
2. buy new kettle on/off switch just broke ~ check
3. unpack organic vegetable and fruit box and figure out how to use it ~ check
fun stuff
1. lunch at favourite thai restaurant ~ check

Going to miss the FIF posts. Have been using them as entries in my Project Life album, so will be thinking about how to keep the list going. Thanks Aby for getting me back in the habit ~ enjoy the basketball season.
