Well, it was back to reality today...Spring Break is officially over. To top it off, I had NO voice today, and feeling pretty run down, but my kids were wonderful today, and I was so happy to see them!
Since I worked so hard on my Spring Break TO DO list, I feel the need to brag about all the things I actually did get done. I honestly was not expecting to do everything on the list, I was just trying to be optimistic, in case I got bored or something (HA!)....but I'm proud to say I at least visiting every point on my list! Here's what I did on my spring break:
1. Lock myself in my room and plan the rest of my preschool year
This is the one thing that I probably should have spent the most time on, but sadly did not. I did do a little planning, but I hit a road block when my ink cartridge went out and I couldn't afford to replace it. I am getting a new one Wednesday (pay day), so I should be able to print all the things I need and get back to it.
2. Clean out the laundry room
One of the first things I finished! I can walk in my laundry room again! WOO. It's so nice, and it's amazing the space I have when it's clean and organized! Next up, I'm putting a door up to the laundry room, cause let's face it - it's still an eye sore in the basement, even if it is clean!
3. Clean/organize Scrapbook room
I started this task, then stopped. I decided I don't want to put away all my organized-into-categories scrapbook stuff yet, because I might have another Scrap Swap soon. I'm ok to put this project off til Summer, since I won't be scrapbooking til then anyway!
4. Put up shelves in back room
The hubs wouldn't let me do this just YET....because he wants to wire a light back there first. I did, however, get him to clean out the space and make it ready for this task, which is a huge bonus!
5. Re-organize basement shelves
Yep, re-organized most of them. They kind of re-organized themselves as I was sorting things for a Mom2Mom sale.
6. Sort baby clothes & toys for Mom2Mom Sale
Yes! This proved to be an emotional task! Now I just need to sell it all and get it out of my house!
7. Schedule a Mom2Mom Sale
Got online and checked all the dates. Unfortunately, I'm out of town A LOT of weekends over the next 2 months leading worship. So....I have to wait til some more are posted close to home.
8. Clean room. Really clean.
I even got the hubs to put away his laundry...and bought new sheets since ours were falling apart! Looks good!
9. Catch up on laundry
I was pretty diligent about this all week. I'm happy to say it might be the first time nearly everything article of clothing and every towel and sheet in my house is washed! =]
10. Build Caleb's bed
This was one of the first things I tried to do...and one I was the most excited to do. Unfortunately, we took the plans to Home Depot and discovered the cost was going to be more than we expected. It's still doable, but we decided to wait. I checked online and actually found the bed that matches his furniture set for almost the same price....so, I don't know yet what we'll end up doing!
11. Re-finish table and chairs
I spent one whole afternoon sanding and painting my dining room table and chairs....and they turned out FANTASTIC! I'm having problems uploading photos on my computer right now, but I am so anxious to show you how they turned out!!!
12. Clean up stuff for Craig's List
Posted another item of Craig's list and re-tuned some things already on there. Check.
13. Clean up front and back yard
Not only did I do that, but I also cleaned out and re-organized our shed! 14 bags of leaves later, our yard looks the best it ever has since we moved here!
14. Get some sleep
I actually took less naps than normal, but slept til almost 9 every day...which is 3+ more than I usually get! I felt well rested until today! HA
I feel really good about everything I got done last week. It felt so good to be productive. On top of my TO DO list, I managed to keep the house clean, keep up with dishes, entertain guests a few nights, clean the kids' rooms, and help a friend do a basement make-over for another friend! PHEW!
