Let’s Get Organized for the Weekend

Happy Friday to you! I hope you had a fantastic week. I woke up this morning all ready to write my Finish It Friday post…and then went on and did other things on my to-do list! A few minutes ago I gasped and said “It’s Friday! It's Finish It Friday! Oh no!” So…here is the post—and my to-do list—a bit later than intended. Sorry about that! 


  • Spend time with my family. It seems like we have been running around like crazy this summer. Some nights I go to bed and literally have to remind myself who is home and how is away! But this weekend we will all be together – hooray! So I’m going to keep the to-do list very light and enjoy this. Summer is flying by. Time to slow down just a bit. 



  • Laundry.
  • Plan weekly meals.
  • Organize some papers in my office. And end the week with a nice, clean slate. 


As I said, I'm keeping my list simple this weekend. How about you? What’s on your to-do list this weekend? Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a great one!

Been recovering from surgery that took place just over a week ago. Can't do much right now due to low strength. Today I haven't been super motivated so it has been a lazy day for me and the fur kids while husband is at work.

I have been updating my blog check it out here:

Have been pondering goals to work on and put them into bite size pieces. Thinking of writing them down.

Any suggestions on how any of you work on your goals?

OK, it's Sunday, but since I plan to spend a big party of today cleaning, I will play along starting now.

Fun: Last night I took my mom to see Mamma Mia. It was awesome! Tonight we are taking my MIL out for her birthday. And just maybe the boy and I will go to the pool today.

To Do: Clean off the dining room table. This MUST happen once and for all. It is an eyesore.

To do #2: Maybe, just maybe do something about the toys in the living room. My last attemp failed. I am SO overwhelemed. But maybe if I just jump right in, something can be done about this disaster.

And since I think the Twitterverse is interested in my cleaning project, I plan to tweet my progress.
