Weekend To-Do

Not sure if I am going to keep up my GBU....sort of bored with it. Maybe I need to move it to another day, or change the format.

Heck, all sorts of things need a new format. But it is Labor Day weekend....and I need to LABOR away in my house. My poor husband is racking his brain about "what today is" because it is a stupid game we play. The correct answer is "the first day that I start putting out my fall stuff." He isn't going to get it. But before I can start dragging stuff down from the attic....I need to CLEAN.

(In the time it took me to write this post...G-man figured it out.  Go G-man!)

For dresser/buffet thingy in my office/playroom (I am officially calling it the office from now on)....usually has a whole vignette on it. Right now it is covered in stuff. So stuff has to go.

Between today (Sunday) and tomorrow (Monday), here is my to do list, in no particular order:
  1. Laundry - three loads of clothes, towels, and linens; Last load of clothes in the wash, but the washer coded and it needs to reset.
  2. Take out all the misc. trash
  3. Change the linens on the beds
  4. Make banana bread
  5. Make Chicken Chili Burritos for freezer 
  6. Clean desk 
  7. Clean buffet - I am calling it clean.  There are a few bottles that I am using as part of decor still there.
  8. Find homes for stuff in 2 boxes
  9. Balance checkbook and pay bills
  10. Work on budget (due to some upcoming changes)
  11. Review resume before submitting for a few jobs
  12. Clean cat box
  13. Hang outdoor wreath (which I think needs a makeover, but can't start that right now)
  14. Box up gift to mail to C on Tuesday
  15. Update calendar
  16. Hang valence in Sassy's room
  17. Put away "stuff" in hallway
  18. Wash living room curtains
  19. All the usual kitchen things....dishes, counters, sweep
  20. Spend 1 hr in alcove "mess" - 30 minute done!
  21. Read/Edit 5 reports - 3 reports done....2 to go!
  22. Vacuum and wipe down inside of car - car cleaned out due to rain, no wiping or vacuum
  23. Clean fish tank
  24. Pack up clothes for Goodwill
  25. List stuff on Craigslist/Freecycle
  26. PTA loose ends - I think I am OFFICIALLY done with my stint on the board!
  27. Finish spring project before putting it away for the fall stuff!
  28. Take 30 minutes to re-do my toes (c'mon....I had to find something for ME!!!)

ETA, 6pm Sunday - there has been more progress than it seems.  Stuff like #6 and #7 are works in progress.  And I added a few things over the course of the day.  I just can't help myself!

ETA, 10:15am Monday - 13/18 completed!  Several more in process.  Not sure I am going to get it ALL done.....
I am being ambitious.....but do I win a prize if I get through it all????  I suppose I better get hopping if I have any hope of completing this!!!

Happy Sunday and Long Weekend to those of us in the US.


  1. Good luck with your list. I start fall decorating in September too. It is my favourite season.

    It is a long weekend here in Canada as well.

  2. I feel like this is one of my lists! Yikes. I am going to take a nap!

  3. good on you!! You are making wonderful progress! Have a great weekend!

  4. I have not been very productive with my lists this weekend. After cutting the grass yesterday I was just about worn out --- it was SO hot and humid!
