YAWN. Excuse me. Who else is dragging a bit today after an exciting night of trick or treating? I didn’t even walk around with the boys but there was much hustle and bustle before and after going. G had more homework than he shared so after we arrived home, he was up late working on it (and up early to finish it). We let J stay up later than normal to watch Nova (which lost me somewhere along the discussion of the Kelvin temperature scale but he was interested and enjoying it) last night as well. Imagining my grumpy kids times 20 has me feeling sympathy for teachers everywhere today. Despite being tired and using massive quantities of discipline to avoid overflowing candy bags, I’m still going to devote some energy to finishing a few nagging tasks today. Would you like to join me? I won’t even tell if you sneak a Snickers from your kids’ candy stash while you work! Here are my 3 tasks for the first Follow Through Friday of November:
Clear out the phone answering machine messages. I don’t think any of these 11 messages are important but I am no longer sure. We really need to get in a better habit of pushing the “delete” button after we listen to these things.
Maybe I’ll get super ambitious and try to figure out how to remove the phone messages from my cell phone along with deleting some old text messages as well.
Write the first post for my November clear out a drawer a day challenge and hit the publish button. On a side note, I still have a couple of posts for the whole colossal failure of my first 31 Days Series attempt that I want to finish editing and get posted. So my plan is to continue with the series even though I missed the whole concept of doing it for 31 days in a row.
Change the sheets on the boys’ beds. Somehow I’ve woke up every morning this week and thought I needed to do this but managed to go to bed every night realizing that it didn’t happen.
I noticed 2 days ago that G doesn’t even have a pillowcase on his pillow. I’d really like to get out and get some nice flannel sheets for their beds but doubt that will happen today. Clean sheets and bedding is a big enough goal for today, I think.
