It’s time for another Follow Through Friday! While I certainly have an abundant supply of to-do list items which need my attention, I’m going to keep my list simple this week. This has been a short week, is it already Friday? Yet, it has felt like a very, long week. Anyone else out there struggling to get back to their routine? Maybe I should say is anyone else struggling to just get stuff done? I feel like I am having the hardest time getting things accomplished this week. I’m determined to get the 3 items from today’s Follow Through Friday list completed though. Here are the little nagging tasks that I am going to complete today:
Make the Information page for the Follow Through Friday link up. This has been on the to-do list without actually happening too many weeks in a row. Just in case any new readers ever stumble across a Follow Through Friday post, I think they might need a place find some information about what we do during Follow Through Fridays. Maybe that would entice them to join in the fun!
Bake banana bread and other items that might take milk. I’ve been drinking almond milk and my boys and husband don’t really drink milk so I’m not sure why I bought a carton of regular milk (maybe for a recipe I didn’t make?) but I don’t want to waste it so it is time to do a little baking! I also have quite a few bananas in the freezer just waiting for a purpose.
Make a “When Mom is at Work” book for the boys. So far, I haven’t been working that much and they have their phone numbers but I’d like them to have a bit more structure and easy to reference guidelines for those times when they are home alone after school. This is probably something I’m doing more for my own peace of mind than for their benefit but you never know. My plan is to include the phone numbers in another place (2 sets can’t hurt), rules about answering the phone and door, chores they could complete (ha!), snack suggestions/recipes, and things like that. Any other suggestions for me?
This is sort of modified fun list for me because I’ll actually enjoy doing all these things a bit with the exception of washing the dishes after the baking. All the standard to-do list items that I’ve missed this week are also on my list. I very much need to do that whole house 15 minutes in every room clean up as well as try to get caught up with the never-ending mountain of laundry. What are your plans for this Follow Through Friday?
