For my Follow Through Friday, I plan on trying to catch up on…well, everything. I knew this week was going to be busy. I even prepared for it (somewhat). However, I still have plenty of places where I simply fell behind.
The thing about having a busy week is no matter how well I prepare, the week is still busy! The reality is that busy weeks mean falling behind in a few areas. That translates into catching up on things once things slow down a bit. Of course, being busy also means that when things slow down I really don’t feel like doing a bunch of things. I’m just going to pick 3 easy tasks that I’ve shoved aside all week:
Catch up on replying to my blog comments. If you’ve commented on here, I’ve read it! I just have had limited time to sit down and properly respond to things. Sometimes after a long day, all my brain can handle is to crush a few candies. I also have lots of blogs I enjoy reading and haven’t had a chance to visit this week.
Catch up on cleaning the house. Surprisingly, it is not that bad. However, the bathrooms are icky and those floors I was going to mop last week might still need that this week. I started today with a 15 minute cleaning in each room but only managed to get the kitchen and living room cleared of clutter before deciding other projects would be a bit more fun. I did throw down some grass seed on most of our muddy areas outside. Then, the neighbor walked by and shared that the weather forecast was calling for snow on Monday.
Catch up on clearing away all the excess papers floating around the house. I am starting to feel overwhelmed with all the papers that have piled up back here on the desk and the printer. I’m fairly certain that quite a few of them could simply be sent to the recycle bin like the school fundraiser forms that I forgot, one from each kid.
I also need to grocery shop, clothes shop, and catch up on some laundry (although my husband did quite a bit of that for us on Tuesday!). What tasks have you pushed aside this week? Follow Through Friday would be a great day to revisit them and get a few things done!
