It is time for the return of Follow Through Friday! I have to start checking items off my never-ending to-do list. Now that Christmas is almost upon us, I seem to be adding more items the list than I’ve been subtracting from it. It makes for a rather unbalanced list. Does anyone else out there need a day to focus on getting some of their tasks done?
Yesterday, I spent part of my morning cleaning the house Flylady style 15 minutes at a time but to add an element of fun to my otherwise rather boring task, I added a 15 minutes of Christmas-related tasks into the rotation. So, in that spirit, I’m going to add a 4th Christmas-related item to my regular 3 Follow Through Friday tasks.
Here is my Follow Through Friday list for today:
- Spend 15 minutes (at least) in each room of the house gathering items for the charity pick up truck that is coming tomorrow.
- Go to the Dollar Tree and get a document frame. The sad thing about this list item is that I was just in the store on Wednesday and completely forgot to pick up the one thing I entered the store to get in the first place. I’m not looking forward to the return trip since the store was super busy on Wednesday so I already know the craziness I’m going to encounter for a second time.
- Clean off the computer desk. I think this is a permanent item on my list.
- My Christmas related item: Clean out and condense our Christmas bins. I started on this yesterday but didn’t get very far. I’m hoping to add some of our Christmas things to the charity collection items but I struggle with giving away holiday decor even if we don’t have anywhere to display it.
Other random tasks I’m hoping to finish today include getting a few birthday cards purchased and maybe Christmas cards as well (I haven’t lost hope that this might be the Christmas that I actually send the cards!), making a Christmas shopping list (I have a rough draft but I need to finalize it), and just for fun….actually finishing the laundry!
What do you plan to finish today? Let us know in the comments!
