WIP Wednesday!

Hello Internet Friends! It is Wednesday and I wanted to challenge myself to get things done on my bucket list. Undoubtedly you're all leading busy and inspiring lives, but you know what, being this awesome is kind of exhausting. Especially when some dishes have been on the counter for weeks (I'm not joking). So in the spirit of "what I'm working on this week" I wanted to share with you an example of a task list I make myself once in a while when I know I have a few hours at home and a gazillion things to do. It's taking a few minutes in my day to prioritize how my evening is going to run. And then challenge myself to do it. I'll post the list today and then tomorrow will update this post to let you know how it went. PS. My days are usually this busy, but tonight I'm trying to tackle on the craft project of doing my curtains for our living room. We've been in our house for over a month and I haven't done anything yet to spruce it up. I even have to finish up the paint job. I have a laundry list of things I want to do and the curtains are the easiest. I already have the sheets and just need to get paint and hooky things to hold the sheets up (there's already a curtain rail).

What kind of things do you do to keep yourself "on track" and/or accountable to your ever mounting "to do list"?

 Edited to Add: So, I loaded the dishwasher and turned it on and washed a few other dishes, as well as did the towels and seth's clothes. Phew! The folding took forever because Seth was using me as a jungle gym. I did the jacks/squat workout and one round of abs, then a few push ups because I threw up in my mouth and didn't want to be that much of a baby. I also cast on Stewart's sweater and went and bought (the wrong) curtain rods, sponges, and paint for my curtains. Must go to Canadian Tire on Sunday to get the right parts.

  1. Iiiiiii make check mark boxes on my to do lists. My to do lists are almost always really lengthy, diverse, short and long term, and basically overwhelming. In fact, I pretty much suck at making achievable to do lists. BUT, I put check mark boxes on my to do lists. That way, when I'm looking at a partially completed one, I get a super awesome sense of achievement.
