The Get It Done List

Awhile back, I declared this "The Summer of Getting Things Done." I have quite the list of to do's and in progress projects. The idea is to use some of my free time this summer to finish some projects and cross some items off of my list. Luckily, with a lighter work schedule, less to watch on TV and no desire to go out into 110 degree heat, I actually have more time to devout to projects for the next couple months. Now I just need to actually use that extra time to "get things done."

I've decided I should create a master list. Now, there's a pretty good chance I'm not getting all of this done this summer. In fact, I can pretty much guaruntee there will still be plenty of things on this list come September. I will do my best. Here's the list so far:

Taxes 08--only mileage left to do
Get up to date with Taxes 09 spreadsheets--done :)
File/Re-Organize household and business paperwork--in progress
Get up to date with SRG Paperwork
Purge MT bookshelf and supply files
Purge closets and donate--just need to donate
Paint bathroom baseboards
Hang new bathroom hooks
Assemble and hang shelf in blue bathroom
Touch up paint in blue bathroom
Sand and paint hallway
Sand and paint wall outside of kitchen
Patio furniture
Clean up back patio
Deal with boxes from storage
Read and purge magazine stash
Organize magazine tear outs
Organize loose recipes
Back up photos and work files
Print photos once a month--done so far
Week in the Life album--done
Hawaii album--in progress
England album--in progress
Wedding album--in progress
Finish knit tunic--about halfway done
Add a foot or two to knit blanket
Pay it Forward gifts
Use up a couple kits
Attempt a sewing project

I'm sure there's more, but that's quite a list already. There are also things I have on Shawn's list...like tear out carpet, clean and organize piles, get rid of stuff.....hopefully I can help him along with some of those things too. The idea is to get things to a point where we can hopefully do more work on the house in the fall. That's the plan anyway. I've always got big plans....

Wish me luck and stay tuned for updates!

Good luck with your list my darling!! I didn't see 'buy Jessie a present' on that list. Maybe you need a new list... :)

You go girl! I'm going to play along and make a similar list. Although, I think I might make this the "year of getting things done" since I need to stay occupied...

Keep me posted on the progress!

Goodluck with your long list. You can do it, you can do it! Woot!

Did "she" really leave that comment? Does she not realize that "if" it were to make your list it would be "buy/make something for Baby Ella"? It's so not about her anymore ;).

Good Luck on your list. I love a good list and the satisfaction of checking thing off. I hope you make some of these into smaller goals so you can check off your progress getting to the bigger goal.

Happy Week!
