15 things to accomplish this summer

I am a list girl.  I keep a running grocery list on the side of my refrigerator all the time.  I always have a to do list attached to the front of my calendar and by the way I still use a paper 8.5 x 11 calendar instead of my phone, there is something about seeing it on paper that I prefer over the calendar in my phone, plus I color coordinator the kids activities.  I know a little OCD. Ha!!

Back to my lists, at any given time you can ask me and I probably have some kind of list on me.  I love to mark things off that I have done, it gives me such a sense of accomplishment. :)

Usually, our schedules are a little lower key during the summer months so I try to use this time to do a few things around the house or as you read the list I am trying to set some goals to get a few things accomplished and usually if i set a a deadline for myself it helps to motivate me a little more.

Here goes......

  1. redo my pantry
  2. finish our backyard makeover
  3. finish my 2011 scrapbook
  4. get current on my 2012 scrapbook
  5. get back on the Dave Ramsey program (still doing it, just been lazy with the budgeting, Ha!)
  6. finish paying off my medical bills from my surgery in March
  7. list and sell some extra creative memories items on ebay
  8. paint front porch posts 7/29/12
  9. paint the back door
  10. find Jonah a car.....can't believe he's old enough to need one :(  6/12/12
  11. Holiday World 6/19/12
  12. frame family picture for living room 8/8/12
  13. new pillows for kids beds 7/28/12
  14. have a yard sale, YUCK!!!! (I would rather have by teeth pulled) 7/28/12
  15. clean out my closet prior to #14 7/19/12
There's my list!!! 

Maybe I need to set an actually date, you know just saying summer, that's kinda vague.  Summer truly is not over until the end of September, we have company coming at the end of July, the kids start school the second week of August and I turn 3_ the last week of August.  So let's say my deadline is AUGUST 31st.  Whew!!!!  

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you...
Ephesians 1:18
Blessings to all~
