How's everyone doing this week?

I think I got pretty much everything done on my list for this week. The only thing that was missed was mopping but that's okay. The family chipped in and helped out. I still need to work on a lot more homework but with family here that may not happen much. I also need to start studying more for my content exam.

Jess, it was one of those weeks were plans changed due to circumstances that I had no control over. Guess that is why it helps so much when we have a plan in place.

Things are getting done. I'm rethinking my routines for the next six months or so. New things have been added to the calendar in the last few weeks and I'm still adjusting. It also doesn't help that this is the second of three super busy weeks including weekends.

I am not getting anything done. I think it will be helpful for me to make myself accountable by using this thread. I am also looking at fly lady for inspiration. The upcoming week will be be good for getting things done and the next week I will be in MI. Ah, well.... Like Lucy I think it is getting time to start the deep cleaning. Thinking on where to focus first.

Jody, this thread certainly helps me with my week to week plans. It does keep me on track and accountable. It is also nice to talk with like minded people.

Is there any one room/area/thing that really annoys you? I find that helpful when I'm overwhelmed with where to start. FLYLady always talks about babysteps. I think there is a lot of wisdom to it. Breaking things down makes it doable and I find that I really do get something done...eventually...in some cases it just takes longer.

I had a bad week, got minimal things done as I was not home at all. Next week I will be playing catch up, but looking through the diary Friday will be the only day I have free. I really dislike weeks like this.

In front of my computer
I was doing Flylady baby stepping this week. A few room have made a lot of progress because all the little things all of a sudden grew together. Love Flylady.

I wasn't going to work in the Sunroom because I have files all over the place. The table is full, there are piles on the floor to shred. But Dh and LC1 wanted to move furniture so we did that. It looks much better even with the paper pile decorations.

I understand that feeling. Maybe you could make a top three list of things to do for Friday?

For sure, I know that I will get most of the basic things done it is just any extras that will be not done this week.
