    I wish we had a freezer big enough to freeze and store things but I can barely fit what we keep for regular use. :rolleyes: And I can't justify the purchase of a stand alone freezer.

    Let's see what's on the agenda this week, not much actually.

    [X] Chiropractor (Mon)
    [X] Ortho (Wed)
    [X] Hair color/cut (Fri)

    [X] Objective Assessment
    [X] Begin new class

    [X] [X] [X] [X] [X] [X] [X] Gratitude Journal
    [-] [X] [X] [X] [X] [-] [X] Face Routine
    [X] [X] [X] [X] [X] [X] [X] Care/of Vitamins

    [X] Call about referrals (PT, Monometry)
    [X] Start hanging items on walls
    [/] Clean up and organize front room
    [X] Organize and finish our bedroom
    [-] Rearrange kitchen cabinet items
    [X] Finish front porch
    [X] Take move in inspection sheet to Housing office
    [X] Release paperwork for DS
    [X] Enroll DS in new school

    [X] Laundry
    [X] Wipe down bathrooms
    [X] Sweep upstairs (new chore have to get used to)

    [X] Read!
    [X] Time with friends

    I highly encourage that if you're not adding Fun into your weekly lists, please do so. That is just as important as all the "necessary" items. It's food for your soul. We can't work, work, work all the time and never replenish our stores. We can't run on empty. So make sure you are scheduling time for something you enjoy doing, your FUN, to fill you back up. You can't pour from an empty pitcher. :)

    Rain has prevented us from working outside. So I had the opportunity to work in the living room today.
    I have everything measured out for DH to hang the mantle, just need to do it. After that I will take a picture for inventory. Oh I just remembered, we wanted to change the small casters on the buffet to larger locking ones.
    If you look at my weekly post you can see my editing of what has been done.

    Great job, ladies! I did get most of the things done. Some of the cleaning was more like a touch up and what I didn't get to this week, I will another time. :D

    From now until mid November my weekends will be visiting colleges and/or attending volleyball games. After trying my normal weekly list with the HHP, I've decided that I will drop the FlyLady routines. I will stick with the HHP, bill paying, cleaning bathrooms, menu planning and reviewing the calendar and any other thing that comes up for the week.

    We here will be busier over the next few months too, funny how we go through really busy times and then not so.
    I need to keep on the ball if I am going to fit it all in without becoming stressed. Got to strike the balance between getting stuff done and finding time to relax.
