The first 2 weeks of the Holiday Houseworks plan has been easy for me coz I've been able to do most of it on my computer :-D I have lists & more lists that I haven't lost yet thanks to Google Tasks. I can open the task list so it is side-by-side with my handy-dandy Google Calendar (which conveniently displays all my appointments, school work & marathon training workouts in one place).
There was no travel to plan as DH works in retail. If you also work retail then you know that you DON'T TAKE TIME OFF between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. At least you don't if you are on the managment side of things.
The only thing to schedule is DD's annual photo session. I'm never able to go as I work during the photographer's available times, so that task has been delegated to DH -as usual. We don't have enough carpeting in the house to warrant a professional coming in. I may borrow my sister's carpet cleaning machine to hit DD's room (with vinegar & water, naturellement).
I bought a lot of supplies for craft projects last season, but I didn't start them. To me that means they aren't REALLY unfinished projects and the materials can stay in the general collection to be used as I see fit. Taking that into consideration, I only have three "unfinished" projects in my stash to take care of.
This leaves me with the only task left undone: starting a tear file. I love my holiday mags. I'm not sure that I can bring myself to actually TEAR PAGES out for the ideas that I like. I may just use a magazine rack to hold my magazines and books and mark the pages with sticky flags. The undone task was (easily) moved to the next week's list: Me and Mine week. Glancing at this to do list again I see I'm in for a lot of physical prep work. *Sigh* Oh well, my bedroom is ready for a
How are your holiday preparations coming along?
