Cheryl is working on her back to school list!
We are half way through summer and only weeks away from the start of school.
I have loved having my kids home with me although there have been some very long days these past few weeks.
My house is a disaster zone with craft supplies all over the floor, dirty laundry piling up in the laundry room and a list of photos to print growing exponentially each day on my desktop.
It has been a fun summer. One spent outside and in and around the city. But I am tired. Exhausted, really.
I am drinking iced coffee almost daily to keep up with everything. And everyone!
I am already starting to count down to the beginning of school and am looking forward to getting back into a regular routine.
My September to do list is slowly growing.
1. Organize closets
2. Enroll in a weekly fitness class
3. Clean the kitchen
4. Sort through old toys and decide whether to toss, recycle or donate
5. Finish our 2011 family scrapbook – this one is stressing me out the most
6. Come up with a meal plan and start preparing freezer meals for those busy weeknights and weekends
Five more weeks! 35 days (give or take) left to go before I can feel peaceful and calm walking around in my own home :). And maybe I can finish reading a book too! Not Amelia Bedelia or Little Critter but my own books!
Anyone else excited for back to school? Is September a month of organization and cleaning for you? What’s on your to do list?
