Getting things done

Lately I have been feeling like I am really unproductive and don't use my time wisely. A few weeks ago, I started a weekly cleaning schedule, and it has GREATLY helped me get things done and not feel so overwhelmed. However, I still waste very precious time on not very productive things (*cough* too much time on the internet *cough*). Today, I decided to kick my butt in gear and be thankful for the time I have - that I don't have to work a full time job, and that we don't have kids yet so I can use my time to help others.

So, today I would like to share my list of accomplished things!
  • Made bed
  • Sweeped all hard floors
  • Vacuumed corners and baseboards
  • Deodorized (sprinkled baking soda and let it sit) and vacuumed carpet
  • Mopped all hard floors
  • Soaked shower head in vinegar to remove all the nasty stuff that has been building up
  • Caught up on e-mails/phone calls for work
  • Updated household calendar
  • Picked up clutter in office and bedroom
  • Organized all recipes in recipe binder: put recipes in page protectors
  • Cleaned out and reorganized home management binder
  • Dusted all hard surfaces
  • Wiped down mirrors
  • Wiped bathroom and kitchen counters
  • Made dinner for a good friend of mine that is a new mama: Baked bread, made lentil soup, baked chocolate chip cookies, made label tags and tied them on with ribbon to each item
  • Made dinner for my husband and I: Eggplant Parmesan - served and cleaned up
  • Had to sweep kitchen again
  • Went to Goodwill and purchased: basket to put dinner for new mama in, new cloth napkins for our everyday use (7 new napkins for 2.75!), and 2 new Fall tea towels (.79 cents!)
  • Dropped off food to new mama and held her beautiful new baby boy for a little bit
  • Did dishes
  • 1 load of laundry
  • Looked over our budget with my husband
  • Read a few new blogs and got some cool ideas for all kinds of stuff
  • Looked up Christmas gift ideas
  • And wrote this blog post!
  • And it is still only 8:30pm
Okay, so I am sure there are those of you out there that are thinking that this is nothing, but I feel great about it... so, don't burst my bubble!

Thanks for letting me get that out! Now for some quality time with my dear sweet husband!

Whew! It takes me at least a month to get that much done!
