Mid-month Update - October To Do List

What I managed to get done so far is in red below.
  • Put all clean clothes away - we have a blanket box somewhere under the mound of clean clothes in our bedroom.
  • Do a pantry & freezer inventory
  • Plan meals on what I have in the freezer & pantry
  • Rip all plants out of garden - started
  • Buy J a new winter coat & hat
  • Buy J new soccer shoes
  • Buy J some long sleeved shirts, sports pants & long johns
  • Work as many hours as possible (even if it is boring and there is nothing to do) money is money!
  • Deep clean ensuite bath - it really needs it but as I am the only one who uses it, it is easy to put off.
  • Clean office - getting very cluttered
  • Finish Bright Hope quilt blocks (fabric to be cut and then pieced - 8 blocks)
  • Buy sashing, binding & backing fabric for Bright Hope quilt
  • Finish sewing rag quilt and clip fringe
  • Bake banana muffins to use up dead bananas in freezer (I think they are multiplying)
  • Make chili and freeze for lunches
  • Make taco lentils & rice and freeze for lunches
  • Look into hiring a cleaner to come in once a week to do bathrooms and floors
  • Book dentist appt for J
  • Book ortho xrays for J
  • Book cleaning with dentist for me (Urgh!)
  • Book haircut & brow waxing (before they merge!)
  • Get quotes to replace 2 windows
  • Clean out hall closet and freecycle what we don't need
  • Post J's outgrown clothes on freecycle
  • Get K to vacuum out old furniture so friends can come take it for their basement (and get it out of my house!)
  • Finish crocheting striped blanket and tuck in all colour-change ends
  • Lose 5lbs
  • Attempt pumpkin pie from scratch with J
  • Change sheets to flannel (will happen this weekend)

re: Bell, I learned about this, this week. If you want to speak to someone from Canada, press the French option, and it's a Canadian, then say you can't speak French and they will speak to you in English, that way you don't have to "go" to India!!

Probably in your younger, pre-kid days, you enjoyed the satisfaction of finishing a to-do list. Never mind bananas multiplying in the fridge, the to-do list seems to grow two or three new items for each one accomplished. Kudos for making a dent in yours!
