After some more cold rain over the weekend, today is sunny and the next few days will be truly warm. We did lose a few more soccer/baseball practices/games, but hopefully the weather will continue to improve. I discovered this lovely yarn head while cleaning out.
Over the past week I:
- Got all our kitchen knives sharpened. It was overdue and they work so much better now.
- Put away another batch of winter clothes. There’s one batch left.
- Bought a bike helmet for one twin whose was too small.
- Paid a field trip fee.
- Scheduled a long overdue doctor appointment.
- Got my garage door fixed. We had a power outage that seemed to have fried the control board.
- Finally got the new computer to talk to the printer
- Getting the printer on the wireless network wasn’t too difficult. (Hadn’t set that up before because the previous computer would not talk wirelessly.) But, the getting the driver set up was trickier because it is getting to be an old printer. But, it works fine.
And the kids (as appropriate):
- Went to Before School Sports.
- Played three baseball games.
- Went to three baseball practices.
- Went to gymnastics class.
- Went to bike club.
- Went to the Little League Opening Day parade.
- Played in one soccer game.
- Went to one soccer practice.
Even though I didn’t quite get everything done, I did well in April.
- Assemble one LEGO set that needs adult assistance. Sadly, still no.
- Sort through my clothes and keep/donate/recycle. The quantity is not terrible, but there are a few too many I have not worn in a very long time. Made it through 75% of this. Will finish off in May.
Inspired by others who have embarked on spring cleaning, I will try the method whereby you throw out the number of items as the day of the month, with a few caviats: They have to have been our house for at least a month; same day junk mail doesn’t count. Throwing out = trash/recycle/donate/sell as long as the task fully done by the end of the month. I think obviously trash will be the easiest here, since no second step is required. If I make it this will be 465 items, so any size counts.
Get all the kids to their respective activities. This is no small feat in the spring and will get even worse in May when baseball is in full swing. So, definitely not the easiest, but the highest priority.
May will largely be a repeat of April:
- Assemble one LEGO set that needs adult assistance.
- I have other things to assemble now too.
- Finish sorting through my clothes and keep/donate/recycle.
- Because I have momentum at the moment, and more things that still need cleaning out, I’m going for 465 items again. Yes, one school paper does count. And, yes, same rules otherwise. Because I’m mid school papers and there are a lot of them, I’m going to count down from 30 this time. (Yes, I know May has 31 days, but we’re going to stick with 465 things again.)
- Get all the kids to their respective activities. This is even trickier in May with baseball is in full swing. So, definitely still not the easiest, but the highest priority.
