What will you accomplish this week?

Christine over at Spring Cleaning 365 suggests that today's daily task be to "Write down every single thing that you need to accomplish this week. Then schedule those things (but make sure they’re the RIGHT things) on your calendar. That way you’ll know WHEN you will accomplish those things on your to-do list." Well I do love a list and I haven't been getting much done so let's give it a shot.

Hmm .... Lose 5 pounds while eating cupcakes and ice cream? Book a trip to Paris? Magically know exactly where we will move in the summer of 2017? Guess that isn't what she meant!

I'm starting with my commitments:

Wednesday: Vet for monthly shot, Annual eye exam
Thursday: Volunteer book sorting at library, Monthly book club in evening including pick up food to take

Add in weekly chores:

Sunday: Wash linens
Monday: Clothes laundry, Clean house
Wednesday: Grocery shop at supermarket, Vet for monthly shot, Annual eye exam
Thursday: Volunteer book sorting at library, Monthly book club in evening including pick up food to take

And now exercise - keeping in mind predicted rain on Thursday and Friday and that I cancelled my gym membership as I just wasn't using it enough. I have rearranged our office to make space for at home workouts and the warmer weather will make long walks easier:

Sunday: Wash linens, Walk the Beltline with Hubby with lunch at midpoint
Monday: Laundry, Clean house, Stretch DVD, Walk dog
Tuesday: Long walk with dog
Wednesday: Stretch DVD, Walk dog, Grocery shop at supermarket, Vet for monthly shot, Annual eye exam
Thursday: Volunteer book sorting at library, Monthly book club in evening including pick up food to take
Friday: Stretch DVD, Walk dog if weather permits
Saturday: Long walk without dog

What else needs to get done? Rake leaves in driveway and courtyard and prune 2 bushes. Complete Federal and State amended tax returns due to late arriving data from inheritance. Confirm room available for annual meeting for Friends of the Library and transfer membership email list to a Gmail account. Alter a top and a pair of capris. Watch 4 Craftsy class sessions on altering clothing. Thrift shops for donation and warm weather clothing additions. Check out new to me stores for wardrobe additions. Find new groomer for dog. Wash car. Schedule bone density test and mammogram.

It was interesting to build my list this way and it includes time with friends, Hubby and pet, health, exercise, volunteering, workable wardrobe efforts, and homemaking.

The list got pretty long even though it doesn't include daily cooking and clean up! Doable? I'll let you know how it goes!

Sunday: Wash linens, Walk the Beltline with Hubby with lunch at midpoint, Rake leaves & prune, Start on amended tax returns.
Monday: Laundry, Clean house (half done), Stretch DVD, Walk dog, Alter top and capris, Confirm room availability for Friends annual meeting (left 2 messages - no response).

Wednesday: Stretch DVD, Walk dog. Grocery shop at supermarket, Vet for monthly shot, Annual eye exam (rescheduled due to Dr. running very late), Wash car.
Thursday: Volunteer book sorting at library (to Friday), Schedule bone density test and mammogram, Watch Craftsy class session 3 & 4 (NO, already know this unfortunately so this was a waste of money), Finish cleaning houseMonthly book club in evening including pick up food to take.
