This week I'm going to organize my closets and drawers at home and make a list ranking my priorities for the week at work. I have a lot of multiple projects going on at work right now and this is causing a lot of stress.

I think I will plan meals and shop for the coming week. I think......

I have a few things I need to get done before I head back to work. Because I have summers off, I try to do more "projects" around the house. Its when I do my intense "spring" cleaning. I have two things left, finish my outdoor chairs and get the chair rail cut for my boys' bathroom. That's my goal for this week.

Since I was horrified to find out what my fiance was feeding himself at work each day last week, I am doing the planning my meals and getting all the food for the week goal - I told him I'd make his lunches and breakfasts for him. We are off to a good day 1, but beyond breakfasts, I don't have a plan for the rest of the week yet. Time to get started!

START: 222.4 1/1/11

20%: 177.9
30%: 155.7

I have a lot of disorganised papers to do with one of my hobbies. I will aim to set them all in order.

I also will make a "to do" list of my fall deep cleaning projects and actually start on them.

I will make a "to do" list this week and then work on that list. I often make lists and then don't look at them again.
