Have to Ground Myself (and set/achieve a Weekend Goal!)
Yes, I am feeling that I truly live up to my screen name...running in place and not getting anything more done than the keep-up-the-home level chores.
I am thinking this weekend I should vow to just stay home and not only do the weekly chores (cleaning house, a bit of household budget paperwork) but tackle SOMETHING I've been meaning to get to.
I have oh such a wealth of choices! I could:
-Work on my son's room. Sigh. I confess it just daunts me...I know, I know, pick a spot and get going. Last weekend my helpful husband put up some nice shelves. Story there too: my BIL the woodworker made those for me as a Christmas gift *3 years ago*. It took me 2 years to stain/finish them (he deliberately gave them to me unfinished so I could match son's furniture). Then they have literally sat in the corner of the bedroom since last summer waiting to be put up. :\. Anyway, I started to put up some of son's umpty-ump trophies and plaques, then ran out of steam.
-Work on my daughter's room. She does make an effort, periodically tidying in there. But she has so darn much STUFF it's just impossible. I need to start priming/painting a chair I bought for the desk she got for Xmas and I'm thinking I"ll haul out a bookshelf from her closet, paint it and put it in a corner to hold some of her 'treasures'.
-Work on the office. My nemesis. Need to tidy the desk. Need to work on purging the files in our cabinet. Need to get it under control!
Okay, maybe I should pick one thing and declare it my goal. I'll make it the daughter's room since son has kids coming today to work on their Battlebots project and I don't want to embarrass him by cleaning his room while they are here :).
Anybody else have a weekend goal?
