So how did I do on my weekend to do list?

Yesterday, I posted my HUGE weekend to do list that I hoped to accomplish..... so now the question is how did I do???

Well here is the original list with those items completed marked off....
  • Pay bills (AEP, Directv, Mastercard, Geico, Time Warner, etc.)
  • Figure out where to get Ben a mattress for his new bed
  • Research Straightalk phones (Bill and I both need  new phones)-- DECIDED NOT TO DO THIS UNTIL BILL CAN COME WITH ME TO LOOK AT PHONES
  • Balance checkbook
  • Clean out the closet upstairs off the bathroom (this huge walk in closet is a mess!)
  • Figure out spring/summer clothes situation for the kids, especially for the boys
  • Have Rebecca make a design for her First Communion banner and go buy the supplies needed
  • Complete 3 chapters in Rebecca's First Communion workbook-- WE COMPLETED 2
  • Clean both bathrooms
  • Laundry---do about a million loads to catch up ;) (I ended up doing 10 loads)
  • Straighten up bedroom
  • Clean out underneath couches and loveseat to find missing toys
  • Date night dinner with Bill
  • Rebecca has softball practice
  • Lesson plans for tutoring job
  • Art lesson plans for school job 
I also ended up cleaning the dishwasher out, bathing all three kiddos, got Benjamin's big boy bed all put together, cleaned out the boy's dressers, and swept the boys' bedroom. So I am feeling pretty good about this weekend. I am exhausted but feeling good about what I got accomplished.

The job that was the biggest was to clean out the closet upstairs off the bathroom. It was an absolute mess! Here is proof: 

It was absolutely horrible!!!!! So I began to sort, sort, sort and sort some more. This closet holds toiletries for the bathroom, it is Rebecca's closet to hang her dresses as her bedroom does not have a closet, we store winter stuff in here, air conditioners, and fans, as well as extra clothes for the kids that they need to grow into, etc. It has a lot of uses, but becomes messy very quickly. 

I was able to get it all cleaned in around 3 hours. I sorted through all the kids' clothes and bagged up what is too small for them to wear and stored those clothes that will fit them next winter. I was able to figure out what the needs are for summer/spring for the kids' clothes (thankfully not as much needed as I originally thought). 

The final product: 

Everything is all nice and neat. In the picture, you can see the 4 boxes and 7 trash bags of clothes, etc. that I collected that will be heading off to Goodwill. I am so happy that this project is done. Now to keep it this way. 

So, I am pleased with how I did. I feel better about our home and hopefully, can keep up with my to dos as next weekend I have LOTS of plans that do not have to do with home cleaning. 

How was your weekend? 


  1. Hey! A closet with a window! Looks like it could almost be a small bedroom. Great job cleaning and sorting! Starting is the hardest part.

    1. I believe that the closet and the bathroom were once one bedroom that previous owners sectioned off to make a bathroom upstairs. It is a weird setup.
