Checking Things Off...

In 9 days, I will be flying out to California with the BF, but I can't let the excitement get in the way of what needs to be done before then. And boy, there is a ton of things that need to be done... big and little. So, in typical Stacy-fashion, I made a to-do list and look forward to crossing things off as I go...
Here is what needs to go down:
(in order of priority)


Finish this ... my final grad project that is due next friday, but must get done before I leave for vacay ...
Finish emptying this room...including removing the rest of the carpet and padding ...

Try to organize this mess ...
(most of the furniture and crap from spare bedroom mentioned above)

Mow the lawn ... x2
(possibly this Wed and then next Tues again...weather permitting)


Measure spare bedroom (mentioned above), possibly look at flooring options (laminate vs. carpet), get estimates, pick out paint, look at window covers, etc.

Replace vent cover (for bathroom exhaust fan) on outside of house

Scrub the floors in bathroom and kitchen and vaccuum the rest of the house

WORKOUT!! - I don't know how much "training" I will get done during our trip and the triathlon is only 4 weeks away. Plus, this is a great stress reliever!

Start packing for trip! yeah!

So, who wants to help me get this all done? Takers? Anyone?

I'd start with the grass first - looks like the easiest one AND you get in some exercise! Double bonus :)

Have fun in Cali!

Do you work with childred with Autism? I spent a few years as a "Therapeutic Assistant" doing one-on-one tutoring, ages 2-10. It was challenging, but super rewarding! Good luck with your to-do list. I'm headed to CA myself in a couple weeks!
