Weekend Planning

I went to bed last night determined to sleep in late and do nothing today. This past week I have had a really hard time sleeping. I'd wake up at 4 AM and it was like my body REFUSED to go back to sleep. This resulted, of course in extremely tired days after and early an early bed time...only to wake again at 4 AM. Luckily by the end of the week I was able to sleep normally although I was still feeling more tired than usual.

So, I went to bed last night fully determined to sleep in late and do nothing!
My dogs, on the other hand, had other plans. I had given my hubby strict instructions to not wake me as he went to work this morning, but I guess I forgot to mention to him that it would be his responsibility to let the dogs out and feed them before he left. On typical mornings I do this whenever I get up for the day, and usually on the weekends, the dogs will be kind and let me sleep in until 8 or so.

But, oh no, not today! 6:45 AM they were quite insistent to go out for their morning constitutional! UGH!
Well, so ok, no sleeping in for me. I did get to enjoy my luxury of relaxing in bed with my cuppa joe and watch the weekend news. The longer I sat, the more I felt anxious to get up and DO something. *SIGH* I guess it's a good thing to feel motivated.

I created a list of what I would like to get done this weekend and that list includes:
  • Clean litter box (not just scoop...but really clean it)
  • Clean laundry room
  • Vacuum living room, bar/dining room & stairs
  • Vacuum kitchen, daycare, hallway & master bathroom
  • Mop kitchen, hallway, bath, laundry room, living room & bar/dining room
  • Wash sheets, daycare laundry, towels & take personal laundry to laundry room to sort
  • Empty dehumidifiers (2 downstairs)
  • Vacuum breezeway & wash dog bed covers
  • Clean out Jeep & vacuum back
  • Drive to Mom's and get table & chairs
  • Put table & chairs together
  • Go for a 4-6 mile run
  • Clean upstairs & downstairs bath
  • Make menu for coming week(s)
  • Grocery shop for needed items
  • Trip to Michael's or AC Moore for craft supplies (stay tuned for that project)
  • Trip to Home Depot to get a new seal for downstairs shower drain (that might be another post) & price out plywood/mdf for DIY shelves for laundry room & office (also might be another post -- if they ever get done!)
So I think that is all on the list. I will try to update Monday morning with a re-cap and a "Did I do it" list.

Have a great weekend y'all!!
