When school gets out and we've just crammed 12 months of work into 9 months, who wants to tackle the to-do list the day after graduation? Not me. June feels like the whole summer lies ahead and there's no sense of urgency. Then July rolls around, and suddenly I feel the crunch. I start working on the list, but then July is even busier for football, traveling to see family, church camps, maybe a workshop, and taxiing Ryan to summer workouts. Before I know it, August has arrived and the summer is over and there are still un-done things on the list. Depressing.
So, this year, I came up with a different solution. I'm possibly addicted to Google Calendars. I have several different ones, but that's for another post. I made a separate Google Calendar for summer projects. You can it below in the red entries.
Some of my projects...
Clean the inside of the car windshields
Enter Ernie's professional development hours into our new online PD tracking website
Clean out gutters (I plan to outsource this to my 6'4" hubby!)
Clean kitchen tile grout
Clean out Ryan's closet and dresser
Paint the frame of a mirror bought cheap at Kirklands and hang in Ryan's room
What about you? Do you make a summer to-do list? Is this just a teacher thing since we have summers "off?"
