Our big weekend is almost here! Our son and his tour group are driving into Canada today. They'll be with another church in the area tonight, then they'll come to our house tomorrow afternoon through Sunday afternoon. And Sunday is our Friend Day!
This week has gone fairly smoothly as far as planning and getting things done. I've been working in the kitchen zone all week and adding other little areas as I see them, mostly just straightening up in general. Sometimes I don't see things until I try looking through someone else's eyes - like a group of young men staying in my house for the weekend!
I've lived by lists all week. Each day I've written down the three most important things to get done that day, whether it's house-related or some other aspect of life, and I've been happy to cross those off my list each day. I'm working on a post in my head about this principle I've recently learned of getting those most important things done first. It forces me to prioritize my life according to what's happening that day, and then it's easier to get to those other things that need to be done but aren't quite as urgent. I love to read about time management and try new things to see what works best! Now I just need to apply all I learn and actually do it!
I'll be busy this weekend, but hopefully I can work on some things for next week. Have a great weekend!
