So, We are one week into 2013! How are your resolutions going? What have you tweaked? What have you let go? Are you still on track?
As some of you know I started back on my card system to keep me on track with time management and keeping my house in order. I actually started a bit before the first of the year because I wanted to have my brain ready and my system in place. I have started to tweak and change some things though.
I haven't changed much with my weekly, monthly, or quarterly cards yet. Although after scrubbing tubs and showers last week I thought that weekly might be too often for that job ... I think this is more due to that I don't like doing that and I would much rather put it off and not do it as frequently. For now, I am leaving it as a weekly task as I do think that it will be much less of a time consuming (and less work) if I do actually get it done every week. I will be making some changes to my daily cards though. For instance ... I need to change wiping counters and tables - I currently have them on my morning list and I thought they were on my afternoon and nightly list too ... but they are not. I will probably take them off the morning and move them to nightly. I also have sweep kitchen/dining on both afternoon and nightly and I will be moving that to only nightly.
I have also been thinking about the things that I need to do that are not already in the system. Thinks like vacuuming my car, washing the car, and outside chores ... like hubby and I were just talking about trimming our fruit trees and both decided that we needed to remind each other in late February to do this ... probably something I could make a card for and increase the likelihood that I will remember! The car chores certainly need to be done ... and I am seriously considering treating myself to the local car wash once a month ... especially if I am getting all of this other stuff done. It would be a nice treat not to have to do that!
I need to give more thought to my work chores and how I would like to add them in. I certainly have things that need to be done on a daily, weekly, monthly and annual basis ... but I need to give more thought about how I want to get myself on track. There are several things that I do for work that need to be done when the weather is cooperating ... and I need to get organized so that when the weather is nice, I am able to do them without being buried in other things that have to be done immediately.
Unfortunately I haven't figured out how to get the weather to cooperate with my schedule ... so until then, I need to be ready when the weather is cooperating!
So, tell me about your resolutions!! Leave me a comment!
