Summer To Do List

I want to make sure that I actually get some things done this summer and don’t sit like a slug on the couch all day.  So far I’m not succeeding, but it’s only day 3 of summer vacation.  What better way to procrastinate but to blog about it? 

Exercising: I no longer have the “time” excuse for not exercising.  I bought a $600 treadmill months ago and installed a mini television in front of it.  I also bought the first three seasons of Big Bang Theory and all the Columbo episodes to watch.  So my vow is to walk a minimum of 30 minutes a day. 

Reading: I have a ton of books waiting to be read so I’m going to try to squeeze in some reading every day.  My problem will be once I get into a book, that’s all I will want to do.

House cleaning:  Not my favorite thing, but I need to stay on top of it so I’ll try to focus on something small every day – like laundry.  Andrew posted a comment on my Facebook page about the garage.  I don’t know if I’ll get to that this summer.  With much of it full with Josh’s items, there’s not a lot I can do.  There’s a lot of Matt’s stuff in there that probably needs to go into the attic, but it’s not a priority right now.

School work:  I have to prepare for a session that I’ll be teaching in the fall so I do need to work on that some this summer.  I also need to work on updating the school website.  I probably won’t work on this on a daily basis, but I do need to do some work throughout the summer and not do it at the last minute like I tend to do. 

Scrabble Studying:  Since I’m now committed to playing in the National tournament, I really need to do some word study before we head out to Vegas next month.  I’m going to try to commit to at least 30 minutes a day.  Matt bought me some index cards and a special new pen with purple ink so I’ll get started on those today. 

House organization:  I don’t know if I’ll get to this, but I still have closets with stuff that needs to be put away and organized. 

Start an etsy shop:  I have a bunch of rosaries that I need to sell and beads for several more that I need to make.  I think I should start an etsy shop to sell them. 

Well, I guess that’s enough to get me started this summer.  Now if I could just get myself off this couch and actually start doing some of these things!  I think I should have lunch first.  I need that energy to get going.

Your list made me tired, and I'm retired! The longer I taught, the fewer things I wanted to do each summer. I was so exhausted at the end of each school year, that it took me at least four weeks just to recuperate and begin to feel sane again.
