Generally, I live by checklists. I have one for parents to call, students to follow-up with, doctors to call, reports to write, lists, lists and more lists. I do like the sense of crossing something off that list….even though there is no shortage of tasks.
At the start of the week, I created lists of things that needed to be completed for the week. Not all have been checked off as I have been busier than I thought I would be with work.
Tonight while texting with my neighbor, she shared her list. She has a “To do”, “In process” and “Done.” I thought I love this! I am making one for Ryan, Lucas and Grandma. My kids already have their school day checklist (and yes it is laminated), but this can be their own things they would like to do for spring cleaning.
I am certain, I am the only one who will enjoy having the lists hanging on the wall. Maybe with the right motivation, their closest can be cleaned out too! They have been so good about everything this week, maybe we can keep that positive spirit going!! Spring cleaning here we come!
