Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

Tackle It Tuesday – lots of tackles

Thoughtfully penned on February 19th, 2008 and generally concerning Tackle It Tuesday

This is my first time participating in the Tackle It Tuesday carnival hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom, but I decided that with my pre-baby to-do list growing as fast as my belly it might be a good time to jump in and get some things tackled.

Saturday was quite a day around here for household tackles; I think Matt might be nesting, too. On Saturday he hung new blinds in the living room and Little’s room (something we’ve been intending to do since we moved into the house almost 2 years ago). He also got started on the trim painting that needs to be done in Boo’s room before we can hang his blinds and finish the nursery. We also put several new things on the walls in the living room and kitchen eating area and moved several other decor pieces around in the living room; as Matt said, it looks like we actually live here now.

Yesterday I worked on the deep cleaning that I wanted to get done in the kitchen and eating area. I only lack cleaning the refrigerator shelves, etc to be finished in there. Then I will move on to the things I want to get done in the living room. I also got my kitchen junk drawer cleaned out and organized last week – for some reason it makes me feel really good to have accomplished that small task.

So our tackles this week haven’t been real exciting or worthy of before and after pictures, but they are things marked off the to-do list. My goals for the week to come: clean the fridge, dust the books/bookshelves in the living room (actually taking the books off the shelves to clean for a change), and conquer the stack of back-issues of my magazines residing on the bedroom bookshelves.

Happy Tackling!

  3. great tackle today! and welcome to the group! i only started last week myself!

  4. I think all men should feel that nesting instinct when a baby is coming – they have to have more energy than we do at this point, right! Great job.

  5. Great job! Sounds like you’ll be good and ready when the baby comes. :-D

  6. Last week was my first week and I’m already addicted. It’s so much fun! Great first week.

  7. Sounds like you got a lot done! I could sure use some of those nesting hormones, but not necessarily another baby to go with them. lol Hope you had fun with Tackle it Tuesday. It’s definitely motivational and addicting. ;o)

  8. that’s quite a tackle for your first week!
