To those of you who stopped by and commented last week on Tackle it Tuesday: Welcome and thanks for visiting; I hope to see you again! I apologize for not making the rounds last week, life got in the way and I didn’t get to visit the other participants; I’ll try to do better this week.

And now on to our tackles…

The biggest thing accomplished in our house this week was that Matt finished painting the trim in Boo’s room. Yay! Now we can begin the decorating/furniture placement phase of this operation. Before and after pictures will be posted at some point.

For my part, I’ve made a dent in the tackles I set out to accomplish and conquered a couple of other things. First, the magazines…


This is what my stack looked like when I started. I’m not caught up yet, but I’ve reduced the stack size by approximately half. The remaining half will go on my tackle list for next week.

From my housekeeping/nesting list I dusted the bookshelves and wiped down the baseboards and walls in the living room. Because I’m not a very thorough duster, the shelves were probably a bigger job than they should have been. It does feel good to have these two things accomplished, though.

The plan for next week includes cleaning the fridge (I’ve been procrastinating a bit on this one), the living room wipe down/dusting (still lack upper moldings and tops of doors as well as the inside of the television cabinet), and completing the magazine job.

Good luck with your tackling!

  1. Glad you’re able to get stuff done! You’ll feel so good! I can’t remember the last time I dusted! Good for you!

  2. Way to go! Babysteps!! Thats what it takes to get the job done w/out feeling overwhelmed:)

  3. I really should find all the magazines I haven’t read yet and get reading too. Gah! And the dusting? What is this dusting you speak of?

    (Found you on 5 Minutes for Mom.)

  4. Good job! Dusting is one of my least favorite jobs… and despite the air filter we have – we live in a very, very dusty house! LOL

    Congratulations too on culling the magazines… that’s always time consuming.

  5. Good luck with the rest of the tackle. I look forward to seeing pictures of the room when it’s all done. :-D

  6. Seems like you’re off to a great start. Good luck with everything.

  7. Good job. Makes me want to go tackle my magazine pile-almost.

  8. I’m always a few weeks behind on my reading!

  9. It looks good so far! It kills me to throw away magazines that I haven’t read.

  10. Good work! I’m trying not to overdo it and yet nesting like crazy over here!!
