This is what I wore after a week of wearing the same clothes when I was sick. Even though I mostly live in jeans, once in a while, it’s nice to don a dress and pretend I’m a lady.
I thought I’d start sharing my personal projects here on the blog, partly to help keep myself accountable but also to let you guys in on what I get up to in my ‘spare’ time, usually after the boys are in bed at nights.
About a year and a half ago, I started keeping a monthly projects list on Simplenote (which I sync to Notational Velocity on my desktop). This has proven to be incredibly useful in more ways than one. On the one hand, it helps me to stay focused on what I want/have to accomplish each month. At the same time, it allows me to not stress about all the other projects I need/want to be working on. The simple list format means that I can easily ‘bump’ a project to a later month. If truth be told, this happens a lot. But that’s what I love about this projects list of mine: it’s completely flexible. You can have as many or as little or even NO projects on the list for a particular month.
So here are my projects for this month and next month:
- Set up Angus’ 4th year Project Life album – completed
- Design new website for church – completed
- Finish Pete’s 2nd year scrapbook
- Sort/organise photos (Mar-Apr)
- Set up Pete’s 3rd year Project Life album
- Finish Jamie’s 1st year ’365 days’ book
- Finish Jamie’s baby book
- Set up Jamie’s 2nd year Project Life album
- Photograph/catalogue Angus’ preschool artwork (not looking forward to this one, if I have to be honest)
With only five days left in May, I reckon that I should be able to finish Pete’s 2nd year scrapbook, as all the photos have already been printed and cut up. I just need to stick them in and caption them. The last project, however, will most likely be carried forward to June, and I reckon at least a couple of those June projects will be bumped to July. It’s all about the shuffling.
So over to you guys – what project or projects have you been working on? Do you have a particular way you keep track of your projects?
Anyway, here’s wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Whatever your plans are, make sure you eat cake and cuddle the ones you love.
