....my "to do" list.........

Well, i am back and feeling a bit overwhelmed by......EVERYTHING

Don't get me wrong, it is all good.

Our family, who's mantra has always been "Bloom Where You're Planted", is returning home....being "re-planted" so to speak.  I still can't believe it sometimes. 

But being in Portland last week, visiting schools for my girls, made it REAL.

My "to do" list is long:

  1. Meet with yet another real estate agent {no offense to realtors out there, but I strongly dislike the sales techniques of many realtors, borders on used car sales-like tactics!}
  2. Meet with the movers - allow them to do a "survey" of all of our STUFF.
  3. Clean/de-clutter for photographer coming to take pictures for the MLS listing {oh, don't you worry, I will link when we hit the web!}.
  4. Fill out school applications for the girls.
  5. Oversee big girl's essay writing for her school applications.
  6. Begin REALLY cleaning out closets.
  7. Get Minnesota house listed by next week.
  8. Workout {I must not let moving get in the way of taking care of me}.
  9. See local friends (it is so cold in Minnesota and I can become a bit of a hermit}.
  10. Make sure my girls are handling all of this ok.
  11. Welcome hubby home on Friday!
I found inspiration today when I read a post by a very good Portland friend who happens to be a professional organizer.  Her words provided some much needed perspective to me as I find myself becoming  increasingly overwhelmed with all that faces our family in the coming months.  I think you all might find it interesting too, go check it out here

  6. Baby steps Jill! Sometimes I get so overwhelmed when I think of all I need to do. The key for me is lists, lists, lists and sometimes not looking at the whole scope but just concentrating on what's right in front of me.


I always love to hear your thoughts! Please share!
