rites of passage

Spring is lovely. But this change of season brings on a whole lot of tasks. I'm in a list kind of mood this morning. The organizational side of me.

clean and store winter boots...not started

go through summer shoes and clothes...done (only because was done before going down south)
bring out sunscreens and bug spray and sunhats...getting there
put away winter clothes...not yet
clean vehicles of all winter crud...started

tune up 5 bikes...done
organize structured summer activities for kids...underway

make appointment for my own medical and eye exam...yeah, yeah
call pool guy to come officially open up pool...done
clean furnace air filters...done

I'm sure there's more that I'm forgetting right now

AND then, hubby's list:

Hmmm, I think I want to come back as a guy in my next life.

You've humbled me with that list. We do have the sunscreen and hats in use, and some of the winter stuff put away, but what is this cleaning before putting away thing that you talk about???


Now I know why I don't make lists. The list is always too long. Your list looks pretty good though you have a few chores checked off. Good Luck with that window one. I think that would be a good one to delegate to hubby.LOL

I was just thinking about starting a list today. With the sudden onslaught of summer, it seems that I missed some of my usual tasks. I would really like to include both of your hubbys on mine too. Of course I would have to get another motorcycle and well, find a way to strap "J" to it ;). But, the golf clubs are ready and raring to go downstairs!!

Like I said on this past week to you...Do you hire out? Man I'll be lucky if I get the windows washed.
I do take the winter coats and move them from the ktichen to the Front Closet and they are washed I do put the boots in the basement...that;s done to.
I have to call the PED. But I've been doing that since Jan. I'm a good procratinator.
Cleaningout the Crumbmobile of the winter crumbs well they do rot don't they? ;)

Hey! Very Nice! Check out this website I found where you can make extra cash.
It's not available everywhere, so go to the site and put
in your zipcode to see if you can find something. I found something and make
and extra $900 a month!
