A weekend to catch up

It's a fact: a busy off-line life means a lack of online life. 

The silence on the blog just means that I've been running up and down, with lots of things to do and too little time to do them, not that I am gone. My mind has been occupied by my studies, mostly, and Oath's increasing taste for danger (his passion for outlets, power cords and trying to throw himself off of beds, cribs and couches are a constant source of activity in this house!) hasn't made things better, either.
But the blog hasn't been the only thing to suffer from my absence: our house is a mess. If I got a penny for every time I say this, I'd be rich soon, but it's true. When I have to let go of something to retain my sanity, order and organization are some of the first things to go (as is food, which explains my lack of menu planing lately). And oh, have I let go lately!

The old me would be so appalled that this happened that she would not know what to do. The new me (the mom me) knows what she has to do: start again, keep trying, not give up. Preferably before Monday.
Why? I do not work well when there's people around: if I feel watched, I turn into a clumsy bunch of nerves and nothing gets done. But Partner is gone this whole weekend and this means it's the perfect time to do a quick home rescue mission! Oath is here (but I can clean with him watching me, thankfully!), so a bit of organization and planning ahead is needed:

This is how my weekend will hopefully go. What about yours? Now that summer is just around the corner, are you taking time to relax or, like me, frantically trying to get everything in order?

  1. Way to go with the lists! You can do it!

    1. Thank you Emily! I'm happy to report that Saturday is about to end and I am still on track (which means half the house is clean and nice, wohoo!)

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment ^_^

  2. I'm the same way. I have the hardest time cleaning when people are around including my boys. Of course, my boys are old enough that I have an easy solution: make them help :) I love your plan--I know you were on track on Saturday--how did the rest of the weekend go?

    1. I hope the day Oath can (and wants!) to help me comes soon. Some things would get done faster!
      I managed to keep on track all weekend, for the most part: I did not get to organize all of Oath's clothes, and cleaning the fridge was more like "throwing away some stuff and quickly wiping the fridge, but hey! That's more than enough for a weekend :D
