Task it Tuesday-Weekend Recovery!

Task it Tuesday 
Whew!  What a busy weekend.  As many of you may know, this weekend I participated in Dewey's Readathon.  Plus I had the Morro Bay Kite Festival.  So great to see some friends I only get to see 1-2 times a year.  I got a good chunk of reading done. Some on my list, some not. 
This week it is about putting the house back in order and hopefully finish catching up on more that is still listed here.  I have a lot of task goals I want to work on in May so my focus this week is energy recover (I am just drained from the past 4 days) and mostly old tasks.  My blogging really slipped the past two weeks and I want to really give it some good attention this week.  I also still have a TON of yard work to do.  


Understanding the color code used:
Red=Past Due by this date
Blue=What I have done since last update
Black=Not Due or New
*Fun Will never be red & new additions will be added in green.

    1. I have a lot of sympathy! I'm trying to straighten out the house and garden and juggle all the normal household tasks as well so I can feel your pain! Still, every task done will all add up and we'll both get the stuff done in time!

    2. I love how you keep track of all of this - keeps you focused on completing the tasks so they don't just fall by the wayside!
