Free Weekend

After listening to me whine about never having time to tackle a growing list of projects, hubby has generously offered to take the girls to his parents' this weekend, giving me the entire weekend to myself!  Well, almost the entire weekend.  They'll get back around 2:00 PM on Sunday and then we have a dinner with a few couples from our sunday school class at church.  But I'll have pretty much the whole weekend and I'm SO excited.  I have a huge list of things I want to get done or at least work on and I just know I will barely make a dent in it, but it will still be so nice to work on as much of it as I can.
So, I made a list of everything I would like to do (I know I won't get to it all) whether it's a project or just something fun and/or relaxing.
  • Purge/organize bathroom cabinets/drawers/linen closet
  • Purge/organize dresser (already did this!)
  • Order prints
  • Organize photos/put in albums
  • Scrapbook
  • Read
  • Clean/organize kitchen cupboards
  • Clean/organize fridge
  • Catch up on Say Yes to the Dress
  • Watch at least one movie
  • Purge/organize girls' closet and dresser - transition from spring/summer to fall/winter wardrobe
  • Start tagging items for the upcoming consignment sale
  • Get some things ready to sell on Ebay
  • Gather/organize things for upcoming garage sale
  • Download new music/make some new playlists
  • Shop!
And speaking of shopping, I have a whole list of stores I want to hit while I'm child-free.  The only problem is, if I spend too much time shopping it will significantly cut into project time so I'll have to really prioritize and try to find a good balance.

Anyway, they just left and I'm heading out shortly to go redeem Living Social vouchers at Ben Franklin (a craft store) and Whole Foods, then I'm going to spend the rest of the evening watching Say Yes to the Dress and reading my book and a magazine and hopefully start on one of the many above mentioned projects.  Ahhh...this is going to be a great weekend.
