Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

My tackle today is more of a bunch of tackles. I've needed to clean off the top of the dryer for umm, weeks now. Today is the day!

Also I have several stacks of stuff I haven't put away. For those who have been reading my blog for very long you'll know that I've been organizing my house like a crazy person. So, I'm determined today to take care of some stacks that have creeped and crawled right up on me.

Lastly, I am going to work on homeschool plans for my soon-to-be kindergartener. I've found a few things that I have printed off and read and I've made a list of books I'd like to borrow from the library. Today, I'm going to organize these lists and resources in a file folder, cleverly labeled "Kindergarten".

So, thank you, friends and readers for listening to my Tackle It Tuesday plan. This evening I'll post an update showing pictures of the completed tackles. I'd better get moving!!

Grand Update:

I finished cleaning off the dryer, BUT I forgot to take a before picture. I dug right in and put things away and threw things away! Having this done, I whipped right into the bathroom and cleaned it AND the half bath in our room. Big smiles!

I put 3 stacks of stuff away. One stack in the dry sink, one stack on a chair in the corner of the kitchen and one stack on the counter beside the oven. They were not that big, and therefore not too difficult to put away. I also dusted the living room and Marissa cleaned up the toys.

Now I'm in the process of filing things for kindergarten. I will do more after the girls go to bed. Okay, because we have dial-up, the pictures take a loooonnnggg time to load. So, I'm going to bed now. I've been working a little bit on kindergarten plans. I'll hopefully share more about that during this week.

I'm really enjoying Tackle it Tuesday. It gives me freedom to clean one area and leave the others until another time...like next Tuesday. :) And clean counters and floors help me stay motivated to keep them clean.


  1. looking forward to those pics :) Happy Tackle it Tuesday!

  2. Horray!! :) I have a list of books for my soon to be kindergartener (is that a word - lol) too :) Good job on your tackles!!

  3. I always love getting an area in my house reorganized. It feels great!

  4. Good luck on your tackles!! I have several "piles" that need to be tackled too. Hmm... too much to do and too little time to do it.

    I have a bit of homeschooling planning to do for next year as well.
