Summer To-Do List

Well, summer vacation is finally here and I couldn't even sleep in. I guess that is what happens when you get up at the same time for 9 months straight. We only have about 8 weeks off this year thanks to the 10 snow days we had. I am going to enjoy this time off and get a few things accomplished. I am listing some things I want to get done on here to hold myself accountable.

1. Help mom get the yard cleaned up. We will need hubby's help for this because he can manage the chainsaw.

2. Get our pool swimmable again. We have a lot of iron in our water, which when mixed with chlorine turned the water brown. Yuck!

3. Do some heavy-duty summer cleaning in our house. This doesn't get done in spring, so I want to do in the summer.

4. Read my Bible faithfully every day. I want to become closer to God and really listen to the direction he wants us to head in.

5. Exercise!!! The end. I have gotten out of this habit, but my body and mind need me to get back in.

6. Read at least 5 books. I love to read and need to make time to do it. It's my great escape!!

7. Do my book study for work. We have a flex-day during the year, where if we already have acquired 6-hours of pre-approved professional development we get the day off of work. I chose to read a book and summarize it and the implications it has for my teaching. The books sounds really interesting so I will have to get in the school mode and make myself get it done. This does not count toward the five books I want to read.

8. Tend to my garden. We have planted a small garden and a small salsa garden. I hope we get some yummy vegetables from it. We have cucumbers, tomatoes, yellow squash, zucchini squash, eggplant, beans, and some other things. Can't wait until we can actually eat some of these.

I'm sure there are plenty of other things to get accomplished, but this list is a start. I have until about August 10 to get this list accomplished. Let's see how I do.
