Not Getting it Done

Filed under: Plans — by Alison @ 1:19 pm

The last two weeks have not seen a lot of progress. I start on projects but then they stall.

The pictures are all framed, but still not hung. The vegetable patch is still a dirt box and I was hanging on to the blank daycare forms. I know why I’m procrastinating on the daycare front, I’m not really accepting that I have to return to work in September. If I get my son’s daycare arranged then it makes it more final and more real. My husband sees it differently, he’s worried the daycare will fill up. So with his prodding, the forms have been filled out, the immunization records copied and the package will be dropped off this afternoon. I also sent an email to work confirming my days of work and contacted my HR advisor.

On a happier note, I booked a hotel for our first night away from the kids. We have tickets to see U2 in Montreal next week. This is the rescheduled tour date from last summer. We’re staying downtown and will take the Metro to the Hippodrome.

I’ve also booked our hotel for a family weekend in Montreal, and need to book the hotel in Tremblant. All in all, the summer plans are coming along nicely.

The list:

  • Replace deck
  • Replace bathroom sink
  • New front door
  • Drapes for front windows and dining room
  • Fix family picture wall
  • Clean up vegetable patch
  • Plant something in vegetable patch
  • Create organized craft cupboard
  • Arrange child care for the fall  Need to bring in paperwork
  • Use restaurant gift certificates
  • Book hotel for U2 concert
  • Book hotel in Montreal
  • Book hotel in Tremblant

Check back next week to see if I’ve finished anything from the original list.


  1. That sounds like some fun times before you go back to work!

  2. Yay to getting a few things off the list. And one of the points of this list is getting the stuff we don’t really want to do off the list.

    YAY to night away and holiday!
