Three Ideas for Springtime Activity
2. Do some good ol' fashioned spring cleaning. This is also either a joy or a nightmare. Either way, it sure feels good once you've accomplished some spring cleaning.
Take this time to make sure that your home is ready and good to go for the newbie.
Pick an area in your home once a week, and just work at it; either go full steam and get it done in a day, or pick away at it all week. Maybe week 1 you'll choose the dreaded junk drawer. Week 2 could be the hall closet. Week 3, do some cleaning of neglected things, like drapes or ceiling fans. (Oh wait; maybe it's just me who neglects ceiling fans…) And so on. Make a pile for tossing things and a pile for Goodwill.
3. Work on those projects you never seem to have time to work on. Because as busy as you are now, you're about to get even busier. Make a list of those nagging little to-dos first. For example, my list would (does) include: replace vent in bathroom, paint light switch cover, hang new blind over sink, hang pictures in nursery, etc. Your significant other can also get involved. Think of it as dual nesting: making sure your home is ready and good to go for the newbie.
Write your Spring Resolutions down on a big sheet of paper, and post it somewhere you look all the time. Write down what you’ve accomplished, or write down your goals, and cross them off as you go. It is very satisfying to cross off something on a to-do list!
