I try to do the following things on weeknights because I don't want to spend my weekends cleaning:
1 - Spend 20 minutes on my daily dos, which means picking up around the house, putting stuff away, wiping down counters and baths, dealing with the dishwasher and laundry. I am usually successful at this five days a week.
2 - Tackle one small-ish task. Some nights I tackle zero and some nights I surprise myself and get a lot done.
You only see one mention of reading, but that's a nightly thing for at least five minutes before bed. I also turn on my Himalayan salt lamp and diffuse lavender oil. You might think these are woo woo things but I sleep solid as a rock since I got that Himalayan salt lamp.
2 - Final kitchen cleanup, broke my coffee spoon rest and I'm keeping it anyway
3 - Sunday night ritual: mask
4 - While the mask is doing its voodoo, I lay out my clothes & bracelets for the week
5 - The dogs come upstairs but are otherwise not interested in what's going on
6 - In bed before 9, always a Sunday night goal
2 - Zumba. First time back in a few weeks and I was sucking wind.
3 - Villanova game. I couldn't fall asleep until 1 a.m. after that buzzer beater.
4 - I meant to do things after zumba but I basically sat on the couch all night with the dogs.
2 - Things that should've been on my wrestling a gator post: wrapping gifts. I am the worst at it.
3 - Did about an hour of work in the basement and unearthed this 1987-1989 notebook between me & Jen. LOL
4 - Geege hurt his paw when him and Mae got in a food fight and was limping around and being pitiful.
2 - Things come home from the shore in that tote and
3 - Things get repacked to go back to the shore in that tote. MFD is heading down Friday.
4 - Picking up around the house, done pretty much daily. I didn't do Monday this week.
5 - Cleaned out the fridge. How does it get so grody?
6 - Cut up cantaloupe.
7 - Argued about politics and taxes at 10:30 p.m.
8 - I diffuse lavender next to my bed at night.
9 - Had to stay up until 12:15 to finish this book. I was over it.
2 - Record for over an hour with Jana and end up with...no recording on my side. I have no idea what happened but it stopped at 42 seconds. Sometimes technology bitch slaps you to remind you you are not the fucking boss. But a new episode of The Armchair Librarians did drop yesterday, so check that out! http://
3 - I had other things I wanted to get done but the tech fail killed my soul so I painted my nails (Humidi-Tea) and read, both of which always make me feel better.
And today? Today is Friday. And it's Rex Manning Day, which is a cause for celebration.
What do your weeknights look like?
