How to Organize Your Summer

Hooray for summer!!! As I mentioned in my last post, I use summer as a catch-up time.
The problem is that before I know it, I've watched the entire series of FRIENDS from beginning to end, watched several Real Housewives marathons, caught up on every episode of Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, House of Cards, and Blacklist, and am left wondering how I could have possibly not washed my hair in 4 days, and why I'm opening the confetti-filled letter from my principal giving me the schedule for pre-planning. (True Life - confetti.filled.envelope. - only took ONE time for me to learn to open it over the trash can).
Also, I get tired of hearing the Mr. asked what I've done all day while he's been working. I definitely don't want to look back on my summer, and wish I had been more productive. Soo,  I organize myself for the summer. I mean, really, who doesn't love a good to-do list???

I follow the "One-A-Day" rule - it's simple: I try to accomplish 1 thing each day from my to-do list. I know it doesn't sound like much, but otherwise, I end up in my pajamas, on the couch, watching Matlock re-runs wondering when I turned into my dad.

In addition to accomplishing something "extra" from my to-do list, I also make sure that I'm caught up on laundry (because when does that ever happen during the school year), plan out our meals, make said meals, and just generally try to make the Mr.'s life easier since I am technically "not working." Sure, I don't have to do any of those things, but it's fun to pretend I'm a stay at home wife/dog-mom for a few weeks.
Trying to feel accomplished this summer? Want to know what I do over the summer to help get ready for the new school year? Head over to The Primary Peach for a few more tips and some FREEBIES!
