My August To-Do List

Oh my. Today is August. That means I have only three weeks remaining in my summer. It has flown by but there is still so much that I have to – and want to – do.

I like lists. I like making them and I like crossing things off my list. While I make lists in the summer, this is the time when my list making really resumes in earnest.

Here’s a look at my to-do list for August.

  • Read five more books.
  • Update my book read list.
  • Write a new book review.
  • Set up my classroom. (One bullet item that encompasses so much!)
  • Organize my classroom library.
  • Plan the first week of school.
  • Finish planning music for the year.
  • Attend first faculty meeting of the year.
  • Host my Aunt, Uncle and cousins from Illinois.
  • Have friends over for dinner.
  • Clean the carpets.
  • Visit with extended Whirrett family.
  • Catch up on laundry.
  • Can two batches of blackberry jam.
  • Upload (a few) vacation pictures to facebook.
  • Hang picture frames in upstairs hallway.
  • Begin a new fruits and vegetable challenge.
  • Cut all my vacation coupons.
  • Organize coupon binder.
  • Share an updated post on my coupon binder.
  • Record a couple hymns and songs on the clavinova at school to get a good start for the year.
  • Pick a musical to perform this year.
  • Mail Mikaela’s dress to her.
  • Check with Kindle customer service about scratch on screen.
  • Buy a case (with a light) for my Kindle.
  • Sleep in – once or twice more!
  • Watch the Olympics.
  • Enjoy these final weeks of my summer!

Whew. That’s a list. Of course, laundry and grocery shopping continues as usual, too. I’ll update you before school starts with my progress.

What is on your to-do list for the next couple weeks?
