Hello friends and happy Friday. I hope you had a great week. My camera broke yesterday so my week hit a bumpy patch. But that’s not what this blog post is all about. As you probably gathered from the title, I have decided to discontinue the Finish It Friday series. For those of you who have joined me in the past, and especially to my faithful Finish It Friday friends, I send you a big thanks for joining me all these weeks. I know for sure that sharing my to-do list here has helped me get more stuff done around home on the weekends, and it has also helped me make sure that my weekends aren’t all work and no play.
So, you may be wondering why, in light of all that good stuff, I’ve decided to stop Finish It Friday. Here’s why. When I first started blogging, I had what seemed like an endless supply of ideas for blog posts. I blogged about life, organizing, my family, stuff that was on my mind. Whatever. Everywhere I looked there were ideas for blog posts. Finish It Friday has become a blogging crutch for me. It’s time for something different. Something fresh. Something new. I’m not exactly sure what all that will entail, but I do know that works for me! When I don’t know what I’m going to blog about, that seems to be when I get my best ideas—messages that I want to share, messages that really connect and help my readers. And who knows, maybe I’ll decide to do a form of Finish It Friday on Facebook. (If you would like that…let me know.)
For old times sake, here’s my to-do list for this weekend:
- Run 6 miles. My half-marathon training is going well. Can’t believe I’m almost done with my fourth week! Check! Okay, I ran 5 miles two times. I”m going to say that counts.
- Dinner out with Jay and friends. Check!
- Bike ride on Sunday. Check!
- Meal plan + grocery shop. Check!
- Laundry. Check!
- Sell flute. I’ve had a couple of nibbles. Keep your fingers crossed—I’d love to get this sold and off my to-do list. Check!
- Read. Check!
I think it is going to be too hot to paint finish painting the chairs, so I’ll be consulting my home to-do list to find something else I feel inspired to do this weekend.
What’s on your to-do list this weekend? Thanks for sharing in the comments!
