  • Catch-Up Day

    When I was working full-time outside of the home, a “Catch-Up Day” was a real luxury – a day to get to all of those things that never got done for sheer lack of time. When I became a work-at-home mom, I didn’t think I would need catch-up days anymore.

    I was wrong.

    Life is busier than ever, and things still pile up. So today is a Catch-Up Day for me. So far, I’ve cleared my desk, filed papers, followed up with a store about a return that wasn’t processed correctly, and prepared our flexible spending account reimbursement forms for submission.

    Next on my list is COUPONS. I’ve fallen behind on collating and clipping, and I think I have two months’ worth of expired coupons to sort out. Once I’ve updated the Unexpired Insert Coupons list, I’ll let you know on Facebook.

    Also on my list of things to do is finishing some PTA stuff, tossing things that have been sitting around that we don’t need, and putting away things that aren’t where they’re supposed to be. Hopefully by the end of the day, the house will look more in order, and I’ll feel better for it!

    How often do you need a “Catch-Up Day?”
