Time Off To Do List Update

Happy Labor Day, friends! I hope you're all enjoying this long weekend.  Unfortunately, my time off has come to an end. I'm glad that I was able to accomplish so much on my list though. Although I didn't complete every single item, I did cross of a ton, which I think is huge since it took over two hours for carpet cleaning alone on a beautiful sunny day. I'll be posting some before and after photos so you can see the magic of a few storage bins, along with what our apartment is looking like. There will also be a follow-up on the marathon training coming soon. Let's just say there has been a bump in the road, specifically my right foot...

Apartment:
- Clean the entire dang apartment (including carpet cleaning)
- Organize and clean out living room closet (including tupper ware storage bins, create bin or basket for all re-usable bags)
- Kitchen (clean and add wall art, buy bin for Louie's food, clean off kitchen table) didn't pick out any art for the kitchen
- Living room (hang speakers and art, if find art for above the couch) speakers now are on the TV stand and art will soon be ordered
- Organize and clean out hall closet (add bins for clothes, move seasonal clothes to top, sort through and giveaway clothes, combine M's junk boxes into one)
- Bathroom (hang photos and finish decorating!) no idea what decoration I want to take with decorating the bathroom
- Bedroom (organize closet, give away any unworn/unwanted clothes, finish headboard and install, hang photos/art, maybe buy second laundry bin) hung one print, but we finally got a second cable box and the bed frame is finished, just need to buy slats 

Running/Exercise:
- Marathon training 3 days a week, completing the exact workouts more on this to come...after my doctor's appt. on 9/14
- Cross/strength training 2 days a week (yoga, boot camp, Pilates, rollerblading, etc.) I biked a few times...
- Hiking with Louie or play dates with Whiskey, every day

Misc.:
- Get pants that I bought in January shortened at least they are now sitting in my car...still waiting to be shortened
- Re-cover kitchen chair cushions picked out the fabric, just need to order then install

For Fun:
- Read every day!
- Get some Vitamin D at the pool or beach
- Bake French Macarons from scratch with little sister failed with this
- Make marinara sauce from scratch with little sister failed with this
- Sleep in once a week

I have two pair of straight leg jeans that I've had FOREVER that need to be taken to get shortened. Because they have enough stretch though, I can just hem them myself by folding them under, haha! It's thus been more than a year having both pairs and they've never been shortened!

Well, it still sounds like you accomplished a lot! I have a LOT on my to-do list. I want to get it all done before November!
