Ready To Begin Our 28 Day Challenge?

Several weeks ago I was thinking about how as moms we can often get overwhelmed with the long to do list and the many un-done projects in our mom world and I thought what if we as moms supported and challenged each other to accomplish one project each day big or small and together we began seeing our to do lists get checked off each day. So, tomorrow we begin checking off our 28 day project list one day at a time. Will you join us?

I made my list and filled it with projects that I could accomplish in a few minutes and ones that might take me several hours to accomplish, I also had to come up with a weeks worth that I could accomplish while traveling this month. I have listed them below to help inspire you to create your own 28 day project list and join me tomorrow.

Let's get started? Grab a notebook or sheet of paper and begin writing out 28 projects you would like to complete in February. You can either assign these to particular days in the month or each day choose a project that fits into your day from your list.

My projects will include things such as cleaning out the kitchen drawers, taking a child's bike in for repairs to creating a new list of dinner ideas and even making Dad's Valentine gift this year.

Let's get started making our lists and I'll check back in with you next week as we begin our 28 day project challenge on February 1st.

I'd just like to say I think this is a great idea. I often get overwhelmed when I think about all the things I need to get done. Especially because I am currently 8months pregnant, and on a bit of a time crunch. I'll be making my list to be a part of this 28 day challenge, and I'll thank you for the encouragement of getting my tasks accomplished.
