Looks a lot like my to-do list, except I have MORE painting on mine. ;)
Filing is my downfall. My worst fear is for the state to want to see my materials and completed assignments. "Let's see...we'll start with this pile over here...now we'll move on to this pile in the next room...."
I'm curious about the 15 boxes of curriculum. Do you receive materials from your school district?

We use the K12 curriculum. We love it. It's a lot of stuff, though. There is a link on my sidebar.

Oh and tshsmom, I really can't stand painting. I am really bad at it.

One of the things I do is buy one of those expandable files for both kids for every year. Every piece of paper that they complete goes into that file - even artwork as long as it is not a 3 dimensional sculpture type of thing. That gets bundled up at the end of the year and into a box in my bedroom closet.

Are you using Rastaman's recipe for cookies? I thought you were supposed to put that stuff in brownies?

Hahahah - I am laughing at what Mike said!
I love those expandable folders. I am going to need to rent some storage space as my kids get older if I keep saving everything! Help!!
Great list - looks like mine except I'm with tshsmom, got lots of painting to do. Grrr...

This cracks me up, I just made a to-do list for this week and mine was similar with 26 things on the list.

Thanks for the tip!!
I guess I'm being too anal about my filing. I've been dividing it into subjects and semesters. I'm using your expandable file method this year!!

Hi Alix!

Mike - lol!

Got it Alix and responded. I am glad to see you!

Kate - I hear ya. It's getting to the point where it's all going to have to come out of my closet and go into the basement. I think I'll get one of those large plastic tubs and just put it all in there.

LMC - we have way too much to do!

tshsmom - wow! I'm impressed with your filing system. My expandable files are sort of messy looking. At the end of the day I staple everything together and date the top sheet. Then I just put the most recent pile in front - so it is in order back to front. The files are bursting by the end of the year, though.
