On a daily basis, there are so many tasks that I push to the side or will get to "down the road" and pretty soon those little tasks pile up until I realize that no amount of stuffing it into my drawer will make it go away. It's there and needs to be completed.
I needed an excuse to tell myself to stay in this weekend and after my longggggg list of to do's kept growing that was blatantly staring at me every day on my refrigerator, I could only think of one thing that made sense. One thing I haven't done in months.
Stay in for the weekend.
And get my life organized.
My apartment. My closet. My bathroom. My bills. My taxes. My dry cleaning. My mail.
I needed to cross off to do's that ranged from filing taxes to cancelling cable and getting Apple TV to take in a few items to the dry cleaners that have been sitting in my room since Christmas. (Yes, I'm that bad at my dry cleaning and clearly some chores in general.)

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I was able to accomplish over two days, how much sleep I was able to catch cup on and how I even squeezed in an impromptu late lunch with my parents and a not-so-healthy pizza consumption at Angelo's with friends on Sunday.

While much of this weekend was about spring cleaning my life and maybe watching a little vampire porn in the form of the last Twilight installment, it was also about getting back on my workout regime and restarting my Saturday two-a-days.
Spring is coming which means the half marathon is a cool 75 days away and our goal is set at 2 hours. That goal isn't going to reach itself without some serious dedication to long runs on Saturday and probably not eating Angelo's until after the race. Good thing I got in my fix this weekend.
So how well did I do? I cut my list in half from what it was and knocking out the rest this week.
Will you be spring cleaning your house or life and how do you stay organized?
