To-Do while in Indy

I've spent weeks at a time at my parents' house before and I haven't been as purposeful about the time away from the normal routine as I should have been.  So in the interest of being as strategic as I can, I've written the following to-do list for myself.  I promise to update as I cross items off!  (To-do items are in no particular order...)
  1. Write piece for essay competition.  Have a friend edit/review it. 
  2. Work on Shutterfly albums for kids and order when completed.
  3. Go through recipe collection and cookbooks; create a more organized recipe and meal list binder.
  4. Begin work on creating a home organization binder.
  5. Check in with professional organizing client and schedule a second round of organization with her.
  6. Do something fun and extra-special with the kids at least every other day.
  7. Take walks.
  8. See friends.
  9. Blog.
  10. Pray.
  11. Enjoy Lucy's birthday party with family.
  12. Sleep.
  13. Catch up on all emails (even the one that's about 2 years old now...yeesh).
  14. Haunt Half-Price Books.
  15. Schedule and enjoy some time with both my sisters.
  16. Begin Christmas listing, window-shopping, pricing, perusing, etc.
  17. Write love letters to Marty.
  18. Hit clearance racks at Von Maur, TJ Maxx, and Target.
  19. Go antiquing at favorite store in Franklin.
  20. Visit with my grandparents.
And there you have it!  Wish me luck!

Wow, that's quite a list! At least they all seem like fun things to do, not chores. Have a wonderful time and say hello to everyone for me....
