Task it TuesdayWelcome to Task It Tuesday! created by the Awesome The Geeky Blogger

Hosted by Michelle at Because Reading is better than real life!

What is Task It Tuesday? It is where every week I list a task or tasks that I would like to accomplish on my blog or in Real Life before next Tuesday. It can be big or small but the goal is to get something done that will make my blog/reading life/challenges run smoother, faster, or more efficient and/or get those simple or complex tasks done in my real life. I will also be sharing organizing tips and linking with posts from bloggers that have some great tips and tricks for keeping you and your blog/real life organized.

Christmas is almost here and I have a lot to do to get ready, blogging will be put on hold after Tuesday, so that means I will be going on a break starting Wednesday. I will still have a Task it Tuesday next week because I still have a bunch of stuff to do before the end of the year. I want to be able to enjoy the family and spend some time with them while the kids are off. Plus I want to try and finish all blogging before the new year so I am fresh and ready with no stress so I will have all or almost all finished by Wednesday so I can take the break without worrying about what will post while I am away from the blog.

Have a very Merry Christmas and Thank you all for stopping by to check out Task it Tuesday, it will be back next year 🙂

  1. Looks like you have lots of fun Christmasy things to do, so have fun with that! 🙂 I baked cookies to take to our little group that hangs out at JJ’s in the mornings, they really like my pumpkin cookies. I even make sure the crew there got some of their own. 🙂 That is about as Christmasy as it gets here…lol. 🙂
