Mom's Weekly Check List

I have a problem.
I am easily distracted.

And while I have great intentions at the beginning of each day I have a hard time accomplishing things without written directions - maybe I am ADD, ADHD or something, I'd like to blame it on something other than me just being me!
So I have spent many hours trying to find my own motivations, and trying to play on that.
I have a weekly schedule that I try to fill our each Sunday evening - sometimes it happens each evening.  This really works great because I just do exactly what it tells me to on the piece of paper (most days).

Here is an example of a 'normal' Monday in my schedule:
I have uploaded it to Google docs via here, if you are interested.

Since the arrival of our sweet baby girl I have been struggling getting the laundry folded and put away as well as paperwork taken care of (this always seems to be the case following a baby - and each time it takes progressively longer to rebalance).

I have created a check list to complement the schedule above - kind of helps to keep me on track.  I obviously cannot do each of these things each day so the number on the left is what my goal is for each week.
Printable version can be found in Google docs here
Using this list for the past couple of weeks indicates that I accomplish approximately 60(ish)% of what I set out to do each week.  I am hoping to improve that number to closer to 80% in the next few weeks.  I also have lists for monthly and annual, but they are still being tweaked and I hope to share soon.

Be productive.
