Happy Friday

It's Friday and I'm ready for the weekend. Before I head home, I like to leave everything clean and organized; ready for Monday morning. I clean the boards, straighten the student desks, make sure all the chairs are stacked, and pencils are sharpened. I make sure all the books and resources are out and ready for the coming week. My desk is dusted and neat with a small pile of thing to do first thing on Monday. Do you have a ritual like this? I love how easy it makes Monday morning. But, have you ever noticed that no matter how organized most people are, their computer desktop is often a mess? I found a site that can really help with that. Click here.

Happy weekend, friends. May all your dreams be sweet ones.

Oh, Relyn--you are my idol! I'm head off to get my desk unburied today! You inspire. (Oh and right now I'm hustling off to find out about how to clean and organize my computer desk!!) Happy Friday!

Happy weekend!

Jessica said...

Yes! I can't enjoy the weekend if everything isn't out and ready for the following week!

that is how we are when we leave the cottage. we tidy, wash the floors, everything in it its place. opening the door on the next visit is always a pleasure.

Hi Relyn,

You may have gathered that I'm not a list/organised kind of person - but I'm glad that some people are! The screenwash is amusing!! Enjoy your weekend.

I wish I were as organised; I usually leave everything for the very last moment. Of course, I don't have a classroom of my own- I have 8 different classes a week- and I'd loooove to have a place to call 'mine' at work.
Happy Weekend!

Relyn, oh how wonderful to come back to an organized place to work! I loved the "help" you gave us too. I can just see Bandi doing that! Only, she thinks she is people just like us! Ha! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, full of exciting things for you, Jeffrey and Sloane to do.

maybe one of these days I'll share my desktop...like around halloween, because it falls into the very scary category.....

Char said...

my desk as exploded this week. as I haven't had time to do my reading at work. so it's piled around.

maybe today. *fingers crossed*

happiest of weekend wishes to you! I didn't know that you were a teacher too! I teach highschool art. Very important to straighten up the art room before leaving. xox

jacqueline said...

Tracy said...

Hi, Relyn! It's been an extra busy week here, so very much looking forward to the weekend... Friday is often cleaning, household chores and grocery day for us. Sunday afternoon I usually tidy up my studio for another week and write my to-do lists. I love such rituals... :o) Happy weekend ahead, my friend ((HUGS))

That made me laugh -- unlike the pesky dog in my house that decided to up end the trash can in the kitchen because she thought I was too slow in delivering her food. Aaargh!

Regrettably, my office is in general, a terrible mess. And whether it is Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc., I go splunking through piles. And I usually find stuff! (If I ever have to move to a cubicle, I'm in BIG trouble!)

The confirmation word is "bammerd" which sounds like my week has been. "I've been bammerd this week with unexpected projects!"

ELK said...

happy weekend..i do this with my music room each week too...nice to start fresh!

dutchbaby said...

I like to water my plants every Sunday night. I love that screen-cleaning service :-D

JoLyn said...

I just cleaned my desk today...really cleaned. And it feels great. I wish I was more like you, but I'm working on it. : )

Kamana said...

i do that. i hate coming into a disorganised office in the morning, and clean up everyday before i leave.

Marilyn said...

Yes, I always like my kitchen tidy before I leave because it is the first place I see when I return. I love neat and tidy, not particularly clean though.

One Womans Thoughts said...

Let me say, I stumbled across your blog and loved your words and photos. Please share with me how to get the video of the little pug "cleaning" the computer screen. I am a fan now and still. laughing!

I like to do the same thing too! It makes for such a smoother Monday when I come in and everything's ready to go. Each night during the week, I pack my bookbag by the back door, and lay out my clothes and jewlery so there's no surprises. That way I'm out the door without a lot of hassle. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I try so very hard to stay organized because I hate hate hate clutter..but if you looked at my dishy kitchen sink right about now, you would never know it.
