Things To Do


This is going to be one boring list of things that I need to do in the next few days. Feel free to skip it if you want.

  • Finalize the food for the boys birthday in about 2 weeks!
  • I have over 600 emails in my inbox. Maybe I should go through that.
  • Get started on Professor's video. Poor third child is missing out!
  • Do the dishes. We have several days worth due to Juice being gone almost every night this week. He normally does them. I leave them for him most days because he likes to feel like he's a part of the household. Totally fine by me! But today there are several loads to run so I thought I'd help him out.
  • Laundry. Ever present laundry.
  • Bank and mailbox. I finally managed to see Twilight the movie. With Juice even! I convinced him that we should buy the books! Hmm...maybe I can head over to the used book store while I'm out.
  • Address, stamp, and send invites to the party. Curse the fact that Butterfly lost my address book over a year ago and email everyone who needs an invite for their address.
  • In between all of this, look after the kids, 2 dogs and try not to be freaked out over every little movement in the corner of my eye. I hate having this mouse around. At least the last one we found Soot killed!
  • Talk to my mom and sister in law about their trip next week! I can't believe they will be here in 7 short days.
  • Sigh...I guess I need to add house cleaning to this list.
So, one more busy day in our life. Do you ever get bored of reading what I do every day? I do sometimes. I'm amazed anyone besides my parents and grandparents still read.



  1. I love to read it. I live vicarously through you. How did puppy do this morning?

  2. Actually, it makes me feel better about my never-ending to do lists. :) It's nice to know I'm not the only one who feels like there isn't enough time in the day.

  3. My life is filled with very similar, just as boring lists. It's nice to know you're surviving your lists so I probably will too. Keep up the good work and watch out for little critters - Yikes!

  4. wow. You sure do get a LOT done. more than i do and I only have 1 kid! GO YOU!

  5. The lists are neverending, aren't they? Sometimes I just have to blog and ignore the lists:)

  6. You just reminded me that I need to get going on my to-do list ;)

    Happy (belated) Birthday to Juice! My to-do list is pretty stagnant these days so you've inspired me to try to knock out a couple of things today while J is home. I hope you get your mouse situation under control because they will make you paranoid! Our first house was built in a former corn field and so for the first year we had traps all over. Good luck.
