After a weekend of refusing to do anything but the absolute bare minimum (and a lot of cooking/baking), my home is feeling less like a home and more like a dumpster.
I need an intervention.
Since there is nothing more motivating than having someone WATCH, and since I am so desperately in need of some motivation, I am going to write every thing I am able to accomplish today right here. Tonight.
(And yes. I am the kind to write things down just to check them off like...
make breakfast. check.
eat breakfast. check.
change diapers and clothes x3. check.
do chores. check
blog to-do list. check.
And here is a list of some things to keep me on track. The ones with the ** are HUGE jobs.
~ Laundry. Five loads. Wash. Dry. Fold. Put away. check-well, 2 of the loads are still on the line because it started raining.
~ schooling. ** check
~ Tackle front room ** check
~ Organize yardsale clothing **
~ Finish the letter I started writing yesterday check
~ Finish switching Judah's clothes to the next size check
~ Call pet shops about bunnies check
~ Put ad on Craigslist for bunnies and camera check-the bunnies anyway.
~ Find out about Easter hosting check
~ cook dinner (what should we have? hmmmm.) check- ziti and salad
~ dishes x3 check
~ Move Corynn's desk. ** check

~Move Judahs bed. :-( check
~Empty garbages for pick-up. check
~ Remedy EGG situation. (we are swimming in them.) check
~ Put away bags in bedroom check

(can't imagine I will get to these today but I will write it here just in case. And there is always tomorrow.)
~ Deep clean my bedroom. **
~ Move bed. Sweep and mop under it.**
~ Dust bedroom furniture.
~Clear off nightstands.
~ Dust living room.
~ Organize school shelves **
~ Tidy office
It will be interesting seeing just how much I can get done today, especially since Adele' is being a whiney wanting-to-be-held-all-day-or-bawling-instead kind of girl today.
Hopefully I don't look TOTALLY pathetic at the end of the day!
~~~~~~~~ Well it is 10:45 and I am *THIS* close to going to bed.
I never thought I would have accomplished so much...not to mention:
~ swinging Adele' on the swing
~ following Andrew out to admire a baby bird who fell out of her nest
~ hugging on, nursing, and cooing at a gurgling baby Judahbear
~ making a new batch of peppermint iced tea
~ changing Adele's clothes when she fell into a big 'ole mud puddle.
Kissing her boo boos.
~ Listening to Corynns latest chapter book rehash. I've created a monster.
And here is the 'front room' before and afters, one of my MANY to-dos for the day. Just because.
Nothing like telling the world you are a loser to get yourself re-motivated!
(I just hope when tomorrow morning rolls around, I wake up!)
