We have had some type of cold bug in our house for over a week. Needless to say, my house is trashed. TRASHED! From top to bottom. But today I have the day off and today is the day it HAS to be taken care of. Before I lose my mind...
So today I have a list. I am giving myself permission to hop on the computer after I finish each thing and check it off (and maybe check my Facebook too 'cause I am busy whopping Nicki's butt at Scrabble and can't let it go too long between turns).
Make beef stew and bread for tonight's dinner
- Clean out A's playroom
LAUNDRY (and NO this does not mean washing and drying it all to leave it on the couch - you have to fold it too) Wash sheets Wash, dry and put away dishes Sweep the kitchen floor Vacuum living roomand sweep stairs Fill Andrew's prescription (for the stinky ear infection) Make bed with clean sheets Find A's costume for holiday play Bathe both boys Dinner done and eaten by 5
- **Edited to add** Don't beat yourself up if you don't finish everything
Call Sarah and check in on her (preferably while you are doing one of the other chores)
I have 3 hours to complete it all before the kids make it home from school. We have their holiday play tonight so there won't be much time to do anything after they get home...
So if you try and call and I don't answer its because Newsies and Les Mis are turned up full blast and I can't hear anything...wish me luck!
I did not make the beef stew because, apparently, beef left in the fridge for a week is no longer good (at least it didn't smell or look good when I opened it).
I did not actually TALK to Sarah. She was at work when I called but I told her I was thinking of her and to give me a call when she could.
The playroom will have to wait for another day...although it NEEDS to be done before Santa comes. He will not leaves presents at a house where the
kids moms haven't cleaned up the messes.
