10 Things I need to get done today!


It's a quiet morning. The kids are still sleeping. Mom is outside watering her flowers. The dog is with her. I'm sitting at the kitchen table with my coffee and writing down all the things I have to do today. This is what is going on.

1. First of all I got my water bill the final one after the water leak...$446.00. I hit the roof. Since Scott fixed it and not a professional all we have to prove it was a leak is a receipt for $3 at a hardware store. So I'm going down to the water company today....you wouldn't want to be that clerk.

2. Madison has tennis today and I plan on going to Bed Bath & Beyond to pick up my master bath stuff. This part will be fun. And I have a 20% off coupon.

3. I need to deliver my Mary Kay to about 6 different people. $$$$$$$!!!!!!!

4. Miller has a hair cut appointment. He is shaggy again. Sweet but Shaggy.

5. My sweet E gave me a gift certificate to Star bucks for picking her son up at Bible School 2 weeks ago so me and Madison may run and get us a Frappuccino since it has been so hot here lately.

6. Calling a local church today to enroll Miller in Mothers Day Out in the fall. Is that mean? To be a stay at home mom and still need a babysitter to get things done?

7. Signing Madison up for Gymnastics for the fall.

8. Today is Scott's moms birthday and I need to get her one more thing. Guess I'm going to Chico's.

9. May swing into Pet's Mart while I'm over there so Miller can see the animals He loves animals but calls them dog dogs.

10. Enjoying this moment of things being quiet. My coffee is still hot. And things are calm. In about 20 minutes life will get crazy.

Happy Monday everyone.

Sounds like you've got lots to do!

And it's not bad to put Miller in mom's day out! I started both of mine as soon as I could! I think it's just as good for the kids as it is for us moms. They need the social interaction and to know that it's ok to be without us for a while.

Well, since you wrote this at the crack of dawn, I think I missed the twenty minutes and it's already crazy there.

For heaven's sake, that water bill is horrible. Surely you won't have to pay that.

Your day sounds nice to me. My day is shampooring carpet and the dreaded washing and ironing of my bed linens.

No, it doesn't sound awful at all that a sahm would want a day here and there to herself. I can't begin to think how you'd stay sane otherwise. So good for you. And good for him, too. He'll enjoy it.

This is my first time stopping in. Your place is so pretty and I can appreciate that morning cup of coffee. I agree, the mom's day out is good for you and for the kids. I'm a SAHM, my kids are older now, but I couldn't have done it when they were small, without those mornings to myself!

Thanks for letting me stop by:)

Hope you get it all done Jen! Mother's day out is a good thing, even though you're home it's always nice to get a break/babysitter once a week. Especially while they're small!

Wondering if you were able to get it all done! I stopped writing lists out anymore because it's so much pressure! So much to do! ha!
