Just a little list to take care of, that's all.

It's that day of the week. It's the day I can feel things getting far too out of control. As each day of the week passes, I get a little more tired, a little more irritable, our house becomes a little more dirty, and my 'to do' list gets a little longer. I need the weekend.

Part of this is my fault. I dared to work out twice this week, and Sean and I are so addicted to the Showtime Drama 'Weeds', that we have been staying up FAR past our bedtime because clearly there is no way we can sleep if we don't know everything that's happened in the lovely town of Agrestic. And with that, we have given up daily tasks such as; dog walking, dish-doing, and laundry upkeep.

Basically, we make dinner. Give the kids 100% until exactly 8pm when we race them to bed so we can FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. Cuz, life depends on it.

We have some fun things planned this weekend, which has been consistent with most weekends this summer. So many fun things I've completely failed to do as I promised myself and BLOG BLOG BLOG about them all.

At this point, I don't know where to start. So instead of catching up, I'm proclaiming to myself and any of ya'll that read, it's coming. This is my list for the day and my goal is that by Monday it's allllll caught up.

Oh, and by the way I am not hopeful this will happen.

I need to write about Sean's mom visiting (which was oh so fun), and Ian's 3rd birthday, and our first official and successful camping trip.

The kids are sprouting right in front of me and there is so much to write down. And for some reason, it keeps me up at night that someday many many moons from now I will regret wholeheartedly not writing down the story about...

See? I already forgot.

Early this week I had at LEAST 5 funny stories and today I can remember none of them.

And I found a school for Ian, WHICH I AM THRILLED ABOUT, but I need to pick up the
registration packet and fill it out.

And the days before Alex goes to real school are few, and I have to buy school supplies before (so I hear) every store in a 90 mile radius is out of Elmers Glue.

And I need to arrange for somewhere for her to go before school and after school.

A group of thank you cards are smashed in my purse from Alex's birthday almost 3 months ago because I need to buy stamps.

And I have a list for Ian's birthday too.

I have three packages to mail, one for a birthday on July 3rd. (FAIL)

Our car's tags are expired.

I have no bread, fruit, vegetables, Popsicles or Gin in the house.

And Sean is out of clean white undershirts.

I need to buy a birthday gift.

The kids are due for dentist appointments, and the vet keeps sending cards that Chip is due for his vet check up. I thought you just took them in if they were sick or dying...apparently preventative care is big for pets now.

Not to mention, we leave on vacation next week which requires an entire list of it's own that results in a clean house, packed bags (which Sean will tell you takes me days, and days and days to complete), mail stopped, work caught up and covered, camera memory card cleared, and the purchase of a few necessary items.

I totally got this.

If I owe anybody money, or you can think of something I'm forgetting. Please send me an email at
