Remember my to-do list from last week? Well, I did manage to cross off everything but three items that day. And today, when I decided another list was in order, I sat down to write it and ended up with the exact same list. (Well, almost. Replace “blog hat” with “start another hat” since I’m a hat-making machine lately and not quite ready to blog about it.)
Such is life, I guess. There will always be laundry to fold, orders to pack, dishes to wash, and exercise to do, and no matter how many times you cross them off of the list, they are just going to keep on coming back.
While I’ve got some creative things in the works, and there are small havens of clean, comfortable, cozy areas scattered around my home, much of my day is spent looking at things like this:
Which is really not as bad as it looks, and could probably be cleaned-up in less than an hour if I’d just DO it, already.
And reminding myself that, really, the time has come to reclaim the family room from this:
Which I really have no excuse for other than laziness at this point.
And wondering how the boys are doing in school after fueling up on this (as they do nearly every morning):
Which brings me to a question: what on-the-go kind of breakfast can you give two growing boys that doesn’t come from a package? All three of us pretty much crawl out of bed 1/2-hour before the bus arrives, so pancakes are out of the question. I’ve done muffins in the past, and that tends to work, but I’d like a little more variety in my repetoire…
Thanks in advance.
And, by the way, if you’re interested in admitting, too, that your life is not as well-manicured as your blog may make it look, head on over to Stefani’s new flickr group and join in the group therapy 😉
