It’s all good

My original To-Do list of things I wanted and/or needed to accomplish today:

  • Drive to county seat to renew vehicle registration
  • Schedule well baby visit for Erin’s two-month check up
  • Make bank deposit
  • Check with World Market on the status of my last living room curtain to be shipped
  • Wash one load of laundry
  • Tidy pantry (and by tidy, I mean overhaul.  Sorry, Mom, all your hard work last month was for naught – we’ve destroyed the pantry shelves.  Again.)
  • Make grocery list
  • Water indoor and outdoor plants
  • Balance checkbook
  • Write a blog post or two
  • Complete Esther Bible study for the day

What the list actually looked like at 3 pm:

  • Drive to county seat to renew vehicle registration
  • Schedule well baby visit for Erin’s two-month check up
  • Make bank deposit
  • Check with World Market on the status of my last living room curtain to be shipped
  • Wash one load of laundry
  • Tidy pantry (and by tidy, I mean overhaul.  Sorry, Mom, all your hard work last month was for naught – we’ve destroyed the pantry shelves.  Again.)
  • Make grocery list
  • Water indoor and outdoor plants (It rained!)
  • Balance checkbook
  • Write a blog post or two
  • Complete Esther Bible study for the day

HOWEVER, in addition, I was able to add and check off:

  • Watch Cars with Seth – with, not just having it on in the background
  • Play, with zeal, Thomas and friends all over the living room floor
  • Read a few chapters of a just-for-fun book
  • Nurse Erin.  Nurse, not bottle feed. =)  Only my second time.  Go, me!

My house is a “disaster,” I have yet to shower today, and I have no clue what is for dinner tonight.

But both of my babies have been lavishly loved on, played with, and paid attention to all day, and I’m pretty sure that makes the day a success.

Sounds like a highly successful day, my friend!

That's a LOT that you got done!! But, try as I might, I can't make out what book you're reading. What is it?

Sara said...

I'm proud of you...doubly proud of you for nursing...but you knew that, I'm sure. ;)

Kelly said...

Sounds like a great day!! Oliver is very jealous of Seth's train set!

I have to say it though...Erin in the Boppy on the couch...makes me nervous. I'm sure she's perfectly fine, but my mommy instincts want to move her back!!

your house looks loved in (instead of lived in).
