At least that's what I tell myself.
But church was fantastic, and I'm now ready for the week, if not really so much ready for the cleaning I need to catch up. Well, it's better than I was when I got up. That's for sure. But I really need to still my mind (enormous feat actually), and while the kids are napping, it seems like a good time to do it. Time to get ready for the week, make some plans, and wish to high heaven there was a fence up in the backyard, so the kids could play out there and I could tidy up and plan a bit longer. But a trip to the playground should be fun, too.
Things to accomplish today (some of which aren't going to happen; let's be honest):
Blog Plan for Week (As opposed to my usual by-the-seat-of-my-pants approach.)
Clean Kitchen & Bathrooms
Meal Plan for Week
Have Rose & Leif Tested for Anti-Nap Virus (Just kidding. They're just driving me crackers in their room playing at the moment.)
Bake Bacon and Pecorino Scones by Gabriela at What Liberty Ate (Recipe: Scones with Bacon and Pecorino)
Take Kids Out for Serious Playtime (If they ever actually nap, but alas, they are still talking, and Leif actually came in crying to me a minute ago, because he'd apparently fallen out of the top bunk goofing off, and after confirming nothing was seriously injured, I got to balance kissing and cuddling with I TOLD YOU SO. It's one of the perks of being a parent -- countless allowable I TOLD YOU SOs)
Choose Cookie Recipe (because gasp! we're almost out of cookies)
And Whatever Else I Can Think Of In the Meantime
Okay. I need to stop myself. I always plan too much. And how many hours are left in this day. Jeepers. And I'm sitting here, typing away like it's the only thing I wanted to do today. It's like, if I had half the brain God gave a goose, I'd stop and get stuff done. But am I? No.
Yep, still typing.
Okay. I'm going now.
Nope still here.
All right. Really now.
