Today's 'To-Do' List

1. Wake up with hubby, make him breakfast & coffee, send him off for his day of work. Go meet the neighbor for our morning walk, where we solve the world's problems and laugh at our attempts at being the 'perfect' woman.

2. Home to make breakfast for the boys and start them on their chores and schoolwork. Have profound talk about the importance of a work ethic.

3. Walk through and clean up the house and start a load of laundry. Okay restart the load of laundry.

4. Get the chicken out to thaw for dinner tonight. Find the recipe I had decided to use and start talking myself into how much I enjoy cooking these days.

5. Sit at desk and completely fall apart for all the things I have to do in the office today....

** Set up website for company.

** Call and order this year's advertising in phone books.

** Continue and finalize getting quotes for company insurance coverage.

** Continue and finalize getting quotes for family insurance coverage.

6. Promised boys waffles for lunch. But know that if I make them waffles, that salad and leftover greens I had saved myself for lunch, is SO NOT going to be sounding so good anymore.

7. Library books are due today, so that means, I'll actually have to get dressed and make myself 'not scary' looking and go into town. UGH!

8. Maybe (hopefully) be able to go to the Pastor's study tonight at the new church we're trying out. But with all the sneezing and hacking going on here, probably not going to happen.

9. Clean up dead and half eaten bird that the dog decided to leave in the garage floor for me. Yes, I realize this is something that the cat was suppose to do for us, but no, our dog is very confused and thinks it's his role to kill small innocent animals....don't get my started on the bunny he had one day (sorry mama).

10. Transfer laundry so it doesn't get all yucky smelling. And won't have to run it through the washer a fourth time. (Yes, the same load has been in there since Saturday!)

11. Do a Blog Post so I don't get any nasty emails, just kidding girls, you know I love it. This is a complete waste of time, but much more enjoyable than all the other things on the office to do list.

12. Oh, yeah, and homeschool the boys. Who am I kidding, they school themselves! I like calling myself a homeschooling mom because it makes me sound very busy and important when really it's just something I say so that my sister-in-law doesn't accuse me of laying on the couch and eating bon-bons all day.

Note to self: add bon bons to grocery list, we are out.

I better get started and those waffles aren't going to make themselves. And all that syrup will give me a sugar rush and help me get my stuff done today. Yes, I'm aware that I've probably bitten off more than I can chew with this list. What's on your 'to-do' list today?
