Meeting My Housework Muse Would Be Good Right About Now

If you're here for May Monster Madness, today's post can be found HERE.

After an insanely busy weekend, I have so much housework and other things that need to be done, I don't know where to start.  Seriously, how do dishes pile up so fast even when you're barely home?  Does someone break into our house for the sole purpose of dirtying my dishes?  And laundry.  Argh!

Oh well.  The plan for today is simple.
  1. Consume more coffee.
  2. Start laundry.
  3. Make lunch.
  4. Generally make sure the kids are looked after.
  5. Schedule some blog posts while the littlest child naps.
  6. Do any other housework I can fit in during nap time.
  7. Take kids to the gas station for suckers, then to the park.
  8. Make dinner.
  9. Do more cleaning while the kids create a path of destruction in my wake.
  10. Begrudgingly acknowledge the dishes.
  11. Put the kids to bed.
  12. Once the house is cleaned to my satisfaction, sit down to write.
That's a startlingly long list, isn't it?

Oh well.  In an attempt to procrastinate a little more, I'll share some pictures from this weekend.

  1. You just might pass out before finishing that list.
    And Lyle didn't even have to share that cupcake, did he?

  2. I'm overwhelmed just reading that list! Good luck getting it all done!

  3. Oh, I don't envy you, even if my list doesn't look any better. Cute little faces in the pictures. (Happy belated Mother's Day).

  4. So adorable! And lists always start out that long, but you'll get through it quick. You're so talented, and with that beautiful inspiration surrounding you! You've got it done!

    Yes, Happy Belated Mother's Day!

    Thank you for sharing -- brought a smile and happy memories to the forefront -- just where I needed them! :)
