 To do:

Monday morning after a busy weekend always brings the "to do list" front and center.

What's on mine today?

So glad you asked.

1. Breakfast of oatmeal, blueberries, and yogurt out on the deck in the early morning sunshine - Check

2. Take the boys on another walk (see picture in my previous post for the visual on how that works). -Check. We walked about a half mile again.

3. Find JOY in the middle of the laundry pile. It's gotta be there somewhere. - Not even started yet.

4. Vacuum all of the floors until all of that lovely sand from that delightful sand box outside can not be felt under my feet inside at all any more.  -Yeah,  I'll get to it at some point.

5. Sneak a piece of rhubarb pie that my hubby made last night. Check. ...But this one is so important I really should do it at least two more times. I mean really - I did take that walk. Pushing a 47 pound K and wearing an almost 18 pound Kai. Up some pretty big hills.

5b. Stop justifying bad behavior. - ...Whatever.

6. Pay cell phone bill that I have been thinking about for the past four days - but never actually did. - Um, yeah, really need to do that. Now.

7. Start schedule toilet training with K. - Partial check. In the midst of the beginning steps. I've read a couple of books on this. Apparently it is possible to toilet train someone who does not have the physical feelings which signal your body when it needs to go or has gone. Time consuming? Check. Intimidating? Check. Possibility that it won't work. Check.

8. Work with Noe and Jay on the fun and exciting adventures in alphabet learning. - Still to do

9. Come up with a filling lunch for three boys who are big hungry from much exercise. - Almost there.

10. Continue study of kinsmen redeemer.  - Once all boys are down for a nap and I have more than a few minutes to focus. Except that all of the boys no longer go down for naps. Just going to have to focus as much as possible. Hopefully more focused than I am right now.

11. Kiss my hubby in a there-is-no-question-he-is-very-loved kind of a way when he walks in the door. - Can't wait!

12. Get ready for work at The Center For Women - for the first time in 3 weeks. It has been too long and I miss it terribly! - Can't wait!

13. Be amazed and surprised by everything that God is going to do while I am volunteering. - As always, it's going to be good!

14. Crawl under my favorite red sheets, very exhausted, really, really fulfilled., and so ready for sleep. - Still to do.

What's on your list today?

This is a very good list!

Today I will be cleaning parts of my house that I can get while I am sure my little Cayman will be crawling behind me leaving a whole new clutter trail! :)

Working on more things for the start of my photography business.

And paying some bills.

Happy Monday!

I'm hooked on the "favourite red sheets" part! :) Not to mention that adorable picture of you all last post! You look like a super mom. I had to stop and just stare at the ages you were juggling and how cute you looked doing it. :) You are remarkable!!
