I was also talking to another mom at preschool the same day. I mentioned that more than sleep, which is at a premium this week since both the kids are sick, I would love to have a week to finish all of the little projects that haunt me and my house.
Here are a few things that are on my list:
- Mow the lawn
- Attach the rose bush too the trellis...again!
- Finish sorting through the baby/toddler clothing
- Finish getting my names and addresses into one phone book
- Plant my flowers, beans, and tomato plants
The thing is that my kids are little, which hampers progress right off the bat. Sometimes I can get them to help with some of it, and that can be fun or hell, depending on the day. But most of the time they want to run around, bike ride, go to the park, snuggle, read, paint, put hats on and be silly...
and I realize that this will not wait. And then I will have a nicer garden and my house will be organized again.
Childhood will be over before I know it.
