TOO MUCH! Really overwhelmed right now.


So far:
Breakfast for the sleepover crew at my house.

Ballet sleepover pick up.

Take everyone to the apple orchard to pick apples. FUN! Corn maze, free apple cider, sunshine. We picked over 100 lbs. of apples.

Help ds' friend with his weekend homework.

Made rosters to record choir uniform measurements.


Taking a short break right now to unfrazzle, because in all of that, all the things have gone wrong. Dropping things, people at the door when I'm in the middle of, can't find things. I managed to break a glass, a plate, AND chip dh's favorite bowl all in one go, and cleaned it all up, and now the toilet is clogged, so I get to go take care of that.


In progress right now: Canning the first batch of yesterday's tomato sauce.


Still to come:

Unclog the toilet.

Choir grant meeting.

(Skipping my book club meeting because I just can't. do. everything. So disappointed. I really enjoy going.) YAY! I had it on the wrong day on my calendar! So I didn't miss it AND I didn't show up on the wrong night. WIN.

Choir emails for middle school and high school boys' choirs.

Finish canning the tomato sauce. Can the tomato juice. I think I've got 2-3 more canner loads total, depending on the amount of juice.

Make an apple pie. (Dh made the pie crust for me when he walked in the kitchen and I was nearly in tears over the broken dishes.)

Fold the laundry I didn't get to yesterday.

Grade ds15's papers that he turned in on Friday.


Pie-in-the-sky task (no way I'll get to it, but I'll dream):

Make a batch of tomato jam while all of the canning stuff is out anyway.

I want everyone to know that I suck at chess.


I suck so bad that it took me like an hour to checkmate my 9yo who has never played before and doesn't even know all the moves.  She was begging me to put her out of her misery and I was too dumb.


I did have a strategy to do it sooner, but I got distracted and forgot what I was going to do.


On the positive side, it won't be long before both of my kids are slaughtering me and gaining tons of confidence.  :P
