Up doing laundry until 2am.

Got the kids off to school.

Took a nap.

Supposed to be working.

Make tire appointment already.

Make chiro appointments.

Pay some bills.

Kids' homework.

Kids to gymnastics.  Walk while they play.

Kids to bed - finish that boring read-aloud!


Whatever I'm forgetting.

I need to compile my personal tax info and do my friends' tax return pretty soon.  Should do as much as possible on that today.

Mine isn't realistic but I can't see that until I write it down:



sweep floor

houseplant care

check independent work




Music history

Math lesson (if time permits)

fix ex-husband's computer


tighten ds' cornrows (if time permits)

save the world from imminent class warfare, ecological disasters, random meteors, alien invasions, zombie apocalypses, and other stupid stuff I don't have the power to change and only feel guilty about not fixing because of childhood trauma anyway so bla bla blah everybody's got problems

change sheets

I have a fairly (dare I say it) easy Monday:


Talk to insurance adjuster

Get some work related things done from home

Academic reading

Enjoy October which relieved us of that monstrous heat we had all summer

Have a piece of apple pie :)

Gas up car and run an errand

Plan dinner

Evening Group facilitation

Ds17 and I took the puppies to the vet for their latest round of shots. Once again, one of them got carsick and did something yucky in the back seat. Sigh. I need to get an SUV that can be sprayed out with a firehose. 


Still working away at today's to-do list.


Dh and ds18 are at a work meeting so dinner will be late tonight.

I have excellent taste in ex-husbands: the computer will be fixed tomorrow. I wish I could say the same about the ultimate fate of the human race, lol.


Kid aced his math test and no houseplants died anyway.
