My To Do List


I love making To Do lists.  I used to do it all the time. Now it is pretty much survival mode.  Whatever happens during the day, I just call it good.  For the fun of it, I will make a To Do list for today.

To Do #1 (what I must do, or absolutely will do today)

  • Take Troy to school 
  • Make sure 2 out of the 3 boys get dressed today and brush their teeth.
  • Take shower, it's been a couple of days!
  • Get dressed
  • Host babysitting co-op
  • Do enough dishes to start the dishwasher
  • Feed everyone breakfast and lunch, (we'll see about snacks) and find something for dinner
  • Read books to the boys
  • Change diapers, wipe bums
  • Pick T Bear up from the bus stop (I forgot on Wednesday)
  • Listen to the Frozen soundtrack 99 times 
  • Put Little Grizzly down for a nap or two
  • Go bra shopping tonight (actually I am looking forward to this one!)
  • Kiss all of my boys and tell them that I love them
To Do #2 (what I would like to get done in addition to the must dos)
  • Clean the kitchen
  • Pick up the house
  • Make my bed
  • Do my hair and make up
  • Make some phones calls
  • Email people about Primary and Cubscouts
  • Call KK and Mom
  • Write Big D an email to tell him that I love him
  • Play board games with my boys
  • Take the boys out for a walk or to ride bikes
  • Read my scriptures
  • Listen to music other than the Frozen soundtrack
  • Email pictures to people that I have been needing to for awhile
  • Write a blog (we'll see if I publish this today or if I get interrupted)
  • Put Cub down for a nap
  • Do 1-on-1 reading with T Bear
  • Play with my baby
To Do #3 (what I would get done if I had awesome magical powers)
  • Clean my whole house
  • Exercise
  • Call, email, text a sweet note to my family and friends who I don't see or talk to very often and tell them how lovely they are and how much I miss them
  • Make some cookies
  • Come give Jane kisses
  • etc.... I'm afraid if I list more, I'll get overwhelmed with how much I don't do, so let's stop here.
Well, I think that gives you a pretty go idea of how my day will be going.  

Hope I get to talk to you today!  Good luck on your own To Do list today.  Give that Jane a kiss for me!

  1. So glad I made the cut and got a call from you. I need your phone calls :) The timing of this post has been amazing because I have just been trying to get back into making to do lists for myself because I need the feeling of accomplishment that I get when I can check off something, like "brush teeth" which must get done, and "take Nellie out to do her duty" and then the bigger bonus feeling if I get something optional done like "do laundry" (that one is only optional for so long). This post makes me feel ok that I am at least getting the must do's done most of the time, and that I am not the only one that has a dream to do list that I can't quite seem to get to. :) love you!

  2. Sad to say, but even now my To Do lists are mostly Hope To Do lists. Great Post!
