On my long, long to do list I have crossed off one item.
I have ordered a new battery for my laptop. A girl has to have priorities you know.
Other things that I have accomplished that were not on my list:
Load all garbage into the back of the van to bring to the dump. Arrive at the dump 5 minutes after it closed for the day.
Clean green magic marker off of the every wall that my 2 yr old happened to walk by while I was busy folding laundry and not keeping my eagle eyes on him.
Clean green magic marker off of all visible skin on the same 2 yr old. Lament the fact that he shoved the magic marker deep inside of his ear where I can not reach with a washcloth and now it looks as though he has some sort of green fugus growing there. On the plus side, the grandparents will LOVE it and it will give them something to talk about after they leave.
Throw green marker away in fit of anger.
Clean up broken snow globe from my ever dwindling snow globe collection. Perfect my martyr routine by whining and ranting about how I can never have anything nice.
Mentally berate self for acting like a toddler.
Superglue red glitter onto daughter’s red sparkly shoes. In process end up with a now glittery superglue bottle stuck to fingers.
Clean up my weight in paper scraps after showing the kids how to make these:
Because then they had to make about fifty of them. And because larger is better:
Their bedrooms are now very festive.
Dig green marker out of the garbage after it is brought to my attention that a green marker is essential for all Christmas themed drawings.
Look at original to do list and weep a little.
