Trying Traditional

My list today includes:
1. blog post on making cider
2. teaching 5 math lessons
3. washing the laundry that has been sorted since monday (see your a step ahead of me!)
4. finding a peaceful moment to review last Sunday's teachings


There's always a list!
1. laundry (there's also always laundry!)
2. clean out fridge
3. clean bathroom
4. find living room carpet (it's somewhere under all the toys and miscellania)
5. wrap my Girlie's birthday presents


Revise for midterms!


figure out what's for dinner
clean out fridge (so I can figure out what's for dinner)
go help a friend for a couple hours--she just had her 5th baby!

So looking forward to the last thing on my list!

I love it when I don't have a think on my calendar! :) Today I
Took the dog for a walk
Folded one load of laundry
Went to the eye dr. with my oldest daughter.

Trying to take it slow and easy! :)

Lisa @ The PW

I am always impressed when someone can get their laundry put away with the same week they've washed much less the day.

And your list is more than I get done in a whole week.

I need help Joanne. :))
