Follow up on To Do post

Life kicked me in the stomach this weekend so my to do list will not be completed by tomorrow but if I am lucky, maybe by Halloween. For all of you mamas out there that I love, I leave you with an inspiring read....entitled First the Babies at C Jane Run.

To Do Lists

Ha! I bet you checking in were thinking you were about to view pictures of my adorable littles....not so, not so.

I have been thinking a lot about to do lists this morning. It is amazing how some days I can accomplish so much....I am close to solving world hunger and the American health care woes and on other days I am absolutely pleased with myself if my kids were fed and clothed (or at least had clothes on for some part of the day....Tay is still a little streaker).

Today is Wednesday and I have exactly one week until October begins. The following is a list of things I want to finish before September runs out...

-paint the inside of the laundry closet
-put up shelves in the laundry closet
-post & and hopefully sell some things on craigslist
-install a hanging shelf in the garage
-figure out a home office area once and for all (this topic deserves its own blog entry)
-make a mei tai so I can carry Ashton around on my back (the hiking backpack just won't due for times like cooking dinner and scrubbing toilets)....or order an Ergo (nice but pricey)
-buy a new lense for my camera (currently watching a couple on ebay)
-update this stinking blog with pictures from the summer!
-attend the temple (planned for Saturday morning)
-make a few very important phone calls and appointments
-finish some research that I have been working on regarding a few health topics (also deserving of a separate blog post)

What do you want to accomplish before October begins?

Today Ashton is 7 months old...

Two months! I can't believe it has been two months since I posted last. Not good my friends. Not good. There is so much to write about that is is overwhelming to begin- the rest of our Boise trip, our adventure home to Virginia, end of summer delights in the neighborhood, how Ashton has grown and changed, Carter's very first day of kindergarten....and how Tay is coping with all of it.

As I write this, Carter is playing outside (which around here outside means the street) with a friend...with out a grown up might I add. Taylor and Ashton are taking their afternoon naps. I just had a bowl of cereal for lunch and I am looking around at my messy house thinking some one really should clean this up. When the littles wake up it will be time for snacks and outside play. Tonight Drew will be at soccer practice- he's coaching Carter's team- with Carter and Tay. Ashton and I will be at back to school night, then it will be bed time for all. I am still getting up with kids between 3 and 6 times a night...I am tired, exhausted, depleted. I am fog that drifts from room to room. Luckily it is mostly Ashton who is up. He likes his mama. I like him too. He is pure delight.

Please keep checking in my friends. I really do want to get this blog updated. I really do.
