I joke a lot about my lists. I have them for all things, the list on the fridge of stuff we’ve run out of. A list of creative ideas for a week, of what to clean, of anything at all. I’m a list maker. It helps me feel organized and on top of my life. And, like I’ve accomplished something. They can get a little out of hand, or maybe I get a little out of hand? One or the other. My in laws are coming in a few days and I have a list of what to clean/do before they get here. Welcome to My Brand of Crazy® This is what I have to accomplish by the time I go to bed Wednesday. – am crossing them off as I finish.

Sweep deck & front porch
buy new door mat
vacuum whole house
mop (magic eraser kitchen floor grout) (& clean baseboards)

Oh, and don’t stop running the house- pay bills, work out, go to the library, change diapers, cook meals, keep up with laundry, shower.
Anyone want to come over and help? It’s lots of fun. Loud music, dancing, diet coke and lots of hard work. And it’s always so worth it. I sort of love being this busy!
