Crazy Adventures in Parenting To-Do Tuesday

Wow kids. Wow. Where has 2009 gone already? BlogHer is next week! The countdown is majorly on, and there are things to be done! I recall thinking to myself July is so far away and now it’s here and just about half gone! Wow!

And you know what else? School starts here in a month. A MONTH! When we come back from BlogHer (and hopefully visiting family), school shopping, preparations and such will begin! Wow!

How did your week go? Are you ready to take on another week? If you’re participating and going to BlogHer, what’s on YOUR list this week to get ready?

GET HAIR FIXED *cough* (wish me luck, appointment today) √

*FINALLY GOT OVER MY PLATEAU, thank you EA ACTIVE!! Will post new weight Wednesday morning from Wednesday Weigh-In for ShrinkingJeans.net GO TEAM FUCHSIA!

Today’s motivation – don’t let the heat get you down. This is the hottest part of the summer, and as horribly hot as it may be for you (because God knows it’s horrible here), remember to drink plenty of water. Don’t let it spoil your fun – break out the ice cube trays and make some flavored ice cubes with juice for the kids! Or even better, visit a Walmart or Target and get an inexpensive ice cream maker and try your hand at making your own! Not interested in all that work? Buying a quart or two of your favorite flavor is fine, too. But be sure to stay cool, just be sure to have fun while doing it!

Would you like to join us this week for To-Do Tuesday? Start with just a few things. Don’t over-do it your first couple of times. You’ll grow to become a list-a-holic later, start small now, though, k?
Just so you know, you can join us at anytime, it doesn’t have to be on Tuesdays – the list will go up every Tuesday for you to link to, but you can make your list and link to us at any point in the week!

Remember, with “To-Do Tuesday“, we’re attacking our to-do lists each week, blogging about our lists and what we’ve got going on, and sharing it with each other to help keep each other accountable. Everyone should come back here to link up in the Mister Linky as the central “To-Do Tuesday Hub” so we can visit who’s participating and offer encouragement to each other throughout the week. Don’t forget to add the “To-Do Tuesday” button to your post, linking back to this post!

Let’s continue to cross items off our list as we go and help support each other in completing our lists! Don’t forget my useful HTML tutorial on how to effectively “cross-out” or √ “check off” your items on your to-do list!

Joining us? We’re using a new linky alternative called MckLinky! Please add your link below (to your To Do Tuesday post, and not the main page of your blog)
