Crazy Adventures in Parenting To-Do Tuesday

I feel like an overcooked turkey – dried out and brittle, hollowed by being left on too long. And despite no matter how much I want to salvage myself, and slather gravy on to try to make it better, I just need to start over, and need time to get it right.

This week (or so) I’ll be taking time off. I need a break. I need focus. I need to not feel like a burnt piece of poultry.

While I’m away, you will see fabulous guest posts from some amazing writer friends who were wonderful to accept my pleas for their brilliance here. I hope you’ll love on them just as you’ve loved on me. Just don’t forget to save some slobber for my return, okay?

*Roll up my sleeves, and fix it. All of it. I’m giving myself this time to take care of all the things I “haven’t had time” for. Besides, I work best when I’m in quiet contemplation, or angry (I’m an angry cleaner. Funny, huh?)
*Find sanity while away (if possible)
*Grocery shopping/print coupons/list for this week

Staying on my diet every day*
Work out on EAS Active More Workouts all week* (Last week of my 6-week challenge! I believe I’ll start it again as soon as I’m done!)

*Weigh in later today or tomorrow?

Today’s motivation – reading. I’m gonna get back to it, and with time off, I’m going to tackle projects, play with my kids, and read like I haven’t read in years (because, well, there’s a bit of truth on that statement. I really haven’t. Real people books, and not Dr Seuss, that is). Perhaps that’ll heal my brittle self a bit, too. When was the last time you read?

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 MckLinky 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!
