Crazy Adventures in Parenting To-Do Tuesday

Well, if you haven’t already been reading, hubby is gone and the house has gone completely looney-tunes. I’m keeping myself quite busy chronicling this time while he’s away.

The good news? Hell has already begun, so no need to worry about what it will be like. Even better news? The countdown until his return has already begun, too, so thank goodness for that.

The bad news? Doing it all by myself. I feel so broken down already. I want to raise the white flag, and yet, I can’t. 24 more days of this, no choice.

So, pardon me while I lose my razzafrackin’ marbles for a bit, mm’kay? {sigh}

*Doctor’s appointment for my thyroid this morning. Fun times, friends.
*Prepare for my savior to arrive tomorrow (aka newly hired cleaning lady. Wahooo! More on that later)
*Try NOT to want cower in the closet when the kids kick my will to live out of me by making me repeat commands to them over. And over. And over.
*Purchase plants for “holes” in garden & finish back corner. For realz this time.
*Research desk/organization options for “spare” room, as project while hubby’s away. Like I’m not already too busy.
*Water lawn & plants everyday.
*Walk with the family every night weather and behavior permitting
*Continue cleaning out stuff, reorganizing & selling/donating to help alleviate some room
*Grocery shopping/print coupons/list for this week (So afraid to go shopping by myself this week without hubby)

Staying on my diet every day*
Work out everyday using Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones, Wii Fit, EAS Active More Workouts, Yoga and walking*

*Even though my weigh-ins with the Shrinking Jeans ladies are over, I will still weigh in on Wednesdays for myself

Today’s motivation – Survive. It shouldn’t be difficult to take one breath at a time, to put one foot in front of the other, but some days are more trying than others. Perhaps, focusing on the small, seemingly insignificant things will help me realize that perhaps my troubles aren’t as bad as they seem. Baby steps.

Last weeks goal: Finish the garden (not done, hubby left, no help for me)
This weeks goal: Definitely DEFINITELY finish 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 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!
