Making a list

I'm not a list girl. 
As I have stated before. 
But there are some days
where making a list and posting it outside for the
world to see would be fun. 
The list would look something like this:

Made kids breakfast
Made sure:
 all homework was in back pack
 lunches were made and in back pack
jacket in back pack, just in case

Kids dressed - check
Brushed teeth - check
Got everything in the car - made sure nothing was forgotten
Dropped off kids
Stopped by post office (sometimes target/grocery store)
Exercised
Put clean dishes away
Did a little Laundry
Made Beds
Took shower
Ate
Packed a snack for pick up
Picked up kids
Dropped of at activity (dance/softball/violin)
Ran a few errands on the way home
Went through back packs
Homework
Dinner together
Bath
Read before bed
Say prayers 
Kiss Goodnight
Help sooth, cuddle anyone in the middle of the night who needs it.

Sound familiar. 
I am sure I missed a few (a lot)

Thats what we do. 
Take care. 
Make sure. 
And we do a good job at it. 

So, to all those HaRd WoRkInG MoMs
No Matter If You Stay Home, Work from Home, Work out of The Home
Here is Something for You.

Hi Kristy, What beautiful pieces. You are so creative. I agree with Blankenship Babbles - when do you get all this amazing creations done. You are such a busy mom. Your daughters are very lucky you set such a great example of all they can accomplish.

I love making lists simply because of the joy & sense of accomplishment I feel once I cross it off!! Silly little trick on myself I guess.

This is a lovely giveaway Kristy!! My beautiful necklace (like the 2nd option) came yesterday and I LOVE it....it's already a cherished treasure. I received many complements on it at the boys school today. You are so talented...thank you!!

Genn said...

I am actually not much of a jewelry person. Maybe because of all the kids hanging and pulling on me. BUT I love the Loved necklace. Simple and gorgeous. And sturdy looking!
