To Do Tuesday

Crazy Adventures in Parenting To-Do Tuesday
"To Do Tuesday" is 1 year old today.....
HaPpY BiRtHdAy to you, HaPpY BiRtHdAy to you

I haven't done a To Do Tuesday list in a couple of weeks.... I feel so out-of-the-loop.
Last week I did start the post, but then my son's school called about 15mins after I put him on the bus to have me come pick him up. "Mrs VanDeusen, this is the nurse at Southwest School Thomas threw-up on the bus."
Man, did I feel like crap. He told me that morning that his stomach didn't feel good, but we both thought it was because he had eaten Reeces Puffs cereal for breakfast. (I love chocolate and peanut butter just as much as the next gal....but for breakfast? yuck) whooops... well he forgave me a lot sooner then I forgave myself.

I have been in this horrible "funk" lately. I can't find the motivation, energy or desire to do anything more then I have to. It seems like the everyday chores of laundry, bed making, vacuuming, cooking and everything else we do on a daily basis is too exhausting. I mean Jeez, I haven't had the freakin energy or desire to write down all things I want to get done (even knowing damn-well they won't get done!) I went to the Dr. today and she gave me some "happy pills" we are hoping it will boost my moods and help lower my stress induced high blood pressure.

This week I am really going to try very hard to push through this funk and get to the other side.... So to help with this goal, I will have my son's 17th Birthday Party here at my house (we usually do birthday parties at my mom's house, it is a more central location for the rest of the family) His Birthday is Feb. 28th, which falls on a Sunday. (that gives me 12 days to get my ass in full-on "company is coming, panic mode")

Here is goes......
  • finish my "bill paying" organizing project
  • paint my bathroom
  • clean out my dresser in bedroom (also the mess of magazines on floor next to my bed)
  • get hubby to fix the hole in the wall in our hallway (don't ask!)
  • return the recyclables (soda cans, water bottles....etc)
  • finish buying gifts for Nick's B-day
  • do some decluttering of cabinets/drawers
  • major cleaning and decluttering of both the boys rooms
  • stay on diet, drink water, count points, Wii Fit (need to get back on track of my goal "lose 40lbs by my 40th Birthday" and now I am down to 15 weeks to lose 34lbs) *sigh*
  • keep on my blog posting/reading/commenting (only 4 more posts til 100th) anybody got any ideas of what I should post about?

I think that will do it for now.... If you want to get in on the To Do Tuesday list making madness, go check out Lisa at Crazy Adventures in Parenting and link up.

congrats on the birthday a great way to deal with magazine is tear out the articles you want put them in a folder or binder for later reads and then recycle the magazines helps reduce the clutter

Aww, I'm so sorry you've been in a funk. Are you taking Vitamin D, by chance? Go out for a quick walk daily, in the afternoon sometime. Combo of fresh air, day light and movement will help. I promise :)

My list was late today, I am so behind! Been doing SO much, omg. I'm smoked!
