Game plan? Yes, please!

Happy Monday!

I am finally, FINALLY starting to feel myself again after bronchitis/pneumonia temporarily took over my life. How dare it come in the midst of the year's busiest season? As soon as Addie's birthday hits, we're off and running. So I'm glad to be crawling out of the dark pit of sickness.

We had a fun birthday celebration for the girls yesterday, and I hope to post a few pictures and stories soon. But now that that's out of the way, it's on to planning the next things and taking care of other responsibilities:
  • Bringing dessert to MOPS tomorrow
  • Getting Addie's costume finished for her party on Thursday
  • Making a costume for Emma's school party on Friday (oh my indecisive girls! This is a post all it's own!)
  • Making/sending Emma's party invitations
  • Planning Emma's birthday party (should I post about my victory over Chuck E. Cheese?)
  • Preparing for Gary's mom to come into town on Thursday
  • Shopping for a few baby gifts! Hooray! (oh! not my own... no rumors, please. I have friends having babies left and right!)
  • Edit Gary's paper that he's been working on all weekend long. It's due at midnight tonight. I hope to have it edited long before then (hint, hint... my sweet, handsome, hard-working husband)!
And these are just the out of the ordinary, immediate things I need to begin tackling TODAY. Not to mention the pile of laundry that only grew and grew in the last few weeks while I've been sick. And there's bills to pay this week. And the girls' bathroom upstairs?! Oh my word. I fear for their teenage years.

I hope I can get all of this done. I need a game plan. Lists, lists, lists!

I just thought I'd pop in and give a quick little hello. Brody's toddling all around the house right now being very happy, Addie is playing quietly with some dolls and my grocery list is ready to go. Better go now while I'm motivated!

Oh! But something FUN you need to know TODAY.... my friend Meredith is celebrating her blog's anniversary week all week long with a great giveaway EVERY DAY! Be sure to go visit Meredith's blog and leave a comment for a chance to win something fun!

Have a great Monday!


  1. Could you come make a game plan for me, please?

    I'm feeling better thanks to my miracle drug, but dang. I've often thought to myself, "Now why would you choose to curse yourself with morning sickness in the fall when so many things are going on?" (Of course, it wasn't really my choice as much as God's, but you know what I mean.)

    I tried to make a list this morning, but my energy is still so sketchy, I couldn't put deadlines on anything. I just wrote down everything that should get done this week. We'll see what happens.

  2. glad you're feeling better but if you push youself too much.....I'm just sayin'!

    TAKE IT EASY!!!!

  3. My to-do list is crazy this week. I sat down this morning and wrote almost a full page of stuff for each day this week. Ugh!

    The good news is that I can rest again in November!

    Oh Angie. I hear you on girls' bathrooms (and bedrooms) and changing their minds on costumes. It will be the death of me, I'm quite sure.

    Thanks for the linkage. Hope you've had an uber productive day!

    PS-I'll respond to your email as soon as this merry-go-round slows down a bit. ;)


Thanks for visiting! And thanks a bunch for commenting!
