088 - Goals & Objectives - A blog only a mother could love

Today I have several things I need to get done. I even wrote out a list, just so I wouldn't forget anything... and it keeps getting longer. But instead of doing any of those things, I'm sitting on the couch listening to the sound of my neighbor mowing her lawn, and watching Point Pleasant. I've never seen it before, but sort of like Wolf Lake, it intrigues me (and they're having a marathon). I'll have to DVR it so I can break away from it. How sad am I?

So far I have cleaned the kitchen, taken out the garbage, moved the recycling off the counter into the bin, and ordered blinds to replace the ones in my bedroom. The pull cord that raises and lowers them broke this morning, so my room is dark and gloomy (they're roman shades, there's no other mechanism to control the light). I also ordered a flapper for my toilet. After two unsuccessful trips to Home Dept, I finally gave up and made sure I was getting the right part. Also on my list? Return flapper to Home Depot.

What I'm putting off is emptying the cat litter, cleaning the bathroom, and mopping the floors. I also want to clean out my garage, but probably won't. My main goal is actually to clean the area around the work bench, and take it down. Whoever built it left a 6" gap between the work bench and the wall and I don't know why. I'd rather get rid of it and put up a shelving unit. And there's a bunch of crap I should get rid of altogether, but I'm not ready to tackle that yet.

I put off the most ridiculous things, and maybe writing them in my blog will shame me into doing it, like changing the registration sticker on my car. It expired at the end of September, so I need to do it before I get pulled over... And it probably wouldn't hurt to vacuum my car out while I'm at it. And check the oil. Yep... gonna jump right on that...

After I start the grill and cook some of that leftover jerk chicken. YUM!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!


  1. Ooooh, I'm a beast. Dishes are being cleaned as I type, car has been vacuumed, bathroom has been cleaned, and the floor is mopped. (yea Kristy!) Thanks! lol (this is what happens when I get stir crazy)

  2. Just now reading this, trying to find stuff for the awards. If there was a "Oh shit, I'm the only one who commented....twice...on my own post" award, you'd win for this one.

    I'm dyin LOLing over here!
