Mark this one down.....

I was working on some house chores yesterday and really going through lots of paper work and loose ends. You out a junk drawer stuffed with all my "I'll get to that later" junk. I called the insurance company, called in a prescription refill, sorted some recipes to try, filled in my calendar, collected some free meal coupons and put them in my purse...and I even cleaned out my purse. I was on a roll. Then, it hit. The "sleepys" settled over me and I really didn't want to do anymore. My poor brain kept telling me to get moving...but my muscles had a mind of their own. So, what could a gal do? I asked (BEGGED) my son to run to Starbucks to pick up a mocha frappucino for me....and I offered to buy him a coffee, too. I don't know if it was the free coffee or a bit of a sympathetic heart looking at his pitiful, tired mama, but off he went to Starbucks.

I sat and relaxed a little bit while sipping on my frappucino. Oh my goodness, what a miracle beverage. Next thing I know I'm out in the kitchen cleaning out cabinets, doing more dishes, and......LAUNDRY!! Now do we EVER get to stop doing laundry?

Earlier this week, K made a to-do list for the day and she wrote "finish laundry". I had to gently break it to her that that was actually impossible! I looked at her list later in the day and she had scratched off the word "Finish" and just left laundry. It was a little sad, but she is now old enough to know that it doesn't ever stop! Yep, LAUNDRY is a word that is on EVERY single to-do list I have ever written as an adult (and I write lots of lists).

Anyway...back to my frappucino buzz.

So, here I am working on tossing clothes in the wash, moving things to the dryer, folding clothes and putting them away. Suddenly.... a glorious sight appeared before me! I had to blink and rub my eyes to see if what I thought I saw was really there. I even pinched myself...ok, just a teeny, tiny pinch...but enough to know I was indeed awake. I shouted for Kristin to get the camera!! She ran....while I stood guard to make sure it didn't disappear.

I managed to capture the image and I'm considering having a poster made.


So, today I made a to-do list......laundry is on it.

I knew it was an image that would quickly fade. Thank goodness, I managed to mark this one down.

My hamper was empty for about 2 hours yesterday afternoon, and I thought of you. When Mike put the first dirty shirt in there, I almost cried. LOL

It never lasts long at my house either... :-(
