Things I Do

Things I have taken on, in reverse chronological order:
  • Leading the Kindergarten Daisy Troop
  • Helping the Girls' Teachers (as-needed, at school)
  • Co-Leading the First Grade Daisy Troop
  • President of the Neighborhood Association
  • Writing a Book
  • Two Food Co-Ops, one of which I'm leading
  • Blogging
  • Raising a Young Family
  • Working for BJ/helping run our small business
Additional projects I can take on right now:
  •   (this space intentionally left blank)
Things I need to spend more time doing:
  • Exercising & Counting Calories (I did walk to and from school today, and BJ and I walked to lunch!)
  • Writing - especially that book (I have cleared the 5000 word hurdle, it's a start)
  • Cleaning (either that or we're going to have to start naming the dust bunnies)
Things I have spent less time doing in order to have time to do all the things:
  • Sleeping
  • Watching TV (not that I miss it much)
Things I wish I had more time for:
  • Sleeping
  • Reading
  • Watching the finale of True Blood (I'm 30 minutes in and I keep getting interrupted!  Can't exactly watch it when the kids are up...)
  • Cooking (no kidding.  I really enjoy cooking)
  • Playing with my kids (instead of just doing my thing and being near them while they're playing)
  • Being with my extended family (miss you!)
  • Being with my friends (miss you!!)
  • Dates with my husband (miss you most of all, Scarecrow!!!)
Things I'm doing a pretty good job of:
  • Staying Organized (so far, knock wood)
  • Keeping busy while the girls are at school
  • Maintaining morning and afternoon routines with the girls
  • Making lunches and choosing clothes for the girls the night before instead of in the morning
  • Juggling all these new responsibilities 
Things I'm looking forward to:
  • Bedtime
  • This Weekend (SPOONS!)
  • Any Weekend, Really
  • Seriously, Is It The Weekend Yet?
