Does it seem to you that life seems to get busier and busier? Sometimes it seems that each week brings greater challenges than the one before, making the months pass so swiftly it's scary.
I'm asking the good Lord for some extra help this week, for better time-management skills and stronger resolve to resist idleness when there's so much to be done!
Here's my list of To-Dos:
*As soon as the kiddos are up, fed, and dressed, it's off to Wal-Mart to buy ingredients for making homemade spaghetti sauce and pizza sauce for canning (can you still call it canning when you're actually 'bagging'?). I'm tempted to buy one of those sauce packs where you just add it to the tomatoes and you're done. Definitely not the all-natural approach, but a lot less work.
*Home to blanch and skin tomatoes, and start making batches of sauce.
*Knock out mountain of laundry we brought back from 'Bama
*Regular daily stuff (kids school worksheet time, Bible memorization, reading time, etc.)
*Fill an order for 20 hairbows (goal, by Friday)
*Clean out disgustingly disorganized laundry room (which I loathe to enter)
*Pick up check from consignment store, 20 miles away
*Attend court hearing in town two hours away on Wednesday
*Keep up with garden output
And all the other necessary daily stuff that has to be done!! Well, at least I won't have any trouble going to sleep at night :).
