RF: Today's To Do list

I have one meeeeeellllion things to do before 5 pm today when the kids and I pack up and go back to Rapid City to see some friends (and do a little work at the old house so the sale goes through!)  Would you like to see my list? Yes?
  • Watch my 2 month old nephew (in addition to the Princess and the Bug) until 3. Go pick up the Pirate at three. Watch all 4 children until 5. My nephew needs a blog name. 
  • Ignore that I sometimes used the number (3) and sometimes wrote it out (three) with no regard for grammar rules. This whole post ignores every rule of grammar and outlines. Go with it.
  • Do at least one load of laundry so that there are clean work clothes for Mike on Monday morning. (He'll be joining us in Rapid City tomorrow night, it's a crazy weekend.) This means finishing the laundry already in the washer and dryer.
  • Pack for the kids and I. The Princess needs a lot of stuff.
  • Empty the car. 
  • Fill the car with gas.
  • Find some snacks for the car ride. This is a hard one, as I have two babies in bucket car seats AND a (almost) 3 year old. Going inside a store isn't really a good idea. Thank god for Coolers Drive Thru.
  • Do a minimal amount of cleaning, including the litter box.
  • Try to squeeze in as many work hours as possible. Most days I try to work three hours. I would be happy to work one today.
And now, Random Thoughts:
  • The sell of the house looks like it's going to go through! Yay!
  • We move one week from today (ok, one weekend from now. But it starts on the first.)
  • I still believe I'll be ready. I am more ready than I was a week before our last move.
  • I have some pictures of an adorable baby in an adorable mama-made dress to show you- but they are on the camera and my camera cable is at Mike's office.
  • It is supposed to snow this weekend. I'm done with winter.
  • We planted some herbs in one of those window greenhouse boxes you get for five bucks. They are sprouting! I have the best idea ever for planting them in a container garden after we move. Cross your fingers that it's as cute in real life as it is in my head.
  • The Princess has figured out that she can move if she tries. She isn't crawling, but she scoots on her butt and makes decent progress across rooms. I am SO happy to be moving to a flat house.
What I Read This Week:
  • Dash & Lily's Book of Dares  by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. Finished it! Look for a buddy review (my first!) on this one.
  • All I Ever Wanted (Hqn) by Kristan Higgins. It's marketed as a romance, but seems much more general chick-lit to me. I'm enjoying it a lot. I couldn't get into the author's Too Good to Be True so I'm happy to like this one.
Other bookish notes:
  • I checked  Lolita out of the library on audio. I had to request it from ILL! And then I realized that I am never without my children and probably they should not listen to it.  No idea when I'll get to hear it.
  • I also got Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins on ILL. Really looking forward to that, but have four other books on the go and don't want to add it in.
From the Library:
Ok, gotta get to it to do it! have a great weekend!

  1. Wow, my head would be spinning if I had all that going on. I had to check out the link to Coolers - what an awesome concept!!

  2. I am so sorry I haven't added to our buddy review! Mind has been elsewhere!! I will get better, promise! :)

  3. LOL-my head is spinning as well. I hope your weekend goes well. I can't wait to read your review on the One Coop book.

  4. I shall now shut up about what I have to get done this weekend! Glad to hear that the house sale is going through; I know that will be a big relief. And a flat place will be great as The Princess grows. We moved into a two story when Miss H was less than a year and a half and the stairs scared me to death! Don't forget to squeeze a few minutes of Me-time in every day!
