    Girl, please take this in the vein it was intended. I am 51 now but I was you with that list. My body is broken. I wish I had learned to say NO and slowed down when I was warned to. [​IMG]

    Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow.... for babies grow up we've learned to our sorrow.

    So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep.... I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.

    Your time with your children is but a blink in time...... and when they are gone, you will give anything to have just one more day. [​IMG]

    I will list, I am such a lister! It keeps me way motivated to be able to cross things off!

    *Get out and check out damage to garden that storms caused
    *Feed ducks
    *Clean kitchen
    *Fold Laundry (3 baskets)
    *Do a load of dishes & bottles
    *Make dinner (Gonna make a chicken salad, so easy!)
    *Run to grocery store when DH comes home
    *Run to Target to re-stock on diapers

    Doesn't sound like a lot but i'm potty training DS3 and have a DS who is a month old on my hip. Soo, if I manage to get his done I will really be amazed with myself. Maybe i'll be able to reward myself with some chocolate [​IMG] Now THATS motivation!

    I understand; normally I wouldnt be so hectic; but this week it HAS to get done; no putting it off...
    I have 15 or so ppl showing up at my house starting friday evening to get this outreach done..and I
    my house is littered w/nastiness due to me being down n out w/migraines/headaches the last couple weeks..
    so I'm dividing my days up into lists..todays list is huge; tomorrow; not as much..but I have to have it all done
    by wed. night..including the garage...
    because on thursday I'm packing my neighbors stuff up for the outreach and friday I have ppl coming over..and have
    to oversee it all..

    next week it will be MUCH calmer..this week; it just my hell week...but you are right...if I would keep going at this pace
    all of the time; I'll be broken too...

    I like the author unknown poem.. :) & thanks for your kind words!

    Are the kids helping with the trash, toilet cleaning, etc? They certainly old enough to be helping out, and it would really help you.
