30 Minutes in the Day of a Stay at Home Mom

Go to the closet with a few shirts and Jason's dress pants.

Drop pants on the floor so that you can hang up the shirts.

Dig around for a few empty hangers.

Hang up shirts, then remember you really should get something started for dinner.

Go to the kitchen, open the cabinet and decide to make chili for dinner.

Head to the can opener and open a ton of cans and dump them in a pot.

Put the pot on the stove, then remember that Henry's lunch for tomorrow hasn't been made yet.

Get out all the lunch making supplies {bread, peanut butter, chips, carrots, pudding, and a capri sun}.

Ask your oh so well behaved children to please stop being so annoying....or least be a little more quiet while they are being annoying!

Finish making Henry's lunch and stick it back in the fridge.

Check your email, then remember that there is another load of laundry in the dryer.

Grab the laundry basket and head to your room to fold some clothes.

Come back to the kitchen to stir the chili and notice the pile of dirty dishes that need to be loaded into the dishwasher.

Load dishes, then remember that you didn't finish folding that last load of laundry.

Stick your head in the living room to make sure that Eli is holding his own against his big brothers.

Again, ask beg your children to stop being so LOUD and annoying...briefly consider that a small strip of tape would quiet them down a little...then reconsider, because you could get in big trouble for that that is something you would never really do!

Go back to finish folding the laundry and then put the clothes away in the closet.

Look down and realize that you left Jason's dress pants on the floor more than 30 minutes ago!

Sometimes I feel like I am just running in circles and getting very little done! Please tell me I'm not the only one who has days like that?!?

Not Me! Monday


Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

********************************

Jason and I did NOT have a junk food free-for-all last week in an attempt to get all the junk food out of the house! We are NOT starting a diet/exercise plan today with the hopes of getting in better shape and losing some weight! I did NOT get on the scale this morning to record my start weight with the plan to lose a TON few pounds before my 30th birthday in June!

There is NOT still a {HUGE} bag of M&M's in the cabinet that is seriously going to test my will power for the next few weeks! I am NOT considering calculating how many Weight Watcher points are in a handful of M&M's just in case my will power loses!

I am NOT just a little excited that Christmas break is over and we are getting back into a normal schedule today. I did NOT enjoy sleeping late and being lazy for the last two weeks....but I also did NOT miss my normal routine:) I am NOT hoping that getting up early gets easier as the week goes by!

Playing With Fire(works)!

We had a blast celebrating the New Year!
Jason built a bonfire.
The boys did fireworks {mostly sparklers}.
We had a yummy junk food dinner of Pizza Rolls, homemade potato skins, and green beans:)
Then we made and ate M&M cookies for dessert!
*************************** Henry finally realized that fireworks {especially sparklers} can be fun instead of scary!
Grant wouldn't be still long enough for me to get a good shot!
Eli wanted to join in on the fun too!
{We were safe while we were playing with fire(works)...Jason is holding Eli, and his hand is right below Eli's...I just cropped it out of the picture.}
