- I've been meaning to make this DVD for my sister for a month and a half now. I'm the only person who has her SKG conference on tape, and can I remember to get it onto DVD for her? NOOO!!! (So take heart, sis, I haven't completely forgotten!)
- My closet is an absolute wreck! I've been meaning to clean it out all summer, but it never happened. At this point, I think I'll just wait and clean out all of my summer clothes soon and put my fall clothes in nice and neat.
- My freezer also needs some help. I always clean out my fridge before going to the grocery store, but for some reason, the freezer often slips my mind. Honest. I'm not lying. So, my poor husband opened the freezer door the other day and an ice tray tried to decapitate him. Fortunately, he was quicker than the ice-tray, but I think maybe I should clean that freezer out now...
- Printing my pictures. My (gulp) hundreds of pictures. I have a bad habit of putting them on the computer, and forgetting to print them! We are currently working on sorting through them, deleting the ones we don't want, and getting them sent to WalMart to have printed. This could take a looooong time! I'll be ninety-two and finally getting these pictures back. "Oh look, Joel, here's you and I when we still had teeth!"
But, I can't be completely negative. I have managed to get a few things crossed off my 'list' recently.
Like taking all of my plastic grocery bags to the recycling center. Those of you who saw my milk jug post-----this was ten times worse! I couldn't even see out my passenger side window in the car because of all the bags stacked there! I decided to be smart, though, and have bought myself a dozen re-usable cloth grocery bags. I did have to pat myself on the back for that idea ;)
Or, let's see.....okay, so maybe that's the only major thing I've accomplished lately, but that means maybe this week I can get started on that DVD for my sister before she disowns me. Or cleaning out that freezer before my husband has a major accident.
I guess I've just learned to figure that by the end of the day, if I've loved my husband and children, brought them up in the way of the Lord(my children, that is), and provided a nurturing, loving, safe environment for my family(minus the falling ice trays), then I have accomplished all that I am called to do, and the rest of the things will get done in their own good time. (At least, that's what I keep telling myself. But it's hard to sleep when that messy closet is calling your name...Jaime! Jaime!)
