I Failed at My Summer To-Do List, and I Couldn't Be Happier

Summer vacation is gone. Like, seriously. Gone. I remember in May, before summer even started, I wrote out my daily schedule that I was planning to have throughout summer, along with what all I would accomplish both personally and with my kids. ...more

Not Quite There But Working On It

I am over halfway through my second month of NaBloPoMo, and even I am not sure why I am doing this now! As with the last one, I have begun to tire of my own 'voice', even though I still have this compulsion to sit down and tap out my thoughts every day......more

Must-Live Is Your Best List

Summers are meant to be fun, easy, and fun-filled. Not about must-do lists but rather about must-live lists....more

Dear Jane

Dear Jane McGonigal: Thank you so much! Because of you, the coolest thing happened. See, I was going through a horrible, harried season in my life where chores, activities, and expectations, as they whirled around me like I was their bazillion-degree sun, pressed burlap bags of poky asteroid shards against every part of me. ...more


Wow, is time ever flying by!!  It's already May 9th...I'm back in school on May 28th!  I still have my financial aid to work on, supplies to obtain...I already feel like I'm running out of time!I have a huge list of things I need to get done during this short break.  I have that feeling which every woman knows of feeling that the faster you go, the further behind you get!...more

To-Do Hell!

Last week I mentioned how I've had to resort to a to-do list to keep up with life since I began college.  I looked around this morning and realized I have more than one list!I have my "real life" list for things I need to get done around the house, errands to run, and just life in general.  It's getting longer by the minute!  I do have to admit that things I thought were essential to daily life have now taken a distant second to getting my homework done!...more

Just Go With It

(originally posted @ My Day Job) Some days just don't go as planned.I promise I have been working very hard to get into some sort of a routine.  To get things back in order and get my home and family organized.  But you can't plan for the unexpected.  Sometimes something comes along that just throws a wrench in the works for the day; and you have to be ready to roll with it.  To go with the flow.  ...more

Strike While the Iron is HOT!

I am a list person.  I make a lot of lists with a lot of to-do's...And a lot of it never gets done.  Well, it DOES get done, just not in the timely fashion I would like.  Partly because of my procrastination (why do today what you can put off until tomorrow???) and partly because I just write down too much damn stuff to do!  Seriously, I have set the expectations for 24 hours in a day way too high. ...more

And Then What Will I Do?

I am typing today’s post with sore and battered fingers.  No, I haven’t smashed my thumb again.  Well…I did, but it’s OK.  I’ve been building fence and tomato cages today.  Finishing up my garden fence and building tomato cages was just two things on my lengthy list of to-dos....ContinueLanita Moss ...more
