Monday Mania ~ Back to Reality

While I would love to just sit and bask in the glow of our Christmas tree lights,
I realize it is now Monday...and we have a much needed break from school...
and I have some much needed time at home.

So much has been neglected around the house.
June & July = moving mom to an assisted living facility
August & September = back to school/level four school improvement
October & November = preparations for Winterfest
November & December = preparations for the Holidays

I am so happy to have these few days at home.
I hope you all are enjoying some time to rest, relax and tackle the things on your 'To Do' list.

Take care,
~Natalie

I do know the feeling...I think my list would fill at least 3 pages. Guess you need to take one item at a time and squeal with glee every time you cross something off your list!

Try and enjoy some of the time you have off, but I know the list is calling your name!

Like you I am immensely enjoying the time off work! Today I actually slept in and then didn't get out of bed but instead starting reading a book! Wow...felt like days before kids! I have a "TO DO" list too....but first I have to reach my goal of riding 1,000 miles on my bike this year...I rode 45.72 miles today...a fun ride with my husband...then I will work on the list :)

I haven't driven my car to work yet this school year! That's another goal.

Enoy the remaining days off!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

If I look around the room I'm sitting in, I can see at least a half dozen little things I need to do. I always have a hard time getting things done when the kids have a break from school.

ALWAYS something to do...now I know how mom felt way back when I would say I have nothing to do and her reply was I could find you something.....

Romeo said...

A "to-do" list?! "She" has several going right now. Or "she" did. I ate them. Yep. And when I was full, I chased the others in under the sofa. Yep. Sure did. How's that for love?

Purrs!

Natalie--you don't know HOW to relax! I vote for maid service. Happy New Year--enjoy it until you have to go back to school.

I have one huge big "to do" list also! Seems like it is the time of year to revamp and reorganize. Enjoy your week!

Take a break and enjoy your time!!

Pam said...

I know. I have spent so much time this break doing all the stuff on my to-do list. I'm trying to remember to also enjoy it! You're right, it went way too fast.
