Monday To-Do List

Hello everyone! Candy (see link) has urged many of us to post our daily to-do lists. I think that this is a fabulous idea! I love to "see" inside the daily lives of other homemakers.
It is afternoon (I forgot to post this morning) so this is mainly a list of the things that I have done already today. I will try to do better tomorrow!

  • up, start first load of laundry (5:30 a.m.)
  • walk with Sadie (cocker spaniel) for 30 minutes
  • bake blackberry cobbler for the boys' breakfast
  • shower,dress, etc
  • swap laundry in washer, hang out first load
  • check email
  • get boys up and fed
  • swap laundry and hang out 2nd load
  • greet dh (he worked a double shift) (7:50 a.m.)
  • vaccum living room
  • swap laundry and hang out 3rd load
  • check email and read 1 chapter from devotional book
  • hang out last load of laundry
  • go visit my mom (boys are already there) (8:45 a.m.)
  • come home, change clothes and go to library for pizza party (11:30 a.m.)
  • come back home, bring in laundry
  • have boys clean out van and feed the dog
  • fold laundry and have boys put away theirs
  • boys go to my mom's house again to play, I took a short nap and checked the blogs (2:00 p.m.)
  • boys are home, taking a bath, getting cleaned up. I am going to cook supper and we will eat and go to VBS tonight

I am glad that I was able to share a day-in-my-life with you :) See you tomorrow!

Last year my dh went to the dr and was diagnosed as having an accelerated heart was making him very tired. He was put on medication, but since he quit drinking mt. dew he hasn't had to take it. Maybe that is your dh's problem? The only thing that I can think of otherwise is he taking vitamins and getting plenty of sleep? My dh deals with work stress by leaving it at work. Sometimes when he first comes home he "unloads" on me about what was happening, but for the most part he just enjoys being with us when he is home. Dh has several hobbies that help him to unwind on his days off....all of them can be done alone or with the family. Dh's job is very stressful (correctional officer) but so far he has been able to handle it very well. I hope that your dh is able to find something that will help him get away from the work troubles at home.
