Today has been a bit crazy. I haven’t had tons of commitments or anything, but I really wanted to make the breakfast pockets and participate in Freezer Cooking Days at Money Saving Mom.
Not a problem, except that it’s also Tuesday, my new day to clean bathrooms.
Not a problem, except that just yesterday we got notice that my kindergartner was to have an awards assembly this morning at school.
Not a problem, except that I completely forgot until I was in the drop-off line, irritated at the parents going into parking lot instead of the drop-off lane and slowing things down. And then I remembered about the assembly. I remembered it while wearing green sweatpants and a t-shirt that doesn’t really go with green sweatpants.
Thankfully, I had almost 40 minutes before his assembly and could run home to put on matching, non-pajama-type clothing.
So, all of these little things added up and made the day more hectic than I had planned for it to be.
I’m thankful for my daily checklist. And I’m thankful that Tuesdays are bathroom cleaning days.
Why? Because these days happen more often than not. And in my pre-blog/pre-housekeeping plan days, the last thing on my mind would be sweeping the kitchen floor or cleaning a toilet, even if I had thought that I would do it that day. And then it might be days, or more likely weeks before it occurred to me to do those things again.
As it was, I made the dough, cleaning the kitchen and sweeping while the yeast got bubbly for 10 minutes, and then cleaned bathrooms and showered while the dough was rising for 45 minutes.
So, today I have:
Cleaned up kitchen.
Did a small pickup time.
Took a hot shower because bathrooms are gross.
Made breakfast pockets to freeze. (see next post)
Last night I:
Cleaned up kitchen and ran dishwasher.
I’ve lately neglected the tasks of making lunches and putting out clothes the night before, and I ALWAYS regret it the next morning.
