VBS (Vacation Bible School) started today.
So fun. So exhausting.
My goal is to survive this week. To survive, I need focus. So I stuck to the basics and checked off the in-my-head version of my daily checklist.
After a short nap, I:
Went back through the bathrooms and kids’ rooms after they had brought me “ALL” their dirty laundry. And found quite a bit of dirty laundry. Grrr.
Re-loaded the dishwasher that Hubby had kindly unloaded for me when he came home for lunch.
Washed the random can’t-fit-in-the-dishwasher dishes that were left.
Wiped down counters.
Started on the laundry.
Swept the kitchen.
Did a 2 minute pick-up. (Not as good as a five-minute, but better than a no-minute.)
Once all this was done, I was much more motivated to cook a good meal. Amazing how that works.
Oh, and I went grocery shopping. Which may not seem like much . . . but it was. Just ask my formerly-starving family.
Now, if I could just convince my family to go clothes-less for the rest of the week so I could go ahead and pack the clothes I’m washing today for our trip.
