Her eyes were bigger than her stomach.
Ever hear that expression? Well, my list is bigger than my day.
Here's what's on the table this morning. I need to have them almost finished by this evening.
Totally do-able. But the list doesn't stop there, nooooo. . .I've also got to finish 8 ornaments for our annual get-together with our bestest friends (which requires another trip to the printshop on account of I spilled paint on one and have to make it again) and wrap said ornaments (I wanna do something like THIS for the kids). Also, we're donating our refrigerator (we have an extra in the garage) to my brother who just bought a refrigerator-less house, so I gotta clean that out and make the swap. Then there's the kids' Christmas concert tonight, packing (Did I mention the annual get-together is out of town?), and the everyday chores that accompany motherhood. . .Inhale. Exhale.
Ya know, I feel better now that I've written it down. It actually sounds like a really fun day. I'd better get to it.

May all your To-Do lists be short
and your Fun lists be long.
