#1 Tackle It Tuesday: Stuff

I've never done a Tackle It Tuesday before. However, because I am overwhelmed by the things I need to get done today, I will list them for my own benefit.

A. Call the transmission place and beg them to get to the van before Friday. Last time it took them forever and I will be in a panic all week waiting to hear how much of our Disney vacation fund is going to be depleted. Call done, they will actually be able to look at it today.

B. Go to the transmission place to retrieve my driver's license, church paycheck, and several severely overdue library books/CD's that were left inside. Signed the form, people heard th e"rattle" but didn't feel the" jut". Supposedly will get to it tomorrow.

C. Go to the library to return above items and pick out come easy readers to keep Noah reading. Done, picked out so many books that the bag broke on the way out.

D. Tomorrow is Noah's last day of Kindergarten. Mrs. S. has been a good teacher for him this year. He has had many ups and downs and she has weathered them all. So today we are off to find her a flower as an end of the year present. The biggest tackle will be to get Noah to write a heartfelt message on the inside of the card. Got a pretty daisy plant and a balloon.

E. After a weekend of playing outside and MANY little filthy feet tramping through the kitchen, I need to sweep and mop every hard surface in the house. Mopping done. I love the mop I got a little while ago. We have been through too many to count. Thanks to Diego, I was able to let the floor dry before the boys ran across and messed it up again.

F. Laundry, laundry, laundry Didn't get even one load done

G. Get to Verizon to find out why my somewhat new phone will not stay charged for more than a day and I have terrible reception everywhere I go. Steve got the same phone at the same time and hasn't had a single problem. Didn't get there...maybe tomorrow.

H. Piano recital is on Sunday. I only have six out of 24 students performing but, in contrast to past years, they are not ready. So lessons tonight will probably be pretty high stress. Tonight's students are ready...big sigh!

I wonder if I had made a list like this last Tuesday, maybe I wouldn't have dropped the ball and forgotten to put the extra music for this past Sunday's service in the bulletin. I got docked $50 for screwing it up. I think my brain is becoming more addled in my old age (I'll be 35 in four days).

Happy Tuesday everyone.

Wow! It looks like your list is almost as long as mine! I'm a piano and voice teacher, too, and we had our recital last night. Needless to say, the house has suffered in the last week!

Make a done list soon...

you are moving forward and that is AWESOME!

(Only 35?--my dear hubby and I were talking the other night and we couldn't figure out how old either of us was--or is---hahaha I know the year I was born, but my hubby was having a tough time remembering his birth year! LOL!)

You still have your hair in your head, and you aren't crying on the floor-- Sounds like you are doing JUST fine!

Have a great day.

Sorry, I'm putting my comment(s) in list form. Bear with me. :)

1. I'm so glad that they'll be able to look at the van sooner. Still keeping my fingers crossed that it won't be a big or costly fix.

2. Yikes, I need to start thinking of teacher gifts too. I never know what to pick out.

3. As the mom to some of those filthy feet - sorry! :) If it makes you feel any better - my kitchen floor looks much worse, but I've been putting off cleaning it for so long now that it's so much worse of a job that I can't bring myself to even try. Does that even make sense?

4. I hope they can figure out what's wrong with your phone!

5. Um - 'old age'????? Who are you calling old? ;)

PS - Happy birthday a few days early! Are you going to be too busy to go out Friday night to celebrate? Maybe a raincheck? :)

Didn't even try to do anything about Tackle It Tuesday...so you are way ahead of me.

I love that you measure your finances according to how much is coming out of the Disney fund. We do the exact same thing!! I hope that it isn't much to fix the van. Sending you some *~*~*~*~pixie dust*~*~*~*~*!!
