A Wasted Day

On Leave from work, to be home with the munchkin on the ‘teacher work day’, I had big plans. Here is what I planned on doing:

1. Check out a local Christian School
2. Check out a location for Summer Camp
3. Prepare a document needed for work
4. Mail a book to my dad
5. Put away laundry
6. Interview a sitter for that 2 hour gap on Mondays
7. Make a meal plan and go grocery shopping.
8. Catch up on the bible study I am behind on.

What I did:

1. Mess with the blog
2. Read blogs and email
3. Walk the dog
4. Make homemade potato chips with my daughter
5. Mess with the blog.

What I still have left to do:

1. Give the girl a bath
2. Put away laundry
3. “Take Home Reading” with the girl.


  1. Ok. So I understand making lists and doing something totally different. Then I’m overwhelmed with the fact that I still have a long list of things to do!

  2. Although it’s not what you planned…..doesn’t sound like a wasted day to me! Oh and…are you thinking of private school again?

  3. oh i LONG for a day like that one !
    i’m with gwen. 🙂 all that business about “the best-laid plans” only applies to mice and *men*. women, i firmly believe, should be allowed to change plans by reading blogs.

    and btw – homemade potato chips? excellent. i hope you had fun making them.

  4. Can you email me? I know this is going to sound ridiculous but I was cleaning out my inbox and I erased your emails. After all this time…….I realize I don’t have your email address memorized because I always go to an old one and hit “reply!” LOL!!!!! I’m embarassed to have to admit this to you!!!! LOL!!!!!
