SMART Habit Saturday

Any moment now Carl will get back from Scout Camp. We've missed him. Actually, the kids haven't asked about him at all. They are like that. When I'm gone they don't really ask about me, either. Oh well. I missed Carl a lot. He got to call for a few minutes on Wednesday but other than that, I haven't had any contact with him since Sunday.

I tried to use my time as wisely as possible this week. I actually did a pretty good job. It is amazing what I can accomplish at night when I don't have anyone other than myself to entertain. I also slept very little. I have a hard time sleeping while Carl is gone. Maybe today I'll get a chance to take another nap!


Cleaned up the toys downstairs
Dishes (this is HUGE for me)
2 loads of laundry
threw out a broken chair (had to do it while Carl was gone!)
cleaned out the refrigerator
grocery shopping
cleared off the kitchen table
took out a bunch of trash


Re-listed some items
I passed 50 sales this week!!!
Made 5 baby hats
Organized a meetup with the Lincoln Handmade etsy team
Started writing for Type A Mom.


Took two naps
Went out to lunch
Stopped drinking Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi
Found some games to download to my phone
Watched some movies (Marie Antoinette, Rent, and Memoirs of a Geisha)


I don't usually list what I do with the kids. This week we had a lot of outings so I thought I'd list the highlights:

Kung Fu Panda
Children's Museum (we rode the city bus to and from!)
Trendwood Park playdate
Lunch w/ Parker and Emma
Mahoney Park safari clue
Sonic Happy hour (about 3 days this week) for slushes

Did you work hard this week? Are you as tired as I am?


  1. Yes! I painted another two rooms and moved my boys all around. Why did I think it was a good idea to paint and rearrange my whole house?!

    Good for you for accomplishing so much! It's hard when Daddy's gone. I don't have young'uns underfoot anymore, but I cooked for elderly in-laws, did laundry, grocery shopped, did tons of cooking for us (from scratch), cleaned house, knitted (yay!), and read a lot.

    Rolled out of bed
    Picked my nose
    Finally got dressed for the day
    Tried to get something done
    Failed at getting something done
    Made the mistake or reading Christy's list of boring stuff
    Fell back asleep ZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    I never left Honey. I've been here watching the Lusitania sink one bubbling blurb at a time ... blubbb ... blubbb ...blubbb ...blubbb ...blubbb ...blubbb ...blubbb ...blubbb ...blubbb ...blubbb ...blubbb ...blubbb ...blubbb ...

    I just couldn't watch in silence any more.

  5. Wow, I'm impressed. My list of things to do while Nathan was on high adventure was long but unfortunately not much of it was accomplished. I planned on having a nice week to do what I wanted. I think we had a nice week doing what the kids wanted. Oh well, at least someone was happy - two someones.
