I have found that if I do not make a daily "To Do List", I am not nearly as productive with my household responsibilities. I often jokingly refer to it as "Housework ADD". How many of you can relate?? Please tell me that I'm not the only one that suffers from this??.....
Thankfully, I've found that the solution is to start my day off with the Lord, create my daily To-Do list and then start checking off each item (I find great satisfaction in checking off each task)!! A weekly chore schedule has also proven to be invaluable for me, for there is just NO way that you can accomplish EVERYTHING in one day (trust me, I've tried). :-D
We all stay busy, but the infamous "To Do List" can be your best friend! Try it out! With this being said, enjoy the little story below, I believe you'll get a laugh!
I'm off to keep checking things off my list!
IF YOU GIVE A MOM A MUFFIN...
If you give a mom a muffin,
She'll want a cup of coffee to go with it.
She'll pour herself some.
Her three-year-old will spill the coffee.
She'll wipe it up.
Wiping the floor, she'll find dirty socks.
She'll remember she has to do laundry.
When she puts the laundry in the washer,
She'll trip over boots and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan for supper.
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She'll look for her cookbook ("101 Things To Do With a Pound of Hamburger").
The cookbook is sitting under a pile of mail.
She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow.
She will look for her checkbook.
The check book is in her purse that is being dumped out by her two-year-old.
She'll smell something funny.
She'll change the two year old's diaper.
While she is changing the diaper, the phone will ring.
Her five-year-old will answer and hang up.
She'll remember she wants to phone a friend for coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her that she was going to have a cup.
And chances are...
If she has a cup of coffee,
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.
THE STORY OF OUR LIVES!!!!!
