Grounding Myself - Priorities Amuck

"Mean, old Mommy!" I can almost hear my husband say... something he always says when I discipline the kids and take away a priviledge or toy.

I am grounding myself from the blog for a bit... I have a list of things I have to get done that will not wait a minute longer. But while I check my list off, you are most welcome to read this little essay about redeeming your time! Taking my own advice has always been a hard thing for me to do... so I'm glad I have you to keep me accountable. :)

1. Checkbook/bills (paid what I could...)
2. Menu plan for next week (Check my foodie blog for recipes!)
3. Plan my next KONOS unit
4. Grade three stacks of school papers (recorded papers and sorted them, have to sit down and grade over the weekend...)
5. Update my calendar and dayplanner
6. Do umpteen piles of laundry and put away (how is it that I have as much laundry again as I did before I started?)
7. Figure out where to unbox and store these school supplies (rather than the corner or hallway)
8. *forgot to add this earlier* Spend time with my family today!

Don't let me post in here until I'm done. I give you full permission to yell at me in ALL CAPS if I try.

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND and I'll hopefully be back in Sunday night or Monday to X off my list and post something fabulous. Until then, have a good time reading the wonderful blogs that are linked in my sidebar!

Thanks for the small essay, very ... timely, I must say, especially for me.
As usual, your posts are worth gold.

Take care.

Sponsored links are paid for by a company who wishes to improve their Google ranking, but I always check to make sure these are reputable sites and never allow any links that are questionable to be placed.

The links in my "Sweet Linkage" section are either sponsored links or personal links that I find interesting (including the links to the blogs that both of my teen children run).

I occasionally run ads on my blog in exchange for money or traded advertising, or receive products in exchange for a review or giveaway posts. I also participate in campaigns by brands that offer to pay me to write about their products after using them. Any post that is sponsored will be noted as such. All opinions expressed on are my own, and any review, give-away, sponsored post, graphic ad, or product that I mention or link to are ones that I believe are reputable and worthy companies.
