my list

I feel the need to list for you all the things I did today (so far):

(Perhaps I am desperate for an atta girl)
(Not perhaps...I am)


Here is my list:

1. Got big kids off to school.

The end.

Whew, I'm exhausted.

Hahaha, I'm funny.

Moving on...

2. Made potato salad for dinner tonight (before 9 AM)

3. Shredded the meat off of approximately 13 (count them)
chicken breasts that I cooked yesterday and divided them up into zip lock bags
and stuck them in the freezer for future dinners.

4. I intended to make chicken stock from the leftover
chicken scraps...but I just didn't have it in me this time.

*Are intentions supposed to make the list of accomplishments?
Probably not.

4. Milled some flour.

5. Made 2 loaves of cinnamon bread with above mentioned flour
(before it even had a chance to cool off from the mill...it was a magical experience).

6. Fried a big ol' mess of chicken for dinner tonight.
Big O' mess.
Family, you are very welcome.

7. Made a batch of requested (my dear K-man) Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.

8. Squeezed in a little bit of homeschool with Lucy.
I must admit, I slacked in this area today.
My apologies.
But that's the joy of homeschooling.
Lucy's reading is really starting to take off so I figured we
deserved a little break.
Yes, I am making excuses.
We plan to really hunker down after Labor Day.
That's my plan.
Yes it is.

9. There is no number nine yet.

But I still have to:

1. Make my bed (yes, it's nearly 3 PM as I write this)
2. Put my make-up on (yes, it's nearly 3 PM as I write this).
3. Go to Nick's soccer game.
4. Go to a meeting for Lucy's homeschool enrichment classes.


How's that?

I'm having my perk-me-up coffee as I type this,
so all is quite well with the world.

Talk to ya later, alligator.

**So sorry for no photos of the potato salad
and massive amounts of chicken, cooked in various ways.
You people really expect way too much of me.

**Actually, now that I read over this post,
it doesn't really look like I did as much as it feels like I did.
Why is that?

No matter,
it was a good day.

Atta-girl! :) You did a ton today! Maybe I should cook some chicken ahead of time and freeze it. Maybe tomorrow...

David and Janet Hurley said...

Good for you!! We did a light day of school today too; I couldn't handle it after a certain 6yo girl had a total meltdown.
Are the extra curriculars for Lucy your choice or required??
I want the cookie recipe--Please=). I used to have it, but lost it.

Nancy said...

Atta girl!!! I'm impressed.

Rachel said...

Just admit it...You used Shake-n-Bake! :) Really, a girl who mills her own flour would definitely make her fried chicken from scratch. (Get it..chicken...scratch?!!) I definitely need to go get some sleep!

Kim K. said...

I'm definitely impressed and feeling a tad bit guilty. On the way home from work, I swung by the grocery store and bought a whole roasted chicken for dinner. You cooked 13 chicken breasts. Seriously impressed. Atta girl!

Atta girl!! I'm super impressed! I think I might start calling you Betty Crocker, or Martha Stewart or Suzie Homemaker!!

Tony and Rett said...

When I grow up, I want to be just like you.

Really. I mean it.

Holly said...

I am duly, duly impressed, Girlfriend!! Don't think I've ever had a day like that. Ever!

connie said...

You WERE productive, my friend! Very impressive. And I wish I lived close enough to share a coffee and crinkle cookie with you...and maybe a hunk of the big ole' mess of chicken!
