What was I thinking?

I don't know what happened, but I've gotten behind on my sleep and my to-do list. It always happens when I have a weekend planned where I know I won't get much work done - housework or work work.

Then, in all my mommy brilliance, I told the kids they could paint. On top of that I had to braid hair (like you saw in my Wordless Wednesday post) and they got to watch movies today so I could braid in peace. I had a couple of blogging assignments and one I still need to get to.

No, I didn't put paper down to paint, I didn't supervise and I put them in front of the office door so I could pay attention and work. It worked out pretty well except for the part where I had to clean up. (I also took it as an opportunity to clean the floor... well, partially because I only cleaned it really good in that one area.)

It didn't take too long. Amareah, the 4 year old, helped the most... BUT I'm not finished with braiding hair, I still haven't done the post, it's time to pick up the toddler from daycare and the painting supplies are still in the bathroom sink "soaking."

I'm not going to lose hope though... I'm sure that if I don't add anything else to my list for the rest of the week I can get everything done. Keeping my fingers crossed.

UPDATE: I didn't finish this post before I had to leave and get the toddler. The hair is mostly done - still some beads need to be added in the back.


  1. Wow a busy day!!! I'm sure you'll get to it all just try to relax and do your usual wonderful job!!! Hope you have a great rest of the day and week.

  2. Have I taught you nothing?

    Painting is NEVER a good idea when you're too busy to keep an eye on what's going on.

    Oh dear Pet. Seems I might need to come visit and help you get all caught up.

  3. Your mind must be on the weekend and all the plans you have made to RELAX. But you are a good mother that will find a way to get everything done before its time.
    Have a good CLEAN weekend. Do the things I would do on a weekend off.
    Much Love Big L
