13 things i have to do today!
no excuses!

1. run up to the store real quick and get milk for tommie's breakfast. what kind of mother am i? i should be there now, instead of blogging.

2. organize homeschool lessons today. it's "independent study" day. which means workbooks, workbook pages and review.

3. make a big bag of popcorn and a big batch of sugary kool-aid for my homeschool co-op class. i'm teaching "night at the museum," and have a fantastic movie on albert einstein.

4. organize things to sell at homeschool co-op. price them and find a good box to put them in.

5. finish some shabby chic projects (yep, i'll take snaps) cousin robin is taking them to a mammoth antique/vintage/retro show this weekend and plans to sell them for me. she'll be here tonight to pick everything up! thanks rob. i owe you.

6. clean my upstairs. everything has been dropped and plopped. you literally have to lift your leg up real high to step over stuff. it's making brad's ears steam and neck red. could be doing that now, except i'm blogging.

7. pick apples. okay, i think i'll send tommie out to do that.

8. pick end-of-the-garden vegetables and pop them in freezer bags.

9. make copies for my peter rabbit class, that i'm teaching at homeschool co-op. and groom the rabbit a bit... i'll be taking him in for the little kids.

10. tomorrow's my birthday!

11. clean my car. errrrr, maybe i'll have tommie do that too. makes him feel like a man.

12. dye my hair. my roots have done popped. my feet have been neglected, too. i need update my polish. a fall flavor. not a priority today, but would life my spirits everytime i look at my barefeet.

13. pack and ship that beautiful piece of roseville pottery i blogged about a few posts back. it didn't nearly bring in as much money as i had hoped, but, it will be helpful ($) for christmas shopping.

now, i gotta go get milk! smile, wink, nod.
