To Do or Not To Do

I have the luxury of 6 hours during the day when my boys are away at school.  This is my main crafting time, as well as the time to get all of my other mom work done(volunteering & planning for school parties & functions, etc.)  The problem is that with 6 hours at my disposal, it's easy to get pulled into an internet vortex.  Whether it's falling down the rabbit hole of one click leads to another beautiful image or my own personal weakness - shoes.  To keep on track, I write lists.  Lots of lists.  They don't always work.  Here's yesterday's list.

I create laminated roster cards of WD's lacrosse team every season.  It makes it easy for fans to cheer the kids on when they have a card with names and jersey numbers.  I print out the game schedule on the back side.  A local reader loved my Spring Wreath, and wanted to buy one, so I needed to make another, and I have a big furniture building project in the works.  I've drawn it up, but need to make a cut sheet for buying wood.

Here's what actually got done during the 6 hours of freedom.

So, it wasn't an entirely successful day, but I did make that wreath this morning.

Thanks for popping in and wasting time with me.  For printable versions of the super cute To Do list, visit Mom and Wife.

Fridays Unfolded


  1. Rats--I just wrote a comment, and then it vanished! So I will try again.

    I ♥ how you listed spending endless hours looking at shoes on the internet--too funny! You crack me up! :)

    I am the queen of post it notes, and have them all over the house. If it doens't get written down on a post it note, then it doesn't get done!

    I can't wait to see your wreath. I just bought some stuff yesterday to make one too. Now I need to find some time to sit down and get it done!

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. LOL!

    I always do better with a list too. Otherwise, I'm exactly the same way (although probably blog visiting, room makeovers and Pinterest instead of shoes). ;)

    Have a great weekend!

  3. hahaha! Loved that! That's about how my plans work.

  4. Ya know I would skip the whole list and head straight to the bottom of the page, that's the most important memo if you ask me, just sayin' I also have someone asking me why you are laxsupermom when LAX is here on the west coast. Curious and super nosey!!
    Take care..


Finding your comments in my mailbox makes me all tingly inside, so thanks for commenting!
