The List..

My list of things to do today somehow keeps growing. Just as it does on most weekends.
Our morning routine on the weekends goes something like this: I wake up(sometime after the boys do of course) and sneak into the shower while no one appears to be "needy" of anything. I get dressed and venture out into the abiss of the livingroom; which by now has all the pillows on the floor, maybe some clothing,and of course toys. I give Nick a sippy cup and that will usually last him until I get the dishes done and make breakfast.
Breakfast is two waffles with syrup. If we are out of waffles, then our day is already off to a bad start. Nick loves waffles. Pancakes are a suitable substitute, but anything else is met with uncertainty and whininess. I also fix breakfast for Michael. Sometimes he wants waffles too, sometimes cereal, sometimes just bacon will do.
Then we hang around the house for a couple of hours. I am trying to catch up on laundry-so the washer is usually running all weekend. Depending on the weather, I take one of the boys on any errands I might have just to spend a little time with each of them.
Today I need to do a few things. More laundry. Go to the grocery store. Go to Safeway-they have bigger containers of Rice Milk, and lunch size containers. Clean our bedroom, clean the toilets, and straighten up the house a little. I might take little Mr Sunshine with me, he likes to go places and seems to have fun no matter how mundane the task is.

The Oldest is like that - makes sunshine wherever we go. I rediscovered this over Christmas Break.

I hated sending him back to school. Errands are so boring without him. I'm positive Youngest echos this sentiment.

Good luck with the list!!
