What Will You Do While Kiddo’s in School?

 

1st Day of Kindergarten

1st Day of Kindergarten

Beth started Kindergarten in public school today (after I homeschooled her for 2 years and held her back a year). Now I have a staggering 3 hours to myself every week day morning. About everyone I know has asked me what I will be doing with “all that time.” Well, a lot of things have fallen by the wayside, so the options are endless. Maybe I could…

Use one of these…

 

…to clean this:

Sample of crap stuck to my floor

Sample of crap stuck to my floor. Stretch goal: clean the floor more than 1x a year.

Use one of these…

shovel

to shovel out this:

Sample of crap on the floor of my car

or this:

This was once my pantry

This was once my pantry, and it would like to be a pantry again.

Use one of these…

The little used dresser

My neglected dresser

to store these:

Hey, maybe I will score a couch too if I put the laundry away.

Use one of these…

dust mask

to dust my house (since I am highly allergic to house dust….no, really I am):

Representative dust sample

Or I might get really crazy and use this…

gas mask

to tackle that pink smelly stuff in my shower:

Ewwww....

No words for this, but “Ewwwww….”

Did I make any headway on the above on this first day of school? Nope. Nada. Zip. Instead I did this…

Envelope stuffing for school with other moms who weren't ready to let go

and this…

Go me. 3 mile walk in the park while fielding texts and phone calls from concerned family members and friends. Yes, I am fine…

Forget the housework. Sure I will do more than I have, but I am focusing on connecting with friends and working towards a healthier me. That trumps Cheerios on my car floor and pink moldy stuff in my shower any day.
