My productive morning

I've accomplished a massive list of things this morning and I feel the need to brag about it to all of you so you can say, "She's super mom, I can only dream of being that motivated and productive." First, lets pretend two things...1. That my house was not a complete disaster during task accomplishment and that it is not still a disaster right now and 2. That Matea was not strapped into a car seat in the middle of the play area for much of the morning (her choice, Bella got a new car seat and they were playing "car").

So, here's my day and keep in mind, it's only noon:

1. Empty dishwasher and do dishes
2. Chop up ingredients for carne con chile dinner
3. Bake a pumpkin pie
4. Paint all trim work in hallway and bathroom
5. Pick up miscellaneous clothing items strewn about the house
6. Make a tomato and basil pasta for lunch
7. Pack a cool bento snack for school for Bella
8. Ship two packages
9. Vacuum
10. Bathe children
11. Get a snack cup stuck in the garbage disposal (not really a good thing but it did eat up a lot of time so I felt it should be included)
12. IM'd Crafty Papa most of the items on this list so he would pat me on the back and make me feel proud

Did I make you feel bad about your pathetically unproductive day? Don't feel bad, I can promise I won't do anything remotely productive for the rest of the week.

YOU SUCK! :) Seriously, sitting here at work 'dreaming' of all the things I could be getting done at home! LOL!

Where did you get your bento boxes, etc? Can you post pics of your 'lunches'??? TIA!

wow - i'm impressed - that's like, 2 meals already in 1 day. i'm lucky to prepare one lousy meal a day, by 8 p.m. at night. (sigh) anyway - keep up the good work and thanks for the inspiration! :-) what's carne con chile? sounds yummy!

I feel better knowing that you've done all you'll do for the week already.....

Heehee...that last comment was funny. Yes I feel pathetically unproductive. All I did today was a bunch of half-jobs. Ugh.

Man, pumpkin pie sounds good right now.

That WAS a very productive morning! I am VERY impressed : ) Every once in a GREAT while, I will have a day like that. Hasn't happened in a while though and when it does I am usually whipped for the rest of the week lol
