My Mundane Musings

Growing up I longed for the fast paced life of big city life and corporate America. Now I’m a stay at home mom of 4 in a small rural community! And I wouldn’t have it any other way! (At least for now).

I’m completely overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done before Thursday – and we’re not even hosting Thanksgiving this year!  So what am I doing?  Putting it off until I absolutely cannot anymore – tomorrow.

And just so I don’t lose my list, I’m going to post it here.  Hopefully it will keep me a bit more accountable if other people can see what I’m supposed to be doing.  Hopefully.


  • clean off top of refrigerator
  • clean off dishwasher

    I’m overwhelmed just reading it!  If you can do all that today than I know I can get my much shorter list done.  In fact, family isn’t arriving til noon tomorrow and I don’t need to go to the grocery store so I think I can procrastinate and put mine off til tomorrow morning-lol!
