Wow, what a busy day, even though it may seem like you have not gotten ahead! No wonder my life with toddlers seems like such a blur now...

Barefoot,

It was a great relief when I did a Google Search to find that 'Moutain Dew' (we don't have it over here) was not a brand of US whisky!

It's not even 8 AM and I'm tired reading your list. I'd go take a nap, but I have a big Anatomy lab test today and need to get ready. Darn you for wearing me out first thing in the morning AND being so dang productive at home when I'm NOT!

Deb-
That's why I have a blog...if I didn't write this stuff down, I would never remember the things that happen every day!

Peter-
*snort, giggle* Yeah, Mt. Dew is the most evil and addictive of all sodas. Tons of sugar and caffeine to keep these weary bones a-goin'. It does sound like an alcoholic beverage, though. In fact, I do believe that years ago there were folks who made homemade booze called Mt. Dew. I would have to check on that one, though.

Lisa-
Don't worry, I will take a nap for you!

You reminded me why I can not work fast anymore and why I am so worn out from raising my own kids. Save some time for yourself. I use to think I had to be Super Woman in order for our home to run smoothly. I got over that when my kids were teenagers!LOL

Good God Woman, you're Super Human!! I can't even get that much done in a week!

(save the garage until it gets warmer outside though.....)
