Pregnancy-brain, aging-brain, adult-ADHD, early onset Alzheimer’s (I tease, but sometimes I wonder…), call it what you want. All I know is that I need a list.
I love lists, usually.
Love ‘em, or hate ‘em, I need ‘em. Especially lately.
It always seems like I have 101 things I still need to do on any given day, but, no really, this week’s list just keeps growing…
- Evening soccer practices for Liberty & Grace
- Get Grace’s sports physical paperwork signed
- Take “school pictures”
- Schedule appt w/neuropsych (Ian)
- Schedule appt w/fancy eye doc (Ian)
- Schedule Occupational Therapy re-evaluation (Ian)
- Schedule Speech Therapy re-evaluation (Ian)
- Schedule Physical Therapy appts
- Make Ian a new exercise checklist
- Bring Ian in to hospital lab to check counts
- Order Ian’s homeschool curriculum for his change-of-plans-senior-year
- Refill allergy & asthma meds prescriptions for the girls
- Finish this month’s menu plan. No, really, finish it.
- Costco run, with a list!
- Make some phone calls for things I’ve been putting off…
- Get next week’s homeschooling printables actually printed & ready to go
- Schedule Hope’s monthly check-ins with her OT (We had some great sessions this summer, coming up with a list of strategies to keep Hope more on task and on track in her schooling, and we’re cutting back to monthly sessions to touch base through the school year.)
- Talk with Ian’s oncologist about the next chemo round being his last
- Talk to oncologist about Ian’s 1 yr follow-up with radiation doc
- Get planning Radiation Vacation Reunion Trip (Indiana, we miss you!)
- Write more thank-you notes
- Plan a meal for a friend’s family
- Don’t forget to go to mid-wife appt
- Keep sorting/cleaning/organizing bookshelves
- Find someone to take away our broken piano
- Sweet-talk IT Guy into bringing our new-to-us-used piano home
- Follow-up on place to donate hair to actually go towards cancer patients
- Schedule 3 girls’ haircuts (the 3 oldest are excited to try on some short hair, and to donate their locks. I chopped off and donated about 18″ of my hair last summer, and they’ve all asked about it many times since…)
- Work on notes for a big project
- Expand the detailed cleaning lists & assign semi-permanent chores, we can discuss changing them up after they’ve been long-mastered (I need them to pitch in more, things have gotten lax…)
- Help IT Guy finish painting the entry
- Get paint for bathroom
- Get paint for basement family room
- Continue organizing the pantry
There’s more, I’m sure of it, but that’s enough to start with, isn’t it?
Well, there are math lessons to guide and spelling lessons to teach, and a toddler & preschooler to constantly occupy. And then there’s that list…
So, I’d better get to it!
What’s on your list this week?
