-Do the dang laundry
-Find my kitchen counter ... and the table ... and the foot of my bed ... and ...
-Find two hours where I can go and buy my daughter a new wardrobe. Nothing in the 2T size range fits any longer and her shirts are becoming belly shirts.
-Tie the quilt that I volunteered to finish (someone should glue my mouth shut)
-Finish the month's worth of paperwork I'm behind on
-Pay my bills before they shut our power off
-Take Emily to the park once every day so that she doesn't lose her mind
-Survive the ten days that Jason will be gone
-Try not to be bitter that Jason is gone for ten days - backpacking - while I'm home with this to-do list
-Remember to eat at least two meals a day
-Find a pair of pants that actually look good ... and that don't elicit the 'oh you're pregnant' comment from people who should know better than to ask such a thing.
-Get liposuction so that people won't ask about my 'impending pregnancy' in the future
-Or keep exercising like I've been doing ... even though I'm dead tired at the end of the day
-Okay it was just one person but still...
-Decide if I'm going to respond to the email from the New York Times reporter
-Learn 15 new signs so that I can teach Emily 15 new words
-Learn the names of the Bubble Guppies (oh my stars - you thought my child loved Mickey Mouse? We've taken that love to a whole 'nother level with Bubble Guppies)

You get the idea - my life is insane right now. Amazing how it's the same level of insane every single April and May. (The joy of owing a garden center.)
Let me share my current favorite picture of Em - oh I love this girl!
(And PS. I really won't be bitter that Jason is gone - it's something he loves and I'm happy he can go. He will just owe me BIG time when he gets home.)
