The To-Do List

I made a list this morning of all the things I need to do today and tomorrow.  So many things fell off of the priority list these last two months (including cleaning my house, ugh).  I often make lists for work stuff, but I don't generally do it for home tasks unless I have a lot on my plate.  I wanted to make sure I captured it all, so nothing got missed.  Pearl made a list too right next to mine.  Her squiggles look like more fun.  Hopefully I will have it all done tomorrow so Pearl and I can have some fun outside later this week.  The weather is supposed to be really nice here.
I wish I could set this list aside for a couple more days and head down to California with my parents.  My sweet aunt died last week and they are going down to help out and attend the funeral.  I'm too late in my pregnancy to make the trip and it's hard knowing I can't be there.  I take comfort in knowing that she isn't suffering anymore and is now celebrating and healthy again in heaven.  I just wish I could be there to support my family and to fully process her being gone.  It's hard to believe since I live far away and don't see her on a regular basis.  I am glad that a good percentage of my Oregon family is able to head down there though.
I will post photos from our little weekend getaway later this week.  Happy Monday to you all!


  1. haha I love #2 Bathe Pearl. I think I need to add that one to my list for Linden because it goes undone too long sometimes hahah

  2. I'm sorry about your Aunt! It is great that there will still be some support down there from OR and I'm sure they will send your love!

  3. Quite a list! I've had to sort mine to "to do today" and "this week or soon" in my Google Tasks lists! There's always plenty on both... but sometimes I take care of everything on the "today" list. Then I don't know what to do with myself.

    Good luck and congrats!!!

  4. So busy! Bath Pearl cracks me up. I was telling Jenni that the Portland Blogger picnic this summer- you will have your new little baby to show off :)

  5. there is just something about a list that makes me feel like i can tackle everything...maybe it is just the joy i get from crossing something off though, who's to say really :) good luck with this to-do list!

  6. Love the Pearl squiggles--very cute :)
    I'm sorry to hear about your aunt! Losing family is never easy.


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
