Mommy Checklist for the Day

This is a bit embarrassing, but this is the status quo of my living room right now.  Hurricane Jonah and Jessie have torn through and after a weekend of non-stop events, I have to put the house back in order.  I know moms understand me, but life is a never-ending checklist.  I hope to get through all of these items today, but it's probably wishful (and slightly delusional) thinking. 

But, I do well with pressure and when something/someone keeps me accountable, so I'm going to list the items I would like to get done today and make it visible so that I can come back tomorrow and say that I've done them.  Here's my checklist.

1. Dust the living room
2. Wash and PUT AWAY 4 loads of laundry (the put away is the hard part for me)
3. Wash the kitchen floors.
4. Cook dinner.
5. Soak some vintage clothes.
6. Photoshoot of at least 6 items today.
7. List at least 5 items in the shop.
8. Pack and ship items.
9. Vacuum.
10. Pick up and drop off some dry cleaning.

After listing my to do list for the day, I don't think it's that bad.  I realized these are all do-able if I didn't have 2 little ones to take care of at the same time. Ha. Any unusual things on your checklist today?

Wish me luck.


  1. Motherhood is the hardest job that no one gives credit to. Yes, our living room looks similarly messy after our toddler ransacked through. Good luck completing your checklist. And remember to take some time to rest.


  2. you're a super mommy, hope you complete your to do list soon! Take care!


  3. i love the honesty of your post here. I often feel exactly the same and make list upon list of my to-do's! I sometimes give myself a little treat once i tick things off my list (chocolate normally helps me lol!)

  4. Thanks ladies! checklist is pretty complete! and yes, I eat chocolate EVERYDAY! :)
