Aging Expectations

Ruined Priorities

I love lists. I make lists all the time. Something about them makes me happy. I love seeing everything in order, everything prioritized. And, most of all I love crossing things off a list – I feel like I’ve accomplished something!!

This weekend, I spent a little time on my list. It is so pretty and perfect (don’t worry, I know I’m weird). I was excited to get started on it (really, to cross things off)! I even started doing some things last night. Oh yeah, I was on it!

Unfortunately, this morning (early this morning), my daughter woke up not feeling well. She has a slight fever and has been in the bathroom more than once. Right now, she is chilling on the couch watching Little Mermaid. I’m hoping she’ll fall back to sleep and get some more rest.

What this means for my list though, is, in a nutshell – devastation. You just can’t keep up on a good list with a sick little baby (at least I can’t). I’m okay with it. I certainly want to be sure my sweet girl feels better as soon as possible.

But, I am disappointed I won’t be crossing much off today…

Here’s to hoping everyone is feeling fine at your house
and you gain a sense of accomplishment
as you cross things off your list!

  1. Hope Leah feels better soon! I so know what you’re talking about…I’ve ended the last several weekends feeling exasperated at myself that I didn’t get more accomplished! This weekend was slightly better, and I’m motivated to get a lot done before the summer so I can enjoy it more! I even scheduled a Professional Organizer to come for a few visits to jumpstart the process, as despite all my best efforts, I really can’t seem to get it done on my own. 🙂 Have a great week!
