A Woman in her Thirties is Productive

For the past hour, both of my children have been sleeping.  Not one.  BOTH.  Considering I've been running on what can barely qualify as fumes for the last week (possibly the fumes from my hair, which hadn't been washed for a week before last night), you would think that I would have taken the opportunity to nap.  Or at least catch up on Intervention.

Believe me, it was tempting. But then I started to do stuff.  You know, stuff. As in the stuff that needs to be done if a woman in her thirties wants to participate in life.  And as I sit down to write this post, I realize just how productive a Mom can be when given a few precious minutes 'alone'.

Here goes:

Dishes- One load.
Laundry- One load (folded and put away, thank you very much)
Promiscuous Brownies- One batch for dinner with friends tonight
(sampled, to ensure quality)
Chicken Salad for lunches- One tupperware full
Floors Swiffered- Three
Counters disinfected- Two
Pictures downloaded- Ninety-six.  Don't judge me.  Here are some keepers:


Thank you notes written- Two
Bills paid- One
Bills unpaid thanks to Cigna's 'system upgrade'- Seven
Blog posts written- ONE!

  1. A mom can do in one hour what normal people can do in six. You are amazing. I made brownies today, too! Zucchini ones, though. Yours sounds way better.

  4. A friend of mine once told me, "If you want something done, give it to the busiest woman you know." She was right. I can't even write a blog post in an hour, let alone all that other stuff. You are amazing.
