Last year I tried writing an entire 31 day blog series about family matters. I didn’t exactly succeed. I had no idea what I was doing. I still don’t. I’m just more determined to follow through with this particular series. I still believe in putting my family first. I usually don’t post on Sundays because I’m giving my attention to my family. It may look like I’m playing Candy Crush Saga and perusing Pinterest but I’m really doing laundry and planning what meals we’ll eat for the week. Sundays during the school year usually also involve a trip to the grocery store.
I’m keeping today’s post on family matters short and sweet so I can get back to
my candy crush game and Pinterest to making sure they all have clean socks and underwear and something to eat all week. Here’s the quick list of the family matters I will complete this month:
- Make that home alone handbook for the boys
- Make a “mom’s at work/boredom” box for my youngest son. I’m undecided if this will be one item or two.
- Get the cats to the vet for their vaccines (hey, they are family, too!)
- Get the boys’ fall/winter clothing in order
I should have five things on the list but I’m drawing a blank so the fifth item will be a mystery bonus item. Actually, I should have 500 things on the list but the theme of the month is follow through so a list of 500 things would be setting myself up for failure. The main underlying theme of today’s post is to simply follow through on giving my family a bit more attention. Being more aware of their needs.
My follow through item for today was actually to get this post written and published. I’m also off to finish my laundry and watch my shows. G and I are watching Once Upon A Time and Resurrection together. I suppose the beauty of no cable television is that I don’t have to worry about our shows being preempted for baseball. Still, Go Royals!
What’s on your to-do list or television viewing list today?
