First Day of baby bites

Today I start listing and hopefully accomplishing many little bites on my way to tackling my elephant sized tasks for the month (which, by the way, are 1. translating the VBS program into Spanish for our VBS that takes place the first week of July, 2. Put together a video slide show on the computer which must be done by May 29, 3. Sew costume for #2 son who is the King in his school production on May 20, 4. Find and organize old credit card statements to fill out my form for a return of the large foreign exchange fees they charged us back in 2002-2004 for a "class action suit" that we were mailed. That must be done by the 30th so I can mail it from the States when I go at the end of the month 5. Pack and plan for friends to watch the kids after school during the few weeks that I will be away in June.)

Today's goals:
1. Translate for 30 minutes solid or the first Primary lesson, whichever comes first.
2. Call the states and find out the answers to some info I need for the slide show.
3. Measure son for his costume.
4. Find the form and create a file folder to start putting the statements in as I uncover them.
5. Nothing on this today -- I must empty out the large entertainment center that we have been using in our bedroom for dresser space since we are giving it away and I think they are coming to pick it up tomorrow night.

These things will be fit in around the other activities that must be done today:
1. Paint sets for the school play 9:00 - 10:30 am
2. Call insurance company and open claims and make appointment for the adjuster to be at the body shop tomorrow when I drop the car off to be fixed.
3. Take the kids to the mall to enjoy some free ice cream at Ben and Jerry's.

Ok, I need to try and organize myself. I have visted a few blogs, and realized I am not as organized as I thought I was.

Happy tuesday ladies!

Good luck with your list. I like the way you have it broken down into workable steps. My favorite is #3 on the other list though (the ice cream).

Looks like you are organized and ready to tackle that list. The best part looks like the Ben and Jerrys trip!

Jenny said...
