Mighty Monday

Welcome to Mighty Monday! I'll admit that I have never managed well with "To Do" lists. Actually, adding something to a list is almost a guarantee that I won't get around to it. If, by some miracle, I manage not to lose the list, there is still that tiny spark of rebellion in me, that makes me hate all things regimented. So, each Monday, I will post a list of things that I might get accomplished in the coming week. The following Monday, I will post a list of what I actually finished.

Feel free to make your own Mighty Monday list and post the link below in the Mr Linky form...

This Weeks To Do Might Do List

1.I MIGHT remove all of the toys, extra pillows, childrens clothing, dirty dishes, and video games, from my bedroom and declare it MY ROOM again. Somehow, my bedroom has become everyones favorite place. It is where Ross prefers to build with Mega Blocks, where Tallen prefers to watch TV, where Cina and Selly prefer to try on different outfits and check them out in the mirror. It looks like a frat house. Whenever I ask who left this or that strewn about, nobody ever knows...

2.I MIGHT clean the carpets.

Did I ever mention that I hate carpet. Really, I do. Or maybe, I just hate the carpet in my house. I hate the colors,my bedroom has a center covering of beige with an 18" trim of hunter freaking green! "What the hell were you thinking?" I ask Hubs. Well, he says, I had extra green left over from the living room and thought it would look nice." IT DOESN'T! Tallen's room has blue carpet that must be 10,000 years old. The pantry (used to be a bedroom) has 1970's gold
carpeting, this theme is carried on over to Selly's room with the same ugly gold carpet. Upstairs, both of those bedrooms have the same beige that is center stage in my room.

Now, I would be happy with tile or hardwood all through the house. But if I mention this, Hubs takes it personally. He says the carpet has a lot of years left in it ( Lord help me!) and then tells me how he drove X amount of miles, all the way to a carpet supplier in SC and bought this stuff. Sheesh, I'll bet they had a party after he left! "Cheers to the sucker, who just drove 2 zillion miles and paid us way too much, for that cheesy ass carpeting, we got such a deal on, after The Brady Bunch was cancelled!"

So, I clean it, hoping it will make me like it better, it doesn't work...

3. I MIGHT break Percy to walk on a leash. It must be true the Yorkies really have no clue as to how small they are. Percy weighs 3.5 lbs. He will run out the door and trot around the yard on his own just fine. My worry is that one of the larger dogs could kill him in just one snap. So, I need to keep him right with me whenever he goes for a walk. The problem? Whenever I hook a leash to his collar, he goes insane! He swats at his neck until he gets the leash pulled under his neck, then he locks it in a death grip between his front paws, stands up, and walks upright like a person. Not a good position for peeing or pooping. Well, good for him maybe, but not for my shoes or pants legs.

4. I MIGHT get my pantry organized. Woe is me, if I ever walk into the kitchen and find it spotless. This would make most moms happy. But, I know that the clean counters and empty table top only means that the girls have taken all these things and shoved them into the pantry.

I just don't understand. When I was a kid, my siblings or I would never thought of doing such a thing. I don't recall if it was out of fear or not, but our house was always clean and we kids did the cleaning. During the summer months, we got out of bed in the mornings and set right to work. Making the beds, cleaning the kitchen sweep floors etc. And we always started on the dinner dishes right after supper. Our biggest dilemma was who would wash and who would rinse. During the school year, we came home each day and cleaned up the house before even doing homework. I don't ever recall having to be told to do these things, it was just a given. It seems with my kids, even cleaning their rooms is a Have to Tell them To kind of situation...

5. I MIGHT get along with Hubs for a whole week. I am going to keep adding this one. Though it is beginning to seem in vain LOL Lord knows I try but I am beginning to think that the only way to get along with Hubs is to have him say what he wants and do what he wants, whenever he wants, and never disagree. Well, that just isn't my nature...
