Have I told y’all about my love (LOVE) for making to-do lists? It’s a passion really. And you should see the multiple Beach Readiness to-do lists I’ve made in preparation for our trip.
Here’s the thing, though. All of more optional things keep getting bumped to ‘tomorrow.’ And now, we’re leaving tomorrow, so those things will just remain undone.
The things I didn’t get to:
1- Much of my to-do list, mostly cleaning chores. I love coming home to a pristine-ly clean house, so I hate that.
2- I didn’t make a toteable towel for myself. Nor did I make ones for Adam or Burke. Bummer.
3- I didn’t make a beach bag for us. I mean, we have a beach bag. I just wanted to make us a new one, tailored to my by-the-pool staples. No such luck.
4- I haven’t picked up my pile of books from the library yet. And when I say pile, I mean, I think I reserved 15 books. That is still on my hopefully-we’ll-get-there-tomorrow-morning list. My procrastination in this regard does leave one benefit- do y’all have any book recommendations for me? Even if I can’t pick it up for this trip, I LOVE having an ongoing list of what to read next…
5- I didn’t make Burke new lounge pants to replace his now-too-small ones from last fall (pictured above). I wanted to use the sleeves from one of Adam’s old long sleeved tshirts. Perhaps I’ll be up for some latenight sewing?
There were a bunch of things I did get to… including linen pants and a matching appliqued whale shirt for Burke, a Happy Toddler Travel Pack for tomorrow, and a drawstring sunscreen bag (it is funny to me just to type that out… I’ll try to put together a tutorial and an explanation later- haha!). If I have a chance to take pictures, I’ll try to share some of that this weekend.
Hopefully you’re having a more successful to-do list checking off week than I am! 🙂
