I Love Lists

I love lists – I have a to-do list, a list of books I want to read, a list of places I want to go. In the spirit of Friday random-ness, here are a few lists for you.

Oh So Exciting Things To-Do This Weekend:
1. Recycle all the stuff that I’ve tossed in the recycle bins for the past… three weeks (it’s insane)
2. Be on Mom Duty while Hubby attends the oh-so-crucial Fantasy Football draft
3. Be on Mom Duty while Hubby attends the oh-so-crucial neighborhood testosterone gathering (aka Poker Night)
4. Bake a cake for my grandpa’s birthday

Random Things I Buy in Bulk:
1. Toilet paper (two kids, sometimes three – and one who has no idea of TP “portion control”)
2. Juice boxes
3. Salsa (I use it on everything)
4. Peanut butter

Strangest Things In My Purse:
1. More than one Sharpie (I *love* Sharpies)
2. AA batteries (I was afraid my digital camera batteries would die – so I threw in a fresh pair – which are hardly fresh after two months in my purse)
3. A lime green barrette, which is pointless because Pumpkin doesn’t let me put anything in her hair.
4. The ticket stubs to a concert I went to several months ago.

Strangest Things In My Car:
1. Portable potty seat – Pumpkin is still learning and I take no chances. We never have to drive countless miles to find a potty in a hurry
2. A collection of tops for Coke Zero 20 ounce bottles (a collection = 4 tops)
3. A spare outfit for Pumpkin should she pee all over everything
4. Flashlight

So, top me. Is anyone else nuttier than I am?

  1. OK, to kick things off.

    Random things that I did today, on my day of attempting to not be domestic at all.

    1) test all the textas that were lying around and turf out a large proportion of them
    2) check to see that all of the pens that are never within sight when required are put away in an appropriate (never to be seen again location), of course after testing that they work
    3) sharpen every coloured pencil that was in the vicinity (I almost have a sharpening blister to prove it)
    4) sort out the colouring books to unused, still useable and why the hell do we still have this

    A totally riveting Saturday afternoon activity!

  2. Um, I think I’m totally as nutty as you. Soon I, too, will have a potty seat in my minivan. Yes, minivan.

    So, does the city not pick up your recycling for you? That totally sux.

    I’ve lived in my new house for over a month and a half and there are still no pictures on the walls and no curtains. We have blinds but not curtains. I’m feeling a bit badly about this. My mom is coming soon so I’m hoping she’ll do it for me. Blush. Along with clean the hell out of my floors, window tracks.
