I owe I owe I owe...

...off to get my ducks in a row...

So,(do I start every blog entry with the word 'so'..if 'so' - I promise to work on finding a new word for myself.) as I was vacumming, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, doing ebay, obsessing over Matilda Jane, coloring, chattin' on the phone, printing shipping labels, scooping cat poop..washing hands, looking at my new plants that are dying cuz I haven't planted them yet, wiping a butt, buying father's day cards/gifts, taking my girls out to lunch, and reading friends blogs, of course...I am making my obsessive lists in the back of my mind. At this point I am assuming that ALL women do this? Correct? I am not strange am I? We wake up with 585985 things on our "to do" lists everyday and go to bed thinking about all the things we can accomplish tomorrow? Do you think that men even think ahead to what reading material they are bringing into the bathroom with them? Doubt it.

Anyway, my lists this week have been about friends and family that I 'owe' things to. Please don't think of 'owe' as a bad, negative word. I actually think it's a very positive word as it means I am surrounded by loving people with whom I do things with and love dearly. I actually love to 'owe' someone...as it means that I will see them again soon! So(damn - that word haunts me...please give me a better transitional, moving on word...) this week, as another week has yet continued to pass me by - and instead of calling/emailing/seeing my friends...I got on some page on the 'puter and the next thing I know, I've fallen down the rabbit hole(thanks Kristi...it's my new fav phrase)...and then it's tomorrow and I never called my peeps.

This is a list of what I 'owe' right now...and this is me getting it done and making plans....I love you all dearly, and when I forgot to call...just know that I am busy thinking of you and so greatful to have such amazing friends.

Beth S.! You are #1 on my list - do you know how I love you? You and the fam need to come over for dinner!

You crack me up, T! Now your obsessive list-making has my mind racing out-of-control and I have to log off here and go make my own "to do" list for today....
