Super Mom Mode

Monday always sneaks up on parents who have relaxed over the weekend.
We've enjoyed our kids.
We might have watched a whole movie, beginning to end.
Maybe we skipped cooking and ate at a restaurant.
Maybe we even got to sleep in....
past 7am.

That's the wonderful thing about weekends,
wonderful things happen in them.
The horrible thing about weekends
is that they are always followed by a

Monday is always a reflection of
how much relaxing I did over the weekend
how many things I didn't finish on last week's To Do List.

It weekly shows up with
another To Do List,
another calendar full of activities,
and another set of problems that need to be solved.

This Monday was especially hard for me.

For the entire month of May I operated on
Super Mom Mode,
ya' know,
those times when ya' get so much done you amaze yourself?

As June began, I was on
Super Tired Mom Mode,
with too much to do and not knowing where to begin.

Summer is a different kind of busy for our family.

A "we-can't-keep-track-of-it-all"
kinda' busy.

So, hubby and I began with this.

On our bedroom wall.

We tracked all summer travels, company and events.

7 States
6 Family Members
5 Carry-on Suitcases
4 Kids Who Need Summer Clothes
3 Grandkids to Visit
2 Bible Camps Ministering at
1 Fun Summer

The calendar ain't pretty, but it got the job done.

Then, I added this in the living room.

L to R
*tote to bring to grandkids
(cheaper to check-on as luggage than to mail stuff)
*brown bag of items buying for son going to Bible camp for 3 weeks
*tote for daughter going to two different Bible camps for 7 weeks
*messenger bag of activities for car for drive home from Bible camp
*laundry basket of items that need to go to Bible Camp with Mom and Dad
*luggage for Beka to go to California with Mom to attend birth of grandchild #3

It ain't pretty, but it got the job done.

After almost a week of not blogging,
it took me all Monday
to complete this blog post.

With one hour and one minute left of Monday,
it ain't pretty, but I got the job done.

Yea, so that
Super Mom Mode
needs to make a superhero return,

'cuz this Momma's got a lot to organize
to get the summer fun underway.
