Holy Cow! What a great list of things to do and what an opportunity to do it. I mean this as the highest compliment, you have the drive and organizational skills of your mother. I envy that. I feel lucky to get laundry done, toilets cleaned, and kids fed on a regular basis!

Kate, Im normally the same as you but since you are the one feeding my kids and John is cleaning the toilets and doing the laundry...I should be able to get this stuff done!

Wow, I'm impressed! It must be nice getting so much done but at the same time I know I would really miss my kids!! That is a long time to be away from them! Hang in there!
