A lot on my to-do list today:

  1. Last minute shopping . . . check!
  2. Wrap gifts . . . check!
  3. Consume multiple (bite size) Heath bars while scrambling to meet a deadline as screaming, teething toddler refuses to play independently . . . check!
  4. Consider crying when toddler drops and breaks some fine china but decide that, since you are on the phone with a client, that would be utterly unprofessional . . . check!
  5. Drink twice the normal amount of coffee because being over-sugared just isn't enough . . . check!
  6. Go online and realize that there are many crazy people out there . . . check!
  7. Fear that you are probably one of them . . . check!
  8. Decide that #7 (above) is not necessarily true but simply a result of being off-the-wall due to #5 (above) . . . check!
  9. Shake head and note that the repetitive use of (above) in to-do list more than likely confirms that #7 (above) is indeed true, regardless of feeble attempt in #8 (above) to justify actions . . . check!
  10. Make dinner that toddler, described in #3 (above), refuses to eat . . . check!
  11. Determine that a big dish of Peanut Butter Pandemonium premium (i.e., full-on full-fat) ice cream is the answer to whatever the question was . . . check!
Yup, I checked it all off my list! I'm really getting things done around here.

And, if you were wondering, the PBP was the right answer. As ice cream often is.

12. Make blog readers laugh (apologetically). Check!

May things become more peaceful, and may there always be some premium ice cream in the icebox just in case they don't. Merry Christmas!
