This won’t interest you.

This won’t interest you, but I need to make my to do list and I feel more accountable doing it here. I think spring cleaning fever has hit me early! Unfortunately, I can only pick away at my list slowly, often with a baby strapped to me. This list will help me not forget things.

Doesn't really go with this post, but it's cute!

  • Bake cupcakes. Frost.
  • Clean kitchen and put dishes away.
  • Finish setting up dining room.
