My life is a work in progress

Yes, my life is a work in progress. There is always something to be done around here, and it’s in the home, outside the home and of course… inside and outside of me!


People often ask me, how do you do so much? Almost enviously. Well, it certainly helps that my husband has been home ALL summer. It also helps that I love what I do! But the worst part is that I always have “so much” to do! I’m too organized to let it build up any higher. Here’s the short list of my top big projects.


Latest tasks checked off the list:

X Paint Master Bedroom – Thanks Tom!

X Finish the homeschool group’s yearbook and get it to the printers!


X Sew something to sell, and try not to keep it!

Homemade Sale Homemade Sale

Homemade Sale

X Try to sell some stuff online:

     ModestMommies Header

     and Craigslist is my friend, free of charge

X Can/Freeze 70 pints of green beans – Thanks Kathryn!

X and bake cakes for church festival.

Cake for Bake Sale X Setup schoolroom and order books

(This is all you can look at – I’m not that ready!!!)


Things due in the next few weeks:

{} Clean Master Bedroom, again

{} Collate, punch and bind yearbooks – hand out at the rally this week.

{} More projects to sew and fix

Project Central aka MstrBr

Even the curtains need work! ugh.

{} Make some moolah, because Tom still isn’t working (since April)!

{} Bake an Atkins cake for US to eat – and some zucchini bread.

{} Read the rest of “Raising Your Spirited Child


{} Plan out school year and file away old artwork.

{} And as always… dust covered Scrapbooking awaits

  1. Hi Melissa,

    You certainly have accomplished a lot with raising 4 little children!
    I am so happy to see that you can put to good use your ‘artistic talent’ in SO MANY WAYS :)

    You do such a nice job on all your projects. You forgot to put a picture of the cute benches you built and the sketch of the new shed in progress.
    I’ve come to realize that we probably will never fully get caught up because more comes whether we like it or not.

    Love you all
    Mom (Grandma):)


Thank you for reading about our family. I look forwards to sharing ideas, joys and struggles. God Bless you in your journey!
