Tuesday's List

November 23, 2010

What does it say about you when your to-do list starts with "Find the snail eggs"? Between making a costume for Squanto (Noah's role in the Thanksgiving Play), making menorahs, and trying to get Hanukkah packages ready to ship, I somehow lost the snail eggs. More specifically two African snail eggs from Noah's classroom snails. His teacher offered them to us yesterday with the comment that they make perfect pets and then she quickly followed up with "But do not let them escape!". The kids were so excited to have their first official pets and I somehow lost the darn things before they even hatched. Guess who is going to be up late tonight searching for snail eggs, sewing (or more likely just stapling!), and making gingerbread for the first time ever. Yes, that is on the list, too. Have any advice on that? Is it just me or does it seem like the to-do lists get a little wacky around this time of year?

Recently I have been enjoying Aimee's List-It Tuesday posts. One day I hope to find some time to sit down and whip up some fun, interesting, and cool looking lists, but for now I am back to snail egg hunting. 

***The snail eggs have been located! Check that one off of the list.

So glad you found the snail eggs. How did you ever find them. Nope, your list isn't wacky at all. Good luck!

Thanks for the link to the "list" sites -- I just love this idea as a serious list maker and wanna-be doodler.

Also, thanks for the reminder of snails. They aren't common where I am now but they seemed to be everywhere in Ireland...funny little creatures. Great memories.
