To-Do Tuesday - 8/11

"To Do Tuesday", we're attacking our to-do lists each week, blogging about our lists and what we've got going on, and sharing it with each other to help keep each other accountable. Everyone should go Crazy Adventures in Parenting to link up in the Mister Linky as the central "To-Do Tuesday Hub" so we can visit who's participating and offer encouragement to each other throughout the week. Don't forget to add the "To-Do Tuesday" button to your post, linking back to this post!

This week is allowing things to calm down. I finished up the girls room, Most of the boxes are unpacked and we only have a few areas that I put my hands on my hips and stare at blankly.

So… here is this week’s list. I am going to do it by day to help me separate it in my head.


• Be sad that I am missing Dave’s game
• Make chicken drumsticks for dinner
• Make cookies with the little ones
• Start my Couch to 5K running program with Ashlyn (and possibly other teens)

• Day 2 my Couch to 5K running program with Ashlyn (and possibly other teens)
• Clean off the back porch.


• Watch Jake play the new Jumpstart Wii game
• Take photos for review
• Eat on the back porch with two of my guys.
• Find a way to romance my guy after the little man goes to bed.


• Dig up the flower garden.
• Repot two plants.

I'd love to know how you are going to cook those drumsticks. My family is made up of drumstick hounds, and I'm always living one recipe away from a breakdown. Any thoughts? Thanks so much.

I posted this on your blog She said, She Said http://thesisterproject.com/roach/doggone-dog-days/#comments

But I wanted to put this up here for more Drumstick lovers!

Ok Marion… here are my drumstick tips!

I am doing these grilled Drumsticks tonight. I just learned to grill this year and I am IN LOVE with my lovely new grill. It gets used at least 4 times a week! Here is a recipe I found on Food Network today that is going to be in my stomach tonight. The boyfriend is pitching for his team tonight and my son is going to watch him at the game, so it’s just me and the 5 other kids!

Now, I have another one I love to use. It is from the “A Year of Slow cooking” blog. I have done this recipe twice and am in LOVE with this dish.

I hope your family enjoys these, if you add anything to it, I’d love to hear variations, with 7 kids I can always use a fun twist!

Nice list - I am hoping to get my list more organized as our routine falls into place once school gets started.

Very thorough list! Your couch to 5k program sounds interesting. Is it something you've come up with?
