What's a girl to do?

Well, I have to share my wonder... Ruthie has been taking a nap and she's coming to the 2 hour mark. What a wonderful afternoon nap!! This might not be a blogg-able event for some babies, but my Ruthie loves to take little cat naps. In fact somedays she doesn't nap for more than 2 hours the ENTIRE DAY!! (and that record is accomplished 20-30 minutes at a time!)

But, this afternoon I knew she was particularly tired so I fed her and put her down for a nap. (That takes her out of her usual routine of eat-Play-nap.

This is all I got done in my two hours...

separated the week's worth of laundry
ate lunch
put in a load of laundry
folded two loads of laundry
packaged things for the mail
figured out dinner and started to thaw the meat
did the dishes, started the dishwasher
went to the bathroom :) (Sometimes that is quite an accomplishment!)
called a pampered chef customer
talked to my mom
put away my loot from the Target run this morning
created my grocery list

I feel very good about my time to myself. I wondering how much longer she's going to sleep... let's see what else I can get done?!!!

How many times did you check on her during that 2 hours? I couldn't resist peeking in on mine.

Love the productivity! Could you send some of your energy my way?
