Morning Challenges:

Amid morning chaos, my camera struggles to focus – a struggle that reflects the million things on my plate. Undeterred, I kickstart the day, acknowledging the tasks ahead.


The Friday Before Christmas:

With a long to-do list, I embarked on a mission to clean the house, set up for the new school year, and prepare for upcoming activities. But first, a battle with camera focus adds a comedic touch to the morning.


Multitasking Madness:

The day involves a myriad of tasks, from cleaning and organizing to handling homeschool prep and placing grocery orders. Despite the camera focus mishaps, we press on.


Mid-Morning Progress:

By mid-morning, emails are tackled, orders are scheduled for pickup, and laundry is underway. The day is unfolding smoothly, and we’re on track to tackle the million things on the list.
