First floor vacuumed.
Kitchen floor washed.
2 loads of laundry done.
2 baskets put away.
Coffee date with other moms.
Children taken to and picked up from school ON TIME.
Baked cookies that DIDN'T BURN with children (and incorporated math, too).
Didn't lose temper more than 5 times.
Dinner is cooked by 5:00.
