Already done:

Get woken up by DD#1 calling out for Daddy - only Daddy has gone to work.
Crawl out of bed.
Get told Daddy has gone to work by DD#2 - everybody up and has breakfast.
Look at the millions of dishes on the kitchen bench - I did baking yesterday and last night's dinner dishes are still waiting to be cleaned.  
Start doing dishes.  Get depressed.  Do as many as I can do before running out of space and throw in the towel (quite literally).
Give up.
Children fighting and wanting to watch TV.
I yell at children.

To do:
Haircut for girls
Groceries.
Sort out everything for back to school tomorrow.
Hide from children.
