    Going to finish weeding in my flower gardens, and put weed and feed on them. While we're still having cooler days.

    Keep cleaning in the FLYlady 'zone'---the foyer, stairs and landing, dining room area.

    Wash some more bedding--the sons' rooms haven't been washed and changed out yet.

    Hope to walk the dog today. I've been eating way too much ice cream this summer, and not walking enough, due to the heat. My clothes are getting tighter.

    I guess I'd best make a list 'cuz with me, nothing gets done without one. Sad, but oh so true. lol

    So, here goes my list for today.

    - Do laundry
    - Call Betty
    - Call for prescription refills


    - Empty vacuum[s] out
    - Unload stuff out of trunk of car
    - Make postcard to send for swap


    - Wash down one of my bathroom walls
    - Go get Donna's keys to get her mail for her
    - Get Betty's clothes together to take to her

    Have a nice day!

    Took advantage of the sales tax holiday and got the main school supplies for the twins. This does not include book bags and maybe lunch boxes. Need to check their condition first. But we spent a whopping $25! Whoohoo! Not bad for double of everything on the list. Of course, the high schooler doesn't get his list until school starts and he finds out from teachers what they need. But he can still get pens, pencils, etc. that he knows he'll need. But I do wish teachers would give some kind of list with the schedules, KWIM?

    Only money spent today. Ate a quick snack before heading out and now we're having burgers and corn on the cob...if I get off here and get busy.

    Still working on computer project...making progress...

    Went to my new chiropractor today, expecting to pay $115. She found out I'm a student and have no insurance and only charged me $50!! And she was GREAT with my leg/back problem! I'm feeling so much better! Will go in for another appt next week to make sure things are doing fine (I have numerous past injuries that plague me to this day).

    I went by Office Max to use two coupons. $2 for a 2-pack of Kleenex (200 ct boxes). Grabbed 3 of those (coupon limit). Went to get the 10 cent packs of index cards and they were out. The manager got the same brand of THREE-PACKS and still told the cashier to only charge me 10 cents!!! 30 cents for 900 index cards!!!!!! (Index cards are a main 'staple' in my study habits). I'm so happy!

    Last load of laundry is in the dryer...all the others are put away.

    Made a lentil-rice casserole from what I had on hand...it's baking and will last us through dinner tonight and 1-2 more meals (depending on how hungry Dh is...hehe). Dishes done and kitchen tidied up.

    We sold our TV a week ago...and I've been posting DVDs on craigslist. Sold $20 worth, so far. Need to get some more on there. I deactivated our Netflix account. We just aren't watching it, even on the computer... So, that'll save $7.99/mo. Dh wasn't wild about the idea, but knows there isn't time for him to watch right now, anyway. So, did it that way instead of just cancelling.

    All in all, a very good day!
