    I'm going to list the things that are the little "nuisance" project that I keep passing up and the things I do every day. KWIM? If not, I think this thread will be too overwhelming.

    5:28 p.m. - Started a load of laundry (#2) ...This is something I would do regularly; just need a little credit for doing it! Don't worry. I won't post every load I do.

    5:32 p.m. - Tidied the clutter accumulating in the girls' bathroom (#3)

    Switched out one of my Sunday goals. It was to divide up some of my water plants. Well, Riley managed to go "mano a mano" with a skunk last night, and apparently Chewy was close enough to call out a play by play, because both dogs REEK of skunk. Which means their bedding reeks. So I switched out the plants for getting their bedding cleaned.

    5:50 p.m. - Tidied out my Bible and recycled unwanted/unneeded papers (#5) ...This was such an easy task that I procratinated for such a long time. Crazy!

    We're about to sit down for supper. I'll have to continue later.

    I kinda joined this challenge this morning but didn't come back to the thread to actually say I was joining. Oops.
    I started a list for the entire week but when I got to around #10 I was so antsy to start that I just got to work.
    Today's 10:
    1. iron baby quilt fabric
    2. make sandwich wraps
    3. type, print, cover and post school schedule
    4. print a menu calendar for September
    5. refill bathroom soap dispenser
    6. take Goodwill stuff to car
    7. replace printer ink cartridge
    8. cut out last two t-shirt squares for quilt
    9. sweep kitchen
    10. mop kitchen(it's been 3 weeks )

    I've done all but the last 3.~

    Well, in your case, nuisance26, they really ARE little nuisance projects!!

    Dog quilt number one washed and on the line drying. Dog quilt number two in extra hot with extra rinse and extra bleach to get the skunk smell out!

    6:44 p.m. - Made the back deck a little more presentable...tidied toys, brought in a couple herb planters that have sat there for a couple weeks, moved things to their proper spots. There are a couple of "later" jobs (i.e., like washing off the water table & duct taping the crack in it, washing off some dirty chairs) on the back deck, but everything looks quite a bit better.

    7:35 p.m. - grated a block of cheddar cheese & put it into a container in the fridge. This is my least favourite job; I avoid it like the plague. Grating cheese tires out my arm. I guess I'm just a wussy. (#7)
