    11:55a - Gadget drawer organized (mainly just had to get some clutter OUT of it, rather than organize what was IN it).

    I want to join this challenge. From what I understand you make 12 'things to do' at the beginning of the week, and do 2 a day. Is that right? Once I'm done ironing DH's 7 shirts (for his business trip) I'm going to go make my list.
    If you will live like no one else, later you can live like no one else.

    QM, the challenge is to do 12 things the first day, 10 the next, 8 the day after that, etc. Today is only the second day of the challenge, so everyone is trying to accomplish at least 10 things today.

    12:40p - Girl's medicated cookies prepared. I made up enough for 20 days. I have to use maple syrup to make the sodium iodide stick together, so I always smell like pancakes afterward!

    Mauimagic;

    Love this too; I also need to do things in small amounts to get things done. I also love looking at op lists and getting idea. Madhen you are cracking me up "accidentally lying" LOL What are medicated cookies?

    AND now for my confession;

    I did not get to start this; for a very good reason. I went shopping yesterday morning and came home to a refrigerator not working. The freezer part works; not the refrigerator. Dh is going to call someone tomorrow to see if it can be fixed; but we've been really busy transporting food to the basement and to MIL's house.

    YOU ARE ALL DOING A FABULOUS JOB! Keep up the good work.

    Madhen - how long does the pancake smell last? Get a lot of animals following you - I mean more than normal? great job in getting things done - you and DC are rolling right along!!!

    It's 10 AM and I've just finished breakfast - ready to face the day and be successful!!

    QM - hope you join us - this challenge is so much fun and rewarding!! You'll catch up really fast.

    breaking it up into days really helps me from facing a long, long list that seems insurmountable. I have found myself not sticking to the day we are on, but getting some things done from the other days - and that's okay with me!! My goal is to get the number done for each day -----that's success!!

    I did the same thing, MM, getting a lot of Monday's things done today. It is like procrastinating, but without the guilt.

    craftypam, sorry about the fridge!!! That happened to me a month or so back. If you get to where you can jump in, just join on whatever day we are on. If not, I am sure we'll have another organizational challenge for you down the road.

    Girl the Donkey gets a "special" cookie every day: fluconazole and sodium iodide. She has a condition called sporotrichosis, and the cookie is to control the symptoms. The pancake smell seems to last all day, even though I wash my hands afterward. Something about having to mold the meds into little balls helps it absorb into the skin, I assume.

    Gasp! I'm not sure I'm going to be able to keep up with all of you.

    QM, the idea is to keep the "to do" list filled with VERY simple and easy to do little "nuisance" projects that you keep passing up, because they aren't worth the time to stop to do them. Those "I'll get to that later" kind of tasks. Cleaning out the van is pretty ambitious, if you are trying to do ten things today, and didn't start until the afternoon!
