    Aha - true - sometimes I get overambitious and I have all of these things I WANT to do...in a world where there are 48 hours in a day.

    Just got back from Home Depot - love using my lunch hour to get stuff done!

    I'm not going to get through my entire list today, but I'm okay with that.

    Today I:
    ~did a load of dishes
    ~cut and hemmed shade cloth
    ~sewed one cushion cover

    It's getting hot in here since we're still more than a week away from the part arriving to fix our AC, and I'm done running all over the house for the cushion covers. I'm content to have one done. The other two can wait till tomorrow.

    I didn't make a list today, but I did do some writerly things, so that's something.

    I moved the freezer from the middle of the living room floor to a wall. (Don't ask.)

    I put supper in the Crock-Pot. Big woo.

    I sorted and organized the freezer meat drawer, so now I know we have plenty of steak and hamburger but need more pork loin and chops. Luckily, those are on sale this week.

    The heat is building again here, so I don't think I'll be getting much done for a while. No progress on the couch cushions.

    ok, I'm going to try jumping back in again. Its 5pm on Friday, so I'm going to post for tomorrow:

    *Mail rebate (yes, the same one I keep posting. I lost a UPC but just got it back yesterday)
    *Go through my "medical" folder and purge it. I started this yesterday but couldn't finish it due to the baby. I have copies of bills that I already paid going back to 2006. Don't need it!
    *Spend some me time - either get a pedicure, find a new purse, spend an hour at Starbucks with my iPad reading.

    3/4 - happy with that considering all the other stuff going on. Fiance's moving in so we have been very hard at work and in productivity mode. This weekend we packed more of his stuff, unpacked some of it at my place, did laundry, tried to connect his printer to my computer (no luck in downloading driver); set up a carpet cleaner for his place, moved my clothes around so he'd have more closet space, took stuff to GoodWill...whew!

    For today, Monday:
    - pick up prescriptions (done)
    -Call pharm to check on another one
    -Pet store for feliway collar and cat food
    -Whole foods - already need more bread
    - post office to mail grad gift
    -change bunny litter
    - call Comcast to try to get wireless router working/get sports channels for him.


    Going to try to get the first things done on my lunch hour, the last two are for after work. Busy, busy!

    Almost finished. It's too hot today. But I have one cover done except for the handle, and the other one done except for the end seams, boxing, and handle. IOW, I should be able to easily finish tomorrow.
