    Today - already a busy beaver this morning:
    -Put green hanging folders into fiance's file cabinet (done)
    -clean toilet (done)
    -unwrap a box of his kitchen stuff (done)
    - put down kitchen rugs (done)

    Tonight - bonus time:
    -put away his kitchen stuff
    -vacuum stairs
    -pack suitcase with baby stuff and put in nursery

    I seriously wish I had some time off to get more done - fiance moved in last week and then we spent this weekend one day cleaning his apartment and another with his family for his mom's b-day - so we got nothing unpacked. It's driving me nuts that everything's sitting there and I just want to have one really productive day getting stuff done. Unfortunately a lot of the stuff fiance has to go through. ARGH.
    Goals:
    Lose 25 lbs (exercise at least 3 times/wk/eat healthy)
    Spend less
    Save more $ in ES
    Do three things daily
    Prep for zombie apocalypse

    Gottadance, hang in there, you will have it all put away and cleaned up before you know it,

    I had a very productive day yesterday - before and after work. Of course, got so revved up I stayed up really late and am a little tired today. But I did figure out a solution for the bunny hay problem - I have two buns and their hay gets everywhere. I did some online research and created a hay dispenser for them that should help.

    For today:
    -blood tests (done)
    -unload and reload dishwasher
    -finish laundry
