    Got yesterday's list done, although I cheated and gave the bag of small animal dishes to the county animal shelter, because I had to stop there anyway to return their dog trap.

    Just re-set the microwave. Took about 10 seconds, and it has been staring its little dead blank stare at me for months.

    Mine just goes blank. It is my only "clock" in the kitchen, so for months, I've been looking at the blank microwave, cursing, then walking into the livingroom to see what the time is!!

    Ah madhen, you just crack me up! It would have been quicker to reset the clock on the microwave then to continually walk in the livingroom to check the time.....I can just picture you doing it too...cursing all the way.

    ~Guess who's done today's six?

    ME!
    Guess who did bonus tasks?

    Me Again!
    I'm still using the list I made on Sunday and adding to it as I read some of your tasks(thanks heaps...sarcasm). I'm going to try to get 43 done this week along with all of you, even if I don't work every day. I'm at 19 right now.
    Bonus tasks:
    1. vacuumed sliding door tracks
    2. washed glass door
    3. wiped a chocolate smudge off the wall

    I still haven't made a list for the day. I want to give up on the day, but I won't. I took the kiddies to playgroup this morning, so that was a write-off. Once I got them to bed for their afternoon nap I laid down and slept an hour, so that was another write-off. Coffee has just started perking me up, so there is hope. Thankfully we only need to complete 6 things today. That seems slightly attainable.

    - Found the Costco receipt to return DD2's pajamas (#1)
