    Smile Week-long Pyramid Challenge - Week 6

    ~For those of you who are new to this and as a reminder to those of us who can't seem to follow the rules( me!!), I'll try to explain what this challenge is.
    You will make 7 lists of things that need to be done. The list for the first day will have 12 things on it. The next day's list will have 10, the next 8, then 6, 4, 2 and finally 1 item. The challenge runs from Saturday to Friday.
    Start with the smallest tasks you can think of that for whatever reason aren't getting done. Things that will only take a few minutes to do. As you go up the pyramid your tasks will be less in number but perhaps greater in time consumption.
    It's time to stop procrastinating! Let's do this!~

    ~I'll have to carry over a few tasks that I didn't get to last week but that's ok. We're were out of the house 5 out of the last 7 days running to medical appointments and errands so I'm thrilled I got anything above the basics done!

    So here's my Saturday 12:
    (little things...little things...little things....)

    go grocery shopping (short list already made!)
    go to yard sale
    laundry 1
    laundry 2
    1 load of dishes
    plan menu
    wipe out fridge
    finish tying quilt
    wash shower curtains and mats
    find dd's spoon
    make maple syrup
    change all bed sheets

    Some of these seem like big tasks but I should easily be able to get everything done in 3 hours.~

    Love your list - am concerned with one thing though- change all bed sheets - how many beds? I am going to use your Laundry 1 & 2 instead of just a blanket Laundry. Mahalo for the ideas!! and for starting this thread!!

    You've got a great plan for Saturday DC. I'm going to work on redesigning mine now that I know the Eagle Scout project of paining my classroom and storage is back in business this Saturday!! The plan on finishing up next Saturday!! I am really excited about the potential transformation. Now I must find my camera - first thing on my list!!

    Okay, here is my list for today:

    1. Take budgie to vet
    2. Put away all clean laundry
    3. Clean counter under bookshelf
    4. Refill wild bird feeders
    5. Send letter
    6. Set up quarantine/hospital cage
    7. Find permanent home for animal meds (donkey and dog)
    8. Make salt dough
    9. Find stud finder
    10. Dehydrate or freeze bananas
    11. Dehydrate/freeze peaches
    12. Pull weeds near goldfish pond
    I'm looking at temps at 100F today, so I'm keeping things light. Also still dealing with my back, although I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the shot will start working soon!

    Wow madhen, you be careful in that heat! We are only looking at a high of 58F today. Pretty extreme difference in temps between us! I hope your back starts feeling better soon and DON'T overdo it!

    madhen, definitely you do have a few more good hours in you - this does not mean that you have to use them tonight. Recover completely first.

    I think that "Set up quarantine/hospital cage" may be a little ambitious for you right now, so it's okay if you don't get it done.

    I haven't done this before, and since Saturday is pretty much over, I'm just going to start with 10 things for Sunday. (I spent all day cleaning closets, so I did at least 12 things today.)

    1. List 1 thing on Kijiji or Freecycle
    2. Clean out coupon folder
    3. Go through manuals, staple on receipts, throw out ones for things we don't have.
    4. Load of laundry (1)
    5. Load of laundry (2)
    6. Clean off kitchen counters
    7. Go through flyers, make list
    8. Bring stuff upstairs from desk drawer
    9. Bring hanging file upstairs
    10. Put away basket of stuff on stairs

    ~The server changeover has really messed up my FV time today. Only one or two posts that were made after 5pm last night showed up until about 5pm today. Oh the horrors!
    I'm feeling under the weather today. I actually stayed in bed all afternoon when I couldn't get rid of the headache and shivering. I just knew that visiting all those doctor office's last week would get one of us sick.
    In the hope that I'll be completely healthy tomorrow, I'll post my list.

    Sunday 10:

    Spend 15 minutes and no more doing each of the following:
    pick up in all rooms
    vacuum rooms
    sweep rooms
    mop rooms
    dusting rooms
    cleaning mirrors/glass/counters/sinks

    wash sweaters
    fold all laundry
    put away all laundry
    load of dishes

    MM, I have just three beds in the house so it's a 10 minute job. Thanks for caring though! ~
