    I am amazed I got that much done on Saturday. Now to list Sunday:

    1. Sort coupons
    2. Purge old coupons
    3. File coupons

    These are only the coupons I have already cut, of which there are a ton! I still have a bunch uncut, but they will have to wait a day or two.

    Actually, made 15 days' worth of cookies for Girl, and I washed and dried TWO cages. Still need to pick up around the living room and dining room, make up my ornament tags, and finish the laundry (more of it than I anticipated).

    I cleaned up the camping gear and started on the tools this morning while dh was making breakfast.

    Then I spent the rest of the day cooking dinner, then eating, and eating, and eating. Now I'm very very sleepy.

    That only leaves 29 tasks for tomorrow to catch up, totally doable
