    She is four years older, but she acts like my younger sister. And when she visits, she has her list of places that she wants to shop at, and I am typically her driver. Today, she didn't make me drive, but I sat in a car a long, long time.

    This is my second shot, and the doctor says from this point forward, that I should just call as I felt it necessary. The first shot knocked out about 20-30% of the pain, and the second one will hopefully have a cumulative effect. I don't know how long it will last, though.

    I can't wait to see the calendar quilt MM!

    Madhen - I hope the shot helps more than 20 - 30% this time!

    ~Here's what I have left to do today and tomorrow:

    two hours of housecleaning
    pay bills
    fold all clothes
    put away all clothes
    remove and store window ac

    I'm just having one of those cloudy weeks where I can't seem to do even the most basic tasks. Urg. That's why my list is so dull this week. These things would not get done if not for this challenge.~

    I did the jelly jars, the fries, 2 more envelopes of filing, and picked up everything in the yard except the wading pool, I'll grab that next time I go out.

    I don't know why I'm so tired this week, I can't get much of anything done. I am super cranky, too, so I'm not going to force it. Another early night I think.

    I am still trying to catch up from one day of very long hours at work and another day of visiting with my sister all day. Today, I have dusted off the mantle over the woodstove and made a few items for my craft booth. I am hoping to get the stove cleaned out tonight as well, and to catch up the rest tomorrow.

    I spend 6 hours at my computer at school today working at an online class - think I got all caught up.

    Had a wonderful massage.

    Stopped at the PO and picked up the mail - no boxes!!

    Got caught up on the dishes.

    Want to do some miniquilt sewing tonight.

    Need to look for ornament supplies in my sewing/craft room.

    This is going to be a very busy weekend coming up - will try to make sure that I get to bed early everynight to make the most of the day time activities!!

    Have a great one!!
