    madhen...Your 22 point list from the other day kept making my eyes dizzy! Yowzers! I could never complete with you and it!!!!!...Not that this is a competition or anything. I know that it's not.

    Here's my list for today
    1) Phone the gymnastics place re: changing the date TRIED. WILL KEEP TRYING.
    2) Tidy up toy bowling pins in backyard
    3) Find receipt for noisemaker to return
    4) Get extended health claim ready to mail
    5) Banking DONE
    6) Make guest room bed
    7) Bake chocolate chip granola bars & don't eat a bite!!!
    8) Get DD1 to complete her homework and Awana lesson
    9) Fold and put away all laundry
    10) Put up Christmas decorations along foyer railing

    Right now the house is set at 67 degrees, I have a sweater on and I'm FREEZING. My fingers and toes are almost numb and my fingers are shaking a little. I don't think I'm going to get moving very fast unless I crank up the heat a couple degrees. Hopefully that will help...not the gas bill but get my body moving.

    For today's list I have done nothing. Stayed in be until 4:30 PM with vertigo. It is almost all gone, thank goodness.

    Tomorrow I will just keep moving along with the lists seeing what I can accomplish.

    4. Continue with laundry - finish getting outfits for week together if I didn't finish before going to bed Sunday night (should be mostly finished). DONE
    5. Charge camera battery.
    6. Respond to personal emails.
    7. Baking soda wash to remove excess color from hair ends (color repair step 1 - this is a maybe for Monday).
    8. Drink all my water. IN PROGRESS
    9. 45 minutes on treadmill. DIDN'T DO - FOUND THE SHOE STRINGS FOR MY TENNIES BUT THEY WERE PARTIALLY STUCK UNDER A HEAVY CRATE THAT NEITHER HUBBY OR I COULD LIFT....SOLUTION? WELL I WAS GOING TO JUST BUY A NEW SET. BUT THEN WHILE I WAS AT WORK HUBBY TIED THE FREE END TO THE MASTIFF'S HARNESS AND SHE PULLED IT RIGHT OUT. GOOD PUPPY!
    10. Fix lunch for work for following day (Tuesday).
    11. Listen to my book during commute. DONE
    12. Crochet during lunch break. DIDN'T DO....FORGOT TO TAKE MY CROCHETING WITH ME THIS MORNING, PLUS HAD TOO MUCH WORK TO CATCH UP ON AFTER BEING OUT A COUPLE DAYS....MOVING TO TOMORROW'S LIST

    For working as hard as I did today, it sure doesn't feel like I got much done! Some progress is better than none, I guess.

    I did have an unscheduled item to add to the list....when I got home hubby wanted me to take him to Costco and to Winco. Second day cooped up at home and he's going stir crazy already!
