    Smile Week-Long Pyramid Challenge - Week 13!

    ~I'll start this for the week since I'm pretty sure MH is busy with her foster dog.
    We all know the drill right? Make a pyramid, make an inverted pyramid, do a baker's dozen or create your own shape. Whatever you do, do those little tasks that you've been procrastinating about! Let's get busy!~

    1. Wash sheets. DONE
    2. Wash blankets. IN PROGRESS
    3. Feed and water dogs. (One of my new jobs while hubby recovers from surgery.) DONE
    4. Empty trash. (Another one of my new jobs.)
    5. Put clean dishes away.
    6. Sweep floors.
    7. Laundry.
    8. Prep outfits for work this next week, including shoes/accessories.
    9. Pick up pizza from hubby's favorite pizza place.
    10. Charge camera battery.
    11. Respond to personal emails.

    I'm doing a diamond this week - 2,4,6,8,6,4,2

    today:
    1. Grocery shop
    2. Clean bedroom & assess what needs to be done in there this week

    Shopping is done, sort of, I ran out of energy before I got to the bottom of my list. We'll just have to do without the rest.

    Room is about half done. I'm going to relax a bit, cup of tea maybe, then go clean up. I haven't looked at the piles of ongoing projects in there yet, but will prioritize them as I tidy them up.

    I now have the most complicated to do list ever. It even has codes on it. I have identified 6 large jobs that need to be done, each with a number of smaller tasks. 2 jobs require the computer (so I will choose from the other four during the day when the kids won't let me near it). 1 job is dependent on two other jobs, so it must be done last. 3 I can work on anytime. They are listed in order of priority as sone are time sensitive.

    OCD? I'm beginning to think so.

    Tomorrow:
    1. Denim quilt strips
    2. Badges
    3. Find fabric for binding
    4. Cut up veg. for snacks

    Don't know what my list will look like - only that I really need to get it done first thing tomorrow in order to have a successful week. My pyramid challenge week will run from Sunday through Saturday this coming week.
