    ~I'm in again and just trying to get as much done as possible. I think I'll try harder this week to get to 43 completed items.
    And I'm listing things as I complete them since that seems to be more motivating to me.
    I love this challenge! Thanks for getting it started this week monkey!~

    Last night, I noticed that madhen had posted her whole week's list and decided to try that style. When I printed out my copy, I really felt good about having a base to work from. Maybe this will be the best wa to go for me - at least for awhile!!

    I'm getting ready to head for the soccer field. I have a sub for Monday's absence - so I can check one thing off the list!!

    have a great Saturday!!

    I like having the whole week set up, because then I can "cheat" if I don't feel like doing a particular chore one day by doing one set for a different day.

    I'm back and ready to tackle home stuff. Think I'll put that load of laundry on while I get reorganized. I did get grocery shopping done for the week - market was almost empty, making shopping a breeze - the firemen were in, so it was a visual pleasure also - those men are truly gorgeous!!

    Hope you all are enjoying your Saturday!!
