    DH is working late so I thought I would take the opportunity to get some major computer stuff done. I don't like to go on the computer when he's home because I don't see enough of him as it is. I will do the school stuff tomorrow night since I can work on it in the livingroom.

    Saturday:
    1. Scan 2001 taxes
    2. Go through envelope of flatbed scanning, sort by year
    3. Speed tidying 20 minutes

    4. One load laundry
    5. One load laundry

    6. Empty camera
    7. Order calendars

    8. Find number for stove repair
    9. School schedule
    10. Box for language manipulatives
    11. Math ready for week
    12. Find Christmas activity for kids that doesn't involve the oven



    Sunday:
    1. 2001 taxes, verify & shred
    2. Scan pile of misc slips
    3. Verify and shred pile
    4. Organize files
    5. Backup disk for everything prior to 2005
    - Actually only did to 2001, going to do the remaining years individually as I get the tax files in
    6 - 10. Replace toilet seal - this will take a long time, I'm counting it as 5 things. I don't think dh will have the energy for this tomorrow, he went into the office at noon and will be there all night.

    Monday:
    1. Organize and clean out photos
    2. Photo backup
    3. Throw out/erase old disks
    4. Application backup
    5. Scan 1/2 2002 taxes (a lot of paper that year)
    6. Replace Toilet Seat
    7. Go through unfinished stuff in closet, pick next project
    8. Call Mom

    6 - 10. Replace toilet seal - this will take a long time, I'm counting it as 5 things. Not done today - not only did dh work from noon yesterday until 5AM this morning, but he got up at 10 and worked all day from home. Unfortunately, I can't lift a toilet by myself

    So I worked ahead

    Monday:
    1. Organize and clean out photos
    2. Photo backup
    3. Throw out/erase old disks
    4. Application backup
    5. Scan 1/2 2002 taxes (a lot of paper that year)
    6. Replace Toilet Seat
    7. Go through unfinished stuff in closet, pick next project
    8. Call Mom

    I also totally reorganized all our school stuff. It was by subject, and still is, but I took out everything at the current grade level and put it in a separate box. That way I don't have to go rooting through the others. And I cleaned up a bunch of other stuff in my closet (aka the receptacle for all things waiting to be done).
