    I had a mental picture of Dc's Mom trying to look over her shoulder to see what she was posting on FV

    TigerGirl, I'm in awe of your housepainting! DH won't let me paint much! He's such a perfectionist. I can do a good job but he feels like he has to stand over me and give a running monolog of cautions as I paint. He'll let me paint the primer though

    1. make granola
    2. make waffles to freeze (working on this now)
    3. make cornbread mixes
    4. find a book I am looking for
    5. work on memory books
    6. practice song to sing for church
    7. put clean sheets on guest bed
    8. work on seed order ordered!
    9. check on Mom's eye appointment
    10. wrap Christmas presents that are left
    11. call lawyer's office for Mom
    12. clean kitchen range top
    13. clean microwave
    14. make brown rice crackers
    15. make barley crackers
    16. decide on January Project of the Month
    17. clean out refrigerator
    18. take Mom's trash out for pick-up
    19. take our trash out for pick-up
    20. take Mom to pay her bills
    21. remind DH to pick up his suit at cleaners and boots at shop

    5. handle finance distribution
    6. catch up on emails
    7. load and run dishwasher
    8. get a McDonald's gift card for friend's Christmas

    and then try to do these after dinner:
    9. at least start a load of laundry
    10. work on coupons
    Never did get started on 9 and 10. I did, however, make homemade mac and cheese last night and, amazingly, it tasted pretty good. By the time dh got home from work and we ate and picked up the kitchen afterwards I just wanted to go to bed and not move. Arthritis in right hip and lower back was acting up.

    10. wrap Christmas presents that are left
    14. make brown rice crackers
