    Default 2009 Weekly Pyramid Challenge - week 19

    I noticed no one had posted... probably busy with family but my house is a wreck after Christmas and I need this

    so I copied this:

    First, come up with a list of twelve REALLY teeny things that need to be done, but aren't getting done. For me, this would be things like refill a salt shaker, dust off the t.v. screen, etc.

    Next come up with a list of 10 things that are minor, but that you want to do, maybe re-pot a plant, wash the cat's dish, etc.; then 8 things that maybe require just a teeny bit more time/effort; then 6 things; 4 things; 2 things; 1 thing; each time making them chores that might require just a little more of your attention, but nothing huge.

    By the time you get to 1 thing, it might be to clean out the car or get your laundry folded, etc. Nothing that will be overwhelming. Our goal here is to get things done, not set ourselves up for failure.

    Feel free to adapt the rules to your own needs.

    Okay, I just sat around in a stupor today, so I will have to get moving tomorrow to catch up. I did treat the woodstove for creosote today and call the vet about the goat, so I guess that counts.

    My list of twenty for tomorrow:

    1. Finish my 2009 fling challenge (40+ things left to fling)
    2. Take down Christmas cards
    3. Put away casserole dish set thingy I got for Christmas
    4. Put away Christmas dishes
    5. Water all the houseplants
    6. Put all the phones/computers on chargers for Monday
    7. Find a book to start reading
    8. Read at least 10 pages
    9. Get a Sunday paper (cancelled my subscription)
    10.Go through it for coupons
    11.Measure hallway door for baby gate
    12.Check to see if I have any baby Christmas cactuses to give Mom
    13.Wash a load of laundry
    14.Wash futon cover
    15.Replace futon cover
    16.Cut up leftover prime rib and freeze
    17.Bring up a load of firewood
    18.Take dog crate out of work car
    19.Stage garbage in truck to take to dump
    20.Pick up mail from post office
