    Awww! Thanks so much Debbie! Somehow I knew it would be you to help me out!!

    I'm looking forward to this. I keep getting myself into ruts these days. I think I'll do better though if I have to "own up" a little, kwim?

    Bread bowls - now there's a fun idea DC - cannot wait to see and hear about the results!!

    Today is a paper work day for me - and now I can see other things creeping in so I don't do the paperwork - is it any doubt as to why I have a challenge in this area?

    Need to break it down into specific steps:

    1. Total up all paperwork categories for 2009
    2. Enter all totals into spread sheets
    3. Print out FAFSA forms for this year
    4. Create spreadsheets for 2010
    5. Enter info into 2010 spreadsheets

    If and when I get all that done - bake a loaf of bread.

  4. Remove Advertisements

    Jumping in late again. Saturday and Sunday, I usually do very little because dh and youngest dd are home. We usually visit with older dd and her husband on the week-ends too. Between the two days however, I did wash, dry and put away 2 loads of laundry as well as unload, reload and run the dishwasher twice. Got the garbage collected from around the house and took to the curb and got our meds distributed. I also cut coupons and did a little filing.
