    Debbie - your post made me think that perhaps we should all plan to do something everyday just for ourselves - rejuvination really does make us able to function so much better - and as women we tend to charge ahead until we fall flat on our noses!!

    Hope that you had some great time for yourself!!

    OK, sorry for the late post, but here's my 1st list of things I did on Monday>

    1~ Cleaned off spice jars
    2~ Refilled spice jars
    3~ Did 10 minutes of de-cluttering
    4~ Made a bag of wedding supply leftovers for FreeCycle
    5~ Made a bag of skirts for FC
    6~ Made a bag of older country decor things for FC
    7~ Made a bag of very "new-like" bras for FC
    8~ Made a box of old phones for FC
    9~ Put kitchen items back in my newly inside painted cabinets.
    10~ Re-organized my small appliances for those cabinets
    11~ Sorted thru some old albums w/15 YO who couldn't believe me and DH had Led Zep albums...lol!

    Yet to do
    12~ Read Daily Scripture (will do in bed later, so really good as done)
    13~ Sort thru items in the next kitchen cabinet to be painted
    14~ Make a final decision on 15 YO's new bed

    Now the things I got to are the chores besides the things I already do everyday like laundry, beds, etc. Is that how it should go? I'm figuring it is, because it's those "nit-pickers" that I never seem to get to. I can't wait to see and feel the "rewards" for this challenge. This is the stuff that haunts me...lol!

    Now for the YTD stuff, do I post it as a con't for tomorrow's list, or do I have to keep it separate?

    Having fun!!

    Here's ten for Tuesday, 1/12>

    1~ Do Daily Scripture
    2~ List stuff on Freecycle boards
    3~ Make shopping list and pull out coupons
    4~ 15 minutes of decluttering hall closet
    5~ 15 minutes of decluttering/organizing bathroom closet
    6~ Clear out/organize 2 drawers in my bathroom vanity
    7~ Do at least 1 drawer in mine and hubby's dressers
    8~ Sort thru papers in nightstands
    9~ Make a dessert from all those $.19 Duncan Hines cake mixes I got w/coupons. Got my eye on a biscotti recipe using either lemon or orange mix
    10~ Last but not least, get rid of those 2 dead potted plants in front of my house. HORRORS out there!! Problem is, I'm inside so much that I completely forget about them almost as soon as I close the door behind me. This list should...and I repeat ~should~ make me remember, and keep me on my toes for the other jobs...lol!

    Oh, and tonight I watched that show Hoarders, not just because I enjoy it, but also to remind me how bad things really can get if you're letting things go too long. I have "rat pack" tendencies as it is already. Don't wanna become one of the people they put on that show ..lol!

    You ladies are a big encouragement here too!

    My big project today was to be my root canal.

    Went over to the other side early

    got a cute bathing suit at Walmart!!
    Embroidery hoop and a few 90% off Christmas goodies
    Picked up sling from Surgeon

    The Dentist said that he felt the tooth was settling in from the last root canal in September. I go back at the end of the month for another consultation.

    Just got home and for my free afternoon I am going to the pool for exercise, sun, and book reading. I'll figure out work to do when I get back....am trying to treat this week as a partial spa vacation!!

    Have a great Tuesday!!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Right now I'm so discouraged because I wasn't feeling great and fell so far behind and I only just started. I managed to do a few things from my list for Tuesday, but completely fell out on Wednesday with no list making at all.

    Well here's what I did do from my list above>
    Numbers 1, 3, and 8. I also made a final decision on the bed I was supposed to take care of from Monday's leftovers.

    So I need to do all the "undones" for tomorrow's (thursday) list, and add 3 more>

    1~ Do Daily Scripture
    2~ Organize/declutter 2 more bathroom vanity drawers
    3~ Cut out my printable coupons and organize them

    This stuff is in addition to my everyday chores ...lol!!

    So tomorrow will hopefully be an "Up and At 'Em'" day for me It's supposed to be a pretty day which means I'll get to hang clothes out too YAY!!

    Keep it up girls! You's are doing great, and I totally need the inspiration!!

    {{{{HUGS}}}} to all!!
