    For today, Tuesday, I really did not get much around the house done. I did fill up the gas tank in the car. Then I drove 20-25 minutes to pick up df at a somewhat central location and then drove both of us about 25-30 to her mtg that she asked me to attend. Lots of discussion. The meeting lasted about 1 and a half hours. After that drove another 10-15 minutes to restaurant for lunch. Very nice lunch and we had a very nice visit. Then drove us back to our original meeting place so she could drive home (about 30-35 minutes) and then I drove me home (another 20-25 minutes). Got home between 2:30 and 3:00 with a splitting headache. Answered some text messages and went to lay down for half an hour and have been moving slow since. Dinner is in the oven.

    Mary - list the things that you are getting done - that's what I do. Sometimes I delete on the list items; othertimes I just add them on to my at home list.

    ephofma - hope you are feeling better - you sure were busy today!!

    Mamamia - no need to quit - just make this thpe of thing work for you. Some weeks, I haven't had a list and just posted what I actually did. Personally, I found that I got more done with a large master list......and if I do other things - list them so you can give yourself credit.

    Today I .....
    *figured out how to work in pool exercise time after school (I changed into my bathing suit after school and stopped by the pool on the way home!!)
    *posted Valentine day card swap participants
    *hemmed both pairs of DH's jeans
    *15 mins work on online class

    That's it so far. I'll see what else I can do as I watch TBL!!

    Dont scare me like that Debbie
    I start and stop every thing on Sunday, not sure why, but it is difficult for me to start my week on any other day except Monday. Maybe because its part of my work week I dunno

    I am chucking some of the things I wanted to get done this week because events happened that just aren't going to let me complete them. I still may get some done over the weekend.

    1. Finish sleeves of sweater
    8. Remove empty boxes from troop support room
    10. Clean Bird Cage
    11. Clean Hearth
    16. Freecycle Wicker Headboard
    20. Pay Bills
    22. Fling 5 things
    24. Update blog
    27. Spend 1/2 working on budget
    29. Fling 5 things
    31. Organize pegboard
    32. Find paint for DR
    34. Fling 5 things
    35. Update blog
    36. Computer to repair
    38. Clean under kitchen sink
    39. Update planner
    40. Organize troop support shelves
    41. List 5 things on Ebay

    I did get my bathroom closet somewhat cleaned out and just worked 1/2 hour on a new shelving area with wicker baskets that I built from a four foot dead space that was off the kitchen.

    Okay, I never got to home depot on the weekend, so the first three will have to carry over. Everything that's left involves potential mouse encounters. *sigh* Have to face them eventually I guess.
