    I'll try this week, but I think it may be a wipe out. However, between the furniture moving/reorganizing/indoor gardening, the apartment is a shambles. It's to the point where it's circular. You know how it goes. I can't finish A until I do B to make room for it, but I can't deal with B until C is done, but C won't be possible until A is finished. Gahhhhhhhhhh! I hate that stage, and it just gets worse and worse until suddenly it all falls together.

    I change my rules every week, LOL. This week I also have to be away from home more than usual. I will commit to do 40 things this week, but I don't think I can plan them. I'll just list what I do, and see if I can make it to 40 by next Friday. That's the best I can do this time.

    Today:

    1. Finished crocheting afghan (weaving in zillions of ends and fringe left)
    2. Put gas in the car
    3. Placed Amazon order

    An end of last week success -- I finally moved the yarn to my big wicker trunk and all the full skeins fit in it (remnants in balls are in a big basket). This is the first time in has all fit in the trunk in forever. I could not have squeezed in one more, but I didn't have one more. Success!

    So the de-stashing is beginning to show measurable progress. A triumph!

    (I'm not focusing on the fact that I still have a huge trunk and huge basket of yarn to use up. My glass WILL BE half full!)

    The list continues:

    4. Downloaded audio books

    I did this in past tense, but I'm currently doing it. I had a few selections left to choose on the membership, and I have to haul my computer into work to download them, a real pain. But I have dial up at home and it would take days. I can't do it on the work computer because I would have to download software to do it. At any rate, I will have listening for quite a long time now.

    Just realized that I was using the wrong number of tasks, I did 12, 11,10 when it was supposed to be 12, 10, 8 - it had been so long since I did the pyramid instead of the giant list that I had forgotten. So I will make a list of 3 tomorrow instead of 6 to get back on track.
