    ~I'll join again this week after a looooong break from these challenges. My little to-do list is now a page long so I have to get busy!
    I like to list as I finish tasks and aim for 43 by week's end(It is 43 right? It's been so long I don't quite remember).
    I'll check in later.~

    Lucky 13 for sure! I'm on a day shift today (groan), and have an itty-bitty three hour shift tomorrow, and then I'm off for a week. My plans are to be mostly a slug and just sit, but I decided to join in again this week anyway, as an inspiration to at least do something. But I'm setting no goal. I'll just list what I do and see how many I end up with.

    For today:
    1. Catch up on dishes
    2. Work on current afghan

    Nap. As usual when I draw a morning shift, I've had about 4.5 hours of sleep. I'm sure I'll fall asleep in the recliner this evening. Guaranteed.

    Not doing great so far. I was way to tired last night to tackle dishes, but it will get done. I'm running out of forks!

    1. Catch up on dishes
    2. Finish 1/4 of afghan
    3. Finish 1/2 of afghan
    4. Finish 3/4 of afghan
    5. Finish all of afghan
    6. Grocery shopping 1
    7. Put away groceries 1
    8. Grocery shopping 2
    9. Put away groceries 2
    10. Re-pot plants
    11. Apologize to plant I knocked off the shelf and clean up dirt spill when it dries
    12. Clean fountain pens
    13. Puzzle 1
    14. Puzzle 2
    15. Puzzle 3
    16. Crockpot pot roast
    17. Cook pork loin

    Yes, mostly a play week! BIG grocery shopping today. My favorite bargains - 3 2-litre bottles of Coke for .46 (so I got the Real Thing, not Kroger Big K for a change), 4 bags of Sargento shredded cheese for 1.03, and two bags of frozen Fordhook lima beans, one was free, one came to .14. I love them, but don't buy them often.

    Also, two cases of Ozarka water, just an ordinary sale (2.99), but I've started freezing it to take to work, and adding more water as it melts. I'm drinking more water that way, so it's worth it. I'm sorry for the landfills, but I try to use each bottle three times. I figure that won't kill me. Heck, even if it does, I can't afford to live forever anyway!
