    MW - I can hear the energy and determination behind your words and plan!!

    I have a very busy week coming up - almost to the point of overwhelming, but I am making a plan to keep it from being so. Already moved a doctor's appointment to the next week to ease the week's work some.

    Here goes my overall plan for the week:

    1. Car wash in town
    2. Make bank deposit
    3. Sew red Senior dresses
    4. Sew brown skirts
    5. Put cording in white skirts
    6. Put cording in brown skirts
    7. Create spread sheets for costumes
    8. Cut out teal skirt
    9. Sew teal skirt
    10. cut out aqua bouse
    11. Sew aqua blouse
    12. Put bias tape on aqua print dresses
    13. Put binding on pink dresses
    14. Create master plan for ELL portfolio
    15. Write report for DR
    16. Write report for MJ
    17. Write report for KHY
    18. Write report for JQ
    19. Write report for NDC
    20. Write report for EE
    21. Complete AJ's IEP
    22. Write new student's IEP

    While I know I will be adding more, this will help me be organized.

    It feels so weird to start this on Saturday. My psychological "weeks" start on Thursday after my Tue/Wed off.

    Today:
    Hang clothes to air dry
    Put air dried clothes and all laundry away
    Trial pineapple granny square

    Sunday:
    Wash weekend dishes

    Monday:
    Visit friend, get insurance advice
    Pick up pkg at UPS
    Work: Box 9 of archive files

    I have been set to going through boxes of archive files at the library, and making noting dates and anything unusual in them. It's not a fun job. 45 minutes of the musty old things and I start coughing and it seems a dumb thing to be doing anyway. Who cares? But that's another whole soapbox. I put it off, but I'm running out of excuses, so I need to do at least a couple a week. I'm going to list them here to make myself do them.

    ~I'm in again. I am having a complete preggo brain afternoon. I went out to do some errands and kept zoning out while shopping. That makes it very hard to make a decision about what fabric to buy! I also forgot to make one of my stops so I've added it to DH's errand list for Monday.
    Anyway, so far today:

    1. Buy fabric and interfacing for diaper bag #2
    2. Blog(yesterday's "blog" should have been "post newsletter", preggo brain again!)
    3.clean counters/empty sink
    4.get out handsoaps and lotions from stash box

    I don't think I'll attempt anything else tonight. I'm just beat!~

    MW - love to see your lists dwindling down!!

    Nuisance, of course you're beat - you are pregnant!!

    Seems as if I have had a very busy and full day, but I have not gotten as much done as I would have liked. Need to reassess - perhaps I really don't need to get somethings done until later. Will check in the morning when everything looks better!!

    ~This pregnancy is wearing me out like my first with ds. This one is so incredibly active all the time just like he was. It's comforting feeling all the movement but the insane fatigue that goes with it is hard to handle some days.
    Anyway, here's what I got done today:

    5. clean out gutters(DH did it without me asking him too, yey!)
    6.make cinnamon buns
    7.make apple cake
    8.make and post menu
    9.empty sink,clean counters
    10.take winter bedding and clothes bags to storage(DH)
    11.cut down sticker bushes(DH)

    I probably won't get anything else done today since I'm starting to zone out and I've already had my two cups of half-caf coffee for the day. Any more will keep me up all night.~

    It doesn't look like much, but this "tidy rec room" task has morphed into a major project. I've packed, tossed and freecycled a pile of stuff, but there is still a big mess in the middle of the room.

    Tomorrow I will finish it, but no more today because it stinks of paint.

    ~Ah, that time of day again. My down time in the afternoon is my time to evaluate what I've done so far today and how much energy I may be able to muster to get more done.
    This morning:

    12-14. loads laundry complete to put away
    15. batch of beans for freezer cooked
    16. hm baked beans in the crockpot
    17. rotisserie chicken in the crockpot
    18. cut out & interface diaper bag pieces
    19. draft e-file taxes
    20. clean counters/empty sink

    Luckily I still have a half-caf cup of coffee coming to me so I should be able to work on that diaper bag tonight. I want to make changing pads for the bags so I need to get the actual bags done ASAP so I have time for those.~

    Nuisance, when I first read that I thought you had done 14 loads of laundry.
