    I h aven'tbeen doing this, but need to next week. I have the week off - I insisted on it. Because last night I learned that I am being asked to work the day shift from June 28 to August 23. Bummer big time. I am so spoiled to my out of sync schedule. Anyway, I need time to shift from going to bed around 3:30 to getting up at 5:00.

    This week I'll be putting together a list of all the things I MUST get done before my schedule change. On top of the list - car inspection, that I keep forgetting, and serious grocery stock up while I can still do it while everyone else is at work!

    I'll see you Saturday or Sunday with a Plan.

    ~We'll be very glad to have you Donna!

    I feel like I've been getting nothing done. I'm letting myself get distracted by other tasks. It's frustrating! I'm glad today is only a 2 item day so I can catch up some more.

    1. order kids' beds(I'm having the hardest time spending the $250, urg...)
    2. 30 minutes cleaning(kids' rm)
    3. cut ds hair
    4. cut dd hair
    5. make applesauce, juice for jelly
    6. ship gift
    7. dig up and give hibiscus
    8. box one shelf of books
    9. sort and wrap treasure box items
    10.decide on F-Day gifts
    11.30 minutes cleaning

    So all I'm adding today is:

    1-2. 30 minutes cleaning

    D-Day..........company arriving this evening. Living room is done, Kitchen is almost done again (need to do some dishes, wipe counters down, stove top, sweep floor). Hallway still needs to be done, but if I concentrate on that I can have that done in an hour. The bathroom is the last room.....

    It is so hot and humid today that I can only work for a few minutes, then have to go to the a/c and cool down. ONLY have a/c in the bedroom.

    But since our company is not due to arrive until about dark, I still have time... That's how my day is working. We are not perfect, but we are acceptable....for me, that's really good.

    ~LO:
    1. order kids' beds(I think I may have to have DH do this, I just can't seem to click "submit order")
    2. 30 minutes cleaning(kids' rm)
    3. cut ds hair
    4. cut dd hair
    5. dig up and give hibiscus
    6. box one shelf of books
    7. sort and wrap treasure box items
    8. decide on F-Day gifts

    And my one thing for today is to cook, bake and make as much as possible. I have a triple batch of banana bread and peanut butter bars in the oven. Apple jelly is cooking on the stove. And I have my bottles washed out for the next batch of homemade root beer. Tonight I plan to quadruple my pizza recipe(8 medium pizzas). Some will be pizza, some breadsticks and some pizza/ham & cheese pockets for the freezer. Thankfully the cheese is already grated!

    Last day of the week everyone. Let's make it count!~

    Tuesday thru Friday:
    The electrical guy has been here 2 days for the whole day and has gotten a lot done. He is due back Monday afternoon to finish one more project and then he will be done. His boss will come and inspect a day or so later and then, hopefully, we will be done. I have been baking this week. I made 2 new cookie recipes and used up some baking supplies that need using. Wal-Mart, Publix and 2 trips to CVS were necessary this week as we are getting really low on some of the necessities I like to have around. This is good as it means we are using up our supplies, not just buying premade goods. Unfortunately, I am way behind on laundry. The electric guy has been using the laundry room as his base of operations and the power has been out in there off and on. My coupons are up to date and my refunding is coming along slowly. Not a bad week for accomplishments; but, not the best by far either. I am really enjoying reading everyone's lists and accomplishments.
