    Got the fridge cleaned, but not getting very far beyond that - sort of lazing around today...

    I did get into to my daughter's changing area and organize the space - not hard since nearly all her clothes are piled up in the dirty laundry . But at least now there is a place to put the clean ones when they are done.

    It's just a challenge we use to get things done during the week - supposed to be little things although it doesn't always work out that way. The structure was originally like a pyramid - 12 items on day 1, 10 on day 2, 8 on day 3, 6 on day 4, 4 on day 5, 2 on day 6, and 1 on day 7. But, we don't always follow the structure, sometimes it's just a big mess of stuff to do

    Maui - what do you think about just having one thread for the whole year in 2011? Just posting a fresh list in the same thread each week? Sometimes I worry we are dominating this section and driving everything else off the page - also will make me feel less conspicuous on weeks when no one else shows up

    Jumping in a little late, but I will try to start from today:

    1) Put out shavings in puppies' pen
    2) Do a load of wash
    3) Move the parrots upstairs for Christmas
    4) Clean off the dining room table and set it for tomorrow's dinner
    5) Clean the deck
    6) Clean the bathroom
    7) Clean the kitchen
    8) Vacuum the livingroom rug
    9) Lay out the area rug I bought for the occasion
    10) Steam mop the hardwood floors (okay, they are laminate, but I can dream, right?)
    11) Stage the kitchen counter for tomorrow
    12) Clean the birds' cages
