    Oh I like this! I hope you don't mind a newbie joining. I joined FV years ago but have been MIA for a few years.

    Today:
    • Washed and dryed 3 loads of laundry.
    • Helped DH get the Christmas tree out of the house (real tree).
    • Packed up the rest of the Christmas decorations and got them stored in the basement.
    • Loaded the dishwasher (will run tomorrow when full)
    • Researched several Frugal boards to get back in the swing of things.

    Doesn't seem like a lot but it has been a lazy Sunday

    Ugh....I spent a total of 20 hours this weekend at a dance convention with dd. I'm focusing on that as an accomplishment and trying not to worry about all the things I didn't get done at home as a result!

    Worked all day, so didn't get much done around the house. However, workwise, I was very productive, and what I did today may help someone in the near future to get a better job and have more options in his life, so I'm considering it a day well spent.

    Forgot something...I repaired ds18's knitted cap that a friend bought him that the dog chewed up. Our puppy chewed it on both sides near the brim and so I sewed it up as best I could and then used a ripped HIM shirt of ds' that I had saved ('cause I knew I could make something with it later) to put custom patches over the two sewn spots and I cut out the name of the band from the shirt which was in small letters and made a patch from that and sewed it to the back of the cap. Anyway, he didn't think the cap could be fixed and now he has a custom cap designed by his Mom from his favorite band! I was most pleased with myself for that! It looks so cool!!!

    We cross-posted Photogal so "Way to go!" Tap class? My two aunts are doing that and love it! I've always thought that tap was cool. Are you having fun with it?
