    My score - I'm not shooting for perfection, but I need to do a lot better than last year. I'm going to count in my signature successful pyramid weeks. Completing 35 of the 42 will count as success. Since I didn't start until this week, it will x/51. Maybe that will be an incentive.

I'm feeling surprisingly good today and I'm off work, so I'm hoping it will be the incredible shrinking list!

    5. Vacuum living room
    6. Vacuum bedroom
    7. Clean bathroom fixtures

    Well, that was quite a few out. But @)#%(*#%)(*#% I got called in to work tonight. One of the student workers went home for the weekend and is stranded. There were only two scheduled, so that means me to take up the slack. Such is life.

    1. Figure out voicemail on my new work Blackberry
    2. Send payment to pest control
    3. Put Macy's gift card in my wallet
    4. Read one chapter of Twinkie, Deconstructed

    Hahaha. What was I thinking, as if I was going to do anything off this list after getting home from work at 9:45 pm. Heh. My list is long for tomorrow I guess. It'll just have to roll over until it's done!

    I did pay my cell phone. : )

    Sure did! I felt like I was getting nothing done. Doesn't help that I've been in the night shift for the last few weeks. It's funny, When I'm on day shift at my work I can get home and get a ton done. When I'm on the evening or night shift it feels like nothing is getting done. Thankfully next week I have a few days of working very early morning shifts so I get home at 11 or so am. I'll get a ton done that week. : )
