    Yes, today is Sunday. You can start whichever day works best for you. I decided, personally, to start on Sat, because I wanted the weekend to knock out the bulk (22 items) of my challenge.

    Okay, I'm back. Turns out I am really, really lazy if I don't post in here.

    I don't have a list for Sat & Sun, but I did get a lot of little things done that have been weighing on me: errands in town, some paperwork, and organizing the cold room (two miscellaneous boxes left to go, and we are officially unpacked).

    Monday:
    1. Take boxes out to garage
    2. Bag paper for recycling, take garbage to garage
    3. Tidy bedrooms
    4. Vacuum upstairs
    5. Make laundry detergent
    6. Pick up stuff at Superstore
    7. Check AirMiles site
    8. Finish ARM assignment

    Madhen - I love "mother ship account." I don't know what you use it for, but I'm thinking that would be a fun thing to call my long term emergency savings on my computer.

    Still working on internet, but done for present. I switched from AOL to Netzero yesterday. About a week and a half ago, AOL abruptly started started giving me connection speeds (dial up) around 24000 bps and dropping the connection all the time. Once I literally washed dishes while waiting for a page to load. The computer whiz at work thinks it's AOL, not my computer. It is still painfully slow, but endurable if there's something I really want to do, like check this list today since I didn't make a copy of it. DSL isn't available here, and cable would cost me $40 a month. Not happening while I have lightning internet at work and hours of empty time there to play online.

    11. Put away completed puzzle
    12. Pattern repeat 3 on afghan
    13. Pattern repeat 4 on afghan
    14. Pattern repeat 5 on afghan
    15. Hexagon snuggle
    16. Clear off trunk
    17. Clear off rolling cart
    18. Complete updating LA sales tax records for 2010
    19. Begin LA sales tax list for 2011
    20. Put away crochet books
    21. Synchronize clocks
    22. Take out trash
    23. Find 5 new recipes in new cookbooks
    24. Crockpot dish for Fri-Sun work
    25. Brown hamburger
    26. Make 2 skillet dishes
    27. Prepare salad veggies
    29. Cook vegetable dish for week
    31. Redo med organizers with new prescription
    32. Declutter kitchen
    33. Transfer new audiobooks to storage hard drive
    34. Call apartment office to have trap removed
    35. Finish winding white baby yarn
    36. Make one of the new recipes
    37. Make one of the new recipes
    38. Make quiche
    39. Cook frozen rolls - yum, get that temptation over with
    40. Start food journal
    41. Inventory freezer
    42. Partial inventory stockpile
    43. Clear off computer table

    MM - my grocery shopping was incredibly virtuous on the way home from work yesterday. The checkout line food police would have had no cause for complaint!

    That is my nickname for my main checking account, out of which I pay my fixed bills; ie, the mortgage, electric, phone. That is a traditional account through my credit union, and then I use my ING account for groceries and incidentals.
