    Last week was rough, and I had a lot of stragglers (about half a dozen) that I didn't get done. This week, I'll be out of town almost the whole week, so I am going to try to list 43 REALLY simple things that I can get done this morning, or in the 48 hours or less remaining in the week after I get back.

    2. Pick up toys in daughters bedroom
    3. Three loads of laundry
    4. Finish taxes
    5. Send Taxes

    7. Interview meeting for full time
    8. Clip Coupons
    9. Put away coupons
    10. Clean off top of fridge
    11. Clean bathroom mirro
    12. clean bathroom sink
    13. toss trash in bathroom
    14. pull down recycling and trash on tues night
    15. spend 30 minutes in GR cleaning
    16. buy cat litter
    17. pay cell phone bill
    18. clean cat box
    19. library to bring movies back

    23. Print out Groupon
    24. Print out Crowdcut
