    Move recliner
    Clear and move work table
    Clear off and move trunk
    Move bookcases
    Move computer and printer
    Vacuum living room
    Put away puzzle table

    Saturday:
    1. Clear off writing-dining table
    2. Move toaster oven and freezer
    3. Declutter bedroom
    4. Deliver snuggles
    5. Deliver lapghans
    6. Call Mardorina
    7. Change email for online sites
    8. Send out email change of address to contacts
    9. File crochet patterns, move pattern books

    Early is good Donna - mahalo for getting us going!! Shall post tonight after I have time to plan. Think I may be a little overextended in all I need/want to do - a plan will help - saying no just might help more!!

    MM - Saying no is good too. Except what I tend to say no to is washing dishes, vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom....

    After I get over the shock of paying for cable for the internet - no tv, so no bundle, so $$$$ - I'm thinking of hiring someone I know to come in and deep clean the kitchen/bathroom/floors about once a month. I can keep up with day-to-day pretty well, but the heavier cleaning is becoming more physically taxing. I just have a hard time getting my mind around paying someone to do something I feel like I should, and could, be doing myself. A friend has been urging me to do this for some time, so I'm probably going to look into it this weekend -- the "call Mardorina" on the list.

    8. Send out email change of address to contacts
    10. Clean microwave
    11. Refill sweetener packets container
    13. Update FV and CV signatures
    16. Fold and put away laundry
    17. Download audiobooks
    18. Pineapple square
    19. Pick out new baby blanket pattern

    Sunday:
    20. Cull old and clip new coupons
    21. Make grocery list
    22. Four pattern rows on lapghan

    The onion sets didn't get planted, primarily because I can't figure out where I can sacrifice a plot of land to them. I'll have to look around tomorrow.

    For Sunday:
    1. Finish laundry
    2. Sweep hallway floor
    3. Damp mop bedroom and hallway floor
    4. Transplant at least one thing from the deck into the ground
    5. Finish book
    6. Move two planters off deck
    7. Sow grass seed in back "yard"
    8. Make hummus
    9. Sweep bunnies' room
    10. Move dog food into storage (instead of in a box in the middle of my bathroom floor)
