    Your Monday looks mightly ambitious Piney!!

    A little more work and our LR will be totally straightened up!! Love starting the week this way - just hope I don't mess it up so badly next week!! Having a weekly massage serves as a good incentive since she sets up her table in our LR!!

    What you're "supposed" to do is attempt to tackle big or small jobs in or around the house from large to small or from small to large depending on your preference.

    For example:
    Saturday - 12 things
    Sunday - 10 things
    Monday - 8 things
    Tuesday - 6 things
    Wednesday - 4 things
    Thursday - 2 things
    Friday - 1 thing

    The pyramid-method doesn't have to be followed. I just put a mammoth to-do list on this thread and try to get things done.

    KimZ - Mad Hen started the Pyramid Challenge last year I think - and the original idea was that on Monday you would post 13 things you wanted to do - then two less each day until the week and your projects/chores were finished. We've sort of modified it as we went along to make it work for each individual. I think that we've all realized the importance of getting it all down in writing to make it easier to be accountable and successful!! Please join us!!

    Wow, everyone's so busy! I'm still writing and plan to continue that into infinity, I hope. I've decided I can type 1,000 words per hour. Of course, that includes typing about 2,000 words incorrectly, so I hope my typing improves. It would help if I could quit switching between three different keyboards. Or maybe it's just that my fingers are all thumbs.

    Today I plan to finish my clothes airer, unless it gets too hot. I already cut the boards for it this morning so it shouldn't really take very long.

    I have to make dog biscuits, too.
