    I'm still not doing what I should. It just seems like there's too much going on lately.

    LOL. I haven't done much but knit and wait for my sore back to feel better.

    This will be a busy week, as I have to prep for a Dutch oven demo I'm giving.

    I guess I did do a few things today.

    ~Sorted accordion file full of old craft patterns and recycled about 90% of them.

    ~Finished knitting second sleeve of UFO sweater and got part of it sewed together.

    ~Started making plans for building a stair rail from scratch, since Lowe's doesn't have what I need.

    ~Made a hotdish for supper, husband's lunch tomorrow, and for the freezer.

    ~Put away some of the treasures found at the GW Boutique yesterday.

    ~Sliced up a block of cheese so it's ready for quesadillas.

    My back is better, thanks. Shopping and sitting in a truck all day really do a number on me anymore.

    Today I:
    ~went to an appointment.
    ~learned to do needle tatting.
    ~created menu for DO demo.
    ~looked up recipes for DO demo.
    ~shopped for groceries for DO demo.
    ~started typing up hand-outs for DO demo.
    ~resisted temptation to buy bad snacks in favor of eating WW black bean soup from my freezer.
    ~printed patterns for knitted capelet, fingerless gloves, and hats and slippers for the Ships Project.
    ~dug up plexiglass to use to modify tortilla press.
    ~weighed myself.

    Not much again, but better than nothing.

    Good to hear from you MH and glad you are back into the pyramid!!

    Here's what my day started like - the changes are at the end.
    Hem Desirae’s slacks
    Clean off sewing table
    Clean off chair
    Clean off side of bed
    Organize clothes for week
    Check for church dress pattern
    Clean out car
    Wash car

    Ending up in a new doctor's office this afternoon - closer to the training than driving home - pain all day. So I had tests done this afternoon and will have a CAT scan tomorrow morning - funny how life comes along to wipe out our besst laid plans!!

    I hope you are taking newcomers because this is EXACTLY what I need right now!

    I had a family emergency back in late June that pretty much kept me away from home for the next five weeks. Things are still not normal but are getting better. The ordeal has left me stressed and completely out of sorts and the house has suffered terribly. DH did his best and did one super house clean that helped a lot but everything needs a good deep scrubbing and lots of little things just need to tending to.

    I went back and found the first thread so I would know the rules and I'm gonna do a modified version based on a list that I make. I'll post my starting list tomorrow.

    MADH - so glad you've joined us!! Originally MadHen started this thread with the idea on an upside down pyramid to support getting all those little things done during the week - by the end of the week, there would only be one activity left - start with 13 and subtract two each day.

    Now this has evolved into being more of an accountability thread that each sets up to best benefit what they want to do. In SD's case this week, she's listing what she has accomplished during the day. I'm still trying to keep my feet under my, but my life is crazy this week so my posts are probably going to be different each day.........so see what fits best for you.

    I'm just out here printing hand-outs for the Dutch oven demo today. I wish it was over. The weather is rainy and breezy. Hope it doesn't storm.

    Later I have to get all the prep done for the food I'm going to make. That shouldn't take real long though. I hope.
