    2. Make doggy cookies.
    3. Sort dishes to donate.
    4. Sort one box from sewing room.
    5. Make WW meals for freezer.
    6. Make stuffed peppers for supper.

    8. Start slippers for Ships Project.
    9. Make buns.
    10. Clean stove.

    MM - you do tons of stuff anyway. I do so little I want full credit for every little 3 minute task!

    I had to unmark one - I hate that! I wasn't as finished putting away random yarn as I thought. I found another aborted project, and that yarn lives in a harder to get to container. Maybe tonight. I also substituted two for the afghan that isn't going to get done.

    12. Mend hem in skirt
    13. Clean out, reorganize living room cabinet
    14. Store toaster oven
    20. Pick out yarn for Julie's afghan
    21. Take out trash and boxes
    24. Put away loose "stuff" from reorganization
    27. Put away random yarn
    30. Find place to temporarily store discard books
    36. Clean up cook-in kitchen mess
    42. Enter receipts, balance accounts
    43. Cash check

    Spirit Deer, I feel your pain. Part of my problem is things got so unorgainzed while I was away that now I can't do *one* thing without doing something else to get that first thing done. It's getting there but geesh!

    Yesterday I got all the chicken jars put away. Ugh...that's always a chore but worth it. Other than that, not much of anything other than general tidying up and BBQ'ing.

    Today I...

    Went to Credit Union
    Went to Bank
    Started more seedlings
    Hand watered plants as needed
    Called JP - need to follow up tomorrow

    As for the bedroom...
    Dust Furniture
    Wipe Doors
    Helmac Lamp Shades
    Wipe Floor Fan
    Windex Pictures/Glass/TV
    Clean Off Bench Seat
    Shake Rugs
    Sweep Floor
    Sweep Under Bed
    Inventory Under Bed Storage
    Mop
    Wipe Screen Door
    Windex Door Glass
    Wipe Doggy Door
    Wipe Walls
    Wash Fake Plant
    Wash Lamp Shades?? - Decided against doing this
    Put Together Can Rotators YAY!!!
    Fill Can Rotators YAY!!!
    Underwear Drawers
    Raggedy Ann and Andy??
    DH – Ceiling Fans
    DH – Light Fixtures
    DH – Dresser Mirror
    DH – Blinds
    DH - Windows

    Tomorrow I'd like to get at least a few minutes of weeding done in the bird bath area early in the morning since DH worked so hard trimming trees and weeding around the pool this weekend. Also have a few seedlings that need tending to. Then I should be able to cruise through the rest of the bedroom and start on the bathrooms. Kitchen is cleaned up, dinner is prepped and ready to get baked off. Calling it a day.

    It's like a big circle around here. We can't do anything till we do something else first, and it's impossible to figure out what should be done first so everything else can get done.

    I didn't do as much as I'd have liked to. I ended up knitting most of the day. Have to quit doing that, but my back isn't very happy yet so I'm still taking it easy and probably will be till the end of the week.

    Tuesday's list:
    1. Write one hour on novel.
    2. Make doggy cookies.
    3. Sort dishes to donate.
    4. Sort one box from sewing room.
    5. Make WW meals for freezer.
    6. Make stuffed peppers for supper.
    7. Cut pieces for one blanket.
    8. Start slippers for Ships Project.
    9. Make buns.
    10. Clean stove.


    I did get out the ground pork for the WW meals so that could thaw and did some other stuff. The slippers are all done, too, so that's the second pair of the four I want to make this month.

    I was trapped in one of the whirlpools of chaos too. When I had to move the bed (neighbor noise, intermittent, but there), then I had to move everything else. Little apartments and furniture are like those old flashioned number puzzles with sliding tiles to maneuver around. That was ok, but then there was all the stuff that has to be moved off table tops and out of cabinets and such before they can be moved. I finally got all of that stowed away yesterday, so order has returned. For a couple of days at least until the "lived in" syndrome kicks in again.

    Left to complete for the week:

    12. Mend hem in skirt
    20. Pick out yarn for Julie's afghan
    27. Put away random yarn
    42. Enter receipts, balance accounts
