    Default 2012 Weekly Pyramid Challenge - WEEK EIGHT

    Well, week seven totally got away from me, so I am going to attempt to redeem myself this week! My competition is my spinal cord, which went south on me yesterday, and has me hobbling around and wishing I had a walker. The good news is that the waves of jaw-dropping pain hit me about every three minutes, which means that two-thirds of my day is relatively pain free!!

    Today's back-friendly (or not) chores:
    1. Pull up an inconspicuous piece of carpet in livingroom to see what is under it
    2. Put away clean dishes
    3. Call to cancel dog training today
    4. Call to cancel goat visit on Sunday
    5. De-clutter top of desk in bedroom
    6. De-clutter drawers in desk in bedroom
    7. Measure front of stairs to see if my current baby gate will fit to keep puppies on deck and chickens OFF deck
    8. Check for eggs (if I can walk to the coop)
    9. Clear off top of nightstand
    10. Dust off dresser, nightstand, and desk in bedroom
    11. Practice sit, leave it, and drop it with Angus
    12. Practice sit, leave it, and drop it with Polly
