    1. Take some of the stockpile to trailer
    2. Take a few clothes/towels/SOMETHING to the trailer
    3. Try to get the curtains hung over there
    4. Get as many of the cabinets there washed/dusted out as my back will allow.
    5. IF my back isn't shot when I get back get the dishwasher emptied, reloaded and pots and pans on the stove handwashed..don't put those in dishwasher.
    6. Get washer stuff transfered to dryer and dryer stuff folded or boxed.
    7. Get another load in washer.

    May or may not get all this done. Depends on how long my back holds out.
    Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

    The list was for Sunday which is the only whole day I have off.

    We got 1 pair of the curtains hung...couldn't find the other pair we bought which bothers me.
    Got all the top shelves of cabinets cleaned/dusted and shelf lined.
    Got quite a few, not nearly enough, bags of the stockpile taken over and put away. I'm sure I'll change where they go but there for now.
    Did number 6 with the laundry
    Number 7 Hubby did as far as unloading and loading dishwasher. Didn't get the pots and pans washed.

    That was it. Was there for most of the day and climbing on and off chair. Paid for it that night and next day.
    All in all think I done pretty good.

    Yes, it was a large list.
