    Well I didn't do the other two, couldn't get the mower started, but I did plant a bunch of plants and weed the garden a little. I also started programming my new phones.

    Today:
    Call maid service (done)
    Contact handyman to confirm his proposal/set a date for work (done)
    See if I can get mower started
    Finish planting plants

    Ran dishwasher
    Paid bills online, reviewed/updated budget
    Took package to post office
    Returned headset not compatible with phones
    Hit grocery store on lunch hour
    Bought new headset at another store
    Bought some veggies for garden
    Tidied up kitchen
    Put away winter shoes and got out summer shoes
    Cleaned all phone numbers, messages etc., off old phones/answering machine
    Listed old phones on craigslist


    Whew! For tomorrow, 5/19:
    Plant perennial plants and veggies
    Clean kitchen counters
    Empty dishwasher
    Fold clothes and put away
    Hang up some decor been meaning to hang.

    Today has been a pretty much unproductive day and so in hopes of salvaging it, I'm gonna make a 'lil list and see if I can't get just "3" things done [it's 7:30 p.m. so I've still got time, right? lol]

    5/19

    1. Take stuff to Jackie

    2. Write a quick letter to Joan

    3. Sort through newspapers and toss

    I hate when the weather doesn't cooperate. I want to plant some more stuff, but it is so hot and humid here today. I might just get the final tomato in the ground.

    Going on little sleep so doubt I'll get much done today. Really the only thing I "have" to do is:

    - Laundry

    Should I accomplish that mission, I'll be happy. lol

    Well, pretty much a big FAIL on the rest of these chores - but thank God I did a bunch earlier in the day. Yesterday did nothing but throw in a load of laundry and run the dishwasher.

    Today:
    Salt & ant traps on the way home from work
    Clean cat litter
    Empty kitty poop pail

    That's all because at 5 I have a dentist apptmt for two cavities. Ugh.
