    I did 2 for 3 but I tried an additional new recipe so I'm counting my list as done.

    Next 3 -

    *Call health insurance about changing the baby's PCP.
    *Go through coupon box and get rid of expired ones
    *Clean the kitchen floor

    Sunday:
    -Write at least 1 page (20 wishes) : Actually managed 3, trying to make up for the first few days of the year before I set that goals... but it was hard, the kids were interrupting constantly.

    -Pick up remaining kitchen supplies at Home Depot : Done, also had a nice visit with the manager and the kitchen department to find out why my pantry has *NO* shelves and my base cabinets have stationary shelves instead of rollout ones and my sink base is missing a feature I asked for... the good news is that these are supposed all features that can be added after-market and they are expediting that order (I was worried they might have to pull the cabinets we have and reorder from scratch, and I'm getting sick of take-out and microwave food...)

    -Clear back corner of yard and plant peach trees with kids (20 wishes) The weather was great today, and the peach trees went in SUPER easy, so I went ahead and put the blueberries in on the side of the house as well and fixed a part of our bamboo "screen" that had fallen due to wind and children. I didn't clear as much as I'd hoped because my shears and all my tools are lost in the chaos that is my house... but I did rake up one bag of stuff and it will go to the curb Monday night. Also let my happy chickens out to play. They are soooo cute.

    -"me-time" (20 wishes) After the yard work, colored my hair to hide all the greys, soaked in the tub with some froofy-smelling bath salts and body scrub I bought in a set for $2.50 on after-christmas clearance... even put the water jets on! (Can't remember the last time I did that!) Then used some special face stuff I had in the cabinet, moisturized all over and painted my toenails... which look pretty mess, but who cares? I did it!

    Also clipped coupons, of course now I can't find my organizer, and sold an unwanted gc on Plastic Jungle. The stupid label wouldn't print so I'll try it again tomorrow. Have to mail it in and then they'll send me a check. That whopping $17.50 is going towards my $10k wish.

    Monday:
    -Write one page
    -Wash laundry and put some away
    -Call wheelchair company and harrass them about getting their stupid chair out of my house!

    Well, it took all day, but I got my three done.

    For tomorrow (on a plane all day):

    1) Double-check to make sure I packed all my power cords and connectors!
    2) Read
    3) Look up phone number of my ride for Tuesday.

    Had nothing specific to do over the weekend so didn't post.

    Slept lousy and couldn't figure out what I wanted to tackle for the day so I walked in the kitchen and just got to work.

    Ended up:
    Cleaning/dusting/windexing entire kitchen
    Cleaning/dusting/windexing entire dining room
    Cleaning/dusting/windexing entire living room
    Cleaning/windexing both bathrooms
    Windexing pictures and TV in bedroom
    (except floors in all rooms - we don't have any carpet so sweeping/mopping is all done at once)

    Tomorrow/Tuesday
    1 - Call attorney
    2 - Clean bedroom
    3 - Clean office

    3) ski all by myself.
    4) relax. Do a puzzle. Read a book. Read FV. Something.
    Today 1/7 I accomplished my list. I am relaxing now and reading FV. I will look for a book at the inn library in a bit because there's no internet at the condo. They're stuck in the 80's over there. Only the 1800's inn has wifi. go figure.
    Oh, I did some laundry at the condo so I have clean woolies to wear on the slopes. I was starting to stink.


    Tomorrow: 1/8 I will:
    1) ski in the morning until noon. Plenty of exercise
    2) return to the inn for a swim. more exercise and muscle relaxation
    3) read FV online. Relaxation and enjoyment
    4) relax and tidy up the condo for my return trip home. Maybe even pack some stuff up and put it in my car.

    Cheers!
