    Late jumping in, but today, I:

    1) Got the tree out of my truck and stored it back in its box;
    2) Swept the downstairs birds/bunnies' room;
    3) Transferred the bunnies' food into a Vittle Vault (small thing, but I've been meaning to do it forever)

    Ok, so this morning I meant to pay the balance on the remodel, empty out the kitchen so work can start tomorrow, and pick up the blender somebody from Freecycle said yesterday I could have.

    And guess what? I actually did all three! I think that's my first 3/3! Yay!!! (now I can be a bum the rest of the year, right?)

    Wednesday-
    Check MCR for the Wednesday deal (hey, it's frugal-ish...)
    drop donations at SA... peruse the action at the store (half-price on Wednesdays) and do my best not to come home with anything unneccessary...
    set up kitchenette on the bar downstairs

    ETA: Pinetree, if it makes you feel any better, I worked for about 2 hours on sorting and putting away laundry last night... and I *swear*, the pile is actually bigger today. At least your AC isn't spreading out into additional windows...
