    For tomorrow Monday, 1/28:
    1) I need to go to school. It's my first day back. It's all I can do because it takes up my enitre evening after work.

    One sock finished last night and the other one on the needles. (These are for a baby, so hopefully, I can knock this out quickly.)

    I need to type up a week's worth to keep me from drifting toward easy tasks.

    MONDAY: one semi-difficult thing
    Sort for trade (to get book credits) or donation 90% of my CDs and DVDs (emotionally difficult because they are favorite movies, and even though I've saved the music digitally, I still feel uneasy).


    TUESDAY: two slightly less difficult things than yesterday
    Pare my craft supplies down to TWO boxes (attempted before, but missed items sprinkled throughout the house).

    WEDNESDAY: three slightly easier things than yesterday
    Create three recipes that encourage DH to eat rice. (He has promised to try harder if I make them sweet, e.g., with pineapple.)

    THURSDAY
    : four slightly easier things than yesterday
    Clear four drawers and empty four boxes from the closet into those drawers (only necessary items, donate remainders)

    FRIDAY: five easier things than yesterday
    (Payday) Put five items I WANT to purchase today on my "Wait Two Weeks" wishlist instead of buying them.

    SATURDAY: six significantly easier things than yesterday
    Cook three meals today and three entrees to freeze.

    SUNDAY: seven ridiculously easy things
    List seven books on paperback swap to trade and select seven books for donation that no one wanted this week (not many left because I sorted three bookcases New Years Day).

    I completed today's task, although my numbers weren't as high as 90% (that was a random number, anyway), because I really didn't have a great number, and I told myself I could keep all the CDs I have in my car case, and those were from most of the empty cases I had in the box I wanted to sort. I did accomplish a higher number of DVD sorting, just doing it fast and knowing they are probably old enough to find online for free. If the internet is down, I still have eight favorites to get me through a weekend or so.

    It feels good to have that done!

    I also did part of tomorrow's task (art supplies), so I'm going to make tomorrow's two tasks finish art supply storage and discard pre-2012 invoices.

    Finished my sock yesterday.

    Today's two goals:

    1) Send travel request
    2) Start categorizing two boxes of information into a cohesive pile. (If I can even figure out a system today, I'll consider it good)

    It was 75 degrees here today, after we had ice last week, and I played hookie! I'll add the paper sorting to another day. It's supposed to rain tomorrow.

    I finished yesterday's outstanding task, discarding pre-2012 invoices, and today I found three rice dishes sweet enough, perhaps, for my husband to enjoy (i.e., not sneak back into the fridge from his lunch pack), plus an additional one that isn't sweet, but that will probably be okay, because he likes tuna.

    1.) 15-Minute Cheeseburger Rice, sweetened with ketchup, and from my ally, the 15-minute casserole section.
    2.) Caribbean Black Bean Casserole with Mango Salsa (mangoes and honey)
    3.) Orange Ginger Chicken, sweetened with orange juice
    4.) Albacore Vegetable Pilaf
