    I am moving one of my stragglers from last week into this week as my Monday project: write that report. It is work-related anyway, and I don't feel like giving up my Sunday.

    I'm going to copy FN today, because I spent morning-2pm researching my answer to one class's online discussion question (DQ). I don't know how most everyone in the class answers in a few sentences, when I consider the questions much more complicated (today's: explain your town's disaster mitigation plan). Oh, well, I'm learning a lot.

    Monday: Answer one DQ for disaster mitigation class.
    Tuesday: Prepare two dishes to divide between lunch & freezer.
    Wednesday: Dust three downstairs rooms.
    Thursday: Pack four boxes of items for donation.
    Friday: Find five sources for paper due 2/18, start notes
    Saturday: 1) Delegate six chores to DH + 5) do five chores DH forgets
    Sunday: (from last week) Offer for trade seven books.

    MM, you can always do what I did and just post to last week's thread, to get that sense of closure.

    Today's chore is done. Moving on to tomorrow's:

    1) Go to gym
    2) Send records request to BH

    jmd, I hope I don't live in a town where the disaster mitigation plan can be summed up in a few sentences!

    I cooked a turkey breast yesterday and used leftovers for casseroles this morning. I didn't get as creative as intended because, for me, one of the worst parts about being frugal is the dish washing, I overdid it last week, and on Saturday lost my frugal willpower.

    Monday: Answer one DQ for disaster mitigation class.
    Tuesday: Prepare two dishes to divide between lunch & freezer.
    Wednesday: Dust three downstairs rooms.
    Thursday: Pack four boxes of items for donation.
    Friday: Find five sources for paper due 2/18, start notes
    Saturday: 1) Delegate six chores to DH + 5) do five chores DH forgets
    Sunday: (from last week) Offer for trade seven books.

    I didn't finish my dusting. An unexpected visitor dropped by today, and I was happily distracted. I'll finish tomorrow.
