    I don't know if all the things I did today are what I would have put on my list yesterday if I'd had time to write it... but I got lots done... mostly little things, but they have a way of adding up!

    Tomorrow:
    - IEP meeting with the school for DD9... wish us luck!
    - Wrap up a few Christmas presents and get them safely tucked away
    - And, yes, the laundry... I *DID* do some this morning and yesterday... there's progress...
    - Maybe stop by the grocery for some coupon stockpiling... maybe not... no rush, have 'til the end of the month on most of it...

    Yesterday 1+ out of 3... the IEP meeting was the big focus of the day, and while we are sticking with a 504 while they do the IEP evaluation process, they gave us every accomodation we asked for, starting immediately, so I'm pretty happy with that. But before the meeting I had a lot of nervous energy, so I got the laundry closet all cleaned out because the kitty had decided that was a good place to throw up, wayyyy in the back, behind the hot water heater...

    Today:
    -Pay bills
    -drop stuff at charity and possibly go in to look for a cabinet
    -organize DD9's special-care binder to include new 504 and stuff...
    - sync all the calendars

    Yesterday,3/4, the binder is still a work-in-progress. And I left the wall calendar under my desk at work. Ergh! And Hubs already has changes to it...

    Today was a good day. The girls are learning to clean "their" bathroom... and they were proud of themselves. DD9 folded some laundry to "pay me back" for a stuffed animal she fell in love with and got me to buy for her. We got the deep freezer defrosted, cleaned, and organized (it looks so empty without all that ice! ;D ) ready for my next binge at the grocery, whenever that may be... And tonight we went to the county fair. $6 to get in (DD6 was free and DD9 was free with a coupon)... $13 for dinner and a lemonade... $50 for two all-you-can-ride bracelets... and $80 to "win" two giant stuffed animals without throwing a single dart (I asked if I could just buy the danged things... the girls weren't looking, they think I popped 60 balloons with darts.) All money well spent. I've been looking for those particular animals online, but they are giant knock-offs of Ty Beanie Boos... and I didn't know the name of the knock-off company, so couldn't find them online. So if the girls happen to think I'm a wizard at darts now... ok... I can live with that! ;D

    Tomorrow:
    Try to get the van in at Pep Boys to get the coolant leak fixed
    Clean the kitchen
    Baking
    Yard work if the weather is nice again

    Spent yesterday taking care of others and doing community service - good fun!

    I started today with 60 minutes of pool exercises - that felt great!

    Cleaned up the sitting area in the living room and am starting on all the others little areas.

    Next on to getting all the paperwork ready to complete our 2012 taxes - yes we always get an extension!

    Tonight I am going to clean off the top of our bedroom dresser.

    Tomorrow:
    Pool exercises (30-60 minutes)
    Start working on my craft room
    Clean and organize the side office area in LR
    Fill out and mail retirement form

    my to do list

    keep checking on water levels
    watch for water around house
    keeping in touch with neighbors

    keeping the house clean is Not important to me at this time, there is So much devastation right now its hard to breathe, until this flooding and rain stops, I don't think I will be doing very good with my lists. We are ok, (colorado) but everything around us is flooded, gone, its unreal, like a real nightmare. So many people have lost everything, alot of people we know are just heartbroken, its so sad, depressing, and the rain just won't stop!! I'll be back in a couple days when the sun comes out.

    Am praying for all involved Pinetree. The stress and strain makes it almost unbearable. Sounds like you have your priorities straight!

    Today- ran some dishes, left the rest soaking
    -attended training for parents of special-needs kids... day 1 of 2
    - tried to re-re-sync the calendars, since everything changed. On the upside, hubs will be able to meet the bus a lot more often, on the downside, I now have a conflict between something for my daughter and a babyshower for an old friend/maid-of-honor at my wedding/I never, ever get to see her anymore because of work and DDs.... gotta figure that one out... can't miss EITHER event... ergh...

    Tomorrow:
    Attend day 2 of the conference
    Try to get the rest of the dishes done
    try to locate my living room amid all this chaos...

    Today has been a good day so far. Is it coincidence that my husband left at 4am and won't be back until 7 tomorrow AND my pita co-worker is out all day? I think not...

    So far today I have:
    Gotten the dishes all washed
    Run some laundry
    Sorted a great deal of laundry
    (All that before work!)
    Picked up a few things that hit stock-up prices at the grocery
    Identified the loss leaders to pick up at a DIFFERENT grocery when the sale starts tomorrow
    And actually gotten some work done, too...

    Tonight:
    Get extra copies of the good coupon in the base paper to stock up on that item
    Put away the rest of the dishes (were running in the washer when I left)
    sort and cull the tupperware
    buy plane tickets for Christmas (left the chosen CC at home by accident)
    pull down the winter clothes
    sort the rest of the laundry, get it all put away, get the summer clothes put up
    and sweep the kitchen

    and will I be able to get all of that done? Probably. Why? Because I won't have a husband in the way tonight! ;D
