    ok, didn't get to the jam or the weeds, I was in tomatoes all day!

    Monday
    not one of my favorite days but am going to try,
    finish tomato sauce
    try to get the jam made
    clean up the jars I canned yesterday to put away.

    I was so tired last night I went to bed at 8:30, didn't wake up until 8:45 this morning, wow, thats the most sleep I have had in months.
    We had another big rain last night so am going to have to wait to pull weeds, its too wet, if you step on the ground you can feel yourself sink. My tomatoes have gotton so much water they are starting to split open. ugh...

    ilc, thanks for the concern, it means alot.

    Z - great buys on your fish!! I just paid 3.99 with a coupon!

    Maui, sounds like you are having a blast, so glad you are feeling better.

    OM, where did you go? Hope you are doing ok, take it easy!

    I just LOVE my dh's new job. Monday's off. 4/10 days. We got almost all the fall yard clean up done today, and taken to the recycler! With his old job he traveled a lot. Especially in the fall. It would take me weeks to get clean up done by myself. And then on weekends we would have to haul it off. Woohoo!!!

    Been watching Breaking Bad marathon most of yesterday, so I've gotten behind in chores.

    For Friday:

    1. finish straightening up the screened porch
    2. send a couple of important emails
    3. look at calendar and decide when to do certain errands for next week

    Ha, Pinetree, nearly! It's definitely piling up again, with the winter stuff down now and summer stuff getting gathered to be put away...

    ... no, DD9 had a REALLY bad episode on Saturday that carried repercussions into the week... lots of time talking to the Drs and lots of extra interventions. The PitA at work was out all week, so I was super-busy doing more of his work than usual, but it's funny, because even though I was doing more, I didn't feel stressed or worn out because I wasn't tripping over his royal idiocy all week. I've been lurking when I had a minute or two, but too busy doing stuff to plan any of it or post. Which is good, because whatever I *THOUGHT* I'd be doing, I seemed to wind up doing 5 other things instead!

    Saturday:
    - Take the kids to AC Moore for a free make-and-take
    - Check out the yard sale I saw signs for
    - Get hubs to move DD6's bed (while HE should be the one to do it, I'LL be worn out from nagging him to!) ;D

    See, nice easy day... probably won't play out that way, but I'm PLANNING for a nice, easy day... the laundry can pile up for just a little longer...
