    Hmm... overslept and didn't have time to drive DD6 to Sis'... took both girls to the riding farm, then to Mom's, but she hadn't slept much and was cranky (and I'm being polite and understating it...) so my attendance at the baby shower was a quick appearance and then back to pick up the kids... but we got some long-overdue yardwork done, and it saved me a TON of gas not having to make 2 round-trips to Sis' house... so in the end, a net win, I think...

    Tonight and tomorrow...
    Need to do the dishes
    Need to sort clothes
    vacuum downstairs...

    Gonna be mostly tomorrow, I think, totally exhausted tonight... but in a good way...

    Dishes are done, some laundry got sorted (wayyy more to do...), downstairs got vacuumed

    Tonight:
    - Pick up stir fry veggies and milk
    - pick up DD10's prescriptions
    - unload dishwasher
    - sort some more laundry
    - get those plants out of my car
    - put away that basket of "stuff"
    - cancel some subscriptions I'm not using
    - grab p.o. box key so I can return it tomorrow
    - finish checklists

    Yes, that's more than 3, but a lot of them are super-easy... I figure as long as I get 3 done, I'm good, right?

    Got through everything on my list, except of course there's wayyyyy more laundry to do (I did a big basket, about 2 bushels, but there's an ungodly amount more) and I haven't grabbed the key yet, I'll grab that in the morning.

    Wednesday:
    - Check MCR
    - Grab key and return it to Post Office, closing my P.O. Box and saving the renewal fee.
    - MORE sorting of laundry

    AC Moore sent a 55% off one item coupon that's only good tomorrow, so I may swing by there on my way home tomorrow to see if there's anything I want to grab for the Christmas stash (unlikely, I really only have the "difficult" ones left, nothing they'd like at AC Moore) and return some leftover stuff from DD10's party last weekend (a whopping $5, but still, less clutter in my house!)

    Oh, and I also need to check the base papers to see if there are any more progresso coupons-- The CVS I stopped in today for DD10's prescriptions had progresso soups for $.99, all varieties, and with the coupon they come down to $.74... could use some more for the stockpile and for Sis and the "heartier" varieties are something the food banks are always looking for.

    3/3

    Had some extra things to add to the to-do list, but just not feeling it, so will put them on for tomorrow

    - Mark bad outlets at the house
    - Check the Safeway and Giant Ads
    - sort and cull the Tupperware (it's gotten crazy again-- which is a sign that we're using it a lot, which is a GOOD thing...)

    2/3 I didn't get to the tupperware yet, so that's back on the list for tonight...

    Today:
    Sort the tupperware (and the other "stuff" on the countertop)
    Take the girls to the mall (they've earned it and DD10 has a GC for Build a Bear)
    Stop in at Giant for some sale items.

    Teehee, Tupperware STILL isn't sorted or put away... but yesterday I got tons done, to include clambering up on the roof, where I scraped and painted the eaves (they need replacing, but the paint should hold 'em together for a while longer...) and cut away all the crazy ivy blocking the chimney-- we don't use the fireplace because the girls aren't responsible enough to stay away from it, but it's nice to know that it's there if we need it...

    Today I ran some laundry and folded a load of towels and put 'em away, ran a load of dishes, and took a bunch of junk off the porch and out to the curb for trash day tomorrow. I'm calling that my three

    Tomorrow:
    unload and reload the dishwasher
    Dr apt for me
    more laundry sorting (Hubs will leave at 4Am to work a 24, so I'll be able to thump around without him in the way
