    Got the project done (finally) so all good for yesterday. This morning I ran the dishes and two loads of laundry, and Hubs is working a 24, so tonight I really have no excuse not to use the big, empty bed to get all the laundry sorted (sigh...)

    So today:
    Review the new grocery ads
    Check the base paper (free) for any good coupons
    Pay the bills (payday is tomorrow, but usually posts after 5 the night before)
    and laundry... :/

    Ayaynka, that's not your laundry, btw, it's mine... I have such a big pile it stretches all the way to Belgium! ;D

    If so I am having good news Zhoen, I am done doing the laundry. Only I really doubt you have such a pile as I managed to squeeze mine into our wardrobe (2 people, 1 wardrobe). I got everything done but the cooking. My BF has a problem with his car (again) and he will be home later, so I don't want to start preparing things just to have them waiting at roomtemperature or back in the fridge. But I am still proud of myself with the progress so far.

    My to do list for tomorrow (just going to do the cooking/dishes for tonight):

    1. Cleaning the bathroom
    2. Clean the microwave,
    3. Clean the fridge
    4. Clean one of the grills from the oven
    5. Make dinner using todays groceries

    1/4.. did review all the ads and make a list, but the paper wasn't available (either they didn't do one this week, or the delivery guy was running wayyy late... will check again tomorrow.) Decided to wait for Hubs to be home tomorrow and do all the bills at once. And of course, I didn't do the laundry!

    But, +3, I entered my MCR points and discovered they had started their holiday promos. yay. I took the DDs to the store for stuff to pack for DD6's field trip lunch tomorrow (had to be all disposable) and DD10 is packing tomorrow, too. And finally went through the coupons from last Sunday, not much there, but at least the papers are off the mantle. Oh, also ran some dishes.

    Friday:
    Pay bills
    some laundry
    hit a sale or two on the way home (Aldi's has 10lb potatoes for $1.99 and $.99 cranberries)

    So much to do today!

    DD6 has a b-day party this afternoon, so we need to buy a gift for that, and DD10 has money and wants to buy a new video game.

    Meanwhile, yesterday was "clean out your fridge" day, so I'll be doing that today... nothing too gross in there, I'm happy to say, but it's a good idea to get everything really clean and wiped down before cramming it full of holiday food.

    Speaking of which, we are hitting a different grocery today for their sales (had to wait for the coupons to come this morning.)

    And then, weather permitting (iffy, it rained last night and is cold and grey this morning...) plenty to do in the yard and some stuff that needs taking to the dump...

    So, nothing life-altering, nothing too awful, but that's my Saturday to-do. Hopefully mixed generously with quality time with the kiddos and a pot of tea in there somewhere.

    Have a great weekend!

    Saturday - this is my day to pick out any flat surface and work on it so it is cleared off and usable! That is what I am going to do all day in each and every room that I happen to be in.

    3/4 yesterday... got the shopping done, two runs to the dump, and FINALLY got that old tree trunk cut up and gone!!! But didn't get to cleaning out the fridge.

    So now the shelves are soaking, and I'll be finishing that up in a bit. And since I already have the tub full of bleach-water, may as well clean that bathroom, huh?

    So today:
    Deep clean upstairs bathroom
    Clean family room before Once Upon a Time tonight
    Take the kids mini-golfing (weather permitting)
