    Yesterday I slept way late for me, 8:15 am. Made me groggy and foggy and took a while to get motivated.

    I finished all my laundry

    Clipped my nails

    Got all the bills/banking/budgets done

    Put away all the odds and ends on my desk

    Filed the used check book and pulled out a new one, put in briefcase

    Got our special inventory taken care of updated the thumb drive

    Got all the ground turkey divided up and put in the deep freeze

    Tuesday is normally my easy day. The husband normally cooks and my only chore is to run the sweeper thingy. I think my job has been trying to kill me for the past three weeks, with no end in sight. I came home yesterday and did absolutely nothing but fix myself a casserole, eat and goof off on the computer.

    Today I had my plan all laid out then the husband called (he's still out of town) saying his truck had been repaired and was ready to be picked up. My plan got ditched. I went to the dealer after work, paid the bill, moved the truck to the front parking lot. Came home, got caught up on the Village while waiting for neighbor to get home from work. Neighbor came home, we drove to dealer, picked up truck and I got right back on the Village. Leftovers are waiting. No chores done. To quote the Sugarland song:

    I get home at 7:30, the house is dirty, but it can wait
    'Cause right now I need some down time
    To drink some red wine and celebrate
    Armageddon could be knocking at my door
    But I ain't gonna answer that's for sure
    There's gotta be something more

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    Today I got my Publix run done. I missed the tail end of the Pepsi sale so I'm bummed about that. Today was only a few frozen pizza's on sale for the deep freeze.

    Made my coffee baggies. I make Homemade Iced Coffee and use half regular and half decaf. I try to keep a few baggies ready so all I have to do is dump and steep.

    Got the bills/banking/budgets done tonight so I don't have to do them on Sunday.

    Started early this morning and got my Wal-Mart run done. It was a big run and they didn't have everything on my list so I'll have to hit Publix at some point to pick up the remainders.

    Hit Aldi for some more stocking up and weekly groceries.

    Came home and got everything date stamped and rotated in to the pantry / stockpile.

    Re-organized and wiped as necessary. Some overflow (laundry detergent, softener and misc.) will get moved to the shed. All sitting by the back door. Didn't make it out back because it was drizzly today.

    Tomorrow I'd like to:

    Move stuff to shed
    My laundry and household laundry
    Add washer fluid to my car
    Get chicken in crock pot
    Get roast in the oven, slice, portion, freeze
    Re-package bulk spices
    Order new spices
    Inventory Deep Freeze
    Call in Rx refill

    I have to have a paper/pen list - I've tried an e-list, such as on the notepad on my phone, or my laptop has a "to do" list option.
    Problem is, no matter how much I tell myself that I'll check it, I don't
    I need to be able to scratch it off by hand.... makes me feel better somehow
