    3/3 today. Took it pretty easy today. Tomorrow:

    1. Clean out pantry
    2. Organize pantry. Those will take all day, so...
    3. Rest - I'll need it!

    3/3 today

    I'm thrilled to say that I finished clearing our fence line!!! Seriously, you have no idea how big a deal that is... old chicken wire, grown through with vines and shrubs and brambles, and now all of it's gone, gone, GONE!!! YAY!!! Shaved down to the ground!!! Of course it will try to grow back, but by then, we'll have the privacy fence up, and I'll only have to worry about what comes up on OUR side of the fence, instead of what grows THROUGH the fence...We have a guy coming to do an estimate on Monday... originally we were going to do it ourselves, but Hubs is feeling lazy, and I can't/won't do it myself, and he'd critique every little thing if I tried. And while I'd prefer panels, this guy is apparently looking to do stick-by-stick, which is what Hubs prefers (which will, of course, be far more expensive...ggrrrr!!!)

    Oh, and +1, I moved all the cinderblocks from the neighbors' junk pile over into my yard-- she said I could have them, so I needed to move them now, before there's a big ol' fence in the way!

    Tomorrow:
    -Check out the Home Depot Black Friday Sale... I'm going to see if they will give me a price-adjustment for all that soil I bought in the last few weeks at $3.33 which is now $2... If so, great, if not, oh well. And they are advertising strawberries and vegetables for $2 a pot, so that may be worth the visit.
    - 4 hours at the Garden Center. Maybe. Probably. Hard to say. The schedule is all messed up. I wasn't supposed to work tomorrow, but they asked if I could while I was in today. Then they said "nevermind." Then they called to ask could I do it after all.
    -Rest. I've been overdoing it the past few days and am hurting pretty badly. I still have a ton of brush to run to the dump on Saturday, so a little rest tomorrow is definitely called for.

    In fact, the only reason I'm not at Home Depot tonight is that I kinda can't move! I'm sure the Aleve will be kicking in soon... if not, there's always vodka!

    Our tendency to overdo does tend to cause aches and pain - I overdid pool exercises today - while it felt great at the time, my body is talking to me now.

    Only have 2 dresses to hem which I will do and deliver Sunday
    Most of the sewing stuff is put away!
    Will be getting up early to do the soccer stuff

    Friday

    Soccer stuff complete & deliver
    10:30 haircut
    Clean out refrigerator

    hope you are feeling better soon, Mauimagic, wow do you have alot going on!

    I am really trying to ignore what my body tells me, and it just isnt working anymore, so I guess I am going to have to let it have its way, I sure can't recover like I use to.

    Z, wtg on the fence line, good luck with home depot.

    Well, not working at the garden center today after all... DD6 has been throwing up since 3AM. I feel bad for not going in, but it's also a very weird, free feeling... after 20 years of being in the military, being able just call in and say "Yeah, I can't make it..." and there's no worry about being AWOL... the worst they can do is fire me, and it's not like I actually NEED the job... Weird feeling...

    But I did wrap up Ms-Pukey and we did go to Home Depot. I'm glad we didn't wait until the weekend, as things were already looking pretty picked-over, but I was able to find some things I could use.

    So aside from resting, which I'm doing, I promise... my third thing is now trying to wash things as fast as she vomits on them! Ah my glamorous life!!!

    3/3 again! I'm on a roll!
    Tomorrow we're going to try to get some more of the garden stuff done. I'd like to get the lettuce and peas planted if I can. Unless it's raining, if it rains we'll probably work on the craft room. I'm very excited to get that all done.

    dh hit home depot, got soil, weed fabric for the drive way, anaheim pepper plants, weed and grass killer, so enough to keep us busy for awhile.

    yesterday I peeled cut and froze 15 lbs of carrots, organic and we got them for .59 a lb. froze them instead of canning them,

    All this talk about working outside makes me envious! It's still too cold for me to get outside and do anything. Forgot to post my list for today so I'll jump ahead to tomorrow.


    Sunday:
    vacuum furniture and carpet
    plan menu for week/grocery list
    do research

    drink coffee and enjoy the Sunday paper
    check for coupons
    finish up laundry

    Yesterday I ended up helping DH clean out and inventory the freezers, ugh, I am going to try and keep a copy on the front of the freezer so we know whats in it. I have some meat that the food saver bag opened so will cook the meat and use it for cat food.

    Still havent worked on the yard, guess its not going anywhere...

    Hand on RABBIT, it won't be long and you will be out in the yard too! I can't beleive all the weeds this year!

    MM are you getting excited about your trip? I would be packed already!!
