    2.5/3 I didn't finish the books. I have soooo many. Tomorrow:

    1. Finish the book sort.
    2. clean & organize the kitchen junk drawer.
    3. Look for craft ideas for all these coffee filters I was given...they're a little too big for my pot. Maybe something for Easter.

    2/3, +2

    I did do the "big" grocery shop today, and did spend a lot of time on the phone with the finance office, trying to find out who needs to do what to get my payment from 2 months ago "released." It's all calculated, it's "there." It's just stuck. Like chips that don't fall down in the vending machine--the world's most expensive chips... ;D

    I *DIDN'T* do the third garden bed today, but that is because the weather was nice enough that I rented a powerwasher and did the deck, instead. Unfortunately, it's BIG deck, and it hadn't been done in an embarrassingly long time, so it took HOURS. Tomorrow morning I need to go over the spots I missed, because I'm sure there are some (many.) Then I'm going over to my parents' house to do their fence and siding-- Mom said she wanted Dad to do it for her birthday (which is Friday.) I told Dad I'd pay the couple extra bucks to change my 4-hr rental to 24 hours, and then he could do the labor... yeah, that is rapidly turning into "I bring the washer, I do the washing, he sleeps in..."

    Wednesday:
    - touch-up the deck
    - do fence and siding for Mom
    - return washer

    Oh, and my other +1 for today was that I swapped out our empty propane tanks for full ones.

    Happy Birthday to you Mom Z, how nice of you to do the pressure washing for her, and your Dad!

    Mauimagic, stay safe, heard you were under a warning, this pacing yourself is harder than I thought, it doesn't take much to wear a person out!

    Jen, are you feeling better?

    3/3 today. I discovered something about me today...I have definite issues with getting rid of stuff! My books are like family, and I could only let go of about 30 of them, and my junk drawer... well I don't really want to talk about that.
    Tomorrow:

    1. set up my candy making spot in the dining room.
    2. make grocery list for candy supplies I need.
    3. call in and go pick up a couple of prescriptions.

    Pinetree, I'm feeling a lot more normal. No fevers and my energy level is increasing. Thanks for asking.

    3/3 today, +2
    - touched-up my deck and went ahead and did the east face of the house where there was a bit of green going on
    - Took the washer over and did the fence and siding for Mom. I did it instead of Dad and told him that that was HIS birthday present. He grinned and said, "Thank you!" So hey, two birthdays knocked out for $10! (that's how much extra it cost to keep the machine for 24 hours instead of 4...)
    - and returned to Home Depot with 16 minutes to spare!

    -Also finally got around to filling the third garden bed
    -Got fresh gas in the mower and worked on clearing the fence line, made some really good progress!

    Thursday:
    - Straighten up a bit
    - 5 hours at the garden center
    - work on the fence line some more

    My yard was looking all green and the daffy's are blooming, now everything is covered in white again, ugh, I know April is our month for alot of snow, but, I sure wish spring would sprung.. if thats a word, but the sun is melting the snow pretty fast.
