    Good Morning, Dearies, and Happy New Year!

    Ok, so my three things for today are:
    1-Take down the tree (normally do this on the first, sooooo behind!)
    2-Get all the presents put away
    3-Get the suitcases unpacked
    4-Get everything that belongs in the attic up into the attic

    Yes, I said three, and that's four, but technically that could all be summed up into one "get the holiday $#*t out of here! In which case I could add two more "straighten up the family room" and "return the library stuff."

    Of course just because I wrote it down, now I won't do any of it! ;P

    For Saturday:

    1) Mop (puppy Sadie can really mess up a floor, even with puppy pads everywhere)
    2) Post the weekly menus
    3) Clean out litter boxes
    4) Continue packing away Christmas stuff (I'm not stressing over this, I'm doing what I can each day)
    5) Send out 2 New Year's cards
    6) Call vet for Sadie's appointment

    That's 6, so maybe I can get 3 of them done

    Have a super Saturday, friends!

    0/3

    think I did too much the day before, pooped out.

    sat
    dishes
    nap
    be quiet, DH is napping, not feeling well.

    Its snowing like crazy, wind is howling, and I am just sitting here watching it. I am just tired, so am just going to sit here and watch the world turn. Boy, talk about being lazy!! I might try to do something later, then again I'm not going to push it!

    Hey Z, am going to drink my first cup of tea with a pinch of honey today.... Thought that would put a smile on your face, will see if it messes with my sugar level.

    ilc, watch those storms heading your way.. have fun with the pups.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    No list for today, just doing my daily cleaning and making phone calls. Finished reading "Salt, Sugar, Fat". Boy do I need to change our eating habits.

    I need to do this since there are way too many days when I get NOTHING done, at least nothing very constructive, and I'm a dreadful procrastinator. Maybe I can motivate myself to do at least three things.

    Today:
    1. Mending
    2. Pack work meals for Saturday and Sunday
    3. Finish off 2014 bills, set up 2015 spreadsheets

    The first two are done. I'll do the third during downtime at work tonight.

    Pinetree, I'm pretty sure resting and not overdoing things are somewhere on those hospital discharge sheets!

    I'm pretty much all/all, depending on how you count it. I'm at 1/2 for "putting presents away," as the weather today is putrid, and there are still some out in the van that can stay there until the rain goes away... And the hide-a-bed is folded back away in the family room, which is what I really needed to do, but I need to vacuum down there. It is *SO* nice to have the living room back to normal and have my "comfy chair" back!!!

    The bad weather kept me from finding anything less sucky to do today. So I also cleaned the dining room (like, really-really cleaned... pulled all the furniture out, vacuumed up the carpet, rolled it up and swept and mopped the hardwood underneath, rotated the carpet so the high-traffic corner is far away and the nearly-new corner is out where we actually walk... then scrubbed all the little bits of grossness off the table, the paint splatters and other things that come with having two brilliantly creative children--but not the glitter, that's there to stay...) Also mailed out a couple of packages= less crap in my tiny house!

    Right now I am having a well-earned rest until dinner is ready in a few minutes, then after dinner I'll vacuum the family room and throw DD11 into the tub, even if her clothes are still on! (She's going through a gross no-bathing phase right now. Eeewww!!)

    And now it's dinner time... grr... stupid clock.... ;P

    Well, I got nothing done yesterday or today! Woke up yesterday with a migraine and then DD was sick with the flu, went to the Doc and ended up being taken to the hospital in an ambulance! Hubby had driven her, so he came and got me and we sat in the ER for a few hours while they figured out that she had an asthma attack and didn't need to be there! Still had the migraine at bedtime and woke up with it today. It's been kind of a crappy couple of days. Tomorrow will be better!

    So my list stays the same.

    Tomorrow:

    1. Blanch and dehydrate carrots. If there's room, I'll add some celery to the batch.
    2. Look through freezers and make list of what I need for my menu plan.
    3. Same as #2 but in pantry.

    Have a great day, Everyone! Stay warm and dry!

    I finished today's list. No list for tomorrow. My work day is too long to plan to do anything else.

    Looking ahead:

    Monday -
    1. Make a business call
    2. Catch up on dishes
    3. Put away groceries that are still on the dining room floor

    Tuesday -
    1. Gather up trash
    2. Cook for the week
    3. Clean up kitchen after the cook-in

    Happy Sunday, everyone!

    pinetree, there is a BIG difference between being lazy and recuperating. So you aren't being lazy at all----you are getting well!!!

    dcompton, welcome to this thread!

    Jen, how scary about your DD! Glad she's okay.

    Z and piney, y'all are doing great!

    Got everything done Saturday except the cards.

    Thanks, pinetree, about the storms. So far so good. It was storming a lot during church this morning (we go to the earliest service) but it's just cloudy right now. After today it's supposed to clear up and then later in the week it will get really cold. I plan on staying by the fireplace those days.

    For Sunday:

    1) Church DONE
    2) Work on New Year's cards to send out
    3) Continue packing away holiday stuff
    4) Bake a good dessert of some kind
    5) Enjoy my family

    Have a wonderful day, ladies.

    RABBIT, good luck on changing your eating habits, wow have I been totally shocked lately, all the junk... Try not eating any salt, They told me its in everything, I cant believe it really is in everything! Well sugar too.

    ilc, sorry, I had extra time so was watching my storm chasers and saw that wall heading for Gerogia, there were several tornados in it. Hows the puppies?

    Jen, you poor thing, I am So sorry all this stuff keeps happening to you, Hoping the rest of the year will be better. Get some rest and see if you can get rid of the headache! So glad you daughter is ok.. hugs...

    Z, I dont see anywhere it says to relax, recoup, or rest or anything... Forgot to drink my tea yesterday, so going to get a cup now... Isn't that syrup freezing?

    sunday
    chop up some mushrooms - done
    make bed - done
    find something for dinner, ??
    make angel food cake

    wow, another busy day... getting kinda old, hard to sit and watch other people do things.. yea I know, but its still really hard.. Guess I need to learn how to sit still.

    Got more snow yesterday, its all white and sparkley out there. Actually I'm watching DH shovel the driveway. Yep I am pretty bored.

    Have a fantastic Sunday.

    Early post today because I'm going to bed. Still have the migraine and I took a pain pill, so I'll be out soon. Tomorrow the list will be the same with the addition of going shopping...if I feel better. I really need to get those veggies done, so that's a priority.

    Tomorrow:

    1. Blanch and dehydrate carrots. If there's room, I'll add some celery to the batch.
    2. Look through freezers and make list of what I need for my menu plan.
    3. Same as #2 but in pantry.

    Have a great day, Everyone! Stay safe and warm.
