    Just got home from work - they've re-opened I-465!! Hooray!!

    I'm going to sleep a few hours
    Take DS to swim practice, will probably let him drive at least the backroad part of the trip for practice, he got his permit two weeks ago
    Get ready to teach my Chemistry and Anatomy classes tomorrow
    Hit the gym during swim practice
    Grocery shop while I'm in town - need to take DS with me. We have this rule in our house, when you get your drivers' license, you take over the grocery shopping, so he needs a few lessons.
    Monday night Football
    Might rake a few leaves (well, we have more than a few )
    Have a great day everyone!!!

    Happy Monday! I am going to do dishes, laundry and general housework today. I might run to Walmart to develop the senior pics we took of dd yesterday too. It's a long, slow process getting enough pictures that are good to make a nice portfolio for her. But it's nice to do them myself too! Kind of a bonding time with us!

    I am hoping to stay home and NOT spend any money today. I plan on general housework and coupon clipping.

    My first official day as a full-time stay at home mom/wife/nana. The to-do list looks the same except I have a doctor's apt this morning. I have to get DSs up so they can watch DGS. Have laundry to do, sweeping and mopping, vac'ing the 1st floor, take DD3 to Target to buy things for her French Club party tomorrow. The declutter target is the kitchen today.

    Yay for you Tigo - I am glad you get to be home!

    Today I am going to GET OFF MY LAZY BUTT! I have been procrastinating so badly lately.

    ~ two loads of laundry
    ~ clean floors on main floor
    ~ cook a humongous meal with lots of yummy leftovers
    ~ fold 7 loads of laundry sitting in hampers
    ~ try to build DD9's dollhouse - still in the box from the first of October : (
    ~ pay more bills from my ever-dwindling account
    ~ wash the dog


    So I am going to play on the computer til 9:00 and then turn it off til I am DONE. I just start watching tv or reading or playing on the puter and the day is done. NOT TODAY, ladies (and gents)

    Well for today I've got to work and pick up DS#2 from tennis practice. I'm hopeing to squeeze in either jogging or some time with the weights. I'll do some quick basics at the house and then it's bowling night.

    Rain again. Very dreary. I have finished linens, pet chores and weights.I am getting ready to jump on the mule and bring up some wood for the fireplaces. Dreaded chore- it's cold out there! This afternoon I have a dental appointment. Teeth cleaned and polished.( I like the sparkly Chicklet look, LOL)I plan on shelling pecans while catching up on a few scary movies tonight. Have a good day all!

    It's a miserable Miserly Monday for me. I called off work, actually called and took a vacation day. I've had a pounding headache and sinus pressure since yesterday. I do this at least once every fall. My allergies are worse this time of the year. The worst part is it's an absolutely gorgeous day and I'm stuck inside. I'm a firm believer if you call off sick, your butt better stay inside unless you're taking it to the doctor. I don't even walk out to get the mail. I took some Dayquil and Tylenol and I keep a cold washcloth to put over my eyes every so often. My ears are even feeling stuffy. I may just make myself get up and do some housework but I'm not holding myself to it. Hope everyone enjoys their day.

    My three days of nesting are over and I am ready to face the world again!! DH is subbing today and a friend has my car, so we'll be rolling off together. I already have our lunches made and after this post, I am putting together our breakfast. Coffee is good to go.

    We are facing another 4 day week, unless the courts intervene. Lots to do with the preschoolers.

    Will run out and mail a package and check for more ornament packages coming my way.

    Have a great Monday all!!

    So far I've been getting stuff done! Got my hubby off this by 7. Cooked, he and I breakfast and packed his lunch. Then I did 4 small loads of wash and hung them out. I've fed the cats. Fed the dog and walked her(I'm dog sitting). Got the dishwasher unloaded and did rest of the dishes by hand. Started sorting coupons. I've read some scripture and checked my mail on here. Got in touch with a couple of people online Got stuff out of the freezer to make pumpkin muffins and meat for tonight's dinner. Hope I stay on this roll, I'd like to get alot more done You all enjoy the rest of your day

    I have a lot to do today, but really don't want to do any of it. I really just want to sit and watch a DVD and knit. Oh well. We will see what today holds.
