    -laundry (always)
    -sweep and mop kitchen/dining room/bathrooms
    -unload the dishwasher and wipe down counters
    -vacuum living room
    -dust living room

    Good morning,

    It's warmer here too and the snow is starting to melt.

    Today:

    *Take dd9 to school
    *Come home for a little while and do dishes and make beds
    *Take something out for dinner tonight. It's just dd9 and myself this evening since dh is out of town until tomorrow and my MIL and dd18 work late.
    *Run through the bank
    *Stop at the store and buy my sinus meds and a gallon of milk
    *Work 10:30-2:30
    *Pick dd9 up from school and come home.
    *After my shower and pj's are put on, I'll curl up in bed and catch up on my Bible study reading
    *Do some farming on facebook after she's in bed.

    I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    I need to do a couple of things
    I am trying to pay the bills but the military website is giving me issues and I cant see dh's pay.
    Later today I have to drop my car off and pick up the loaner. I have carbon build up in my engine and fuel injection so tomorrow when I pick up my car it will not be frugal.

    Good morning! It's not too bad here, either. Hopefully it will continue to warm up today, because my hilly driveway is one big sheet of ice! Yikes!

    Today is work from 9 to 3. I plan on going to Target before work to look at cameras and start planning for dd's birthday in February. It will be a huge test not to buy anything! I love Target!

    After work and picking up kids from school, I need to declutter the countertops, clean the spare bedroom, and do laundry. We are having some type of pasta tonight, probably just spaghetti. With garlic bread, of course!

    -Vanessa

    Not going to be a very busy day. Having son & his family over for dinner. Should probably go grocery shopping but, I hate shopping so I might put it off for another day.

    Other than that going to just gel today, sit back and relax and enjoy the heat wave...we are up to 40 degrees woo hoo!

    I woke up all achey and yucky feeling this morning, so I plopped down with coffee in front of the computer first thing. *le sigh* So here's what I still have ahead of me:

    1. Shower
    2. Go to the parish office and get parent newsletters, parish council minutes, 2nd grade class craft activities for Sunday copied and ready to go
    3. Drag my lazy self out to the studio and see about finishing the second painting that goes with the other one, and see about submitting them (and hopefully more!) to the Slotin Folk Art Auction. (I got a letter yesterday soliciting me for some paintings - YAY!)

    I guess those are my most pressing things today. I should sweep and mop, too, though. Dinner tonight is leftover spaghetti, so that is covered. But I need to get started on the other things.

    On this Thrifty Thursday I hit most of our thrift shops - mainly looking for a crochet hook......found NADA.

    Didn't buy much - pair of pants and a top.
