I am frightened by the number in the thread title. There are only 52 weeks in a year, how can we be at 49 already?! I hope this doesn't mean that it's almost Christmas, because I am not even close to being ready.


Tonight we are going to a party, so I'm just going to tidy and try to find something to wear, do something with my hair, etc.

Tomorrow my stupid report is due, the one I worked on all last week and still haven't finished.

I will come back on Monday with a real list.

Getting there and it's not even noon yet! Probably won't make it tanning today since I was going to do it while DS was at baseball...we got all the way to practice and he is missing his glove...we think it was stolen out of our car, so we drove right home :(. I did start a little knitting on my dishcloths but will check that off tonight when I get more done. How is everyone else doing in their pyramid this week?

You bet and welcome back Kaebuzz!!

The original version worked like this:
The first day - list 12 small, manageable things that you want to accomplish. Each day after, decrease your list by 2 - so you'll be crerating a pyramid list with 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2 things to do.

Over the year or so, the original list has been modified to fit individual needs. I set mine up so I can build on it as the week goes and I'll have an overview of my week - works for me.

Hope it works for you!!

Well I never did get back around to updating my list last night, but I did get most of my dinner dishes done...a few had to soak overnight and I fit some reading in...so did pretty good on my list yesterday. For today

Monday:

1. Work 9-5
2. Dishes
3. Vacuum
4. Knit/sew
5. Wipe fingerprints of any and all walls
6. Wrap some xmas presents
7. Read
8. Clean off computer desk

We'll see how far I get...I started clearing some of the papers yesterday off my computer desk...but needs much more organization today. Usually monday's I get out of work before 5 since it's always slow...I am hoping that's the case today so that I can actually try and get my whole list done, plus anything neglected from the past few days! Have a great day everyone!
