I was a miserable failure last week. I should make my list to read, 1. sit and look at dishes to be washed; 2. sit and look at floor to be vacuumed... I would have been a champ. Part of last week and this week is the time I have to switch my sleeping schedule around, and I'm so sleep deprived I feel drugged. So this list is going to be mostly very light weight and non-challenging.

1. Close savings account
2. Book order from Amazon
3. Update signature on FV
4. Post crochet pics on FV
5. Update signature on CV
6. Post crochet pics on CV
7. Continue working on home internet fix
8. Catch up on dishes - by Sunday night
9. Grocery shopping
10. Put away groceries
11. Print 1099s
12. Pattern repeat 3 on afghan
13. Pattern repeat 4 on afghan
14. Pattern repeat 5 on afghan
15. Pattern repeat 6 on afghan
16. Clear off trunk
17. Clear of rolling cart
18. Complete updating LA sales tax records for 2010
19. Begin LA sales tax list for 2011
20. Put away crochet books
21. Synchronize clocks

My doc was not happy with my recent labs (I have diabetes and have been very lazy and very bad - I confessed as soon as she walked in, heading her off at the pass) and I really do have to start cooking more and better, a task I truly despise after decades in the kitchen. So my lists are going to become more food oriented for a while. Bah. Humbug. The prospect makes cleaning bathrooms look like the promised land. Ah well. Such is life. Making lemonade from life's lemons - at least it was an excuse to buy new books!

Done. I might be behind though if we started on Sat. Hmm. Is it ok if I'm starting on Sundays? Today is Sunday right? My days are all messed up after this last week! Giggle.

Yes, today is Sunday. :) You can start whichever day works best for you. I decided, personally, to start on Sat, because I wanted the weekend to knock out the bulk (22 items) of my challenge. :)
