I haven't posted since Sunday because things got a little crazy around here. I have been fighting some kind of sinus thing all week and it has worn me out. Youngest dd got a new job and I went with her to get some 'office appropriate' clothes on Tuesday. I have been trying to maintain and make progress on the piles of laundry in the laundry/utility room. Yesterday I was at Wal-Mart and today I was at Super Target looking for a few last minute things for both dds. Dh and youngest dd have both been fighting bugs and dd ended up having to go to the doctor again this week so I went to the pharmacy to get a couple of prescriptions and some OTC medications. I think I may be starting to feel better so I am hoping to get back to my 'to-do's' tomorrow or at least by Monday. I read the lists you folks write and it does help give me inspiration!

ephofma, sorry you are under the weather. Right now, your to-do list is:

1) Rest
2) Take good care of yourself
3) Feel better

Thank you Madhen for your kind words and 'directions'. It is really appreciated!

Today's list is complete and fairly unimpressive - although, I keep telling myself it is better than nothing.
1. lunch with dh
2. go by Ace Hardware to get free quart of paint
3. fold and put away clothes in dryer
4. move clothes from washer to dryer

Ace Hardware turned out to be interesting - youngest dd was with me so they said she could get a free quart as well. I am pretty much done for the day as I am really, really tired.

Work car is done, but I brought some of the stuff in it and dumped it on the couch, so I'm back to the starting line there!

Sunday we rested so nothing done there. Yesterday (Monday) I spent most of the day in the emergency triage with my 9 months pregnant daughter and her husband. Everything turned out to be just fine thank goodness but it was a bit of a scare. After that I treated for a very late lunch or very early dinner however you want to call it.

So for today so far:
1. Check financials
2. Grocery store that seemed to take forever
3. Put clothes from washer in dryer
4. Washed and hung to dry hand wash only clothes
5. Washing a load of blue/green 'play' clothes
6. Got refridg back in order

Hopefully, to be continued.......
