I am moving one of my stragglers from last week into this week as my Monday project: write that report. It is work-related anyway, and I don't feel like giving up my Sunday. ;)

I'm going to copy FN today, because I spent morning-2pm researching my answer to one class's online discussion question (DQ). I don't know how most everyone in the class answers in a few sentences, when I consider the questions much more complicated (today's: explain your town's disaster mitigation plan). Oh, well, I'm learning a lot.

Monday: Answer one DQ for disaster mitigation class.
Tuesday: Prepare two dishes to divide between lunch & freezer.
Wednesday: Dust three downstairs rooms.
Thursday: Pack four boxes of items for donation.
Friday: Find five sources for paper due 2/18, start notes
Saturday: 1) Delegate six chores to DH + 5) do five chores DH forgets
Sunday: (from last week) Offer for trade seven books.

1) Go to gym

I cooked a turkey breast yesterday and used leftovers for casseroles this morning. I didn't get as creative as intended because, for me, one of the worst parts about being frugal is the dish washing, I overdid it last week, and on Saturday lost my frugal willpower.

Monday: Answer one DQ for disaster mitigation class.
Tuesday: Prepare two dishes to divide between lunch & freezer.
Wednesday: Dust three downstairs rooms.
Thursday: Pack four boxes of items for donation.
Friday: Find five sources for paper due 2/18, start notes

I didn't finish my dusting. An unexpected visitor dropped by today, and I was happily distracted. I'll finish tomorrow.

So far I have paid bills and the monthly reconciliation. Tonight I shall wash my hair.

Need to check out selling two antique dolls, so that will keep me busy online for a while.

Am also going to go through my red tote bag to see what I've stuffed in there and what I can put away.

Need to get some crafting done for Easter since everything I am doing is for Christmas!
