Resurrected! :)

I'm flipping it this time, to make it a true pyramid:

MONDAY: one semi-difficult thing
TUESDAY: two slightly less difficult things than yesterday
WEDNESDAY: three slightly easier things than yesterday
THURSDAY: four slightly easier things than yesterday
FRIDAY: five easier things than yesterday
SATURDAY: six significantly easier things than yesterday
SUNDAY: seven ridiculously easy things

Because I am home today (thank you, MLK), I am going to get ambitious and say that my one thing for today is to prune my dormant fruit trees.

Trees are trimmed!

Tomorrow, I need to:

1) Complete my travel voucher (on a new and very confusing-looking electronic form)
2) Write the evaluation for the class I just attended.

I need to press my clothes.
At work I need to complete the conference planning last minute things. And do it early in the morning.

Still have not finished yesterday's task. Funny that just by putting it down makes me so much more accountable to just do it!

I did my work item but have not pressed clothes yet. I hope to go it after the dentist appointment.

Tomorrow I plan to ...
1) weed out at least five items I don't wear from my closet
2) prepare my meals for the rest of the week
3) visit with a friend who has called on me
