Fridays are as close to a day off as it gets for me. I don't have classes, but I do have to work tonight.

Today is going to be full of meteorology homework, laundry, and cleaning up the house (which is a WRECK, between my schedule and dh being out of commission - hurt his back).

~Oh boy am I enjoying the sunshine this morning! Don't have anything special planned today. Just all the normal cleaning, washing, playing, sorting and purging.If I get some free time later I'll finish reading Alan Alda's "Never Have Your Dog Stuffed". Maybe take a bubble bath and give myself a pedicure or facial too.~

Still sick but dragged myself to work. Kids got a ride to school as I didn't want them waiting for the bus in the rain. Work is going okay- boss wanted something done but I can't do it as the company that has our website hasn't made changes I requested back in August. He was ticked but I have the supporting emails where I asked my supervisor to lean on the company or let me interview other hosts/designers.
At home I didn't get much done yesterday- just vac'ing the carpets. Tonight I need to finish laundry (one load left) and make dinner. We didn't have tuna casserole as I was too sick to cook. SO threw hashbrowns and sausage in the oven when he came home. Tonight will probably be soup or corned beef and cabbage.

Today it's sunny and 32 degrees with a windchill of 16 degrees. This weekend they are calling for mid 30's - low 40's. It will be a heat wave for us :). I haven't done too much yet, I made the bed and still need to:
unload/load the dishwasher
feed/water the kitties
have lunch
Lots of cleaning I haven't gotten to yet this week, maybe today :)

Today so far I had to...

*clean up after my cat who got sick on the livingroom carpet :(
*got a load of laundry started
*folded blankets
*took meds
*had breakfast & coffee
*did morning reading
*took chicken legs out for dinner
*found a cute winnie-the-pooh pillow for grandbaby I want to buy :D
*done daily surveys
*helped dad with his computer accounts
*ordering freebies
*going to look for more things for grandbaby & something special for DD
*bake some muffins tonight

Well, the reality that I am going back to work on the 19th has finally hit me, so I've been shifting into anti-procrastination mode.

Today I have:

*Bought all the stuff we need for daycare for DS - diapers, wipes, spare clothes, bottles, formula, rice cereal - enough to leave at daycare (he's be there 2 days a week) and my MIL's (he'll be there 3 days a week).
*Dropped off a wedding invitation for a friend. There is a local craft shop that will frame it and put dried flowers and stuff in with it that co-ordinate with the invitation - we have given this as a wedding gift for the last 4 weddings we've been to (and had ours done for us) and it is always well-liked. Not cheap, but beautiful.
*Called and made an appointment for my car - I need an oil change (about 1200 miles overdue), I might need a new muffler or something (the car gets "loud" when I step on the gas), and I think that the brakes need to be checked.
*Called and RSVP'd for a baby shower on March 31st (DH's cousin)
*Dropped off mail at the post office
*Deposited unemployment checks for this week and last week
*Got my car washed
*Brought up all the CD's in my car so I can change them out
*Called and requested immunization records for DS for daycare

Left on the list:

*Get ready to go out (hanging out with a bunch of girls I used to work with tonight)
*Make tunafish for DH so he can have tuna sandwiches for dinner.

Good afternoon to all!
Friday is usually my "off" day. I do the bulk of my houscleaning on Monday and Tuesday. I did wash my wee one's bedding and put it back on his bed and baked a tri tip to make tri tip sandwiches with for dinner. We plan on doing a family walk this evening when dh gets home and then I'll be dashing off for coffee with a dear friend. That is about it.
