Today, did a wicked ton of stuff... listed it in GenChat, not going to repeat it... get achy just thinking about it.

Tomorrow (Wednesday)
-Check MCR Wednesday deal
-Go to gym (barf)
-Clean downstairs bathroom

I'm guessing I'll be achy tomorrow, and the gym is sort of required (military) so I have to take it easy on the other two. That's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it.

Happy Birthday Pinetree!!!! :)

Hmm.. today has been just icky-- the weather and the co-worker...

So,
went to the gym, that's one
cancelled plans for tomorrow, that's two
and for three, I think I'm cancelling the chicken-helper we were going to have for dinner and ordering extra-cheese pizza (it's frugal, Domino's is half-off right now!)
oh, and I frugally used a $.50 redbox code to reserve a movie for the kids to watch on the way home... so my bad mood doesn't have to ruin their evening.

That's more than enough for a day like today! :)

So, since it's the weekend and the kids are home, and additionally since it's just me with them (Hubs is on a 24) my #1 thing I have to do today is:
1-Monitor DD9
2-Keep her as balanced as possible
3- Keep her (and the rest of us by extension) safe.

If we make it through the day without incident, the day is a success...

Now, while doing that, I'd like to:
- get the kitchen clean
- straighten the living room
- get the kids to clean their rooms
- clean up the TV room
- do some cooking/baking
- reorganize the freezers
- go to the stores (grocery and craft, maybe GW)
- work on DD6's chairs


AND the doctors would slap me if they read that list. BUT anything on that list that gets done is "bonus." My three things are "keep us safe, keep us safe, keep us safe."

I'm putting these in writing because we REALLY need to get on with selling our two spare RV's and tent camping gear. So today, we need to:

~open the Palomino and check for mouse damage or anything else that might have happened over winter and research current KBB value.
~get cover off motor home.
~discuss list of tent gear and set final prices.

Once that's done, I need to write up ads and e mail those so they're in the papers next week. The pop up ad is already written since it was on CL last fall, just have to change the price on that. The ad is mostly written for the tenting gear too, just have to double-check model numbers on some things and make sure the prices I already came up with are what we want to ask for those items.
