Welcome Mom21, glad you're in!

KimB, the forum won't let me give you a WTG, but I would if I could...

So for tomorrow:
-Pay bills and reconcile myself to how much I spent this long weekend ("date" with hubs, new lawnmower and edger, tank of gas for an otherwise frugal-ish day trip, and school clothes and supplies for my nieces and nephew-- as well as some things for my kids, too, can't lie...) Ugg. :/
- Go to the gym and try to undo the yummy things I ate...
- Put away laundry
- Dishes

All in all, I really DID get a lot done the past 4 days, and we can afford it, but still... just a lot in a very short time...

Hi OM! and yep I am pooped, but must keep going, have an appraisal coming up and need to get this place in excellent shape to refinance.

I'll get there, well maybe, this heat is just killing us, just wish it would cool down at least to the 80's. I didn't get to spring clean, and this place really needs a good scrubbing. I have to hurry, holiday work will be here before I can turn around, and I won't have time for much cleaning again.

Good to hear you're cleaning your car, got her running huh!?

Now for Tues, change in plans
ran the dishwasher
emptied the darn thing
cut up a roast for stew, and stir fry meat
froze 2 pork shoulders
tied up tomatoes that fell over
washed labeled and put away tomato jars, another14 jars!
peaches thawed, going to try and throw in the peach cobbler, and will eat a huge peice for Ilovechocolate, yum...
I'm done, going to make coffee and go sit on the deck, in the shade and smell the flowers!

Wed, will do it tomorrow...

Well, I did get the bills paid yesterday. Man I'm poor now. :) And that's not including the charges that haven't posted yet! (But in my defense, much of it was for school supplies for Sis' kids, $400 was for unplanned lawn machine expenses, Hubs overspent $150" in "work related stuff".. so if you take out everyone ELSE's spending... (yeah, I'm not buying it either...)

Oh well, this should help me NOT spend much this pay period, knowing I have $700+ in pending charges hanging over me already. ;D

I didn't make it to the gym-- too busy running around... but I DID go to a Dr appt and pick up a prescription... that was 2 hours... luckily I had a book with me.
Also did my coke points...

And this morning I did the dishes... I was HOPING that since Hubs is off last week, he'd do them without me having to ask... but nope. And we spent a looonnnggg time on homework, trying to get good habits set up for the year.

I should have gone to the store, but the one I stopped by was closed when I got there, and didn't have the energy to try another... in fact, I didn't even make dinner, just let the kids "graze." (Which they were perfectly happy with.)

And, obviously, nobody sorted any laundry :)

Today:

-Check MCR Wednesday deal-done
-De-trash the car- done
- 2 Dr appts back-to-back (didn't I swear I'd never do that again???)
- still need to go to the store (since I've planned salad for dinner and we HAVE NO salad...) :)

109 calendar days/72-ish work days left!!! Why does that seem so long???

What's today? It's hump day< one of my favorites! And yes I love the camel on the commerical!

Wed
work, need to get caught up
water plants
wipe down shower doors
shake out throw rugs

Ilovechocolate, I tried a new cobbler, it has a scone topping on it, was really disappointed, to me it tasted like bisquick topping, but the peaches came off the tree out front, it has smaller peaches, but they are the best tasting peaches you have ever eaten,, so.... The cobber was very, very good, even with no ice cream melted in. yum!

Well, got all my list done today-- that makes three therapy appts (my regular appt, a medicine refill appt, and then DD9's appt) all in 24 hours. Brutal!!! I literally feel dizzy after all that.

Got the trash out of the car and went to the grocery--twice because I forgot cat food the first time.

Tomorrow, Thursday:

I have NO idea. My head is too fuzzy from all the shrinking!!!

Actually, I may be on strike tomorrow. Hubs has been off work since 6AM Monday and will be off work until Tuesday and hasn't so much as washed a dish in that time... in fact he sat on his computer this morning while *I* washed the dishes before work.

Thursday:
DON'T cook the frozen pizza for dinner, Hubs can handle that
DON'T wash any laundry, he can handle starting a machine
DON'T cook breakfast (there's cereal in the pantry, oatmeal in the fridge, and pancakes and muffins in the freezer) or pack lunches (there's HM baked beans w/ hot dogs thawing on the counter) or in any way get the girls up or dressed before going off to work for the day (school is closed tomorrow, so that's not as heartless as it sounds...they'll sleep in , dress in whatever, eat whatever)

Yep, that to-DON'T list sounds great!!! ;D

I didn't get the porch cleaned but I did get paperwork and laundry done.

pinetree, I've made only two peach cobblers this summer. I think I should do another one this weekend when both kids are home.

For Thursday:

1. Put away laundry
2. Work on cleaning and pricing yard sale items
3. Help DH in his project in organizing the basement
