- Pack for powwow
- Clean Kitchen
- 2 Loads of Laundry (done the "unfrugal" way)
- Vacuum rugs in the dining room, library, media room
- Mail coups to coupon buddies
- Start log to track ALL spending (scary but necessary)

The main thing I've got to do is pack for a few days down in NC. My grand-daughter is getting baptized this weekend. It's such a blessing to see my kids bring her up to know the Lord! Glad we can go! I also want to load and reload the dishwasher. I have to get the cats food all set up outside for when we are gone. I have my last zumba class tonight(I get to go with my daughter). I'm cooking fried chicken for dinner so that we can have the leftover chicken on the road tommorow. I have to straighten up so that I don't come back to a untidy house. I have to get my hubby's lunch packed and him off to work later. Whatever else I can fit in.HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!

Good morning! I called in sick this morning. I have a miagraine that has progressively gotten worse over the past 2 days. I made an appointment for DS#2 and I to go to the chiropractor. It usually helps relieve them somewhat.

While home, if I can function, I plan to work on some school work and do some minor house cleaning.

Tonight DS#3 has a football game and I plan to be there....with a migraine and all. I will pay for it later.

I have to go to an appt. at 3:00, but then I'm coming home and hitting the clutter in the LR, and washing dishes. I also need to get clothes folded, but I'll probably do that when I'm watching t.v. tonite. I also need to go to the library and get some more videos. I'm running out! Watched a really strange one this morning, called "The Lost Room"...a scifi channel original.

Wow ladies! I'm SO proud of y'all for posting! I hope it motivated you and helped to get your chores completed. I know mine did - I snuck on after work and saw this thread and got to my chores but to see everyone else's?? :)

By getting most of my chores done tonight I have the weekend free to socialize and then come home to purge more junk LOL
