Good Morning All!

Up this am at 6 with DH (boy I'd like him to sleep in one morning!) But being ex-military that will never happen. Fair warning to all you young military wives they never lose that habibit.
Bed made, dressed,
Furbags fed
Dishwasher unloaded and reloaded
Washer going (swear that dirty landry reproduces at night)
Sent DH off to hang the wallcovering at a new Applebees in Riverview
Got DD up and fed
Cleared mail box
Put together 2 boxes to go to post office when I take DD to school

Gonna come home and hit the yard today
Leaves on plumeria trees (the trees produce the flowers for leis) have started to drop and yard looks a sight. We have about 100 trees in the ground plus a nursery with another 1000. So I've got leaves everywhere. But it'll be cleaned up in short order if I just get to it.
Dh is due home at 2 today so we can go pick up wall unit for grandmas room at the ACLF. Going to go a head and deliver it tonight as director says no problem. Don't want to unload and load it twice. Will call brother-in-law and see if he'll give us a hand.
Then home for supper of pork chops

What about everyone eles???

Today is a short day for me. The boys have parent teacher conferences so they get out at 10:20am, leaving me barely enough time to get dressed & run the dishwasher.
Then I have one P/T conference at 10:45 (what the heck I'm going to do for 25minutes I don't know...why go all the way back home, ya know?) and another P/T conference at 11am.
After the conferences I have to run up to the commissary for dog & cat food, maybe try to get another of the 39c/lb turkeys, if they have anymore. Then we are going to stop by dh's work for a minute. I'm going to treat the boys to McD's for lunch. Not frugal, but a nice treat for them.

I still have to:
-finish the laundry, washing, drying, folding, putting away
-clean up the living room
-wash the extra pans that don't fit in the dishwasher
-clean off the cluttered "counter" we have in the kitchen
-knit some more on ds's hat
-boil the chicken carcass from last night & set it aside for chicken soup on Saturday

So far today:

*Got up at 8:30am, fed Owen, played with him, put him down for a nap
*Took a shower/got dressed

On the list today:

*Laundry - I've been trying to do one load a day, but I haven't done any in three days - so it does multiply!
*Spend some time on - I found a $5 GC last night, and I usually do some Christmas shopping there. I want to start looking around and putting some things in my "cart"
*My exercise for the day - I need to run three bags out to the dumpster, drop some mail in the mailbox, and run to the clubhouse to put money on the laundry card (all while carrying a cute but growing baby!)
*Get to the grocery store - we need milk, and they have some of the baking ingredients I need for the holidays on sale, plus the Chef Boyardee is on sale this week and I have three more coupons that will make them free (sale ends today)
