Has to be tightwad "week" I just paid the car insurance :yikes: OUCH! NJ car insurance system stinks, but that's another issue :soapbox:

I'm trying to get in some kind of routine without all the Flylady emails, they drive DH nuts. I'm trying to write down what to do on each day, leaving Monday open because I work.

I also started a master to do list. I need DH to move the refrigerator so I can clean under it. There is a dog toy under there, and our dog died 2 years ago :eek:

Okay, I've got big plans for the day. I'm on spring break this week, so I plan on being busy, but relaxing. The relaxing comes in from 9-10 when I'll watch Regis and Kelly. (I love that show but NEVER get to see it.) Then, it's out to the garage to organize for the coming weekends garage sale! It's time to clean it out, ladies! It's been a long time in coming. Then, I'll do the chores:

finish all laundry
empty and refill dishwasher
to ShopRite for cereal (great sale on dd's cereal)
general straightening up
to class

I finally found an envelope the right size for the thank you card and ayla's artwork! I am SO glad that I won't have to go out and buy one :)

I did a workout this morning while ayla ate. Then we danced together for a while, I did a pinecone survey, showered, took out a couple diapers to trash. Called carl to get the inlaws address. Just waiting for him to call back so I can mail this.

I wanted to take ayla for a walk today but it's FREEZING. Instead I might just take her to a couple grocery stores and then play in the park for a while? Or...well we'll see what happens.

OH! I also need to drop off some stuff at the goodwill, but I only have like one bag, so I'm going to check around for toys I can get rid off.

Vacuuming and one load of dishes is done, along with ayla's clean clothes put away.

Still need to:
Finish dishes/Shine my sink
Mop kitchen floor
Wash 1 load of laundry
Put away our clean clothes
Grocery shop
Check ralphs ad online at 9pm
Make our bed
Clean Ayla's room
Clean my desk off
Make grocery list for next week
Make little pizza's for dinner or ?
Take trash bins out to the curb
