It's cold here today too (about 25 right now). I've been working a ton lately and haven't been home alot. My dogs are having some cabin fever and so I threw them outside for now. I wish it was warmer. I'd sit outside with a nice book, but o well..................

1. Go to the bank
2. Run the dishwasher
3. Iron my scrubs
4. Dust the livingroon
5. Pay some bills online
6. Pick up my friend and go to the gym
7. Go to work (later)
8. Sort the laundry
9. Return some library books

I hope everyone else has a wonderful day!

It's a warm (ha ha) 3 degrees here right now.

I'm feeling better today and getting ready to do some decluttering. I found this fun blog meme called "Tackle It Tuesday" where everyone posts the project the tackled that day, and then you can check out the links to everyone else's blogs. (See my decluttering blog for last week's entry- this week's isn't done yet!) Anyways, my project to tackle today will be our front hall closet. It's so full that our coats don't even fit in there anymore. :shame:

Otherwise, I need to:
-- pay some bills
-- do a load of laundry
-- sort through a pile of junk mail & toss most of it
-- figure out what to do with spinach ravioli, chicken, and alfredo sauce... I know there's a casserole in there somewhere waiting to be born
-- regular house stuff-- dishes, etc.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Not much on the list today.

*Go to the bank (if the mail gets here early with my check in it)
*Go to the post office (but only if I'm also going to the bank)
*Clean up a bit (I'm thinking sweep/mop/vacuum)
*Do a load of DH's work pants
*Run out to the dumpster since it's going to be 27 degrees today!

I called an old friend I hadn't talked to in about a year yesterday, and it turns out he has a doctors appointment two blocks down the street from me today, so I invited him over for coffee/drinks/whatever afterwards (would have been lunch, but he won't get here until 3pm - so maybe afternoon tea?) - he lives about an hour away.

I also have yoga class tonight at 7:15pm.

So far today I have watched 2 of the 3 lectures for this week's class, posted the 2 homework assignments, packed everyone's lunches, pulled the frozen veggies out for tonight's dinner (veggie soup) and unloaded/reloaded the dishwasher.
When work is over, I need to fold up the dry clothes and wash a load of dark clothes. The dryer died Monday morning so we are back to hanging everything. SO wants to buy a new one, but I am secretly going to drag my feet so we can save a little on the electrical.

We had a super busy day here. The kids had dentist appts in a town about 1 1/2 away. So I put dishes away this morning and headed out. Met DH for lunch up there and he went to the dentist with us. Then we went shopping at Maytag for a discount for buying more than one and a $200 rebate! Went to the paint store, Sam's, Walmart, and HEB. Headed home and then went to a sorority meeting. DH is sorting girl scout cookies to deliver. I am fighting a cold and need to get myself int he bed.
