For those of us who have participated since its inception, we'll now have a dozen dirty dozens!! :)

As usual, you can do it one of three ways (unless you decide to do it a fourth way):

Type I (Traditional)
12 things the first day, 10 the next, 8 the next, etc and so on, until you get to 2 the 6th day, and 1 the 7th day of the week.

Type II (Baker's Dozen)
2 a day, then 1 on the 7th day

Type III (Inverted, Geometrically Challenged Pyramid or Reverse Traditional)
1 the first day, then 2, then 4, then 6, etc and so on

And they're off and running!!!

Love your explanations!!! Mahalo for the giggles.

I'm starting mine tomorrow since today got kind of crazy. Need to work on my lists to get a better handle on things.

Mahalo for getting us going again - haven't these weeks gone by quickly!!

I'll be doing the reverse traditional again, tomorrow's job is to clean out the car.

I didn't finish my scanning and other computer jobs today, so will finish them tomorrow too.

I'm staying home from church today because DH and DD2 are sick, so I'll try to make the most of the day and get what I can done around the home.

I don't have a long to do list for the day, but I'll jot down what I plan to do or what I get done when I get it done.

Off I go to fold laundry & put it away. There are about 4 loads, so if I fold and put away everything I'll count it as 4 things done.

All the laundry is folded and put away! Yay!!!

I just finished changing DD1's bedsheets, and now I'm organizing her winter clohtes. I'm glad I'm doing it not because I just found 3 pretty, brand-new sweaters and a couple pants that I forgot she had in a drawer I don't normally look in. Perfect for the upcoming weather. Off I go to continue that project...

The entire upstairs is now completely tidy. I cracked the windows open 3 inches to allow air circulation. It's 10 degrees Celcius where I live and the sun is shining brightly. How nice!

Now to tackle the kitchen. There's the dishwasher to empty and just general tidying/cleaning.

Now the kitchen is organized. I then put away the girls' washed winter coats in the foyer closet.

DH wants me to type out a recipe that somebody gave him. That's what I'll do next.

I'm avoiding the bin. I should know better than to even bother putting tasks I don't like on my list :lol3:

I did go through about 1 foot of paper last night. Nearly all of it either went into the recycling bin or my reusable paper bin (ie. one side blank for printing on). I realized I had electronic copies of all my college papers, and print outs - some of them as much as 200 pages long :eek: The kids won't need paper for a long time

The recipe is typed and e-mailed to DH, and we just finished having Kraft Dinner of lunch.

I'm thinking of going through my foyer closet box of papers to file, shred or throw away. I'm starting to feel a bit more organized in that area, but I still have a long ways to go! The other night I shred old papers from my filing box. It's hard to know what to keep and what to get rid of. Oh well.

I was out all day yesterday, so I didn't get much done. That means that I have to do 22 things today to catch up. Yow! I'll post as I get things done!

Okay, I made myself empty the bin and put it away. I have to force myself to do the tedious stuff on my list, otherwise I will never do it. My room is such a mess of stuff waiting to be organized. The entire rest of the house is clutter free, just everything in limbo ends up in here.

I'll get some badges sewn on tonight when kids are in bed and dh is studying.
