Okay, MM, I checked and I didn't see one from you! ;)

Two more weeks to go!! This week, for me, will be all about getting ready for having family over for Christmas. Next week will be getting ready to start 2012 as organized and clutter-free as possible.

Good luck to all!

Didn't do a detail priority list but basically decided what to do before Christmas and what to do after. Skipped the freezer inventories today because I decided to do a massive OAMC session after Christmas.

Ok, I'm off work for a couple of weeks, so I'm in again, more or less, for the last two weeks. I don't plan anything strenuous - mostly playing - but there are some things I need to accomplish. So no counting of tasks, just ordinary old to do lists.

Monday:
Catch up on weekend dishes
But drinks in refrigerator
Thaw chicken and hamburger
Cook chicken, make spaghetti sauce
Put away unused yarn
Pull yarn for new project
Declutter living room
Declutter bedroom
Declutter dining room
Put away last bits of laundry
Make grocery list for Tuesday
Make errands list for Tuesday
Replace blanket with quilt
Remove refrigerator drawer
Measure for baskets
Put tape measure in purse for Tuesday errands
Complete aruba sea wave lapghan

My apartment refrigerator has one full width drawer in the bottom. It is against the wall, so the door won't swing back much, and it is do difficult to open the drawer I almost never use it. After two years here (!) it occurred to me that I could just take it out and use a couple of smaller baskets. Why did it take so long to figure this out?
