, , and vacuum. If I'm feeling extra perky, I might even clean my desk.

Vacuuming is especially hard because DS hates it lately. Hopefully, he'll nap through it if I go do it now. Eek!

ETA: I also need to drop off clothing donations and pick up DH's work clothes.

2 of 3 for me too, the big one is easiest to procrastinate.

If reading MDC was on the list I'd be golden.

Not getting anything else done today.. Its almost 8pm and my back is killing me. Only thing I might still do is make the dessert for the potluck that way I don't have to worry about it tomorrow (church mets at 9am and we are going to the potluck right afterwards). Thats if I can still stand, ouch my back hurts.

I am going away this weekend, so my chore list is small

-finnish passport application
-get gaurantor to sign passport application
-clean car so I do not go away in a messy car

I am also going to pack (in my case for the trip). It is amazing how many of us are packing or unpacking on one scale or another!

3. paint the chalkboard onto the playroom wall.

This is a good thread for me today because my boys are with their dad, which means that I have a few blissful uninterrupted hours to accomplish things--but my tendency is to use that time to veg out on the computer instead. So my to-do list:

1) work on caulking and painting trim in my son's room
2) go for a run
3) deal with the toy situation--get rid of some? Come up with better storage solution?

I have three hours to do all of the above! Yikes!

I didn't get my third item done yesterday, so that's top priority today (although it hasn't been done yet).

Today:

1) organize and reshelve table full of paper/craft/computer stuff. It's stack on the table next to the empty shelf/cabinet. Company's coming tomorrow. Must. Get. Done.

2) Clean out van (I got up early, at 7:00 a.m. to do this before it got too hot. I cleaned out all the toys, food & trash, and vaccummed, still have to sort through the box of stuff)

3) Vaccum the whole house (I just finished upstairs; putting off downstairs until I finish #1 above.)

Note to self: sit at the computer is NOT on the list!!!

I am reviving this thread. The weekend is officially over.

I hope everyone got most of their list done, and even if they didn't - are game for trying again (and again and again....ah, the nature of housework)

For today

-vacuum
-food shopping
-declutter toy room or mow grass. I would like to do both, but have to work in 5 hours, which sound far away - but really IS NOT.

Fold the wash.

Do the dishes.

*Change the sheets.* Done.

*Shower.* Done.

Bonus item - list new things on ebay.

It's 3pm, half the wash is folded, 1/3 of the dishes are done, and Peanut is now asleep on my lap after a monster nursing session. Since the VBS I'm helping with starts@6pm, I may not get anything else done on my list. But as a special bonus, I got to read a cool article about the history of feminism while DD was nursing!
