On several occasions last week when I got home from work I took off my clothes and neatly hung them up or put them in the hamper (as appropriate) rather than heap them up on my bed.

I cleaned up the deep-fryer that DH left out after frying fish for supper last night, instead of leaving it out on the counter for him to clean up for the rest of the week.

I put oil in my car, after seeing the oil light blink on and off for two days.

Ok, in reality, the medicine to control my hyperemesis constipates me.

I'm seriously contemplating putting my bed on it's frame. The frame has been propped up in the corner for the past week.

I swept Corgi hair out of the front hall two days in a row so ds wouldn't get covered in it when he plays there! But I haven't done it yet today.

I washed two loads of towels, but one is still in the dryer and the other is still in the washer. And, and this is HUGE, I put away my dd's diapers rather than using them from the basket.
