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!

I got most of my stuff done yesterday except I didn't quite finish one.

Today I am going to:
Finish computer stuff
Scrub kitchen floor
Put all the 'stuff' we use away (toys, books, magazines etc)

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!

Me, my Sweetie , DD 1 (Dec 07),  and DD 2 (Dec 09). Co-sleeping, delayed-vaxing, quia Lutherans!
