I wasn't up posting in the middle of the night! Woo hoo!

 

Clean kitchen

Laundry

Zumba - this makes it 5x this week and I am beat! (Then I get two days off.)

Tai Chi - I get to try out my new Tai Chi shoes!

Finish the course description. I actually worked on it for about a half hour yesterday but didn't cross it off because I'm not quite finished.

Work on grooming dogs. I may not survive this.

I've never participated in your threads before, but I like the idea of accountability. Sadly, it seems that accountability is the only thing that ever gets me motivated!

 

P90X Legs and Back -- finished!

Laundry -- started

Clean wood floors -- finished!

Grocery shopping

Clean two pantry shelves

Sweep and mop entry-way floor

 

 

ETA: Instead of cleaning the entry-way floor, I vacuumed and spot-cleaned the stairs.

Count me in. ds14's work called in and cancelled his shift, they have only had 4 customers all day thus far. So that means I am actually home on this cold rainy day to get things done

 

DD13 is out walking the dogs and checking on the cats

 

To Do:

clean (and actually more like sterilize) kitchen

can pickles (trial session with antique jars, not full batches until my garden starts properly growing)

can strawberry jam

clean kitchen again

clean livingroom

laundry

watch missed shows online

 

 

If there is time after all of that also:

sort books in office

clean off shelf in basement for canned storage

spend 30 minutes working on decluttering the basement

 

Well I have not yet started on the pickles and jam. I ended up doing applesauce first and that is done. Just have to wash the supper dished and clean the mess from the applesauce and then I can start the strawberry jam

Finished putting away the load of laundry on my bed.

Washed and dried two more loads of laundry (waiting to be folded)

Another load in the washer

Vacuumed and mopped the hard floors (kitchen, dining room, hall, and entry)

Picked up the entire house

Main bathroom is clean (DS11 cleaned it, DD13's friend cleaned it after...cause she has OCD and DS11 did a really poor job)

Ate breakfast and lunch

Washed two strainers worth of dishes

Cleaned the kitchen counters and stove

Emptied three boxes

Moved some books to their new home

Dusted in the living room and dining room (quick not thorough)

Picked up my bike

 

Up next...bike ride with DS6, vacuuming, more laundry, and barbecuing with friends.

Tried to take that bike ride with DS6, but my bike had a major malfunction one block away. So, back to the shop it went. Apparently, it didn't like having a new chain on old gears, so they are putting new gears on it and comping the labor. While there, we picked up DS6's bike. DD13's bike and mine will be ready later today, but I don't know if we'll be able to pick it up. While I was gone, DS11's new bike had issues. Since it has had three chain/gear related issues in the three days we've owned it, it is on its way back to the store.

 

Meanwhile, I did get the vacuuming done and dishes done. One load of laundry was folded and put away. The master bathroom was straightened up but not cleaned. I have another load of laundry that needs folding and putting away and yet another in the wash. I may not do any of these things until tomorrow though.

Took a pain pill and a nap and woke up feeling more energized. I sorted through two big boxes of books, decided which ones I'm going to use next year, made a donation pile for the library, and dropped those off, and a donation pile for the thrift store, and a pile to list on PBS. Still need to put books on the bookshelves. Did some laundry. Every one except dd13 and I are going to a dinner banquet tonight, so she and I will probably just have a salad for dinner.

Great job, Sparkle! It is 3:38 am Sunday for me now and I am in so much pain that I can't move. Which you would think would be no problem since I'm supposed to be in bed sleeping, but it is helpful to be able to move without pain even when you sleep. (Which I know that you esp. know, Sparkle). I'm sitting here eating a tiny bit of applesauce to go with my pain pill.
