Haven't done this in a while due to school.... dd1 has a snow day and dh has my car because something is wrong with the transmission/drivetrain in his truck (this is really bad timing for his truck to decide to have issues).

- laundry (including folding and putting away)- load in washer and dryer
- tidy house- getting there
- finish organizing last semester's stuff and start getting next semester's stuff organized
- wait for tow truck to get dh's truck- truck has been picked up and it's the rear differential that went out
- wait for delivery of new tv (this is paid for and will be dh and I's big gift)
- help girls clean and organize their room- trying to get them to clean it
- work on handmade Christmas gifts (with dh's truck not sure how many other gifts our girls will get from us)
- dinner- planned, egg drop soup. The girls love it and it's really easy to make (well besides it's cold and snowy out)
- run dishwasher
- anything else I manage to accomplish- finished (for now) with Christmas decorating. Might do more once dh puts up the tv mounts and I have more surface to put things on.

DD is home sick.


Keep from getting sick myself.


Work on novel. At least 2000 words.


Work four hours in the restaurant. Hopefully more, because hopefully there will be enough guests that I can't walk right out the door at three with cleanup done.


Find nativity scene and set it up.


Read the Advent stories we are behind on.
