bundled up, walkabout, snow

Almost Caught Up this fine Monday morning

  • Mail
    I opened mail last night while I was starting up my laptop to send a paypal payment to Sydb for my SU order.
  • Dishes
    Done. It took me 30 minutes to wipe down the kitchen counters and do all the hand-wash we generated over the weekend. I also filled the dishwasher to empty the sink; I figure since Critter will have more than the usual hand-wash to put away, I don't mind loading some of his work. ;)
  • Paper
    I finished the Saturday paper, and read Sunday and Monday, before getting started on the dishes.

Then I took a small break to read Sydb's and Wolf's journals - I'll read more LJ as a reward for more work later. ;) I also downloaded email and cleared out spam.

The "real" excuse for turning on my laptop was to start working on Chess Club paperwork. There's a tournament on Saturday, for which I owe an email roster today. Once I get that done, I'll turn back to catching up, and then work on the project of the day: the jacuzzi room.

  • Laundry
    I have a basket of my clothes that I haven't folded yet; I'm otherwise caught up.
  • Coupons
    I'm bringing them to clip and sort in carline (and breaktime at work tonight).
  • Tables
    When I leave for carline, and take the coupons, my side of the kitchen table will be clear. The boys and Flar, on the other hand, have work to do. ;)
  • Quicken
    Got that caught up last night while I was starting up the laptop.


I also got the jacuzzi room vacuumed today, and changed the bedding for the dogs. I'm trying out a bathmat in the crate, instead of blanket, to see how that works out.

And now it's time to dress, and scoot for carline.
  • Current Mood
    Productive
