Hi, andrea and cando. I just finished supper and think I'll play a little while.
1. Empty dishwasher, reload and start 2. Hang up two items from pile on top of dryer 3. Water two plants outside 4. Start a load of laundry 5. Pick up mess from cutting contac paper off of LR floor 6. Gather trash to be taken out to dumpster
First roll: 2--hang up two items from pile on top of dryer--off I go! That's done--I hung up our swimsuit cover-ups
Second roll: 1--empty dishwasher, reload and start. That's the big one and will take a few minutes. poof -->>>
Back. Dishwasher is running happily, and I've also gathered up the trash to take out to the dumpster, including picking up the mess made by cutting the contac paper. I need to close the blinds, so I'm going to go ahead and water the plants outside, too.
Plants are watered. I need to leave early tomorrow, so I went ahead and watered all the ones that needed it.
Now to go find a load of laundry to wash--that shouldn't be too hard.
Well, there were already wet clothes in the washer, so I moved some of them to the dryer. I will take out the trash instead of starting a new load.

Cando and andrea, you both did so well this weekend!
I've started working on my bedroom, so I'll list bits and pieces of work in my list. (Bits and pieces is the only way I can tackle this room of doom! ) They'll be mixed in with the other tasks.
1. Go through one Christmas box in bedroom 2. Put together chair whose pieces are in the way on bedroom floor 3. Check plants to see what needs watering 4. Straighten quilt on sofa 5. Spend five minutes on counseling homework 6. Empty dishwasher
First roll: 3--heading outside!
Back. checked and watered some of the plants. Hopefully, this evening I'll be able to repot a few that I hope will last through the fall.
Second roll: 2--put together chair whose pieces are in the way on bedroom floor. Off to the room of doom!
Chair is put together and is now in the LR/DR--kind of in between. It is an "insert tab a into slot b kind of chair, so it went quickly.
Third roll: 5--spend five minutes on counseling homework. I'll sit here and work on that while my coffee water heats.
Spent about ten minutes on homework and played with hyper dog a little bit. Drinking coffee.
Fourth roll: 1--go through one Christmas box in bedroom. That is more difficult. I love my Christmas stuff, but I have way too much.
OK, garland and some lights are going. They are easy and inexpensive to replace, and I now have room for the more important, sentimental decorations. I got three boxes of decorations down to two, plus one box of decorations for all the other holidays.
Fifth roll: 4--straighten quilt on sofa. I wish it would stay in place.
OK, that's done. All that's left is to empty the dishwasher, so I'll do that now.

Fourth roll: 4--spend five minutes working in bedroom--oh, dear!

Fifth roll: 2--put papers in new folders I bought today to replace the ones my dog was sick on--poof!
