What is left is:

6. Fill the dog's water dish
7. Get ready for work
8. Put dog outside
9. Go to work
10. Work
11. Come home from work
12. Watch Survivor and ...5th Grader (and stuff I have recorded)
13. Get checkbook caught up
14. Sweep kitchen floor
15. Send out DC Welcome Letter
16. Enter sweepstakes
17. Talk to James on the phone

Hmmm, somewhere in there supper has to take place! I might stop at Taco Bell on the way home from work.

I would just like to report, if anyone is checking up on anyone, that I did everything I meant to, and then some, including NOT buying yarn at WalMart. :)
However I did sorta walk out with some of the new Tim McGraw Spicy Jalapeno Fritos......

Today was a "walk in the park" compared to yesterday. Got up early because my bod said so. Fed and watered our inside children (kitties) then dressed and did same for all the outside children. Took a while because I HAD to love on and play with our 5 new kittens. Man, they are fun and satisfying. Can't be in a bad mood when new kittens are around.

Had planned to do a load of laundry, but there wasn't enough to justify the use of detergent, water, electricity. Oh, darn. I hate it when that happens.

Instead, did the usual Thursday cleaning of bathrooms. Man, that's a glamour job!

Took all our plastic and metals to the recycling center. Can start again for another month. Has really cut down on our trash. Not that Buck and I generate a lot of trash, but it's interesting how much so little recycling can impact our waste disposal. Until recently we didn't have recycling. When we lived in the Washington, D.C. area, recycling was mandatory. Good thing. We had a household with 5 children. Ugh!

Made a hair "ornament" (using cut-off dress pieces) to go with the prom gown I altered. Mom's supposed too pick it up later today.

Finished writing a column and started another one.

Now...I'm here on our front porch with Buck and all our outside kitties and kittens.

Dinner will be a quick fix.

It's beautiful here. Life is good.

Woke up earlier then expected!!
had beakfast, went on eliptical trainer, took shower, played with hair, finished (um...started?) homework, had lunch, went on a hike, went to shoppers to look around for awhile (bought toothpaste...don't you love how your not getting spared any detail!!?), went home, helped clean up kitchen, made my sister "lunch" (she needs to start getting up earlier!!) and finally decided to come here and hear what's up with all of you guys since it's been awhile!
