The Weekly List

Last Week's Score: 24/25 = 96% = A

Honestly, I can't take credit for the great acheivement. Most of our tasks involved moving, and since we weren't done with them when Jimmy, Hema and Eddie (the three best movers on the planet) showed up, they packed us up and moved us.

Now that our stuff is moved, it feels like we've given birth. Labor is over, and we have the joy of a newborn. Not only no sleep, a new schedule and a million things to figure out but also the joy of discovery and the flush of acheivement every time we figure out something new (like how to work the dishwasher or where the plug for the refrigerator is).

And now -
One Time List
  1. Call school district about Peaches

  2. Call for dryer orifice

Hate, hate, hate moving. I hope you don't have to do it again for a LONG time.

I'll see you this weekend, right?

You will most assuredly see me this weekend. I'm frantic to get stuff done this weekend because we have the housewarming coming up the next week and we don't have another weekend to prepare.

The only way I get things done is to keep myself under constant, core-of-the-earth pressure!

Are you JOKING? My list intimidates the hell out of ME! The only good thing is that the bottom half is just sort of "ongoing maintenance," so I'm totally not expecting to get it done this week. It's more like, "figure out the schedule for doing these tasks over the course of the year." On the other hand, all the stuff I left out that starts with "find box that contains" has to be done NOW. Yikes.
