So what is everyone else working on this week?
How did your plan go from last week?
Did you get anough accomplished to feel successful?




  1. I was pretty sleep deprived all of last week (did an overnight relay on the weekend, & it took me about a week to catch up). I did manage to: roll over my 401K!!!, get my passport, book my trip to Tokyo (groan) & get our 2015 vacations mostly planned out. That will help with our budgeting for the year, but I also have to request vacation time two quarters in advance. Not everything I wanted, but enough.

    You have some time consuming tasks on your list! ;-)

    1. Time consuming but not undoable. ;-)
      I would hate to have to plan a vacation a year in advance. It's one thing to have it in my head but to actually have to book flights/motels/etc. that far in advance is no fun.
      I like to be a bit more spontaneous....or is that a bit more irresponsible? lol

  2. "Reconsider how to proceed with the Etsy store and eBay" done

    What did you end up deciding?

    1. I'm going to relist all the expired fabric listings and go through what I haven't measured/photographed/listed and get it up on Etsy in September.
      eBay--I'm going to research everything I have left here to decide whether to list it now or not and if it's not worth selling now, it goes.

  3. Bought my tickets for the bloomsburg fair..thats about it...are you going??


    1. Hey Judy!
      No tickets for Bloom for me.
      I don't "do" the fair.
      When are you going? Email me.

  4. I could NEVER get all of that done!! Thank goodness I don't have to! My list includes: two hikes that are planned out, a trip to the lawyer's to close my real estate deal (house in PEI), hopefully a trip to the trailer park to purchase a trailer, sorting out my papers now that I have purchased file folders and hanging files for my new desk, some cleaning and organizing (closet under the stairs for starters). That's enough for the next few days. Oh, and a BEACH DAY!! And going out to lunch with other retired teachers on Tuesday (our first day of school). Gotta throw some fun stuff in there Sluggy!!

    1. Well the blogging and genealogy stuff IS fun for me. ;-)
      We all aren't retired yet so limited fun still.

      And y'all are going back to being trailer trash, huh? lolz

  5. I started cleaning out kitchen sink. I have weeks of pots that I cannot stand long enough to do. I cannot lean on the sink or counter because of a million ants and I am terrified of ants. I had some really grody stuff that exbf washed outside with Clorox and Dawn in the water. I am doing a load of dishes in the dishwasher every day. Counters, sinks, stove...all dirty because I rarely clean it all at once like was my habit. I will continue a bit each day for as long as it takes. I SWEAR!

    1. Ok now you have sworn so we will hold you to this. ;-)

  6. I need a nap just from reading your post. We don't plan meals, but we DID manage to eat less take out this last week and looking forward to more eating at home in the upcoming weeks. I need to put up a post this week.

  7. I'm with Frances, its nap time. Let's sleep off this weekend.
    I need to get my butt in gear and start getting more done. Add drinking to the list.
