Just trying to keep my head above water.

* basic chores - make bed, stay on top of dishes, try to get the house a teeny bit tidier than it is, 5 minutes gardening
* make a list of the meds I will need to have delivered when my Humira comes
* put broccoli soup in freezer
* put stock away
* ring library
* try to have an early night
* get the food I can't eat out of the fridge and put it in the worm farm
* devotions
* meds
* do a few five minute blocks of exercise
* do a small load of washing (necessary, unfortunately)
* I'd also like to try to make some carrot soup, because the nurse warned me that, even if I inject this week, I may be stuck on a liquid diet for a while, because it may take weeks or months for the med to start working. rolleyes

Bonus points; completely optional:
* get hair off legs
* paperwork (I didn't do it on Saturday)
* clear my desk, which is the messiest part of the house right now
* do a bit of kitchen cleaning - my usual Sunday chore
* do a bit of bathroom cleaning - my Monday chore
* phone someone / write letters or emails / send a note to a lady from church who is having a hard time.
* do five minutes ironing.
* journal
* start working on my inspirations folder
* do a bit more towards making pjs
* sow tarragon seeds

Jo, sj, looby, Joie, have a good day.

Ivy, feeling noxious skull

Where do you live, looby? Are you in Britain, or Europe? (I know you're not in Australia, anyway, no castles here :-)

Good luck with Aunty E. Would it help to talk here about the problems you're experiencing?

Hey, my day's not busy. Most of the productive stuff is in the optional section, and has been for ages (you'll notice it keeps getting longer each day :-) )

Right now, I'm feeling revolting. I want to curl up with a book and a hot water bottle, so my pact is to put ten things away while the kettle boils and shove the washing in the machine, and then I can crash with an easier conscience.

Ivy - blergh.

LOL, not quite, Mike :-)

It's spring, though, which means I can't cover them up for much longer!!

I have a sick son to care for today, already been to the doctors and got him meds, so not much will get done today.

mop floors
make soup, then muffins with yukky bananas
Ivy - I hope the Humira does'nt take too long to kick in for you.
Looby - wow I am jealous - a castle, how wonderful - our town centre is a skate park and the golden arches of McDonalds - UGH
Have a great day everyone

Jo, aha! I think I know where you live, now. I think we've even stopped at that McDonalds and park, on our way through town in a blazing summer heatwave....

I'm sorry about your little boy, Jo. That's twice he's been sick this semester, isn't it? What did the doctor say? Will he be sick long?

Pommom, good luck with your decluttering. That's always a hard thing to do - I often find that I need something pretty soon after I've got rid of it. (I know, I'm not helping, am I?)

I am feeling revolting today so haven't done much. I've phoned the library, done the small load of washing and done five minutes gardening, and things are a little bit tidier than they were this morning. That's it, really. Still, it's a start. Am here having a cup of tea and then might (*might*) start contemplating the dishes...

Good luck with the fridge and billing, sj,

Nearly 8pm. I've just about cooked the breakfast cereal (which I needed to do and forgot to pact) and am putting away the soup etc now. So... I'm half done. I'll do the other stuff tomorrow... maybe.

'night, all.

Catch you in the Wednesday thread,

Ivy, waving pom poms and doing a high kick :-)
