Last week

Tuesday --- a new doctor, this one a cataract specialist., 10 AM. Need to get togetther that list of medications again! Eyes will be dilated so no stitching on Tuesday! And there's a good chance I won't be driving to Girls Night Out either! === DONE

    •    - housecleaner comes === DONE
    •    - pay bills and balance books === DONE
    •    - haircut === DONE

Thursday - man (woman?) the phone banks for the local public radio station, 6 - 9 AM === DONE, up at 4: 45 and darn, was I ever tired afterwards!

Friday - phone banks again, 6 - 9 AM === DONE, and equally tired!

Stitching? Well, what with lack of sleep on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and eye dilation on Tuesday, I expect it to be somewhat limited; but this week is the stitchathon for Cross Stitch Crazy and this coming weekend is International Hermit and Stitch Weekend for April, so I will attempt to get in at least the last mitten for "Mittens & Mini-Socks" === DONE and posted earlier this week, and my BJP butterfly for April === DONE at least I outlined it. There is always TAST  === DONE and posted earlier this week, and "Midnight Garden"  === DONE , at least a few stitches in borders, is waiting in the wings. Who knows, I may even start something new! === NOT DONE! I also made some progress on finish-finishing my wall hanging for the 2012 Color Palette/Crazy Quilt Journal/Bead Journal Project challenges.

This week has already started with another day of early rising, which is why I'm late in posting this today.

Monday --- phone banks for NPR,  === DONE and exhausted again!

Tuesday --- Girls Night Out!

    •    - housecleaner comes
    •    - pay bills and balance books

Sunday - fasting for surgery on one eye on Monday (the second eye will be done a week later!)

Stitching?  I figure I will be vision impaired for at least a few days each week in the next two weeks so stitching won't be a high priority next week or the week after. It would be nice to get the decks cleared as much as possible... So. let's try to finish the BJP butterfly for April. And make more progress on that Color Palette/Crazy quilt Journal/Bead Journal Project challenge wall hanging. There is always TAST, and "Midnight Garden" is waiting in the wings.

Carol - I also remember the first Earth Day. While I do think some progress has been made, it does seem like for every two steps forward there is at least one back.
