Last week, my goals were:

1. Monday morning - walk Emily Elizabeth, the dog next door === DONE

2. Monday afternoon - dentist = DONE, and all my teeth are fine

3. Stamping demo on Tuesday === DONE

4. Stitchery - Continue with San Man Originals Snowmen, and try to get my mind around working on some of my UFO quilting projects === DONE. Made little progress on the snowman collage. I pin-basted my little quilting class applique "study" and I also stitched an ornament from the JCS Christmas Ornament Issue for a swap I signed up for last JANUARY (which I had Almost forgotten)! Oh, and I made a set of note cards for that swap too -- so papercraafting also took time away from the snowmen..

5. House cleaner comes Wednesday === DONE

6. Walk - one mile a day... === sell I missed out on Monday; true, I walked the dog but that really wasn't walking. It was more like waiting for her to decide she didn't want to sit and sun! I finally had to pick her up and carry her home! Otherwise, I did walk a mile each other day.

7. Pay bills and update the computer records. === bills paid (including quarterly tax payments); computer work not attempted

So for this week:

1. Stamping demo on Tuesday

2. Haircut on Wednesday

3. Pick up prescriptions refills

4. Stitchery - Continue with San Man Originals Snowmen, and try to get my mind around working on some of my UFO quilting projects

5. House cleaner comes Wednesday

6. Walk - one mile a day... Got my mile in today despite the threatening weather.

7. Pay bills and update the computer records.

So last week's goals:
1. Get caught up with my housework. I let it slide while I was sick and have spent the past week focussed on the essay I had needed to write while I was sick - as a result my flat looks like a tornado or bomb or something hit it. - SORT OF, it no longer looks like a tornardo hit it, but still not completely ideal either.
2. Sort out what I'm doing in terms of my study - I need to find some way of balancing the readings for lectures/tutorials and working on the assessments that I have to do in the remainder of this semester; not to mention actually allowing me to find time for myself around work and study. - ALMOST, I'm almost up-to-date with my notes and am gradually getting back into the swing of things with the readings.
3. Figure out what my next stitchery project will be so I can start picking up the supplies that I need for it (I know that I'll have some thread colours already but not all of tbem). - NOT DONE, will be placed on this week's list.
4. Get back to tracking my spending in relation to what I'm actually budgeting. - DONE, just got to stay on track with it.
5. Start actually following my meal plans - a meal plan will only save me money if I stick to it. - NOT DONE, I seemed to have one of those weeks when everyone wanted to change my plans on me.

So this week:
*Figure out what my next stitchery project will be so I can start picking up the supplies that I need for it (I know that I'll have some thread colours already but not all of tbem).
*Stay on track with study.

Ongoing. - 2 of 3 oversize men's T shirts on the table, are redone into a fitted women's shirt. Very nice fit, now want to purchase some with long sleeves to remake.

Mon - burned 4 video CDs of recent trip to be mailed to fellow travelers.

Tues & Thurs PM - reading tutoring, as usual. Several items to be returned to various stores when I'm done. Mail the CDs.

Tues PM - birthday dinner for DGrS at local BBQ place. Please give me strength not to eat the cornbread! It is so-o-o good.

My DB & DSIL should be here for a day as they pass through on their way to FL.

Sat - drive 15 miles for DGrDs 1 hour soccer game. Since I retired, it is so hard for me to get anywhere at 9 AM - LOL.

Still need to wade through the bank receipts that have been collecting all summer in a basket. I did clear out the credit card slips. The temporary storage for these are 2 big fancy oven mits hanging in the kitchen. All receipts go directly there, and when it's stuffed, I know I need to tackle it. Also must get bill payment receipts out of basket and put in filing system. If it keeps raining and I'm stuck indoors, I may actually get to this.

Well, I gave myself permission to break with tradition of ordering dinner which includes a huge serving of meat, 2 rich sides and the corn bread. What I really wanted was the taste of their smoked brisket, so I ordered a sandwich (ate with fork so it would last longer), split an order of jalapeno poppers with our DS, enjoyed a frosty mug of root beer, then took the small bowl of apple cobbler home for late snack.

That sounds yummy, except maybe for the poppers! I would have had a hard time holding off on that cobbler, though!
