1. Continue to keep the computer desk clean. Need this as a goal to make it a habit!

2. Carried over from Oct.----Order credit reports for dh & myself from one of the agencies. Find the opt-out info and opt 19ds out of getting cc offers. (I've noticed those have started coming for him.

3. Start & try to finish the Christmas shopping. I've ordered digital cameras for both 12ds and 14ds. Good online deal @ Target that included the camera, a case and memory card.

4. Declutter. No specific area this month. And I don't expect to have a big number of items. But I do want to keep my eye out for things that are no longer needed, no longer fit, no longer used, etc.

I'm also terrible about calling and making those appointments. Pretty sad that I have to put it on my to-do list and I still procrastinate about it. What exactly is so painful about just doing it????? If you figure it out, let me know, lol!

1. Continue to do productive things with DD during the day. I tried to add structure (i.e. certain things at certain times), but that didn't work too well for either of us. Instead, I try to do something productive. One day we did a lot of cooking, another we went grocery shopping, we've done the library a few times, etc. That way I can say we accomplished something each day :)

2. Create (and stick to) a cleaning schedule.

3. Read two books.

4. Finish cleaning out our filing box by scanning more items into the computer.

5. Clean out the 2 drawers in DH's office.

6. Workout on the Wii for 2 hours each week.

7. Get our fall clothes to the consignment store (leftover from the last 2 months, oops). I still haven't found a consignment stote in our area for adult clothing so we're taking them to the one in Michigan when we go for drill. I'd like to find one closer.

8. Complete the application for energy assistance.

9. Get the oil changed in DH's car (1 down, 1 to go).

10. Help DD making turkey T-giving cards to mail to relatives (they loved the Halloween photo cards).

11. Make a list and budget for Christmas.

12. Finish my tax preparation classes, regardless of rather or not I choose to do taxes. I want to finish learning what I started.
