I am such a lazy cow

Today I AM going to do stuff!

I am going to tidy the back room, ready for Christmas dinner to be eaten in there! Made a good start, but not quite finished. Story of my life really.

I am going to finish wrapping the presents (it feels like it's been a never ending job this year) Nearly done all of them, just a few Santa pressies left to wrap now. Yay me a little bit!

I am going to put all the clean washing away - it's done & folded, but not actually in wardrobes/drawers! Done - Yay me! (but I found lots more to do while tidying:-(

I am going to cook a nice casserole for dinner, cos I bought all the ingredients three days ago & they won't keep! Done - yay me!

I am going to brave the supermarket to get some staples in Done - yay me!

I am NOT going to spend all day blogging/michele-ing/playing Civ4/watching rubbish on the TV (Clash of the Titans was on yesterday!) .

I might try finishing one college assignment (it's about half done!)

I'll tick them off as they are done so you can keep track and give me a kick when necessary:-)

But first I'm going to cuddle LMD to make sure she has a good nap & stays cheerful for the rest of the day, so maybe just a little bit of blog surfing while I'm stuck here on the sofa:-) Update: LMD is ill - lots of vomit & miserableness - so she needs extra cuddles from mummy (no-one else will do poor thing).. Thats my excuse & I'm sticking to it.

    I see lots of 'going to do' on your list. How much of it will actually be carried out?

    Michele sent me over here.

    I'm going to do it all. I am. Absolutely!

    Not a doubt in my mind.

    well, maybe a little one:-)

    Ahhh yes, trying to get something done other than blogging! Especially this being Christmas! How to get everything done.
    I'm going to bed and sleep, right after I finish my comment; Tomorrow I have things I MUST take care, like you, I'm going to try and NOT sit at this computer surfing around, composing a blog, etc., etc., etc. GOOD LUCK TO YOU, MRS. A, And GOOD LUCK TO ME, TOO. (LOL)

    Yeah right - I *know* your family...I predict...maybe one - or two - completed :-)

    and cuddling LMD is a valid job :-)

    MB has put the tree back in the box.

    One less job for me, I guess.....

    Just reading your To Do list makes me tired. You're an inspiration to us all.

    That is, of course, not sufficient to get me working on my own To Do list.

    OK, I lie. It's as long as my arm, and I'm exhausted just thinking about it. A bit more tea and I'm good to go.

    Sorry, I am just catching up since I was away shopping and at a wedding yesterday.

    I cannot figure out what the time difference is, but probably you are either done with your day while I am half way through.

    I was confused the first time you were talking about doing housework because I thought you were really rich British people with a nanny, until I realized that the nanny is the grandma. LOL...

    What is Civ4?

    Is LMD feeling better, yet?

    I am watching my favorite football team, the Minnesota Vikings, play the Pittsburgh Steelers in a very important game. Does this mean anything to you over there? Probably not. While this is happening, I intend to catch up on blogs and then I have to work on my Nativity. I have gotten a few more pieces done, but want to get a lot more done today.

    Then we might shop for a little while today after the game, or not, I am not sure. We are huge football addicts, so it might be hard to get us away from the TV today even after our team is done because it is getting toward the end of the season.

    Alright, sorry to blog novel on you. Just telling you what I am up to.

    Hope you are getting your stuff done and thanks for the kind words at my site.

    You can email me with answers if you want.

    I have so much to do right now, but here I am Michele-ing!

    Have a great one :)

    well done, Mrs A - a good tally :-)

    and when does LMD *not* need her mama? [wry smile]

    I do hope Aginoth pulled his proverbial digit out and helped?

    Poor Aggie's still at death's door with his sniffles.

    But he did help clear up LMD's vomit & tidy a bit, so not a complete wasted day:-)

    OK I'm inspired. Tomorrow I AM going to do stuff too.
    Thanks for posting such a useful list. It sounds like mine ought to :)
    Hope all get better soon.
