This week's list will be simplified with Thanksgiving approaching on Thursday. The older ones will be coming home starting on Tuesday evening. Two years ago, I worried how I was to pick up/drop off 3 college students for breaks, etc. when the colleges have similar schedules. This is the second year of it, and the schedules have always worked out in our favor.

  • Picture Board
  • Work off birthday to-do list
  • Stretches/Cardio
  • Clean Bathrooms.
  • Pay bills
  • Correspondence: Family History group;
  • Appts: Monday: Late Pick Up; Friday: Early Dr. Appt.
  • FlyLady: Master Bedroom
    • Dust.
    • Vacuum.
    • Clean Windows.
    • Declutter room.
    • Shred papers.
  • Menu Planning
  • Do weekly reflection.
  • Staple reflection papers to the planner pages.
  • HHP
  • Essential Service Personnel Gifts
  • Prepare Apple Pies
