    We are settling in on a rhythm of life here now. The kids have online classes from 8:15 am until 3 pm. I get housework done, work on projects, help with homework, try to figure out computer glitches and chat with the family about the latest news and changes happening. Dh works from home and puts in 12-14 hours of work Monday - Friday and sometimes the weekends.

    Dh finished work at 6 last night and then decided to take out the 50 yr. old carpeting on our stairs. I'm going to have to paint the wood work on each side of the stairs before we get new carpeting in. We have some paint from another project last spring that we can use. But before I get to that, I want to make the photos my priority this week. I found an archaeology series that I can watch on the computer and I have an audio book that will help me get through the monotony of the project.

    We watched Mass online this morning. It is going to be a very different Holy Week for us. We are active members in our church community and we always look forward to spending Thursday, Friday and Sunday services with them. This will be where I struggle this week.

    I did the master bedroom yesterday (Monday) I went through the closet bunt not the drawers. Should do that Wednesday. From there I will start with the appliances as I do not like cleaning them so I will do them first. I guess I will see how much I get done in the kitchen. Again, once I start I just keep going...

    I got done labeling the one box of photos,finally! Working through the lists is helping me to stay focused. I think I'll make up another list of things I've been wanting to do from way back when and then a list of things that are newer things to do.

    Katrina - how is the online training going?

    The online training has it's own challenges but is going OK. It is better than not training at all.

    I finally finished my photo trunk yesterday. (thanks for the inspiration). It took all day and I was achy last night but I am so glad it is done. It was THE major job for me for this year and I can now tick it off the list.
