    Looks like someone’s day has been too short…

  3. Moxie on July 20, 2008 at 3:16 pm

    I’m still working on it, Bugged. I doubt I’ll get finished with the laundry, but I think we’ll be able to knock everything else off the list. 🙂

    Trying my hand at making French Onion Soup, blogging, catching up on blogs (and unsubscribing from some), and composing nasty emails in my head.

  5. Moxie on July 20, 2008 at 6:06 pm

    Oooh, someone pissed Becky off. Let me know who and I’ll spam ’em. *wink*

    Looks like you got a lot of reading done. LOL!
    I have the list from last year of all the LA and Literature words for the 1st 9 weeks…would you like me to email it to you?

    This is our final weekend before we “blas off” for China . . . so you can probably imagine how crazy and emotional and anxious I am, LOL! The baby’s room is ready, the house is toddler-proofed, and everything to be bought already has been (my hsband now THANKS me for nagging him the preceding months because it has made for a much more peaceful weekend!) We still have stuff to do, but it’s the crap you can NOT do until just before you leave — clean the bathrooms, strip the beds, wash clothes you wear to work but also plan to pack, clean out and turn off the fridge, yadda, yadda!

    Dang, you got a lot done. I am envious of your list crossing-off prowess!

  9. stephanie on July 21, 2008 at 3:02 am

    Wow, that’s some list!

  10. PJ on July 21, 2008 at 10:34 am

    LOLOL! I LOVE that check blogs is in there so much! Sounds like my day.
    Work will surely put a damper on that in a few weeks. 🙁

  11. sara on July 21, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    Holy cow Moxie…when I looked at your list almost everything is crossed off! Now that is some serious motivation – you mean business!
