Focus this week (and next) will continue to be the dorm move in. 
‘Need to consult the main list to see if there is anything big missing that I might have to order. Dd and roomie have not yet talked about who’s bringing what. grrr I found her mom on the parent page and am thisclose to just talking to her myself. But no I’m letting her adult...
Yesterday I was stumped on the surge protector rules. Think the one I got her won’t be allowed. May need to ask on the parent page for a picture or better yet link to buy. Also thinking of packing small containers into bigger bins. Though not sure if these will be space wasters in dorm. Or fit in the car. I’ve got Frakta bags - at least one will be for bedding that I’ll squash into the vacuum bag.
Today I’ll make that CVS trip to complete the First Aid & laundry bins. Ooh wanted to make labels for them as well.

It’s ‘weekly home blessing’ day, and boy does this home need it! I’ll get to most of the 7 tasks & mission hopefully. 

Will also call vet to cancel boarding there. Going to go with the fancy place. It will be a schlep the morning of drop off that we don’t need, but it’s better than bringing her with us, right?

I’ll cancel DD’s eye appointment since she’s supposed to be in quarantine til we bring her to school.

Dog walk later. Been slacking on steps.

Leftover night for dinner. 
‘Watched the marathon of Undoing last night - recommend if you haven’t seen it. If only to be distracted by Nicole Kidman’s Herculean effort to emote against  tons of Botox !

Just another normal Monday....dh has off....he went to hike up Mt Washington and ski down...crazy ass....left before dawn and just got back.  Fed him breakfast, unloaded the dishwasher, cleaned the kitchen...now I'm just getting to today's tasks....

Working out in a bit, romwod, plank and some GHD.

Piano practice.

Need to figure out dinner....I really want something with pasta.....so that's probably teh route I'm taking.  Maybe a nice pesto with some chicken?  

Bills, receipts and emails.  I don't have any bills sitting here right now....so I guess it's just receipts.  Emails I have plenty....

Water the plants and my walgreens challenges

Dh asked what he could do....so I told him the mudroom is gross....so maybe that'll get a vacuum and bath.

Been working on the stacks in my office...so I'll set a timer and get a bit done there.  It's way way better than it was before xmas but still a far way from done.

Also want to get at least 1 chapter of Atomic Habits done.  They're short chapters and if I tell myself to just do one, I usually end up reading for a bit longer.

I had wanted to read a book a month. So far I’ve taken 2 out of the library and returned them unread... I’ve got a couple of weeks left!

Her mouth just doesn’t look right - sort of Heath ledger as joker vibe. Though I get why you would do that since after 40 if you’re not actually smiling you look like you’re frowning

Lol. I find it so incredibly hard to read if Dd is around. There’s just a constant hum of distraction....
