High School Blues

Nothing like misspelling words in front of a group of high school students to make you feel like a winner! Anyhoo-

The List as of 8:22pm on the Day Of

The Five Star Category....

Email Grandma and Grandpa- check! I be a good grandaughter!
Email Julia- check encore! I be a good sister too!
Knit 6 scarves- um.... so far I'm at one.
Do 2 loads of laundry and handwashables- two loads of laundry completed and one of them was delicates so this one gets a half check.
Unload dishwasher- I rule! Not only did I unload but I also loaded it. Wow.
Go to the free lung testing thingie- got called out for an afternoon so this was a no go.
Make lunch for tomorrow- done!
Go to bed by 10pm- at this point I may be in bed before nine. Check and check.

So that is... 5.5/8. Not bad!

The Four Star Category....
Vacuum- some. So this is a half check.
Clean under couch- totally dude.
Put away CDs and DVDs- um... no.
Get groceries - yes! Yes I did!
Read - I promise to do so before bed!
ETA (7:30am):Drop off applications- again with the working
ETA (8:20am): Deposit coinage at bank (seriously- 43 dollars in coin)- it's so annoying I added things that I wasn't able to complete. I need to not self-sabotage.

The ETAs only count as halfers so this is a 3.5/5.

Three Star Category...
Organize knitting- um... I think it got worse.
Organize and put away books by bed- yeah no.
Create work CDs - sadly, since this would have been fun, no.
Download photos off of camera- yes! Finally.
Complete one pattern repeat of Malcolm's sweater - Hahaha- this one was so unattainable.
ETA (7:30): Clean out purse- Yes! Woo for four dollars in change!

1.5/5.5

Two Star Category...
Bring out xmas lights - no. It's too messy in here.
Take photos of shiny new ring- Yes! I did. And then the stone fell out and down my drain! Life sucks!
Take photos of knitting- Yes.

2/3. Pretty good.

One Star Category...
Get hair did - no.

0/1

And even though I don't think this makes any sense... here is what I did...

Each section got a number according to the star (5 for 5- you get the point) and then I added the numbers to get 15 (5+4+3+2+1). Than I figured out the percentage of each sections (5.5/8 =68%) than figured out what that was related to the number (68% of 5 is 3.44) for each category than added them together to get a number out of fifteen (8.39) which percentage wise is 56%. So you know- I'm pretty happy with that! 56% of a list where I had to work for a majority of the day and argue with my landlord about fishing rings out of drains (it's still in there fyi- I'll deal with it tomorrow (I'm not using the water) ) is a pretty good percentage.

This whole number crunching list thingie could become addicting. Hm...

Maybe I'll see some of you at knitting tomorrow? Fun times!

Good job! I'd say 56% is pretty awesome.

Good luck with the landlord and the drain...
