Ok ladies lets get busy!

if you are unfamiliar, here is how this works: you see this thread pop up in new posts/new replies and you go do 5 minutes worth of work in your home (feel free to set a timer) and then come back and tell us what you did. every time you see this thread pop up you go do the same, so the more you do the more i do, also the more people playing the more gets done! feel free to do a cklist - some people like to mark off what they did ;) i guess it gives them a sense of accomplishment :shifty my list never gets finished, so i like just adding what i did :O
