i need this... especially since evie seems to be feeling better

so, are you familiar with this? we see this thread in new posts/new replies and get up, set timer for 5 minutes, and do some housework. when you are done with your 5 minutes come tell us what you did! do this every time you see it pop up... unless of course you are nak or purposefully ignoring the thread ;) you can start with a list and cross off if you like... that's what some prefer :rockon just keep this thread going to keep me busy!

Except, now the living room floor needs to be done again. And the dishwasher need to be unloaded and reloaded. And the trash needs to be taken out, and the outside clothes need to be dried and hung up...
