*Make a SEASON short list of everything you want to do.
* LISTEN to the audio version of your must-read books once in a while, especially if you commute to work. Compile a short list, then head to your library's website. Check to see that they're there, then check one out at a time.
* The Crockpot. START with the small cookbook it came with, there are some pretty good easy recipes in there.
