If I understand your situation correctly, you might take a look at
Habits. If you mark them done, they will be rescheduled to the next date
you specified.  Roughly it should look like this:

* TODO Work on proposal
  :SCHEDULED:  <2013-05-01 Wed 22:00 .+2d>
  :STYLE: habit

But your are probably better off looking at the part of the manual
regarding habits.
