A pretty good day

It was a pretty good day – or ‘Thursday’, as it was. Lloyd and I didn’t get out of our pajamas, and I got a bunch of stuff done in the morning. I find that I am pretty productive in the morning, and my energy wanes as the day goes on.

One of the jobs was to edit the stuff on top of the piano. It is a catch all for things and when I notice it, it drives me a little crazy. (I don’t notice it often.) Here’s the before:

Baskets, piles and the horns from Lloyd’s grandma’s cow, Lady Bird. It’s not terrible, but it is certainly a lot of stuff. I took everything down and then even pulled the piano away from the wall. It was sooooooooooooooooo dirty. There’s an air intake vent back there and it was totally clogged with dust and fuzz.

Bleh. Thank goodness I have that amazing vacuum. I put it through its paces. Afterward, Lloyd helped me decide what should go and what should stay.

We’ll see how long this lasts. After that, we cleaned the Tower of Snacks, I defrosted the basement freezer, made a sub-par turkey, and then we ate. I took a sizable nap and checked on Kate’s cat, and that was it.

I never made the pie. There’s always today!

      Glad to hear your day went well.

      The before and after of the piano are wonderful. It feels so good to clean a clutter magnet like that. For me, it’s my kitchen table. So… much… junk!

Happy Bird Day!

I am off these next two days. Travel is not possible around this holiday unless we want to start driving somewhere at 6:30 Wednesday night, so we are tucked in for the next few days. I thawed a $5 turkey that we were keeping for Sam in our freezer (sorry, Sam) and will cook that […]

Short Week

Today, Wednesday, is the last day of the week. It has been very tiring. Lots of our college staff leave for the week of Thanksgiving and the rest of us work to cover. My poor director spends most of her day working to make sure we have enough staff, and she is exhausted. Anyway, at […]

My Internet Doctor is Real

We all know it’s a bad idea to google symptoms, right? I often joke about how my primary physician is Dr. Google. Well, after my big stomach troubles that took forever to get better, then the little cold a couple of weeks ago, I had a glob of yuck in the back of my throat […]

The Tech Sale

Our weekend was entirely taken up by the annual technology sale. Lloyd, Sam and Gracen were at school until late Friday night doing set-up stuff, then Lloyd and I left by 6:15 Saturday morning to get it all started. I was a bit of a wet noodle due to a sinus infection, but helped nonetheless. […]

The Smoking Dishwasher

Ok, Mark, you’ll have to fill in the holes in this story. The dishwasher was the kind that rolled around on wheels and hooked up to the kitchen sink. I don’t know where we kept it when we weren’t using it, and I really don’t have many strong memories of it at all…..except when it […]
