And I just can't seem to get myself together this morning. It's already after 9A, and I have not had a shower yet. That's not like me.
The bed IS made (I must make the bed each and every morning before I get in the shower - part of my OCD tendencies), but I just can't seem to make the next transition. I feel like being lazy.
So, I'll be lazy for another few minutes and watch "Jack's Big Music Show" with Sissy instead.
We have a lot to do this weekend. We need a new garden hose for the back faucet (old one sprung a leak last week - I tried to duct tape it, but that didn't work so well for me). Buddy needs new tennis shoes. And, we need a new toilet seat for the main bathroom. The one on there is nice, but it has this silver coating on the back (where it attaches to the bowl). That silver stuff started flaking off a while back and it's hell to try to clean it.
Hello, Target! Here we is!
The Deep Homo (Home Depot) had a special on their website last week featuring free shipping on fireplace supplies, so I ordered two of everything we needed and voila! We're in business for actual wood burning fires this winter. Well, except we need to buy a cord of wood, which I'm sure won't be difficult to obtain.
We had both fireplaces cleaned and prepped back in March. So, this is the first year we'll actually use the fireplaces and we're looking forward to it. Our old house didn't have a fireplace.
I'm going to fire up Beauty today and make a pound cake. Between pound cake and apple crisp and other fall favorites, I'll never lose the 7 pounds I need to lose to get back down to 120.
A little exercise wouldn't kill me, ya know? But, I'd have to give up blogging time to squeeze in exercise - the rest of my day is completely booked... what with all the lazing around and napping in my hammock and such.
Seriously, just this morning, I need to get myself ready, then I have laundry and dishes to attend to, then I have several bills I need to pay - taking care of all of Sissy's needs.... lunch at some point, dinner prep and then I have to pick up Buddy from school. Sort the mail, go through his backpack and check for homework/notes home, finish up dinner. Serve dinner, clean up after dinner, load the dishwasher (probably will need to start a load after that), get Sissy in the bath and in bed. Add in visiting all my favorite blogs and commenting, plus dealing with any relevant email and my day is full.
And I love the people who say being a stay at home mom is only glorified prostitution (i.e. we earn our keep in the bedroom for our "cushy" role of "not having to work"). LOL.
