Flar came home from a meeting while I was stripping the bed. I mentioned that I wouldn't be making it until I got home with dust-mite-barrier covers for the pillows. He had the gall to (1) say that he didn't know I wanted them and (2) suggest I wait until he get them from his clients in Brazil. I've been going around sounding like I have laryngitis from all the sinus drainage, and I'm damned if I'm going to wait one more day to get rid of one source of allergens. Grrrr. I'll be spending less on dust mite covers than I would on one month worth of Zyrtec.

Gotta make a "what we need" grocery list, and then scoot.

The list:

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple
