bundled up, walkabout, snow

Ambitious Day Planned

I slept so much better last night! Wonder if I can manage that without Wolf's assistance. I've got some ideas about bedtime reading material, that might help me out here.

I got a call out of the blue this morning. Binky called me. It's been ages and ages since I talked to him. So it was one of those catch-up-on-life calls, except that I was in the bathroom when the phone rang (brushing my hair), so I sat there not doing anything *else*. Which was kind of weird for me. Especially during the day, I have a tendency to multitask during phone calls...

So, it sounds like Binky is planning to choose the PWP over Marcon this year. I haven't gotten started on the PWP invitation, and I really need to think about that. We *are* planning to have a PWP as far as I know, but that's about as much as I know.

In the category of being a geek, canuckgirl posted a date/math question. Last I looked at that entry, there were two replies: both mine and the other included How We Arrived At Our Answer. Is it just ingrained in us from early school to Show Our Work?

Okay,sydb42 has inspired me with the sheer amount of laundry she got done yesterday: not just run through the washer/dryer, but folded and put away. So I'm off to sort out the laundry situation and get that rolling, to put a positive spin on my daily productivity level...

Oh, it's lunchtime!

I decided to wear my pedometer this morning. So far, with my paces set to 2.5 feet, I can see that the dial has moved, but it hasn't reached .1 mile yet.

Oh my, but the laundry room was awful! There were enough baskets of clean laundry sitting on the floor (and overflowing, with more than one load per basket), that the scotties have been going in there and hiding behind them when they need to potty. Sigh. At least the baskets keep the clothes out of it. I've got a mountain of laundry to sort, empty baskets (with freshly cleaned outer-bottoms) ready to receive them, and a clean laundry room floor. I've started sweeping the rest of the jacuzzi room, and so almost all of the tidy jacuzzi room bit done.

I've washed Aggie, Butterscotch and Grape, to complete the de-dust-miting of our bed. They're in the dryer, now. And perm.press is in the washer, now.

mm lunch. I haven't cooked lately, so there's aren't any leftovers in the fridge... Which I'd thought to ask for some of those dumplings. Or, maybe my waistline thanks me. ;)

Okay, that is just too cute. The frog in my "hungry" icon is catching something flying by...

Wow, for a bit there, it was raining hard enough to disrupt the satellite signal. My music went away. But the rain wasn't loud enough to penetrate past the dryer sound. So, household quiet.

Okay. Satisfied with the jacuzzi room (until mopping can happen). Working on the mountain, now.

Okay, I've got the laundry tamed: no more active tasks until the dryer buzzes.

Now for some miscellanae.

Hmm. The defaults for Home Theatre might as well stick. Figured that out after reading through the manual more carefully. After downloading a PDF of it, because Flood ate the original. Argh.

I used the original manual to carefully record the codes for the devices we're using. I'll put those in my PDA and throw out the raggedy paper.

Rainy evening

It's still raining, with occasional thunder.

The station wagon doesn't have ABS. I stopped in time anyway.

I'm awake now.

The boys decided on make-your-own dinner. I'm still caught up on laundry, and after my dinner break, I'll get back to the list. I'm feeling quite accomplished, really. The jacuzzi room looks wonderful, even though it needs mopping. But the dogs would just track in fresh mud, so I'm glad I haven't mopped, yet.

The list:

    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue

waiting for dinner to cook

I decided on frozen stuff, so I have to wait on the toaster oven, now.

I've rearranged my list a little, as today was getting out of hand...
