bundled up, walkabout, snow

G'morning all

I'm awake. Blowing and sneezing and coughing out my pollen-extraction system, but awake. Just as I was considering making French toast, Tigger made himself oatmeal, settling that question. Critter had a cereal bar.

Flar's home. He gets to drive them to school, yay!

I've already started the machines marching through their paces this morning. Gotta coordinate the washer with Flar's shower, though...

It seemed later..

Wolf called on his way to work, and I wondered why he was going in so late. Then I realized it wasn't late. Funny how my perception of time changes when I actually start working in the morning. I also just realized I haven't eaten breakfast, so I'm taking a break...

All fixed up

The vet trimmed away clotted hair and skin flap from Dizzy's wound in her ear, and then applied cauterizing agent, using what looks like a fireplace match. Then she shaved around the wound, cauterized it again, and sent me home with antibiotics and more cauterizing sticks.

The last load of clothes is in the laundry. All I've got left in the laundry sorting baskets is work/dog towels and handwash. I'm putting Wal-Mart on my errands list for the afternoon, to get those dust-mite-proof pillow protectors, and then change the sheets when I get home. There's one load of clean laundry to sort into baskets after lunch.

I'm keeping Dizzy "isolated" from the other dogs, until her ear is healed up. When they're outside, she's inside, and vice versa. When they're both inside, she's in the crate. When it's time for Flood and Ouchie to go into the crate, Dizzy's sleeping under the stairs.

Flood may be the leading suspect for the injury, but Ouchie and Dizzy almost got into it when I got home from the vet. Sigh. Spring fever.

Frustration

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.

    Monday - Pink

Sleepy Deb

After a whirlwind of activity, culminating in a filling dinner, I'm full and sleepy and trying to wake up enough to do just a little more.

On the way to get the boys, I filled up the car. The station at our corner dropped their price by 5 cents yesterday. I also called Powers about my car. He seemed to think I'll have a good chance at getting my car back on Friday. yay! I'm crossing my fingers about the final cost.

This was the afternoon I'd scheduled for shopping. First, Tigger did a bunch of shopping. He wanted to go to Rusty Scabbard, where he bought a strangely shaped six-sided die, and some Pokemon stuff. Then to Funcoland and Zany Brainy, to look for presents for Pengie. The Zany Brainy in Lexington is closing, and the store was in great disarray. But perseverance prevailed, and we found the perfect present.

Then we went to Wal-Mart and picked up dust-mite-barrier pillow covers. Flar has decided it counts as market research, and he's keeping one of the packages for working with his client in Brazil.

I dropped off Flar's dress shirts at the cleaners, and then we shopped. I had a short list of things we'd run out of, and added to that products whose coupons were about to expire. There were a number of these that were also on sale, so that was kind of neat.

When we got home, the boys carried in all the groceries and put them away, while I worked on clearing off the kitchen table. Then I threw together a fajita dinner extremely quickly, including a side of queso. After that, I sat down and figured out calories.

For family time tonight, we played Chronology, and I won. Whee! I even had two events that took place in the same year...

Before I go to bed tonight, I have to make the bed. I think I'll leave the bowling forms to the morning, since I don't have to be out of the house in time to drive the boys.

    Monday - Pink
