bundled up, walkabout, snow

Laundry Day

I've been slower than usual starting this morning. I blame the cold.

I've got the third load in the washer, but I'm waiting for the electric water heater to recover before washing dishes. I just shut down the water we were running to protect the pipes. The dogs haven't demanded to come back in, though the 10 minute timer went off. So it's warming out there, relatively.

I'm caught up on LJ. Going to sort through papers on the table, update quicken and check email. By then, the water heater should be up to the small load I have to wash.

My thrilling life

Continues apace.

I got to chat with Belmikey for a bit. :)

I'm about to get up and put the fifth load in the washer. I've updated Quicken and sent a finances-related email to my mom. After I sort and fold the load coming out of the dryer, I'll fix lunch and then wash dishes.

That will get me caught up for the day (with the exception of continuing the laundry). I feel a bit pressed about my other goals for today: cleaning the jacuzzi room and chess club stuff. I need to spread the contents of my chess club folder all over the kitchen table and then reorg/regroup. I want to wait until I've put the last load of wash in (dog bedding) before cleaning the jacuzzi room floor.

Hmm.. Maybe the mopping and vacuuming will have to wait for tomorrow after lunch, and allow for the kitchen floor, as well.

Productive morning

I'm about to put the sixth load of laundry in the washer. I'm otherwise All Caught Up until the mail arrives today.

I've done some DB updating for Chess Club, printed out info sheets for the next two tournaments, and a calling list, to start calling for the next tournament tonight. I know what I want to get done before chess club on Friday.

I didn't get the jacuzzi room cleaned, but I'll have plenty of time for that and the kitchen on Friday.

And, bonus, I never cashed the checks I got for the Christmas present, so I've got a little bit of "found" spending money this week. (There were only three checks; everyone else gave me cash.)
