Renata reading book, Bookworm

Modified PJ Day

I got up early, fixed omelet breakfasts, then drove to the car-wash. I drove home with a very clean, still needing to dry-out, car, a sack of kibble and new di-icing stuff.

I then curled up for a nap that lasted from 11am through 4:30pm. Then I finished my book, aptly named.

7 Lost in a Good Book, by Jasper Fforde
6 Cravings, by Laurell K. Hamilton, MaryJanice Davidson, Eileen Wilks and Rebecca York
5 Ring of Fire, edited by Eric Flint
4 Dolly and the Starry Bird, by Dorothy Dunnett
3 Dolly and the Nanny Bird, by Dorothy Dunnett
2 The Eyre Affair: A Thursday Next Novel, by Jasper Fforde
1 Incubus Dreams: An Anita Blake Novel, by Laurel K. Hamilton

Now I'm watching Star Gates from last week (and possibly from this week, depending on how long it takes for me to run down), while moving housework gradually into the jacuzzi room. I've got the bedroom all picked up, next for the bathroom. At that point, I'll have what I need to sort and start the week's laundry. I've also got a bunch of clean laundry to sort and fold. Once I get to a "waiting for the machines" bit in the laundry, I'll update quicken (an intermediate quickie), then wash dishes.

By the time I go to bed, it'll be late, making the drive to the tournament tricky, but the house will be a comfy place to bring Hippychicx home to, and I'll be able to enjoy the time here together without being faced with everything I'm facing down tonight.

Scrubbing bubble, Cleaning

Back break

My lower back hurts. Cramping is starting to set in from natural causes, but it doesn't help to stand and fold clothes. So, a computer break.

Now, I've got tons of clean clothes to fold and put away, and everything lose from my car that the cleaners sacked up, for me to sort through and decide what to keep in the car, what to keep in the house, and what to toss. Then the jacuzzi room will be clean. Ooh, and I'll feel better if I actually *wrap* the present I'm delivering tomorrow.

It's late enough that I'm going to be satisfied with washing dishes but ignoring the kitchen table.

And I guess the family room is a loss. Oh well.

Especially since Flar wants me to update Quicken every three days while he's gone. He says we'll run close on money, so I'm to monitor that. And use the equity line to compensate if necessary.
