Scrubbing bubble, Cleaning

Up and At 'em

I drove Tigger to school this morning, and then deposited a check on the way home. This gave Flar a little extra sleeping time; he's now at the chiropractor.

Usually when I have to drive early, I can barely drag out of bed in time to leave, and easily crawl into bed when I get back home.

This morning, I was up early enough to shower before we left. On the way home, I was considering what a nice day it would be to walk Flood in the morning, but I don't have anything particularly interesting to listen to on the walk.

Instead, I came on home and ate breakfast. Now, often that is a drawn-out affair, but I ate, read the comics and did all the puzzles in record time. I was actually motivated to work. ooooh.

I've cleared all the laundry, dishes and recycling out of the bedroom, changed the bedding AND vacuumed. I'm sure by now that Flar will think I've become possessed. ;) Anyway, now I'll turn to laundry issues: Sorting dirty laundry, clearing off the folding platform jacuzzi top, and running laundry. Once that's all started, it'll be time to go out, as I've three errands on the way to car-line today.

Tates Creek branch of the library -- renew my library card and check out a book-on-CD for walking Flood.

CVS -- pick up two prescriptions for Flar

Post Office -- pick 50 2¢ stamps and 26 1¢ stamps (Yes, I keep second ounce/postcard stamps on hand)

Oh, no, I'm not possessed, it's avoidance: the pile of mail beside my keyboard is getting intimidating in height.

Random thoughts

Red spots don't smell. The dogs see the laser spots, they track them, but they don't chase them. Mind you, the scotties will chase snow, but not red dots.

Vacuuming floors is easier than sorting dirty laundry -- according to Tigger. So I got him to vacuum the bathroom and back hall for me, and then I corralled Critter into helping me sort dirty laundry. (I stand in the laundry room, he throws me pieces from the enormous pile. I stash them in sorting baskets. Repeat until enormous pile is gone.)

Out today, I've done two school runs, a bank deposit, gotten a new library card, picked up a Book-on-CD for walking (Ferrets at Sea, by Richard Bach), picked up one (of two :( ) prescriptions for Flar, picked up paper and ink, and dropped off/picked up clothes at the cleaners.

At home, I've moved all the laundry into sorting baskets in the laundry room, changed the bedding in our room, vacuumed the bedroom and closet and gotten Tigger to vacuum the bath and hall.

For my final housewifey goodness, I shall make hamburger stroganoff with elbow mac instead of noodles, then set off to work.
