Mother and Child: Day Six

We didn't leave the house today. Well, except to walk dogs.

I decided that the mess level in the house was entirely unacceptable. So I cleaned: I finished the laundry and folded it and put all of it away. There are work towels in the washer now, wa iting for the kitchen floor to be mopped. Then I swept, vacuumed, and mopped the jacuzzi room/laundry room floor. Tigger dried the floor for me, as I mopped.

The laundry room and jacuzzi room are officially clean. And tomorrow or Friday, the repair gu y should be able to fix the leaks in the jacuzzi. The uncertainty is due to my forgetting that I've arranged to pre-bowl for the Tuesday Tigers tomorrow at 9am, and told the Repair guy he could come back in the morning. I've already called and left a message asking them to call to re-schedule. Sigh.

I also vanquished the recycling and dishes waiting to be washed that were overloading the sinks in the kitchen. I'm down to one full load of clean dishes in the dishwasher, and tonight's dinner dishes i n the sink. The counters are clean, but the table is a wreck.

Then I moved into the family room. I've added a plastic bag liner to the leather ottomon, to keep the styrofoam pellets from escaping through the seams, and given it more styrofoam. And th e n swept the family of the larger pieces on the floor. After I reduce the number of TV trays next to my recliner by one, and clean up other miscellanae, the room will be ready to vacuum, before I go to bed.

Ooh, ooh, I got an R MA for the 24MB Compac t Fl as h card that we have for the camera, that got funky. Which means that for the price of postage, Lexar'll replace the card. :)

While walking the dog, I took some pictures of the Fence-In-Progress. Unfortunately, most of the pictures were out of focus (I've an open inquiry with Nikon over getting the auto-focus software fixed), so I only uploaded the ones that are actual ly clear at the larger size.

Also, everyone's heard the old standard "My dog ate my homework." But, "My dog ate her homework?"

I read one chapter of The Borrowers tonight. And let Tigger stay up to watch Gargoyles. He took turns with me at the broom, while I was pre-sweeping the family room, and handled the dustpan for me.

With Kittybane last night, Tigger checked in on his NeoPets, and t hey were apparently about to die from lack of care. So he spent some time today checking in on them again. And has decided to check on his NeoPets before playing games, anytime he has computer access.

(Update: Tried changing my encoding, but I'm still getting the added blanks - they can even affect coded links; I may have licked the added last character. I suppose I'll have to ask support about it.)

Tomorrow, out:
  • Taking Cinder to pick up the rental truck
  • Pre-bowling for the Tuesd ay Tigers
  • Post Office
  • Allergist
  • May be visiting Barbar

Tomorrow, at home:
  • vacuuming and mopping the kitchen floor
  • tackling the kitchen table
  • tackling mail & bills
  • getting the spa fixed?

Tomorrow, later: Date night with Knight. Possibly Eight Legged Freaks at the Bourbon drive-in in Paris...
