Getting back into form

I'm not as sick as I was, but I'm not well. Which means, pausing often while doing housework. The challenge is to get back up. I did finish what I started in the family room Sunday night. Tonight. The family room is ready for Critter to vacuum tomorrow.

I sorted all the laundry from the boys' laundry chute, from our laundry chute, and from our bedroom floor. I probably found most of it. Then I got a priority request from Flar for khakis, so that went into the washer first. The second load included his red fleece. I'm not working tonight, so I should be awake tomorrow with no errands, so I can continue working on cleaning up the house and doing laundry. Tomorrow, I'll try to mix in more paperwork during the sitting down breaks. :)

Yesterday I spent the day out of the house. I woke in time for small breakfast and then a quick trip to Sam's, before I met spydielives. She is starting a sewing business and is going to make a custom-fitted corset for me. We had lunch at Qdoba, then sat down and talked over the details. After that, we picked out material and notions. It's going to be gorgeous, and she's making it sturdy enough for me to wear most of the time. This is going to help me with portion control / appetite control on my diet. And be gorgeous, to boot.

After I picked up Tigger, I finished out the shopping at Kroger, and then even made dinner when I got home. We hadn't had sweet and sour Ham Balls in ages. Yum! I clocked in by 7:30pm, and worked over 8 hours last night.

Ooh, that looks exhausting. I think I'm done for the night. ;)
