A Typical Day!


SO…. such are the plans of mice and of men….

My plan for today:  Get up.  Walk dogs.  Eat bacon and eggs with hubster.   Sand bathroom floor then, sweep, then wipe down with wet cloth so that next I can paint the floor of the bathroom.  Next, paint the stairs.  When dry repeat the last two jobs.  Then if time allows do more stuff around the house like clean.

This is how it went:  Got up after sleeping in until 8:30 – the day was half over already!  Walked the dogs.  Made bacon and eggs and ate breakfast with hubman.  From there it went to pot!  Hubbers said he needed his hair cut and would I please do it first thing because once I paint the stairs it would be impossible to do it later.  Cut hubs hair and while in the bathroom I decided to change out a painting and that meant I had to clean out behind the bathtub and clean out some other junk I had stored behind the tub.  After that went downstairs and into office to get the sander.  While I was there I remembered that I had a error message on my computer and thought I’d fix that real quick but of course that took an hour at least of beiing on the phone with computer experts, managing to somehow organize a party and send many emails regarding party on my Ipad.  Meanwhile hubbcan is out buying a brush for me to paint with.  I had to make a mad dash to the shed to get some sand paper for the sander and while I was there I grabbed the can of wasp spray because I saw a nest that needs to be sprayed yesterday.   I got right on the job of sanding, sweeping and wiping the bathroom floor then got the paint, the stick to stir, the brush the rags a small lamp type thing to point at the areas I was painting because it is a cloudy day and I can hardly see, of course I made sure I had on my old painting clothes.  It took me about a half hour to paiint the bathroom and an hour to paint the stairs.  I got done with the first coat by the crack-0-dawn hour of 4 pm..  So now I had to wait a bit to do the next coat.

I grabbed a healthy snack of chips and chocolate and decided I would tackle putting together an old windchime that I had sitting on my dining table for over a week.  It meant getting out my junk jewelry suitcase, fishing line, knife, etc.  I took it all out to the back deck and proceeded to get the job done.  That was fun.  Next I decided, while I had the junk jewelry suitcase out I would fix a necklace that I broke a while back.  Of course I got side tracked and found myself trying on some of the neclaces I had in the suitcase and an earring with no match that was very cute and I just wanted to see what it looked like on.  Of course I forgot all about these peices of jewelry and fixed the necklace and put away the stuff and got ready to paint the second coat.  I once again grabbed all the parafanelia and headed to the bathroom.  I had to laugh when I saw myself in the mirror all dolled up with one earring and two necklaces.  I finally got the second coat done around 8 pm.  Now I am sitting here on the couch waiting for the paint to dry so I can crawl up the stairs to bed.  My knee hurts, every joint in my body aches and my feet are freeziing.  The only thing that keeps me going is that Sammy is sitting here with me (although he is snoring) and hublette brought me some peaches and ice cream.

Maybe tomorrow will go more as planned.  What am I saying?  It would be better to have just a general outline and maybe some cliffnotes.

It’s always a good thing, if you need a smile, to go to your photos and hang for awhile!
