I’m fed up with my ability to screw around all day and not accomplish any of my actual work. Because I seem to lack the discipline to be logged on to my social mu*s and work at the same time, starting immediately I will not be logging in to Too until I’ve finished my work for the day. This has been a public service announcement.
A couple of days ago Ted, who was wearing a white t-shirt and jeans, turned on the back porch light, only it didn’t turn on, so he thumped the wall and it clicked on. He whipped around, did a thumbs-up, and a Fonzie, “Yeeeaaaah!” which made Shaun and I laugh so hard we nearly cried. *laugh* Funny, *funny* Ted. :)
Last night’s walk was bloody gorgeous. It was actively warm out and there were zillions of people out, and I saw a woman with hair like mine. I said to her, “I like your hair!” and lifted my hat off my head so she could see mine, too, and she said, “Thanks!” and then she laughed a lot. :) Her bleach job was better than mine, though; it’s a nicer, paler color.
We seem to have mice in the garage. Shaun went on a cleaning frenzy yesterday and plans to do more today, and then we’re setting Lucy loose on ’em. Why have cats and bark yourself? Erm. You know what I mean. o.o And speaking of Shaun’s cleaning frenzy, he hath raked up the entire back yard and trimmed the wildly flowering (not yet; last year) Pink Trees and it all looks quite wonderful. Then he cleaned the kitchen, including the microwave, which was really disgusting. I told him we’re going to have to keep him. He said, “Thank GOD!” *laugh*
I’m in a pretty good mood this morning. :) I think I’ve got to get Ted to start leaving the bedroom door open when he leaves at 4:30 in the morning, because the damned room is so warm during the summer that the weight of heat pins me down and I don’t get up. In other words, there was no writing this morning. I did finish last night’s edits, though, so I’ve only got 5 chapters left. Yay!
I got a lot of the stuff on my to-do list done yesterday. Not, mind you, the thing that prompted it… *goes to email that guy* There, that’s done. And I forgot to do laundry, so I need to start that, and I don’t know where the vacuum went so I can’t vacuum the upstairs. But overall it was pretty productive.
Ok, to work now.
