Today I am taking the day off work to do a major overhaul here at home. I remember when I was single, how fast cleaning used to be. Now, I need more than one day for the entire house! Perhaps it is because we now are three who makes a mess?
The toilet is installed! Or at least almost... There was a broken flange at the bottom, guess whoever installed the old one was not very careful. Unfortunately it seems most home improvement stores around here do NOT carry a flange repair kit. So unless I want to live with a half installed toilet until we can order one online, my goal is to find an obscure plumbing supply company out there in town somewhere who can save me...
I do NOT want to have people over tomorrow with a non-functioning guest toilet.
As you have all heard now, Micheal Jackson past away yesterday. I was never much of a fan, only in the earlier days, but he was a true musical treasure. Too bad his life was overtaken so much by his increasingly odd life. As it often is, at least now when he is dead people seem to appreciate all the good things he contributed.
Now I am going to make Sarah's summer camp lunch and snacks, then wake her up, lube her up in sunscreen, get her dressed, make sure she eats (she gets sucked into the TV when she is half asleep, and forgets to eat all the time).
Then the cleaning starts... At least I will hit the ground running, since I finished all the laundry and did all the dishes last night... I kind of like an all day cleaning marathon, it is a little therapeutic.
I think that is how it works for my grandmother too. She would rearrange the furniture and have long muttering conversations with herself (still do I imagine). I will not rearrange anything today, and I will not talk to myself, but maybe a little to the dogs ;-)
