I just lost my entry.
I was lazy yesterday. I finished the carpets, put Kurt’s room back together & painted Karra’s wall repairs & rehung her costumes. I scrubbed sinks & toilets & discovered that the kids bathroom was gross!! and that the smell in the downstairs bathroom wasn’t the girls bad cleaning job, it is the toilet seat! It’s all pitted & rotten looking & stinks!! I’d sure like to know who has been peeing on the UNDERSIDE of the seat!
I picked up my garage sale items from Heather – I made $32!! I picked up some peppers from the grocery for my cooking & an Applebees Teriyaki Chicken Bowl for supper. And Joel’s not here to eat the chicken & broccoli out of my leftovers!
After that I just stopped working. I guess I’d reached the end of my rope. I did stay up until 2am watching Retro TV. I know. Buck Rogers; Battlestar Galactica; Drive Thru History; McMillen & Wife; Black Sheep Squadron – after which I said "I must go to bed. Oh, well, one more game of Scrabble"; and then I got interested in the story line on Ellery Queen – Radar was on, remember Radar from M*A*S*H?? Then I went to bed & didn’t sleep very well. I’m going to be so, so tired driving home from church tonight.
This morning, I made 4 lbs. of meatballs for the freezer & a sausage rice casserole. It’s cooling on the counter before it heads to the deep freeze. I need to bake banana bread – Joel left some bananas here – and I wanted to make apple carrot muffins for the kids. I’m feeling the lack of sleep right now. I have to wrap up my kitchen activities by 3 or 4 so that I can get cleaned up & stop at the mall to get my ring cleaned on the way to church. Oh, & I’d better look over the lesson for Mpact tonight and type up the girls’ prayer requests (and remember to take them with me and not leave them on the computer).
Today, Catnip got shut in the cupboard with the pans & metal bowls, almost got closed into the fridge, tried to climb into the dishwasher with the clean dishes & kept sticking his nose & tiny paws into the hot oven while I was turning the meatballs. Karra had better get home before her baby destroys himself!!
And that’s what’s happening on the homestead!
