Burrrrrrr!

Baby, it’s frikkin freezing frigid outside. Blue skies are deceptive. It’s cold!

The vet went to town, as in hopped a bus to his own place downtown, and I’m in a cleaning mood.

Yes, the best way to clear cobwebs out of your head is to open the blinds and get busy cleaning up your space. I was working on the kitchen, decided it was time for a break.

Anyone watching “Good Behavior” on TNT?

I missed Tuesdays episode… we tried to find it “on demand” last night, the vet operating the remote to no avail, so I waited until he walked out the door today, then asked a kid, click, click… found it. Good, now we can do a Good Behavior marathon so he can get caught up. It’s a new show, first season, just started mid November. I don’t know why I like it… she’s so messed up, but trying… maybe that’s it.

Well, I’ve got ye 95% of my Christmas shopping done by ordering online. Box of mittens arrived today. I ordered stuff the kids wanted from Walmart last night; added a 30 roll pack of toilet paper, &c. Hey, why not? I don’t drive… whatever I buy has to be hauled home via public transportation.  If I can get bulky or heavy things shipped free to the house, it will change the way I shop.

Guess I should get busy again… that floor is not going to mop itself.  Thanks for reading!

ERR 100

100 things I’d rather do than clean out closets… okay, only 27…

I had a “life’s bleach-able moment” that resulted in DAYS of disinfecting everything, including myself, after the peeps on the next floor up clogged their toilet. I don’t know how many times they tried to flush whatever wouldn’t go down, but OMGosh… they flooded their bathroom. Then their sewer water leaked through the floor, traveled the concrete joint seam, and rained into my closet. The water must have hit wires along the way, as it shorted out my electric. I got dripped on while placing catch bins and pulling stuff out of that closet.

YUCK! And double triple YUCK!

Of course, THEY got their mess cleaned up a lot faster than I could get mine… by the time my power was back on, they were cranking tunes and throwing a party. At least that is what it sounded like… ERR!

It is NOT the first time they flooded their bathroom. Last time, they were drawing a bath and forgot to turn off the faucets. One time is a fluke… twice tells me to be prepared. They will do it again. Since I have absolutely no control over other people, the only thing I can do is turn that closet into bin central… only store items sealed inside plastic tubs in there so it will be easier on me when I have to disinfect AGAIN.

So, that’s what I’ve been doing… cleaning like crazy, throwing stuff out, and flipping closets. Which means cleaning out ALL closets, which I really did not want to do… but, may as well get it done.

So, where’s my list of 100 27 things I’d rather be doing?

Writing the list is ON the list… so right now, it is in my head as loose ideas just floating around. Can you deal with that? Yeah, just roll with it baby.

I’m laughing… writing this blog post has given me a much needed break. It will be alright.

Thanks for reading!

Found Clean

A bit of art tucked with old scribbles, found while cleaning out bins.
