The Dishes Are Done

Sleeping in late is not my thing. I wake by 6, most mornings, even if I don’t get up then. This morning, I woke, went back to sleep, woke again and went back to sleep AGAIN. The next time I woke, it was 8:45 TT. To preserve any shred of self-respect, I got up.

The Dress was beyond wearing without being washed so I put a small load of clothes in with it. I’d have to move more quickly than I was wont to do if I were to meet my forum/Facebook friend at 11 TT. HOWEVER, last night, she’d posted on Facebook that they were battling colds. Uh-oh! That’s something I didn’t need, for sure. After much back and forth, this morning her husband stepped in with the voice of reason and said he didn’t think it was a good idea. If they come back next year (and that’s almost a given), we can make better plans. So…I didn’t leave the house today!

That’s a good thing, for sure. I’ve been dragged out to the max all day long. I’ll be so glad when I can be active again and have enough energy to span a series of “out and about” days without being exhausted.

DD called when I should have been available but I was just getting around to eating breakfast. When I got through, I called her back and we talked for almost an hour and a half. The advanced pottery class she signed up for incorporates sculpture. She’s not sure how she feels about that turn of events but, if I know her, she’ll be good at it. I’d sent her a invitation to “like” Tennessee Tiny Homes. She thought she already had but she has now, for sure.

Housing codes are what stand in her way to pursue her dream. I found this article listing five ways to get around minimum size standards. She’s probably already seen it. I think she’s seen everything at least twice.

I don’t know how many days in a row I haven’t had the a/c on but it’s several. I’ve used the heating pad from time to time to get warm and Twinkle has tried to claim it as her own. I hooked hers up and turned it on but she’s ignored it up until now. I picked her up and put her on it. She still isn’t so sure she wouldn’t rather be on my lap. I can’t type with her between me and the keyboard, though.

The dishes had been multiplying since yesterday. I knew I was going to have to do them if they got done. I had to force myself to do them. I’ll be glad when they aren’t staring me in the face tomorrow.

    If you need to sleep late, go ahead and don’t feel guilty about it. Maybe that’s what you need to finish recuperating from your ordeal.

      I was up earlier this morning but not by a whole lot. It IS nice not to have to turn on the heat or air these days.

    You can’t blame Twinkle for trying to claim the heating pad!
    Heating pads (and electric blankets!) are nice to have right now. The days between air conditioning and using a furnace or heat pump do help keep the electricity bill down. Not that Twinkle is concerned about such things!
