I always did what I had to do in our house to get chores done. It was no problem, as I had special days for different things, and pretty much, my scheduled chores got done and the house and laundry were done.
Now, I have a chance to get some days in at work, so I took them. I forgot that we made a road trip today to see Jim’s mom for Mother’s Day. When I got home, I did a wash of dirty clothes and put together lunches for tomorrow .
I’m beat. Kasia isn’t even walked yet
There is something about getting things done. I enjoy the sense of accomplishment. I also enjoy relaxing a little bit after chores are done. Wait a minute, though…
..I also like getting a nice pay check. So, that translates into doing my chores when I get in from school. Kasia is usually waiting patiently for me so she can get a walk. Then that is our cue to start dinner. Anything else that I need to get done is tackled after dinner.
Here’s hoping that the bed is hit on time, household chores get done, my melatonin isn’t used and Kasia stays happy. That all sums up to one thing…
Jim has the basketball game on as I type this, and I am taking my first breather of the day. It has been a while since I had a weekday off. It is only my fault, as I figure school is almost over and it’s due to be a long summer.
What I don’t figure out is how tired I am.
They always say you can’t hit a moving target. I can see why, because I could have gotten hit a ton today, moving rather slowly. I have to admit though, I was constantly moving slow, as opposed to being off my feet. It has to be the lighter package I am carrying these days that is the answer. We came home from an early dinner tonight and I actually had some energy perking. The breeze felt good and I had a few plants that had to be repotted or put in the ground. I took care of a few chores that needed to be done and even tried to figure out my medication snafu with my prescription provider.
It’s good to feel good.**
**Except for this damn cough that is still lingering on, and now I have more things to try to treat it with.
There was enough breeze, albeit warm, to sit on our back deck and have no mosquito interruptions.
We came out after dinner and after seeing the wind moving tree leaves around, we figured we’d see what we are missing.
Kas is all sprawled out, taking in the air.Today was the first day that the two of us resumed taking our walks as we did pre-company.Ever respectful, she sees my broken foot in the boot and tries to give me slack.
Jim and I went out to dinner tonight. It was spontaneous and a really enjoyable time. There was one little twist in the matter: we went to Cape May.
Of course, no home our way looks like this. This is Cape May. It’s seldom that we venture to the city during the ” high holy season”, Navagating through the groups of tourists is not our favorite pastime. But then?
Sure we love where we are. The peace and quiet is great, off season, that is. Granted we are not as crowded as Cape May is. When we manage to sneak into Cape May, and actually don’t have too many people around, it’s truly a delightful experience.
Trying to get the house cleaned, do some wash,walk the girls , do a little baking…we are going out tonight!
I tripled the biscotti dough to make enough for everyone.They just came out of the oven now. I found a big Tupperware container to store them in, although by the time I distribute them, I might need a smaller container.
It’s a nice day here, but getting windy. I am meeting up tonight with a former co-worker and her husband for dinner. It’s going to be nice to talk after all these years.
No, thank God it is not the perfect storm, but the way the girls are shaking, you would think it is.
It started an hour and a half ago, when the storm was 18 miles west of us. Kasia started pacing, feeling it in her paws. Our power went out and we ended up going to McDonald’s’ for dinner, as you really can’t do dinner without a working stove.
We hurried back to be with Zush and Kasia-Zush who pushed me away from the computer so she could hide under my feet.Kasia is about two feet north of Zush. Totally apathetic Dad? He’s watching the Phillies and the Yankees game.
I am going to try to wrap this up and then huddle with my gals on the floors so we can calm down.
Is there a magical time when you become an adult? Moving out of your parent's house? Paying your first bill? Getting married? Having kids? Turning 30? We are still figuring it out and writing about our journey along the way!
