Here we are on Saturday, day 1 of my weekend plans. I vowed to get up by 10:00 a.m. Wait — bet you want to know did that happen? Yes and No. Yes, in that I got a text from daughter asking about motion sickness medicine. She was on a road trip with friends and apparently someone got car sick. I am an expert in that field so she asked me. Unfortunately I was half asleep and couldn’t answer her at that moment. But when I noticed it was 10:00 I leapt (not quite) out of bed, grabbed the iPad (luv it) and looked it up. AHA – Dramamine, Bonine, Sea-Bands, ginger snap cookies. I texted info to daughter and realized I was now up! Yay — I was up! Now for the No part. I crawled back in bed and read. Since that comes under the RELAX goal, I counted that as OK. See, I can rationalize any behavior.
I did get the flowers planted outside. Here are the before and after pictures. The plants have not grown or bloomed heavily yet, so they aren’t all that impressive.
I also drug out the outdoor furniture, though did not really position it anywhere. It needs to be hosed off and I have not yet hooked up the hose. And I did a bit more laundry but have not put it away, so it only counts as half done.
So the finally tally is 2.5 tasks done. The RELAX task was done for today too — but I also reserve the right to redo that task every day!!!!
Now on to other news. I received a text picture today from a friend, Susan, who was snow skiing at Silver Mountain, Idaho. The have so much snow, and received some new snow, so they opened for the weekend. OMG – skiing on Memorial Day weekend: way to go weather!
Am saddened to hear that Will Norton was found dead today in Joplin. He had just graduated from high school right before the tornado hit and was either ejected or sucked out of his car. My heart goes out to his family.
Oh — and a little tidbit that makes me feel great: I now weight less than when I moved into this house in 1999. I was sort of celebrating when I got off the scale and felt something under my foot. Looked down and there were several cotton swaps on the floor. Threw them away and didn’t think too much about it. A bit later I heard a racket in the bathroom so went to investigate. AHA, Sunni had gotten into the cabinet, grabbed the cotton swab box and was playing with several swabs. I now will keep the bathroom door closed.
