Homemaking

shad­owkatt is home! YAY! I’m so glad to have my baby back. I swear, though—she grew more in the last week. She did have a great time.

I would have post­ed some­thing last night, but sam­bear and I are try­ing a no-PC-time (for us) exper­i­ment in the evenings this week. And he made bread last night!

So last week my doc­tor increased my med­ica­tions. The sleepy-time med had me a bit worried—I was already SO grog­gy in the morn­ing! What would hap­pen with dou­bling the dose? Would I wake up? But after a few days of adjust­ment, I’m not just wak­ing up—I’m wak­ing up much ear­li­er, as I don’t need as many hours of sleep. That’s very good—I get to see sam­bear before he goes to work, and I’m awake to enjoy it!

Fly­la­dy would be proud. I’m up and ful­ly dressed. Shoes, even. I’m in a lot of pain, though, so I doubt I’ll get as much done today as yes­ter­day. I think I over­did it and I’m pay­ing for it today. But, I
–cleaned the mas­ter bath
–changed the sheets on two beds
–cleaned the kitchen completely
–declut­tered the liv­ing room
–did six loads of laun­dry (most­ly bedding)
–cleaned the fountain
–vac­u­umed the pub­lic areas

And I got all that done before curiousmay9 came over and installed some door­knobs. Thank you! She also brought stain and cov­ered up the cat scratch­es on the bed­room and bath­room door frames. I need to dilute the stain and touch up some spots on the kitchen cab­i­nets now that I know how easy it is.

I have to go through some stor­age stuff today because things are just tossed into the space right now and noth­ing is real­ly acces­si­ble. I’d like to clean the win­dows, too—for some rea­son the love­ly weath­er makes the smudges unbear­able. And I real­ly need to find a place to store the futon. I wish we could afford to just buy a futon frame so we could use it as a couch/bed in the play­room, but that isn’t in the cards right now.

Despite the aller­gies, I kept the win­dows open all day yes­ter­day. It was so love­ly! I’m going to open them up again today, I think. The fresh air is just too good to miss. Shel­ley likes it, too—she went around to every win­dow and sniffed the air there, and end­ed up tak­ing a bit of a nap on each windowsill.

The bed is made, the dish­wash­er and laun­dry are going, and I’m feel­ing all vir­tu­ous. Time to get back to work, though!
