1st of March

Turns out that I did/do have bronchitis. So no class this week for either dog and also didn't go to Rosemarie's. They won't have class this coming week as I will be up in Canada for Dad's surgery.

Today was the first day in a few days that I actually had energy to do something. Not too much, but a little. Did go grocery shopping and vacuumed out my car. I even got a bucket of soapy water and washed the floor in it ... love that Honda Element! :-)

Also cleaned out the two shoe closets and threw away any shoes that were cracked, broken or generally just not going to be worn any more. And threw out two more boxes of old, old files from the basement. Don't think anyone needs home & school files from 1994 any more!

I want to gradually get rid of the JUNK that this house is drowning in!! But it is hard right now. We are going to get new carpetting upstairs, so right now, I don't have a bedroom and all of our furniture is everywhere else. Evan can't even sleep in his room (he's home on break) as there is so much stuff in there.

And it isn't going end once the carpet is installed this week. The kitchen ceiling will have to be taken down where the shower stall is to get at the ever lasting leak from there ... so mess city, here we come!

I'd like to get rid of most of the junk in the "ski room". I can then use that room to pile up boxes of things that won't get thrown away. I remember when we looked at this house before we bought it that the previous owners had that room stacked to the ceiling with boxes.

Okay, laundry beckons again. Dishes need to be done. And I have to finish cutting up chicken for the dogs' meals while I am gone. At least the garbage is outside already ... hopefully we won't get the 8" to 12" of snow that they are predicting .. I need that garbage and recycling picked up!
