Well, it's the weekend.
I had to get away from this family project because between the monster head cold that nature gave me for my 53rd birthday has lasted for twelve days, and as a result, the house had gotten away from me and my house keeping machinations.
And frankly my head is spinning from Strouse's.
So I put away the bed linens from our guests at Thanksgiving and worked at cleaning up the guest bedding on the third floor.
Taking a quick break, I signed onto Amazon Vine and scored a brand new foam and gel mattress for the guest room for FREE. Read it and weep. FREE.
Then I did 12 days worth of laundry (Six loads), stripped the beds, flipped our bed and cleaned the bathroom floors.
I folded the laundry and hauled it up to the second and third floors and put it away.
I went to the store, bought fresh bed and a wood chisel, because tomorrow we need to chise some wood to repair a door.
I also washed out the humidifier pans that live under the lid of our radiator covers. These are galvanized shallow pans that your pour water into and radiators heats the water, which releases the water vapor so everything in your home becomes less shocking.
And can you believe after all of that, while I was getting my hair cut, the woman cutting my hair had the nerve to say "Good, now that you are done you can come to my house and clean."
I am sitting there thinking "Bitch, after all of that, and its 12:30, why in the name of Sweet Lord Jesus, would I want to do that?" But because she had very sharp pointy scissors, I thought it was better just to smile.
Then I came home and patched the concrete walk to the front door. ALL of this because when the husband comes home, I want him to have a nice place to land.
And yes, I have turned into my mother.
