The Jersey guy can be Captain Jersey I think, because almost all of his photos are of him on boats and his current favorite pastime is sailing. We're about to reach
But, speaking of skepticism, Doc Hawaii has not followed through with a photo. Cest le vie. Our 2nd phone conversation contained many of the same elements from the 1st, as I said.
Yesterday's cleaning accomplishments:
Ceilings (yes, I'm serious)
My family would be proud. Although, I didn't get to the windows. Maybe next weekend.
However, the attempt to assemble 3-drawer unit failed. Reason: ALL hardware was missing from the box. Note to self: Don't buy something like that again without checking inside the box first. Email sent to California Closet to see if I can purchase the hardware for that model separately. Special shoutout to my dear friend Lisa because she was with me when I made this poor shopper mistake many years ago.
I fully intended to sort out the garage today. (Hush, Edward, go back to playing the beautiful piano sonatas please?) However, Mother Nature decided I should experience a tornado warning and a flooded front window and garage instead.
And although it didn't last more than 2 hours, I am just wiped out from the stress of it. Even the crew is exhausted from being stressed. Duncan the cat was like WTF? Thanks for the Reiki though Sweden, it was definitely absorbed.
I have a soaking wet wall as the worst of it, and we lost power for a bit. I do wonder when this little 1950s cottage structure will collapse. 25 days left on my lease. Although the paperwork clearly states that if no renewal is sent, the lease continues on a monthly basis as is. It is probably somehow my responsibility to say something to them once the end of the month arrives, but I have learned from these people that the less said, the better. Of course, now I have a soaking wet wall that I suppose they should know about. Grrr. Please don't tell me about the mold. I am sure it has already been growing for years and years.
Despite my best attempts, I still indulged in greasy food yesterday. I still felt I needed a reward for all my accomplishments. And that reward still had to be "unhealthy" for me. For some reason, chicken breast and veggies didn't feel like a reward.
So why didn't I pick up the book? Well, I guess because the pages aren't easy to chew and digest? I've got True Blood to watch tonight, so I'm going to refrain from picking up on Edward's life until I've tackled the garage. Soon Edward, soon.
I have to say though, that many hours after eating, I did hit the gym. Nothing says at least I'm aware of my actions like a 60-minute workout at 2 am while most people are falling into a drunken Saturday night sleep.
I just might spend the rest of today in lazy daisy mode. Chatting with Chicago, who is woefully techno-challenged it seems in regards to cell phones and IM. How endearing. All food is cooked for the week, and as the Red Sox are going to win today's 16-run
Eau de wet canine anyone?
