Way more snow!

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Another blizzard,, wind chill 17 degrees. Spring is almost here,,I remember years that we could not get to church on Easter Sunday for the huge drifts on the roads,, two foot snowfalls..

Called trust attorney office to set up a synchronized phone call between him and CPA doing trust taxes.in an hour or so,, trying to get laundry, dishes, paperwork ..got to d//c dad's phone in their home and get to credit union, change my internet, phone and tv to a bundle.. not enough hours in the day,,

I tried out my new little steam mop I bought last weekend. Tried it in the full bathroom.. it really heats up quickly and gets the floor clean, BUT I will still have to soak the white grout with bleach first.. cannot wait to get two minutes to rub together so I can use it on my kitchen floor and the hardwoods in the bedrooms!! A new toy for Linda!!! See how pathetic my life is?? Jumping for joy about a cleaning mop.... I feel so glamorous.

More snow today!

Not unusual for Michigan, but not requested either!! LOL! Still adjusting to time change, just cannot get up and moving ,even when my alarm clock blares at me in the dark!!
Yearning for walks in the park and woods when the weather is bearable and land is not flooded.

    Our snow has turned to rain. We're in the middle of mud season. *sigh* I'm so tired of Maine.

We DID have a great day yesterday.. DD and i went grocery shopping, then on to Aldi to get a cool mist steamer for her skin, found a new gadget that will hopefully, help me be able to clean my hardwood and tile floors better. Since I can no longer kneel, this is a triangular head steamer mop that scrubs and steams. VERY reasonable price.. two people I talked to in the store, bought one last year and they love it. Will be trying it out in both bathrooms today after work.

DD was approved 100% for U of M..!!!!! thank you , all of you, for your deep prayers and love for her. Today she will call and set up an appointment to get her biopsy,, I will have to reschedule my work,,

Does anybody else out there feel kind of groggy from this time change,, two weeks from now I will be adjusted..

    Ok, more evidence that I'm getting soft in the head. Now I'm all teared up. So glad it's working out for her.

I'll tell you what I told someone else. I stayed up all night long thinking about the sun, and daylight savings time. Then suddenly, it dawned on me. emoticon

Daylight Savings is here!!

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Until November, we now are back in normal time.
I always have a hard time with this part,, but did get some sleep.. so nice to not wake up to an alarm for a day!! Lovely...

Got my coupons organized, DD made shopping list, getting some more fresh fruits if they have decent ones from the U.S. Usually the sale produce is from Chile or Mexico.. All sprayed with DDT for that lovely cancer effect we all cherish.(sarcasm) Labels are so important.. I never buy anything until i validate the origin.
It will take me two weeks to adjust to this archaic time change...

    Wish we stayed on 'this time' year around rather than switching 2 x a year.

Very productive day

Saturday, March 09, 2013

Had day all planned out to be at dad's house. We took our laundry there so we could kill two birds with one stone,,, DD fan vacuum which we had to bring from our house,, I did four loads of laundry and shredded for about three hours, lots of papers of mom's and mine,, mostly mine,, we brought all of her tax papers home to be filed, organized a whole case of playing cards we c=fond in a drawer,, all used, but some possible collectors cards.. I d=found an unopened deck of NFL official playing cards that Dad probably bought in the 80's.. Found a deck of Disney world cards from parents trip there in 1980.

All in all we got a lot accomplished,, two huge paper sacks packed tightly with shredded papers to be recycled. Took trash out, bagged up more trinkets for sale of mom's ,,, two huge stretchy trash bags full..

Whipped up a small pan of lasagna and some garlic knots, a big green salad with green peppers, avocado, fresh mushrooms for late lunch. I am hoping to sit and pay some more bills later,, Ran dishwasher, still have hand dish washing to do, and sorting and organizing my coupons.

So much to do, so little time..

    Way to go. Clearing out a house is hard work.
