Today was day four of working on cleaning my mom's old bedroom. So far I have removed 9 contractor's bags of utter trash, plus the recycling and two laundry baskets of clothes to wash and possibly give away. We also reorganized her room downstairs where she currently sleeps. Anything mouse chewed is getting tossed... and a lot of things have been chewed. Yuck. And of course the weather is beastly, with no just high temps, but also high humidity. I haven't run in two or three days, because it has been so miserable. I am going to go out and run tonight though. It might only be a short run (I will see how I feel), but I am getting out there. Cooper absolutely refuses to go outside except to do his business I am not forcing him to, as I don't want to make him sick.
Mom thinks she is getting out of the hospital today (I don't), but if she doesn't I will be out there again tomorrow doing more cleaning. I hate cleaning. I especially hate cleaning when it is hot and sticky. I know I am whining... sigh. It is just that kind of day. Maybe I will be more upbeat tomorrow.
Kayaking was fun last night. We went to Presque Isle in Erie. It is a great mix of swamp, stream, lagoon and lake paddling. And all in just two hours. It was kind of windy (to go with the heat), so the lake was choppy. It was fun. We didn't see any beaver, but there were quite a few kayakers out there, so the beavers were probably hiding. I made for a very late night though. I didn't get home until nearly 11:30pm. I was going to get up early this morning and run, but I slept through my alarm.
