Friday at last.
The Überhund was playing with Gandhi early this morning in the bedroom, chasing her around while she hopped around on the furniture, so I woke up at 6:30, which was too early, but it couldn't be helped. I had set the alarm clock for seven and thought I might as well get up, because those two weren't about to quit their game. They were very feisty. It was give Mom a hard time morning.
So I put on my slippers and very drowsily made myself a cup of coffee and watched repeats of the news, which I shouldn't have done and which were all about the events of yesterday. It was not a good way to start the day.
I decided to get dressed and first had to decide what to wear and I wanted to look colorful, so I wore lavender colored leggings with a purple t-shirt and my black mini skirt and my brown boots. I added a blue necklace and a multi colored beaded necklace so I looked like a happy camper and all cheerful. It was like I was going to a party.
My hair was terribly squashed and I had to do some work to get it to stand up again the way it is supposed to, short of getting in the shower and washing it, for which I had no time. Then I took my extra strong hairspray, that can withstand hurricanes, and made it stay in place. It can poke your eye out. Caution!
In the meanwhile, the dog was laying by the door waiting for me to get done so I could take him out. He braves the hairspray and the perfume. He just sneezes a couple of times.
I now have everything planned so that I am consistently five minutes late to therapy, but I do miss all the traffic this way and am not in danger of getting run over when I have to cross the busy street. I figure my safety is worth something too, especially since my pedals are funky and don't always move me ahead when I think they will.
I made a complete sculpture this morning, but it wasn't a very difficult one and I am getting the hang of it, so I sculpt rapidly. The next one I'm going to make is more difficult, but I wanted to jack up my self esteem a bit by making an easy one first. Actually, it was easier than I thought it was going to be and I was surprised that I had finished it when the morning came to an end. It needs to dry just a little bit so I can hollow it out on Monday.
When I got home, I decided to write my new schedule down in my agenda, so that it would all become more clear to me and so that I could see on which days I was actually doing what. I have therapies on every day, but I have three afternoons off, so that's not too bad. I also have some holidays coming up. so some of these days are going to be canceled, which I think is a darn shame, because I want to go to those therapies.
The Exfactor's brother and sister in law are visiting him for a couple of days, but they are not planning on coming over to see me, which kind of surprises me, because I thought I got along well with the sister in law and had talked to her several times on the phone since our divorce. I'm not really put out, just a little bit surprised as I was expecting them to come by and it would have been a good reason for me to finish my house cleaning. I would have enjoyed seeing her, but I guess I'm really divorced from the family now.
I think Toby is all better. I haven't heard him sneeze at all today. He is very affectionate and hangs out in the kitchen all day long and whenever I go in there he is ready to be petted by me. He was such a miserable heap of a cat last week and now he is a nice normal cat again. Antibiotics are great!
That's all of my news for now. Tomorrow is another day of house cleaning. I really must get serious about the bathroom. I'll wake up with lots of energy and just do it.
Have a good evening, you all. The sun is shining here and has been all day.
