A Rainy Saturday

Joe had to be at work by 7:00 a.m. this morning. Wouldn't be so bad if he didn't have to drive 60+ miles (1 hr. 15 mins.) one way! He left before the rest of us even opened our eyes.

The boys played quietly this morning, allowing me to stay in bed until about 8:00 a.m. Very nice.

After breakfast, I got a little too brave. I did something dumb. Really dumb. I vacuumed my dining room and formal living room. I could stand it no longer. It was like an obsession. The hardwood floors in both rooms literally had stuff all over them. It wasn't fair to such pretty floors. The oriental rug in the "red room" had lots of shedding. Anytime anyone walks into that room, that happens. It drives me buggy!

Plus, I think my dyson vacuum cleaner was missing our very close relationship. We were both going through withdrawal.

After my vacuuming, I wanted to dump the canister, but the trashcan was full. I had Carter help me lift out the bag (it was super heavy). So, with that all done, I realized the dishwasher was full, so I ran that.

Now, I'm crampy. My abdomen also aches a little. I know. I'm dumb. Really dumb. My first full day of "being normal," and I vacuum, do trash, and dishes (and breakfast for six) within one hour of waking.

So, I sit with my laptop watching the Food Network. Sigh...
