Update to my last post, this is how my day went….well, I’m not going to go through all the boring details, but this is how I get distracted.
On my daily to-do list— take my medication and give the dog hers. Yes, I have an alarm on my phone that tells me to take my medications, but a lot of times I turn off the alarm and forget to take my meds.
Those tasks were a no brainer since I had to turn off the alarm and check them off my list.
Another bullet on my list, is to clean the kitchen. It is done the night before, but I have a vampire in the basement, remember? While he mostly cleans up after himself, there is a little bit of my morning mess as well as what he left during the night.
Dog wants to go out…I walk the dog.
This time my kitchen cleaning translated to….oh! Maybe it’s time to clean the Keurig. Yes!
Clean the Keurig.
Feed the animals.
oh! There’s a puked up cat hairball on the floor to clean up. Bare feet are a great detection unit for this problem.
Dog wants to sit on deck for her daily solar power charge. Let dog out.
oh! Maybe I should change the filter in the refrigerator since I’m doing the coffee maker. Since we need ice until a full cycle goes through the ice maker (that’s what I was told by the delivery man), I take the ice already in the bin and put it in a bag and wait for the bin to get full again while using the ice in the bag. Then I empty the ice bin again and start over with newly purified ice–remember, that is what I was told to do.
Let dog in.
I change filter to fridge, drop ice on floor.
oh! I clean up dog puke because her sensitive tummy couldn’t handle the ice cube she ate.
I didn’t give up, I soldiered on.
I enjoyed the freshly made coffee from my newly cleaned machine. yum.
After the coffee, I went on with a project not on my list but it was a have-to-do because we are getting a new bed. Now that the monstrosity of the 25 year old bed is out of the way, I think I want to paint. I know that I don’t want that bed frame going back in there but I may lose the fight to my husband. For some reason, he likes it.
Since I have to wait all day for the delivery people, and have been given two different time frames, I will be home all day.
So….take my medications, give the dog hers, walk the dog, clean the kitchen…..
I hope I move beyond that today.
