I GOT THE DYSON FIXED!!!!! I did it all by myself, which makes it even better. I took the area apart where the on/off button is and put it back together and now it works. I think the button just got off track or something. tongue tongue tongue (Can you tell I'm excited?)

Also got the tub cleaned really well
Finished all the laundry
Enjoyed dinner with family! I made 5 lbs of mashed potatoes, so I have leftover potatoes to eat for the rest of the week, maybe longer! Had cheesecake for desert...I'll probably regret it later, but it was tasty!
I might try vacuuming my car out before bed, since it's so much cooler in the evening, but after cutting the front yard, I'm pretty beat.

I also have gotten all but the shower cleaned in my bathroom, so that's on Monday's list now, as well as:
*be out of bed by noon
*take car through carwash
*spray tires after carwash
*edge grass-This is a 2 part venture, I live on a corner lot and have sidewalks, so it's a lot of work. I look forward to the day I'm working and can pay $30 every other week again and not have to mess with the lawn at all. I also look forward to winter since the grass goes dormant and I don't have to do anything at all to it! I'll at least do side and driveway, then the front walk and front sidewalk tomorrow
***triple bonus points if I get it all edging done in one go!
*schedule dentist appointment (This seems like a small task, but my last 3 appointments have been canceled because I was hospitalized, so I'm very leery of rescheduling again. I might see if I can be "on call" for when they have a cancellation instead.)

Hope the rain holds off and you can get a bunch done today! I hate times when it seems the rain seems to never end. I seem to get so much less done because the rain makes me lazy.

Choc-I guess I was lucky. When I brought my kitten home (she's 7 now) I didn't have to do anything but set up her litter box and she went right to it. Don't most of them figure it out on their own?

Becky, you rock! Congratulations on fixing the Dyson!!!!!

Please don't overdo it there: it really sounds as if you're working very hard.

Ivy, pottering on but without spectacular results yet.

I just took a shower and wiped it out, so it's clean!

Probably will go to bed at a reasonable time, as cheesecake is causing some grumblings already :( It was worth it though!

I may wait a couple days to tackle the edging. I feel a lazy day coming on tomorrow :) Maybe I'll just go through the carwash and vacuum the car while I'm there. Their vacuums work so much better than home ones.

Ivy,
someone posted something about ChronicBabe, and I was looking there and found this:

http://www.chronicbabe.com/articles/776/ (Look at #8)

It reminds me so much of myself..especially my congratulating myself on fixing the Dyson. Hahaha!

Heh. Too right.

And I loved: cuz I'm gonna clog your lap lanes again and you're gonna like it!

LOL. Too true!

Also went to police station and picked up new ID check form (which has been on my list for ages); posted some letters and payed a bill. And got more prescriptions. And did something off my stress list. And I'm totally proud of myself.

I'm going to try 10-15 minutes of washing the dirtiest bits on my very grubby car (it has been egged, *and* I drove through a mud puddle on Friday) and then hope that the imminent downpour will wash it clean. And after that, I think I might crash.

Yep, most of the time they do figure out the house training bit. We have a litter tray all set up, but they didn't figure it out till this morningish. We have one cushion wee'd on. They are both dashing round the dining room, but they are still pretty skittish. I'm trying to hand feed them off the roast duck we had for dinner last night. I did get them both eating from my hand but coco is taking a long time to work up the courage to come out.

Monday TLC

* get dressed
* eat lunch
* mop floors
* dishes
* keep cuddling/feeding kittens

Were you joking when you said they were feral, Choc? What's their life story?

I do envy you. Kittens are absorbing, and a joy (when they're not piddling on carpets and cushions).

These two arent really feral. We were told that they were, but really they're just abit skittish. i think they were handled if they came up to their original family. They were born to a farm cat. They are figuring out house training, although most of yesterday they just played with the cat litter! I have some photos which i hope i have linked to correctly! I'm not overwhelmingly tech minded!

Oh, Choc, they're gorgeous! :-)

Thanks for sharing the photos: what a great start to the morning :-).

My quick whinge. They SAID we had huge downpours coming, so I sponged the car and left it outside to be rinsed, because I didn't have the energy to do a thorough wash and rinse myself. I think I jinxed the weather. No rain. I hate to think how muddy and streaky the car is going to look. Oh well.

On the plus side, it's not raining! Yet.
