Counting Down to the Countdown

I made a list of things still undone in both the kitchen and the bathroom. It was dizzying to say the least -- and not in a good way.

I’m hoping to knock out at least a few of these activities before the mother departs for her trip. This matters because you know I am going to finish the bathroom and kitchen in her absence.

There. I said it. I said I was going to finish those two d*mned rooms. Now, I just have to do it.

I’m hoping, but not particularly hopeful. Yesterday’s rain delay kept me from crossing variety of chores off the to-do list and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t stressing at least a little about that. And rain is on the forecaster’s agenda for much of this week. Even as I type this, gray and black overtake what was a marginally blue sky.

That will grossly limit any activities I can do outside. So … I’ll have to see what I can get done indoors the next few nights. (Assuming I even feel like doing anything at all. Looks like work is going to be a real bear this week, particularly the first few days.)
