Thy Porcelain Awaits

Yesterday, I was just plain tired – and the rain made me achy and even more tired. Work was busy and by the time I got home, I was pretty unmotivated. So, I managed to fall asleep on the couch mid-evening. Nothing got done.

Tonight, however, I hope to start attacking my grout haze again and put yet another major dent in it. It would be nice to wrap that up this week. Besides, I still need to finish the bathroom walls and get ready to wallpaper not to mention there’s still some painting to do. (This includes the medicine cabinet door. Would be great to have a mirror in there again!)

So, there is no shortage of inside jobs I could be doing in the evenings. I just need the energy to do them.

If it doesn’t rain Saturday (and the forecast is already saying rain), I should be working on the driveway/carport with Lawrence. This is the job that ideally will put the carport back on level ground, reinforce the side edge of the driveway and keep it from deteriorating any further. This is a job that has to get done before the weather breaks. (That, and before Lawrence is no longer in good enough shape to do it. I hate to have such thoughts but you need to be realistic sometimes.)

Because the kitten spends a lot of time in the kitchen, it’s been hard to really do anything in there even though there's still plenty to be done. I’m still hoping to find her a home. I may actually have a few fallbacks, but I’m not going to jinx myself by not continuing to try and find her a home in the meantime. Cross your fingers ...

We had a puppy move into our backyard 5 yrs. ago . I am still trying to find him a home. Good luck finding your kitten a home. I think the kitten has already found a new home.

Debbie -- Well, I still have a ways to go. I'll get there though!

Karen -- I'd love to keep her but it is just too much chaos, especially with the house torn apart. (She makes my other cat even more insane than he already is.)
