So. Tired.....

Spent yesterday cleaning the bedroom. Skipped the workout, but did MORE than that in the room....see, my darling husband - whom I love dearly - has a problem. unable to acknowledge that we are affluent enough to own a.......clothes hamper. Yes, I know - they are SO expensive that most folk don't have them....but we *do*. And I check it daily to see if it needs to be dealt with....

But he......well, he removes his clothes and dumps them at the foot of the bed...and then forgets about them. I began by clearing the end of the bed daily...but it got old fast. (He's an adult. I shouldn't HAVE to clean up after him!) I went to 1x/week...then 1x/month, then I quit. I kept pointing out our lovely hamper...I even pulled it out one day and SHOWED it to him....but to no avail.

Well, yesterday I'd had *enough*. 3 loads of laundry later (OK, 4 - because I had some of our normal to do, too) I finally have all of his clothes accounted for. I hope.....we'll see if it sticks (see, I'm smart. I tore the room apart finding his clothes, then....."got tired". :snicker: HE had to put the room back together....maybe it'll stick. (Doubt it, but I can hope, right?)

This AM was spent printing out the next 2 semesters of History (because the CD wouldn't work, and wouldn't work, even on the Mac-mini...when if finally DID decide to work, I printed off EVERYTHING we needed to finish the book. LOTS of paper, but I didn't want to risk losing the stuff.) and the current Science module. I still need to do the photocopies for this week....but I stopped to make soap. :lol:

3 batches: Chocolate Milk, Oats-n-Goats, and Plain Jane. (Or....we're thinking of calling it "Just Milk!"'s just plain soap. No scents, no colors. Still thinking....)

Gotta get lunch ready...then we're heading to the back of the property for more target practice. Wal-Mart has the best prices on ammo, but we're going to try to ration it......we both blew thru 50 rounds, we'll keep it to 2 clips each. Maybe. :wink: (Here, if you live outside the city limits, you can shoot on your own property. No special permission or set-up required. Yes, we take advantage of that!)

Hope you're having a great day!
