I could really use a foot massage.

If I may, I would like to put (under a cut, because I'm nice like that) my To Do list from today out here. I'm feeling pretty boss, is what I'm saying. This is from TODAY.

(Um, it should be noted that it's not just a list, but what I FINISHED on my list. Ahem.)

  • Vacuum whole house [2 stories]

  • dust living room/dining room

  • hang new pictures (4) 40 x 35in each

  • go to Ikea and get shelf for laundry room, 2 pots

  • repot all cactuses to rid them off gnats (8 plants) [used tongs to keep my fingers ouchie-free because I r smart]

  • hit fabric store for new fabric for sofa [1.25 yds]

  • sew Big Cushions for bed (3 36 inch square pillows)

  • sew new sofa cushions with trim (5 17 inch square pillows with trim)

  • clean kitchen counters

  • reorganize shelves in kitchen/nook

  • sweep kitchen, foyer, bathrooms

  • mop same

  • de-poop backyard from Sally Derg

  • mow lawn with lowered deck (I live on 1/3 acre. It's a lot of lawn, and the grass was so thick it killed the engine twice)

  • sweep patios

  • move extra landscape stones - about 20 20lb rocks

  • rearrange patio furniture both front and back patios

  • wash out empty outdoor pots, move to garage

  • break down all recyclables, put in bin

  • drag all bins out for pickup

  • spread ant bait out back [fire ants hurt so bad, it's not even funny]

  • groom Sally derg's nails, re-shave her fur to make her smiles from the coolness outdoorses

  • de-fur Darthanne and Hope kitties

  • fold last of the laundry

I FREAKING ROCK. I will celebrate with bad TV tonight [see icon], a cheesy movie for research (hahaha, it's R.M., Special Edition) and some ab-work, because I only did half of my workout this morning. the 58 minute part, not the 16 minute part, har har. :)

OH AND I WILL COOK MYSELF A STEAK & MUSHROOMS, make a SALAD and have the rest of this fabulous Pinot Noir, because I earned it. Heh. Also: NOM.

*cough* I'm not mentioning the 18 foot ladder I was supposed to drag inside so I could clean the vaulted ceiling and dust the picture ledge, wash the upper windows, etc. That can happen tomorrow.

The kids come home tomorrow from their vacation of kayaking and lake swimming and apparent crazy shopping up in Ely, MN, and you might read a hint of jealousy in that sentence. A teensy bit. They had a terrific time with their dad, and I'm looking forward to all the noise and chaos that will arrive back where it belongs tomorrow night. Speaking of, I am officially making a note to make all of my bread tomorrow so there's something to eat in the house [two loaves, two pizza doughs, pan of cinnamon rolls]. Err, without kids to feed, I kinda don't know how to feed myself. I've been grazing on apples and grapes and wine and cheese and having cereal and yogurt, and that's about it.

Not that I don't love my kids, I so very do, but man, I would be creepy thin if I didn't have other mouths to feed, I'm just saying.

I have this whole thing about mocking those who buy into those Enzyte pills and the like, and how weird I find those commercials, but that will have to wait until tomorrow or later. This last sentence brought to you by the memory of my ex-husband asking me what language Frasier was speaking, because "that didn't sound like American." LOL.

I finally hit on a layout that I like very much. I flip-flop back and forth as to how I like my LJ to look, and finally got it down pat. Not that it matters, much, you most likely have your blog set to show everything in your style. But I'm happy. :)

In conclusion, buy yourself (if you can find it, it's as rare as hen's teeth) a bottle or twelve of Clayhouse's Petite Syrah from 2005. Absolute perfection.

I am exhausted for you.

If I hadn't been averaging 10 hours of sleep at night while the kids were gone, I'd be exhausted, too. :D

That was nice while it lasted...

You go you! I am most impressed. Also exhausted.

Girl, I'm gone. I just threw a steak on the grill and poured another glass of Paso Robles. MMMMMM, mid-coast California wines!

I bought a NZ white the other day, but I'm too lazy to check the name to see if I bought shit or not, lol. Tell me your favorite local wines, woman!

your icon made me laugh so hard that I hurt something.

Oh, I had a very nice Montana something or other the other week. It was a Sauvignon Blanc. It was particularly windy that day.

Villa Maria is a nice easy drinking label, also Wither Hills, eh, I don't know, I'll have to look, I'm on the petrol and glue sniffing at the moment.

Blasphemy, when is it NOT funny?!?
Jun. 22nd, 2009 01:00 am (UTC)
Yay, it'll be so nice to see the kiddos! And a house full of baked goods, oh meh gooodnasssss YUM!
Jun. 22nd, 2009 01:45 am (UTC)
OMGEHD, I miss my kids so much!! <3 <3 <3

And I'm turning those cinnamon rolls into ginger orange rolls, WOOT.
Jun. 22nd, 2009 01:15 am (UTC)
Damn, woman! I'm all exhausted just from reading all that. I wish I had your energy.
Jun. 22nd, 2009 01:45 am (UTC)
Weel, as I said to a2zmom, I've been getting ridiculous amounts of sleep. Amazing what can be accomplished in a silent house.... :D
Jun. 22nd, 2009 01:21 am (UTC)
You GO girlfriend! I too have occasional bursts of manic energy and get huge to-do lists accomplished. However, I like to reward myself with oceans of time doing nothing productive....
Jun. 22nd, 2009 01:46 am (UTC)
HAHAHAHA, there's been LOADS of unproductive time this past week and change, this is me making up for it. Hee.
Jun. 22nd, 2009 01:23 am (UTC)
Admit it. You are simply not human.

We must taste that wine together soon!!!
Jun. 22nd, 2009 01:04 pm (UTC)
If we can find it here, we shall!! I know they keep it on hand in the gayborhood, I'll make sure we get down there.
Jun. 22nd, 2009 02:35 am (UTC)
oh, gods, i remember having a HUGE lawn and fire-ant-hills that were all less than a yard apart...

i flamed the backyard once. did nothing for the ants, but *did* get me grounded and made the lawn greener, after about a month...

my dad paid my $40 to mow the lawns (a 1/4 acre, but that was the backyard - the front was teeny) and i never thought he paid me enough, because of the ANTS. those things are EVIL.
Jun. 22nd, 2009 02:52 am (UTC)
Fuck. I'm tired just from reading your list. Shit.

Still..good on you! And your layout is very kinda soothing in a winey sort of way. :-)
Jun. 22nd, 2009 01:03 pm (UTC)
HEEE. I did have some cheese with that whine, though-

Oh, wrong kind. :D
Jun. 22nd, 2009 01:08 pm (UTC)
I just finished my big tasks for today: print, bind and submit my thesis, write to some peeps asking if they would write me a letter of commendation for Westminster U, so now I'm free to go and enjoy life... by cleaning my room. And doing the laundry.


Also: my captcha says "underfed". Hmmm... is this thing really that secure? ;)

Care to share your energy? :-P

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
