So I have a week without the munchkin as she goes camping for a week with the other Young Women from the church youth group and other youth groups in this area. Historically I have scheduled this annual week, my only week) to the rafters and been out dancing and seeing buddies or working on huge projects around the house. One year I took a few days to decorate Missy’s room. Another year it took me two days to dig out all the trash from her room. Swings and roundabouts. Other years I have done gardening or garage projects or donated time to a valuable cause or two.
This year, her room is tidy and just needs a bit of a go round with the vacuum cleaner. It is decorated already. I have two blinds to install, one on the stairwell and one in the spare room so that the neighbours don’t continually get a shock as I am not particularly careful about being robed in our own home and sometimes nosey people cop an eyeful.
But this time I am tired. I am also superbly alluring as in the past couple of weeks I have broken out in blisters all along my legs and now on my eyes. So the probability of dating is off the cards right now until this calms down.
Either I have used a product which doesn’t agree with me – there are a couple of candidates – or I need to nap, lots. I’m going to go with the napping option I think. I have Netflix, takeaway menu’s, healthy fridge food and the ability to mimic a sloth when required. I think I’m set.
Apart from now I’m thinking about that grout in the bathroom and how I don’t like it and how I have time to sort it out now. And the garden needs mowing. The hedges need taking down a few feet in the back garden, the shed # 2 needs a weathertight roof. And the floor in the living room could do with a sand and varnish. And the hallway needs painting, and the ironing needs to be put away, and I need to do some paperwork. And I could do with getting all the tools back to the shed. And I haven’t investigated the loft yet apart from sticking my head up there and saying “Huh, that looks pretty full”, and I have to go over some quotes for driveway stuff.
Otherwise though, I think I will get a bit of a nap schedule going. Hopefully.
