I woke up early today, read the paper, made baked cinnamon donuts, and then...cleaned the entire apartment! Can I confess something to you, Dearies? One of my favorite things on the planet (in my former life) was having a Saturday morning in which I played Happy Housewife and did things like bake and clean and putz about the house organizing and tidying.
But I have not done that in years!
Between me getting sicker, Stewey getting sick, moving, playing with my Guild Sisters, and then the arrival of Jersey Boy and the start of dialysis, I've gotten completely out of the habit of Saturdaying. I relied on Cottage Care to keep me from being featured on reality teevee, but I always felt so guilty for having "help", and I had a hard time justifying the expense for such a small place. Today, though,I was determined to give it a go, and despite a major treatment hangover, I hitched up my britches and went for it.
I'm happy to report that I survived...kind of, but it might be a minute before I have the ability to do it again. I'm wiped out, but it's a good kind of wiped out and I have something to show for it. Rich is happy that I got some exercise and seem to be less "on the ceiling" with angst over the dust bunnies, so...Good Show, Tubby! Way to sweat up your jammies and get a little work out in at the same time!
Tomorrow, if I can raise my arms or get our of the big girl sleigh bed, I am going to tackle that cube room studio/Jersey Boy empire headquarters once and for all. It has become a glorified closet and catch-all space, and I am in desperate need of some order with respects to my stitchy stash.
Charleston cheese dip and chicken fajitas for dinner tonight and tomorrow I am going to make a Smitten Kitchen brisket with mashed potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts with shallots.
Thank you for your prayers and happy thoughts for good sessions this week. They were still rough, but I really do feel like I'm going to get the hang of it eventually....just in time for transplant, I hope!
Happy, happy Saturday to you and yours! I hope you do everything that makes your heart sing! Come tell me all about it!
