list checking and mopping up...

We got a few things checked off our list today. The lawn is clean and manicured and we got the living room totally finished. We got a nice oriental rug that really made the room.

My next jobs to tackle are the closets and the rest of the kitchen. I have been getting sidetracked easier these days and usually wind up on the computer or on the couch!

My day started with a bang-or I should say drip. The water heater in the upstairs apartment that I just moved out of sprung a leak and the renter was out of town. The operative word being upstairs! The renter belows calls me at 6:30 this morning to inform me that it is raining in her laundry area. I get over there and it is one big soppy mess. It was a relatively small leak, but it must have been going to town for several hours.

I was thankful that it wasn't as bad as it could have been and that the water heater had a cut off valve!

Rick's mother is having major back surgery tomorrow so we will be up at the hospital most of Monday. Later in the evening I am going to have to wade through a stack of bills that I have let pile up like a dummy.

I hope everyone has a great Monday to start your week off :)

I wish I had about half your energy! And an oriental rug for my living room (I stubbornly call it the Parlor--and everyone else does, too, now). My crabgrass is coming up nicely! By the way, I love "Sula"--or anything by Toni Morrison--though "Beloved" was incredibly dark.
