Working on getting ready for work...no motivation. I'd like to choke the person who decided an early Monday meeting would be intelligent.

I was creating a Word document a few minutes ago and the wretched thing crashed. When I logged in again it advised me that they were restoring it to the version created on 01/01/1601 !!!!!

I know my laptop isn't exactly this week's model but that's ridiculous!

Even without the jets on, the warm water is so soothing. So yesterday and today I was in morning and night.

Perfect for after a big cake project - and I start another one tomorrow!
A good long warm soak is s-o-o good when you have muscle and joint pain. I miss a bath since I moved here as there is only a shower. I know a shower is more hygienic, more economical, quicker, etc but it isn't the same.

Cool to have that at home. Nothing feels as good as slipping into a hot tub with the jets massaging your body with warm water.

Oh no, LP! So sorry to hear that. Take care of yourself.

Oh no! You need a different hobby, LP, this falling stuff is not working! Feel better soon!

Just got back from the pool. No rugrats today!

Sitting with my feet propped up and enjoying a nice cold brew. Just spent a couple of hours doing the annual scrubbing/detailing of our shower doors.

Glenn takes them off for me and sets them up on sawhorses out on the back porch. Then I "go to town" cleaning the year's film, etc. off. They're not too awfully bad because I do an interim cleaning at the first of each month, but that's while they're still attached to the frame in the bathroom.

I'm a bit picky about cleaning stuff and the bathrooms and kitchen are my highest priority victims.

I discovered a great industrial tile/shower cleaner at Sam's that's nothing short of awesome. But...I have to wear stuff that I don't care gets ruined. There's some sort of heavy-duty bleach in it that takes the color out of anything immediately, but it cleans like a son-of-a-gun.

The doors and the track and frame inside are clean and like new and ready for another year and I'm enjoyin' my beer.
