It's not so much "what are you doing" as "what I did". I think I got every little dot of pollen dusted and vacuumed from the sun room. I moved everything, and dusted every nook and cranny. Looks good! Till I open the windows again...

Also made a full dinner, and did two runs through the washer/dryer in relationship to the fabric stuff in the sun room. I'm pooped.

Right now I'm enjoying a full serving of red wine. I think of it as my alcohol rubdown from the inside. Can't wait till it gets to my ankles.

A half sheet of tempered Masonite or plywood will also do the job.

I think I'm getting close. I'll just keep toodling along until someone tells me to stop, then I'll find a bed.

Renewed the car and truck license and registrations yesterday and today DH and I have to renew our drivers license. Glad I remembered, would hate to take the drivers test again. :-)

Management has been told twice by HUD to get one. It will be the day of my next wedding before they do. Management says it should come out of maintenance money and they say it should come from office supplies. I don't really care. It is not my carpet, so it can go to shreds.

Had to call AAA for a jump. Something keeps draining my car battery, and my mechanic can't figure out what's doing it. We thought it might have been the phone charger, but apparently not. Then DH called and left a message, he was carless as his was at the mechanic's, and wanted lunch. I picked him up, we went to lunch, and when we got back to the car, we had a ticket! DH had plugged the wrong meter! The car next to us got an extra hour for free. It cracked me up, I have to watch DH every minute, apparently. He was not happy.

Did the mechanic check the integrity of the battery? I had a almost new car fail to start and it turned out to be a defective battery.

I just had him put in a new battery a few months ago after AAA had to jump it several times in a row. I'll be taking it back in in a couple days for oil change, hopefully they can find the problem.
