With the holiday on Friday, thought I could get some stuff done around the house. Well....
Went in to work for a while on Friday to make up for time that I missed due to dentist appointments.
Went to Home Depot yesterday, got paint for both bathrooms. (Behr Lilac Rose for the guest bath: Behr Suntan Glow for the master.) Had to go to another HD to find floor tiles that I liked. (whitish marble for the guest and wood look for the master.) Haven't done anything to either room yet, but did fill out the rebate form for the paint.
Need to go back to get the wood to replace the floor in the master bath and (since the room's going to be torn up anyhow) a new toilet. Need to go back because I couldn't handle (carry, load into the car, unload from the car) these items by myself and ex #2 has not been heard from. (Should that matter? Unfortunately it does, he was suppose to be helping with the work as repayment for some of what he owes me. Yes, I'm more than a little peeved! There's this great invention called a telephone.....)
Got gas for the old lawn mower. The grass is too tall for the reel mower that I bought, so will have to use the fuel powered one one more time. Keeping fingers crossed that it doesn't rain before it cools down a little. Now I'm just waiting for the sun to be a little lower in the sky before I mow.
Did some of the weeding along the sidewalk. There's more to do, but at least the largest of the weekds are gone.
The threads are pulled for a couple of cross stitch round robins that are here. Haven't threaded a needle yet, but the threads are pulled.
Went to Barnes and Noble to look for a book for an upcoming needlework class. They didn't have it, but were able to order it for me.
At least some things got done.
