After pulling a very unwilling Colin out from under my bed on Tuesday, I knew I needed to clean. I've stored things there for years. But when Mom and Dad were both gone, I put a really large, flat box there to hold family mementos -- including the letters Dad wrote to Mom during World War II.
It's actually difficult to even move the box, which won't slide under the end of the bed. But I got it out, dusted it off and emptied it. Then managed to find places for ALL of the contents (no small feat).
There was a second large, flat box -- not as large, thankfully. This was full of comic books. Some are 12 cents -- meaning they're some of the first comics we ever purchased as children! I need to re-box those and figure where to store them. But maybe over the weekend we should read a few. (smile)
I got the floor cleaned under the bed. And finally removed the phone cord that ran behind several pieces of furniture. We haven't actually used a phone cord in there for years. Hahaha.
I rearranged some minor things. And cleaned the rug, which really needed it.
I put my fur stole into the smaller closet, in the corner. It seems like the perfect spot for it...
I also did two loads of dishes in the dishwasher. And picked up a bit in the kitchen.
And I made two long lists. One for the grocery store, and another for buying supplements at Walmart.
Marilyn and I went to Freddies immediately after she got home from work to shop. We'll try to get to Walmart soon, too.
I still need to do the garbage and recycling. I'm really tired, though...
I think I'll get a nap, first!
Henry is always good about taking his daily pill. Plus he seems to LOVE his new eye ointment! He does fight putting it in, nor does he try to rub the eye after it's there. Marilyn and I figure it must feel pretty darn good to him. Imagine how bad it must feel!
I managed somehow to get my 4,000 steps today.
Tomorrow is the last day for several seasonal staff members.
Time to nap. More tomorrow, hopefully!
