Clean Sinks and Let There Be Light!

I spent AGES cleaning out the utility room sinks. That was one NASTY job, let me tell you! Then I cleaned the cat boxes (ugh), which were worse than usual this week. (No more drinking my leftover cereal milk, I think!) And finally I climbed our ladder in the garage to change light bulbs. Don't even ask how many trips up and down that took, even though I'd taken two bulbs up the first trip...

Then I sat to hurry, hurry, hurry to make the deadline for submitting to Writer's Digest Short Short Story Competition. I decided on two stories, but I'm not that thrilled with either one of them, actually. I had a third I wanted to submit, but at $20 a pop (!!!), I couldn't quite go there...

Marilyn is still at work (surprise). I hope she gets to come home soon. It's December, but she's there late all the time. Just imagine January and beyond!

I need to work on the festival website (!!!) and I'd hoped to color my hair today (what was I thinking?). I've barely started the garbage and recycling. I'm hungry and tired and it's past 7:00 p.m. What's wrong with this picture? I guess I need to figure out what to fix for dinner... (sigh)

I suppose I should go to the office tomorrow, but I might not if I think I can get more done by staying home.

Oh! I do have those photos from yesterday to share, if I ever find time. The photos of the fireboats are very cool! And I got a good shot of the Coast Guard helicopter, too, hovering above them.
