The Akron Canton airport is down in the same direction as one of my major weaknesses - Chick Fil A. Well it's a good thing Chick Fil A isn't open at 6am!
Came back, fired off some "ha ha, I'm going back to bed and you have to work" emails to friends, and in my email to Sharon (who didn't have to work or go to class today) I mentioned I was tempted by Chick Fil A.
Went to bed, having set the alarm for 8am. Yeah, right. Hit snooze til 930am (it's my mutant power - for a good chunk of that time I'm not even aware I'm hitting snooze!). Stayed in bed a little while longer since the kittens were in bed entertaining me (dozing off, wrestling with each other, giving me love, etc). Got up, checked email, and there's a proposal from Sharon - do I want to join her in her mattress shopping excursion, which would take her down in the direction of Chick Fil A - we could do lunch.
Called her, worked out the plans for later in the day, and got distracted by the kittens. Here's Simon outdoing himself...
Tucker and Moxie were also up to no good - now he's teaching her his bad habits, like getting up on top of the entertainment center. Like she's not good enough at stirring up trouble on her own!?
Notice how her eyes just pretty much disappear in most photos!? She's a master of disguise - she can be in the shadows watching us and we never even realize it sometimes! Plus she's so fast that it's next to impossible to get a good picture of her while she's awake.
After losing some time to that I ate a quick bowl of cereal (Cocoa Krispies!), jumped in the car, drove to the garden, and picked veggies.
Came back from the garden, hopped in the shower, and it wasn't long after that that Sharon showed up. She got to play with the kittens, and then we headed on out for lunch (YAY CHICK FIL A!) and her mattress shopping. Man, that girl was on A LOT of mattresses today! Bouncey bouncey bouncey! Got home around 330 or 4, played with the kittens some more, and then after she left I stalled for awhile before starting on cleaning and organizing - gotta have this place tidied up so we can put it on the market reeeeal soon!!
But how am I supposed to keep working so hard, when there are constant distractions like this?!?!
Sorry, but something like that just can't be avoided! ;-) 'Sides, I've got through Sunday evening or Monday to do the cleaning/organizing work, plus make pickles (they're sitting in salt now), make plum jelly for the first time ever, get some client work done, etc etc I can pace myself! :)
Almost time for dinner - which means a break from work. I think it's gonna be leftovers from the homemade pizzas we fed Jay last nite, plus brownies and Ben & Jerry's chocolate fudge chunk ice cream - yum! (I have yet to get to try the Sticky Toffee ice cream Dave's been raving about!) Maybe I'll get some reading in, or watch a movie. Still need to watch Dad's House of Flying Daggers so I can return it to him next time we visit my folks...
Y'know, I look forward to some "alone time" at home once in awhile, but it's really lonely without Brett here. :( Could be a long 4 days!
