Good morning everyone! Thanks for starting the thread, lennon!
I'm waiting for the library to open. I had good sleep last night, I don't think I mentioned that on Thursday night the dog had to go out in the middle of the night which would have been fine, she wasn't having any bladder problem, she did what she usually does when we go out at night and we came back in. But shortly after that she woke up and was panting, which is her anxiety. So of course, I was worried that she felt something in her bladder then, so even though she fell asleep not too long after, I was up for 3-4 hours again. Last night she slept through the night so I'm sure she's okay, I just don't understand the anxiety episodes. I'm going to talk to the vet about her increased hesitation on the stairs, I think she has joint pain again and maybe that's causing it. I have to remind myself about the pain being worse than she lets on, maybe it's time for some kind of arthritis meds for her.

It has been a really rough week->month->start to 2023. I am back in my master bedroom last night and I had a pretty good nights sleep. The kitties and I had breakfast and I feel ready to start the weekend off. I am going to start on my bedroom and master bathroom for Saturday. I need to get my CPAP set up again now that I am in master bedroom. I also want to get my clothes sorted out and my closet.
I will call Mom tonight as she needed her TV replaced and it should be delivered today but I don’t know if it will be in time for it to be installed or if she will be without TV until Monday. I hope it can get set up today. I also need to talk to her PT and see about the passive circulation exerciser for her legs. She needs it to keep her circulation going but it needs to be passive rather than requiring her to pedal. Something she can have her feet on while she watches TV.
I have to focus on just the next thing today as I dont think I can handle the whole scope of what I need to get done.
If I try to think of the big picture I will just hide and do nothing.
So I will keep track of the semi big picture on my note pad and record what I get done in steps here but I will focus on only the next thing I need to do. I am an N = 1 woman today - working in ones and even tiny bits of items in ones with lots of encouragement (music, sound therapy, audible book, etc).
Focus list -

Good morning TML! Working in ones is good! Or working in fractions, if necessary!
I went to the library and took out one more book than I returned. For a while there it was the opposite way and I'm now down to a reasonable number of library books at home at one time. Well, reasonable for me.
I'm trying to think of a plan for today too, maybe working from one end of the floor to the other. I need something to keep me focused today.

I also hate phoning and making follow up calls! Absolutely loathe them so you have my sympathies and good wishes!
- Had meeting with bathroom designer, and organised a follow up appointment to see what he comes up with for Thursday morning
- Got car washed. Caused minor chaos in the process as I took it to a manual car wash place that was quite busy. By the time I got to the front of the line....my car battery died right on cue! Thankfully the guys that worked there sorted me out, pushing my car back and bringing out one of theirs and supplying some jump leads (I do have a set in my car, but my boyfriend couldn't find them. Need a whole car clear out at some point!) So I then had to go and run the car well for half an hour to build it up. So much for a quick trip!
- Took a couple of boxes to the donation drop off! Pleased with myself for that
- Watered plants
- Organised Monday's lunch as I'm at a concert tomorrow so won't have time when I get back

Good morning reve!
Is it possible to have spring allergy symptoms so early? I've had that dizzy head feeling a couple of times in the past week and yesterday and this morning I'm sneezing. I'm not doing anything inside that would kick up dust (since I'm not cleaning, ha ha!).
Take dog out and feed her
10 minutes on first floor
Put last of groceries, bags and cart away from last shopping trip
Water all kitchen plants

Stopping for lunch and a tv break. Today it is 46 degrees but feels like 40, so it's much milder outside.

so happy the kitties are getting along, again!dtesposito
So, hoping that your pup does not have another infection. Poor baby.
Put laundry load in washer
DH & I picked up some boxes from a friend. We thought they were moving boxes since they were from a move & she had told DH we could have all the ones from her move as they have been there for at least 6 months... so we wasted a bit of time breaking them down & loading them
into our car -- but we didn't have the heart to tell her that we didn't want them after all. She had to move out of her home for repairs & then back in. She was so happy to get rid of them as they were taking up a lot of space in her garage. She's very sweet...
I got rid of a big box that has been sitting in our dining room for a couple years, now. It had extra supplies, etc. that were for my parents. I bought in advance & brought them to the ALF they were in at the time as they needed them. Anything brought ahead of time to the ALF would go missing...
Put away 3 kleenex boxes that were in the Dining Room
Put away powder that was in the Dining Room
Gave electric razor to DH -- it was my Dads. DH wanted it...
Gave pair of DH's old reading glasses to my DH... they actually look great on him & they are the right strength for him.(Of course, he's so handsome that anything looks great on him
Put away big box of alcohol swabs -- Dad was diabetic. Put them in our front bathroom closet as we will gradually use them.
Put 2 new bras on my desk in DS's old office that I had ordered for DMom... but never even got to try them on her... due to Covid, etc. I will try them on just to get an idea if these might be a good type for me. They should be waay too small, but thought that I might be able to get an idea... these will be put in giveaway box/bag after I try them on.
Took the following to the Group Care Home for my Mom & whomever else that they might need things for:
A nice comb
2 pairs of reading glasses
Box of kleenex
About 4 bed pads
3 tubes of Diaper rash ointment/cream
4 packages of sterle wash cloths/wipes
3 bottles of hair conditioner
2 bottles of shampoo
1 bottle of body wash
2 bottles/dispensors of Cetaphil Lotions
1 bottle of Melatonin (mom doesn't need it anymore...)
1 bottle of Vit C tablets
1 box containing some of these things
1 bag containing the rest of these things
Picked up January invoice receipt from Group Home, but it has the wrong amounts on it & I need the February one, too.
Aarrgh. Wanted to submit the January one today before we disconnect and remove our scanner.

Hi Good People !
Last night, Friday, I stayed up way too late doing crossword puzzles. This morning, I emptied BR trash cans and took outside the kitchen trash with BR trash in it, and the recycling. Cleaned cat pans, made bed. After cats were fed, and me too, rinsed dishes, and did some tidying in kitchen. Spent quite a while doing checkbook reconciling. Got dressed and drove to church, not my usual one, for penance . Drove home, folded dryer clothes, and started a large load containing a jacket and other things. Packed some cat food, dry, into containers. Had already brought in Walmart order and put it away. Now on computer, doing various things. Still have to unload DW, get supper, feed kitties again, etc.
