TML, I hope you found something good to eat for lunch.
Oust, you don't have heat on, and your apartment is 70 degrees? That's amazing, maybe the apartments around you have their heat set up high.
I stopped for lunch and a tv break, but from now on I have to have reading breaks instead of tv breaks--I have several new library books to read. I have about 45 minutes until my phone call, I'm going to spend it PEEPing, I'm getting close to having most rooms decluttered at the same time!

I got so much done the last two days! Deadlines, help, and most of all, ADHD medication made this possible. My room has been decluttered, cleaned, and I moved all the furniture around. It is so much more open and the pretty jewelry displays shine. It felt so good to wake up to this!
I have inspired myself, DVD and Lady D. I hope that we can increase the pace so that we can get LD into her own room. Today I want to work on the toiletries which are stashed in nine different places!

Hi friends, hope your weekends are going well!
Back home now
PUPA of every room we used
Set up the automatic plant-watering spikes I ordered last night. Her plants were looking the worse for wear, so I decided to take some action about that.
Annoyingly, I'd kept all of our rubbish in one plastic bag, which it seems boyfriend forgot to pick up and bring home with us. It did include odd bits of leftover salad too...And I'm not sure of when my next trip over is going to be! Oh dear, for all that, as Diane said yesterday, it's good that I'm in cleaning mode, that's going to be stinky before long! I can't go over and sort it this coming week as I'm going to be hugely busy. The week after I may have a couple of free days thankfully so could maybe run over then (it's about an hour each way).
Load of laundry
PUPA around the kitchen sink - putting recycling away, putting oven trays away, etc.
Cut up and recycled cold packs
Achieved dining table zero
Laundry from machine to dryer
Take new shower product upstairs, and ideally try it out

I hope you can get a wheelchair soon. I keep thinking I have an extra one. We have gotten 1 or 2 on Next Door before. There are organizations that often have them. Churches/synogogues often can help. Some folks on Next Door are so nice, they might even bring it to you.

Good morning cando! I assume you have no workers at your house today, are you able to get in there and do anything? Or are you still staying elsewhere?
Reve, if you closed the garbage bag at your mom's house you might be surprised that it doesn't smell that much. Assuming the food items you put in there aren't especially stinky ones!
The dog did not have to go out last night, but I still woke up several times and once couldn't fall back for half an hour. It wasn't too bad though, the first session of sleep was several hours in a row.
The high today will be close to 50, so it's really starting to feel like spring planting weather even though we're far away from that. It makes me want to start my indoor seeds but I'm going to wait until March 1st for the earliest ones, the worst thing is having a plant you nurtured from seed die because the roots are growing too fast and it's too early to put it outside. There are so many plants I would like to start and I have to remind myself that when they start they are in little tiny pots and I can fit many of them under my 2 lights--but as they grow they have to go into larger pots and then suddenly there is no room to give them adequate light. I really want to start some of the flowering ones early enough so they bloom early for the first bees, but not so early that they outgrow their larger pots.
Today I have to concentrate on my houseplants, because I'm behind on their care again.
I hope everyone has a good Sunday!

In hotel… so far we like the one we’re in. Makes life nicer!
DH left earlier than me to meet the plumbers at our house. The floor tile guys removed the toilet but they don’t re-install. They took the old one, which needs replacing, to the back of our house near the trash cans. DH had already bought a new one about a week ago, since we knew we’d be replacing it once the flooring was put in.
I took Dog & we went to visit my Mom. It was a good visit. She was having a good morning & Dog is very good. She is very scared so she’s not the best therapy dog. For example, Mom asked her name & called her over to her. Dog went to her, but did not touch her outstretched hand & I forgot to bring treats. So, since Dog did not touch her hand, Mom thought she just wouldn’t come to her. I did pick her up at one point & partly had her on moms lap. But she’s a little heavy for me.
Still Dog, did bring Mom some extra smiles. Just seeing her made Mom smile & she tried several different times with the outstretched hand & each time Dog would go to her but didn’t touch her hand.

looks like we posted at the same time.
So, after Moms yesterday, we brought back lunch for us & plumbers should have been gone. But took them little longer & they were still packing up to leave when I got there & asked us to check it out. After a few flushes, I did one more flush after everyone was walking down the hallway & noticed it was leaking.
They finally figured out after some time that the new toilet they had installed was defective! Had a couple pin holes & a crack on the side at the bottom that DH doesn’t understand why they didn’t notice before completely installing. I’m sure they just assumed a new toilet would be fine. However that crack was pretty visible.
Anyway, plumbers were very nice & didn’t have another job scheduled for afterwards so they & DH went to Lowes to exchange it. Got back & noticed the 2nd one was defective too. I’m not sure if they had already installed that one, or noticed while installing it.
So they & DH took it back. While they were gone, I went to get lunch of their choice for them— Whataburger. Unfortunately, they were incredibly busy & short-handed as I found out later several employees didn’t show up.
It took forever !! Over 20 minutes after I finally ordered—got their meals. I gave the lady who had taken my order a ride to where she was going to Walmart that she was going to walk to, but her legs/feet were hurting too much so she had come back in to call an Uber. It was on my way home, and she had been working since 7am waiting for employees that were supposed to have come in much earlier. She was a lady about my same age, I think. A long shift for her on her feet the whole time. It was about 3:30pm when I took her.
Anyway, the plumbers & DH had to go to Home Depot this time to get another toilet. This one was the same kind but the workmanship on their batch was so much better! You could easily see the difference in the porcelain.
Finally, we have the new toilet installed & working.
I quickly made some chocolate chip cookies. The kind you just break off & bake. So we all had a delicious dessert & it made tge the house smell so good!
I worked on DS’s old room’s closet floor next. DH & I had a big argument & I left for a little while.
Came back & we made up with each other & got to work, again.
Anyway, finished that closet floor& got started on the Junk Room/guest room/office.
Then back to the hotel.
That was yesterday.

Cando, what an ordeal with the toilets--good thing you test flushed one more time or you would have had a mess and the plumbers would have had to come back! I hope you can get some rest today?

Boiled water and steeped tea
Handwashed all of the dishes - this took a LONG time.

Wiped off all the counters and stovetop
Gathered up dirty clothes
Put toilet paper in all of the bathrooms
Box out for recycling
Not making to dos. Will just keep adding to my “done” list today. I still get so hot and sweaty and shaky when I try to do anything for more than five minutes. Whatever illness I had for the last week and a half really took a toll on me.
