So much for not being lazy

But it was a restful day. I got up around 8-something and read for a while. I took a shower and got ready for church. I played my clarinet at the 11:15 mass. I came home and put in a frozen dinner for lunch. I read some more and took a nap. I was supposed to fill in the hole where my brother capped the water pipe that had sprung a leak. We had to dig a hole around it and he decided to cut it off and cap it instead of trying to unscrew it from the base where it was very rusty. Josh was supposed to help me, but by the time he got home, the hardware store was closed where I was supposed get some top soil. I filled it in with what leftover soil I could and I'll get more tomorrow. Luckily it's been very warm here so I don't think the pipes will freeze before tomorrow. It's only supposed to get down to 38 tonight and I did get the pipe covered... just need the next foot and a half or so. So the problem is fixed and I'll stop whining now. Summer is right, I do bounce back quickly. It was just a crisis for the moment and it's passed.

I brought tons of papers home to grade and I didn't even look at them. I'm going to make an effort to get up early and get to school early. I really need to get caught up before I leave on Wednesday. I have a room reserved for Wednesday night which is about 2/3 of the way to San Antonio. On Thursday and Friday, I'm staying with my friend Kirsten and I'll pay for one night at that hotel.

I'm making slow progress at the house. The kitchen is clean for the most part except for the floor. I didn't get to mop as planned on Saturday and I didn't get to it today. I did do some laundry though. I washed sheets and towels. I love it when I get into bed with newly laundered sheets. Hopefully that means I'll sleep well tonight. The living room is generally picked up but I can't keep the grass and stuff cleaned up that the dogs drag in.

Well, I'm going to finish laundry and call it an early night.

Are you ever happy? You are so negative. How about remembering how lucky you are to have a house, a job, money to pay your bills or send your kid to camp? It seems to me you are always complaining, while it seems you have a pretty good life going for you. I think you have quite a few blessings. And get up and clean your house - move - you won't feel so tired.
