Tuesday Miscellany

* I haven't been blogging. I haven't even been reading blogs. I've been painting this room. I am so excited to finish this project!

* However, I have a cold. I worked through my cold for the first three days, but today I can't bring myself to lift a paintbrush. My people will be lucky to get supper, which will be General Tso's chicken. Or nothing, if I lose enthusiasm for cooking supper.

* My kids started back at their performing arts co-op today. Laurel is taking dance and drama, and Duncan is taking a class called creative worship, in which they use flags/banners. I am very happy for them that they got to start back today, but I really just wanted to curl up on the couch under many blankets and sleep.

* I do, however, have to go back out again on this drizzly, gray day. We have a leadership meeting for our homeschooling support group. I'm in the last six months of my latest 3-year stint on the council, and I'm ready for a break. A really long, long break. When I started on the council for the first time 9 years ago, we had about 90 families as members. We now serve 230 families. I find that spectacular.

* Did I mention that my cat peed on the couch last week? Seriously. How absurd is that?

* That is the extent of what's going on in my head today. You can see why I haven't blogged since Friday. The end.


  1. What a great room! Can't wait to see it finished.
    Hope you recover from your cold soon!

  2. You need some of Marie Hathaway's Homemade Cold Remedy (a respected elderly from my church). Let's just say 10 cough drops and some STRONG liqueur are involved... :0)

  3. Uggh. We've had cold rainy weather here forever. A cold on top of that really stinks. :( Hope you feel better.

  4. I love it. Blogging and reading blogs hasn't been on my hot list for a while either. Expecting to get back to it soon. I hope. Looking forward to pics of the finished room.

  5. Cat pee? Seriously, that bratty cat of ours did the same thing to our couch a few months ago. I tried everything and spent way too much money trying to get rid of the odor.

    My mom finally told me her magic recipe: 16 oz. 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, 3 TBSP Baking Soda, a squirt of dishsoap. Mix together and soak or spray on the offending object. It is magical. I promise.

    Our couch no longer has any residual cat odors. It is all good.

    Feel better.

  6. hope you feel better and can get back to painting. Paint is an amazing transformer

  7. Pictures! Pictures! Pictures!

    PS. Hope you feel better soon.
