I got all my boxes unpacked today except one, which contains all my yarn. I count that as a success. My books are not sorted or properly put away, nor are my CDs, but I'm definitely one step closer, which is all to the good.
I rolled up all the money for my Shave to Save fundraiser, and meticulously copied out all the names of people who will be getting tax receipts for their donations. Tomorrow there will be a trip to the bank to deposit the money, and then another trip to the Québec Breast Cancer Foundation to give them a nice fat cheque.
I'm also going to the breakfast tomorrow hosted by Mix 96 at whatever that shopping mall is called in Pointe Claire (Fairview?), which starts stupidly early, but will force me to get an early start to my day, which is good. I have a TON of stuff to do tomorrow, including picking up and carving some jack-o'-lanterns
I did a load of laundry, and discovered that the cold water tap leaks. Gah. I tightened it as much as I could, and it still leaks. I'm going to pop over to Home Depot tomorrow (in my myriad amounts of spare time) and ask what I can do to fix this short of calling a plumber. I am all for letting the professionals do their thing, but I'm feeling a wee bit strapped for cash of late*, what with one thing and another.
I set up my second lamp, installed my mirror in the bathroom (which, strangely for Ikea, did not
come with screws and such to attach it to the wall, which was most annoying) and made spaghetti sauce, which is currently simmering on the stove. I took out all the boxes but two to the shed, and will be bringing the other two shortly. I moved my table into the dining room, even though I haven't quite decided exactly where it's going to live until such time as I get a proper dining room set (see above: strapped for cash).
I also have to put away my clean clothes, as toughlovemuse
are coming to dinner. I rather hope the spaghetti sauce will be ready by the time they get here, but toughlovemuse
has expressed an interest in heading to the Green Stop for dinner, which is also good, not expensive, and nearby.
I am really enjoying my days off at home. I'm getting stuff done and relaxing at the same time. Good stuff. :)
*I hasten to add that I am not hurting
for money in any way. I just... don't want to spend any more than I already have on things that aren't, say, food or utilities.
