This weekend I was even able to take stairs two at a time, and do a few niggling chores, like redoing the screws in our bedroom door hinge, and hanging a plant basket for Mrs. Ha.
Of course, I didn't have long and big enough screws to get past the worn screwholes (#12x3 worked), so we went to Home Depot (quickly, because our first choice breakfast place had a closed party playing acoustic music that we weren't invited too, and the second choice place had a new cook so it took 45 minutes to get our food, really wasting Sunday afternoon) to get them, and use up my gift card. While there we also bought an underbed rubbermaid storage container for Mrs. Ha's shoes, and an advanced seeding system from Burpee, along with some basil, tomato and pepper seeds. Dang, I'm feeling good enough to garden.
Boy, Mrs. Ha has an abooey full of shoes, at least. She's been complaining that her shoes are disorganized, making her late when she hunts through her closet looking for suitable ones. Last night Mrs. Ha started folding laundry and fiveyear old and I did her shoes. I started rummaging through the pile on the closet floor to match up pairs, then five year old would show the pair to Mrs. Ha, for the destination of:
keep out because she frequently wears them
Two garbage bags and a underbed bin later, we made a big dent, but there's plenty more.
Anyhow, our tax refunds came in, the same day Mrs. Ha got her first check and I got paid. Saturday we went out to buy spring coats for the girls (technically it's spring, despite the snow outside), and then we got a new cat that Mrs. Ha has had her eye on. He's a traumatized male (even before we got him home and the dog nearly got him, 65 lbs of tail wagging barking is a lot to handle) who is taking a while to warm up to us. I'm sure it didn't help when I tried to remove him from a cat house in our living room, with leather jacket and MC gloves (it's nice to know kitten teeth can't penetrate them), I ended up moving the whole 6 foot tall house up in to ten year old's bedroom, which has been fenced off so the cat can get used to us.
Now that we're solvent, it's tempting to blow some of my hard borrowed cash on frivolous things, though it's nearly as much fun just to googleshop and not buy anything. What silly want should I buy?
