    I gave up trying to get much done after Tuesday last week. I was a little under the weather and my car was fritzing all over the place. Hopefully taking it to get fixed tomorrow. Did a lot of family time from Wednesday on. Spent Friday at my MIL helping her clean out 2 rooms and prepping for a garage sale. The garage sale was all day Saturday. She got rid of 75% of the stuff she had out and made a little money. She was/is happy. Sunday and yesterday morning I could barely get out of bed. The lower half of my body felt like someone took a baseball bat and beat the stuffing out of me. Better today, but still really sore. Saturday was quite brisk and I don't know if it was an arthritis flare, a virus (several are going around the family) or just that I am that out-of-shape. Since yesterday was the start of my week, here is what was accomplished that I can remember:
    1. last week's finances
    2. caught up on emails
    3. took recycling from kitchen/family room/laundry room to bins
    4. unloaded dishwasher
    5. reloaded dishwasher and ran
    6. picked up and straightened kitchen/family room
    7. took out master bath trash
    8. called df to cancel yesterday's lunch and to talk
    9. called another df to confirm Wednesday's lunch
    10. washed and dried a load of clothes
    11. met youngest dd at dr appointment
    12. went to grocery store and picked up half-a-dozen items (don't normally go there and now I remember why)
    That's all I can remember. . . . .

    My goal for the next few days is to get our lives back to normal.

    Have had a wonderful time with my BF from 42 years ago - a real vacation from all of us. They just left five minutes ago - I'm getting a massage in 20 minutes, then I'm going to see what happens - may go to the pool to get back to my exercising - weather has been really too cold and windy!!

    Shall be back to post my list later!!

    Debbie Cat, I have no way to take photos. Besides, I didn't like this one anyway.

    7. Finished gardening shopping
    8. Repotted most of the plants
    9. Cleaned up the repotting mess (should count for a bunch!)
    10. Eye exam and bought glasses
    11. Mopped bathroom several times: see stupid story below

    I woke up yesterday morning to a huge puddle in the bathroom, and water dripping fast through the light fixture. I called, maintenance checked the apt upstairs, and told me it was fixed. When I got back late yesterday afternoon, after everyone was gone, I found it wasn't fixed. Mopped again. This morning, another big puddle had collected, mopped again. Maintenance tried again and traced the problem farther back - the water heater up there was leaking. They replaced it today, so I have a dry bathroom, but no light. They asked me to let it dry out until tomorrow.

    So for a day and a half, I had to take an umbrella every time I went to the bathroom. The leak was directly over the toilet. It ceased to be funny after a while!
