I'm still here.

I've really started the year well by writing in my diary a day behind myself or a day in front of what I did. It's like Daylight saving, I can never figure that out either.
Mother is still with us.
I haven't pushed the on button for the treadmill.
I did vac 4 square feet of the carpet but only for the newly upholstered chair.
The chair looks great but it's killing me. The cushion is heavy duty so I feel as though I'm a pimple on a pumpkin but given that I was sitting on a broken spring practically on the floor then I should stop whinging.
The cat loves the chair because it's high enough for him to see out of the window.
South East Water had to repair a water main in the street yesterday but forgot to tell us.
Today the laundry is awash because the pressure of returning water did in the hose for the washing machine.  I have washing to do and a bucket under the tap hose which I've tightened as much as possible. Wish me luck.
The BOH has just had his fourth plaster put on his arm.  The cracks were spreading but a scan showed he didn't need surgery.  Craperlink have been such a help, sending a letter on the 31st telling him to reply by the 31st which didn't arrive until January.
My sister has bought a new ritzy couch with a recliner at one end and a chaise at the other.
It's good news for me, I get her coffee table with the leadlight glass inserts and the toe breaking legs.
Mother is still with us.

I am so glad you are still with us. Hang in, and keep us posted when you find the energy and/or the inclination.

EC, I stand in the middle of the house and wonder where to start then just give up and go to Pinterest.

wrap those toe-stubbing table feet with bubble wrap now. other thing to do NOW is call for a weekly vacuum service.
That is such a no-brainer. Tell them $20 is you offer, and if they only do the Living area for that, well it's a darn good deal. They will have a 264hp Nilfisk suckmonster and the floor will feel like cottonwool afterwards.
going to Pinterest now - it's a 'thought free' zone ... "oh look this is so pretty"
