On Winning the Battle of the Housework:

I am catching up on things around here. I think that the stuff breeds while I’m not looking and they party and import others when I’m sick.

The piles of laundry and dishes were ominous. The amount of dust bunnies made me long to get my hands on some spinning fiber again.

Mountain Man did run the vacuum while I was sick. I heard it daily, sometimes multiple times a day. But apparently it was a main thoroughfare thing. And all the dust bunnies had fun congregating under the tables and chairs.

To add to my fun was the fact that Lady Short, the dog, is not doing well as she gets closer to the end. She does not always make it outside before she does her business on the floor. So I had to stop what I was doing to clean that up too.

But the sheets are changed. The house is almost back to rights. I only have the piles of folded laundry I collected from the clothes lines in the family room this morning to put away.

Today I plan to do some rewrites of a story for the Thrill or Shiver blog. I may even get to play some video games again. I’ll listen to some music that is not designed to keep me moving. And I’ll sit with a cup of tea and some knitting.

If you'd really like some spinning fiber I can definitely scare some up for you.. do you have a wheel or a spindle?
I find that because I can't stand for long periods of time that I dishes take FOREVER to catch up on. Laundry is limited to 1 load because of hanging space - something I'm seriously thinking of fixing come this summer.
