  • Slowing to a Crawl…

    2011 - 08.09

    Progress in the tidying has slowed to a crawl.  Yesterday, there was the unexpected visitor, then I went to Brentwood for lunch and met with my mom and aunt, then shortly thereafter with grandma.  While wondering with them I got a call looking for some help moving a couch.  So I left Brentwood and headed to Walter’s place.  It was a heavy leather Ektorp 3 seater.  We carried it around the back way, but had to stop 3-4 times because of the uneven weight distribution while carrying (we carried it on it’s back most of the way, which mean that one side was way heavier than the other).  While we were resting in the apartment Jeff called and Walter convinced us that we should go for Happy Hour.  So I returned home and showered, and then walked to Browns Social House to meet them for happy hour.

    I was a little surprised to find them sitting with two ladies when I arrived, but it turns out that they were co-workers of Walter, and it wasn’t that they had managed to both bring/find dates before I got there (which would have been bad form since my date is current out of province).  Sitting around on the patio getting a little too much sun and chatting for a few hours.  We then picked up some Panago pizza and some drinks from Save-On and returned to Walter’s place.  We got a meatball pizza on multigrain thin crust, it was interesting, not bad, but I wouldn’t order it again.

    Due to all of these compounding circumstances I didn’t get home again until after 9pm… which is a long way of saying that I didn’t get much of anything done in relation to the tidying.

    For the past few days I’ve been dealing with a sore throat, and unfortunately when I woke up this morning my nose was also stuffed up.  I had been pretending up until that point that it might have been dust, or cleaning supplies which had been causing the sore throat, but no such luck.  So today also has seen less than amazing progress.

    Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day, we’ll see.

      If you tire of tidying at your place, you could come tidy here:-) Hope you feel better soon though. You’re not allowed to give it to K when she gets back.

        It is the one plus of her being out of town, that I can’t get her sick while she’s not here. I hope to have kicked it by the time she is back.
