The thing about cleaning and purging is that once you get started, you find a million more things to do; and I am almost overwhelmed by the amount of crap Jasmine and I have managed to let pile up.
Our basement is horrendous and we have two garages full of stuff that has to be sorted and sold or donated. It’s daunting, but I guess now is as good a time as any to get started on everything.
How’s everyone doing? Since I have asthma and just had bronchitis, I am being very careful and am of course staying in. Thankfully my mom is off work with pay now, so she is now staying in too, and she has been out walking every day. My dad is still working, because he’s an instrumentation tech and people still need their heavy-duty machines calibrated and repaired. He’s taking extra precautions, though, and is generally as healthy as a horse.
This morning I’m just relaxing with some coffee and watching the kittens fight, and trying to shake off the gray day. I’ll be so glad when the weather is finally warm and dry and sunny. Waking up to these cloud-muck skies is just depressing.
I am in what seems to be a never-ending war with my shrink about getting my prescriptions refilled on time, and it’s exhausting. He’s a really good doctor, but he’s got about a thousand too many clients and it seems like I’m always harassing his nurses to get him to call in refills. Antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds don’t work if you take a week off here and there, so that’s been a struggle. I’m hoping that he will get it together this week and get me mah drugs.
In other news, Loki the kitten is bad, bad, bad and wants to be On the Table! or On the Dresser! or On Top of the TV! or Flying Through the Air! and he’s truly enough to push the tenuous level of my sanity towards the breaking point. I keep constantly offering him toys in hopes of satisfying his need to be aloft, but he’d much rather beat up his sister Thor or jump up on the desk to sullenly eat my plant. I think he drinks coffee or possibly rocket fuel when I’m not looking.
So cute, but so bad. I tried to get a better picture, but he’s always moving.
Here’s hoping you all are safe and being careful.
