Where does the time go?

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Thu Nov 16, 2006 5:27 am

The week just started and it's already more than half finished. I had planned to have my house all cleaned by now. What I have is a big mess? More so than when I started. We have shelves and bears everywhere and I seldom dust them. But, I figured if company was coming for Thanksgiving I should at least attempt to get the house cleaned. I have two of the three large shelves cleaned but still have the one with all the little bears on it to do. DR decided as long as the shelves were cleaned he'd bring the can collection back and pack something else in boxes. We couldn't eat supper at the table tonight because we couldn't find the table. Guess what I will do tomorrow? Today, we went up the hill and had breakfast at the I-HOP. They have good whole grain pancakes. Fry's had potatoes on sale. 99 Cents for 10 lbs. So, I bought two bags. DR bought two bags. I can store them in a tub in the small room. It isn't heated. We stopped at Albertson's and guess what they had on sale for 97 cents for 10 lbs. We bought four more bags. Now, we have 80 lbs of potatoes. That should last us until summer. Well, maybe. Last year we bought 100 lbs. Without the boys here to help eat them, they last a long time. But, baked potatoes are good and it helps heat the house in winter.
We stopped at the auto parts store to look at tonneau covers for the truck. DR has been looking at them and there was one on sale that he wanted to look at. They had one made for our truck. They said it was the one on sale but when we got it home, it wasn't like the one in the ad. It looks to be a better one so maybe they ran out and were substituting or maybe they made a mistake but it is now residing on the back of our truck.
We stopped at the flooring store. Last week we stopped and found out we could get flooring for our kitchen for 69 cents a square foot. Crazy Nate's is the place. So, the guy quoted us a price for our 8 ft by 10 foot which is what we need. But, when we went to get it, the guy wasn't there. A woman was there and she told us we couldn't buy a piece 8 x 10 because it came in 12 foot lengths. But, that's not what the man told us so DR said "let's go." We started to leave and the woman told us we wouldn't find it any cheaper anywhere else. I told her that might be but we might find somewhere with more honest people. Where one person tells you one thing and then someone else tells you something different when you go to get it.We will go on Friday to look somewhere else. There are lots of flooring places in the phone book. It's just that we wanted it down before Thanksgiving.
It has been crazy at work. The library was closed on Friday for Veteran's Day. It was open Saturday but I think people expected it to be closed because it wasn't that busy except for the bookdrop box was over flowing both times. I did have things all put on the shelves by the end of the day. But, people that didn't come on Saturday came on Monday and I didn't get everything put away. I didn't get finished on Tuesday either. Today, all of the librarians and "bosses" were at a library conference so there was a shortage of staff so the day people didn't get a lot done, except the lady cataloging books. So, there were lots and lots of books to put on the shelves. But, our volunteer was sick so there was a shortage on the evening crew also. I had to be at the checkout desk for the first hour and a half so there was no way I could get everything shelved. So, there will be a lot to do when I go in tomorrow. But, being busy makes the time go faster. It never drags along with nothing to do. I do stop for a break about halfway through the evening. The library director calls me his Whirling Dervish Shelver. We stopped at the grocery store after work and bought a turkey and a lot of other stuff too. Now, at least we will have turkey and potatoes for Thanksgiving and sweet potatoes and cranberries and vegetables and pumpkin pie and whatever else will fit on the table.DR just put Chance to bed so maybe it's time for me to head that direction too.

Dooley I don't know where you find all the energy from!!! I loved the bit where you said you couldn't find the table - I've been there too when clearing up!!!

Good grief, Dooley, you have outdone yourself in the hard work department. And now you are going to cook on top of all that. Vegans don't do thanksgiving. I'm glad.
