This and That Thursday


I've decided I need to wear a Depends Diaper. No, I am not incontinent (not yet anyway). I just don't like to take the time to pee. I get easily distracted and figure if I don't have to stop and pee, I can complete something.

Here is my morning so far. Start to vacuum the rug in the kitchen, realize I have to pee. Turn off the vacuum, go to the bathroom in the Master Bedroom to pee. While sitting there realize I have to clean the bathroom counter. Decide I will do that after peeing. Then I realize I need more toilet paper. Go to get that out of the linen closet and realize the towels are not organized the way I want them. Organize the towels and then have to stop and remember why I am standing in the linen closet. Remember the toilet paper, get it, go back to the bathroom and put it on the TP dispenser and start to clean the sink. I figure if I am cleaning the sink, I may as well do the shower and the toilet. While scrubbing the toilet, it comes to me that I should clean the bathroom in the hall also. I get my cleaning supplies and start to head to the other bathroom when I realize the closet door in the bedroom is open. I put down the cleaning supplies, go to the closet, open the door to make sure there isn't a cat sleeping in there and then get distracted by the messy closet. I then take what I think will be a few minutes to organize the closet. One and a half hours later, I have to pee again. Back to the bathroom. I see that the bathroom is nice and clean and congratulate myself and then remember I have to clean the hall bathroom. I get my supplies, clean that bathroom and then decide I am hungry. Two and a half hours have passed since my first urge to pee. I put the cleaning supplies away and head into the kitchen only to see the vacuum cleaner waiting for me!

So now you can see why I should have an Adult Diaper!

The Baby is dating a new boy. She is very excited and from what she tells me, he sounds like a nice boy. He took her to an expensive restaurant last night and they had Sushi. She must really like him, she is a vegetarian but she ate raw fish for him! He says he wants to take her to a movie soon. He is a Senior and is pursuing the same degree she is. So far, he has not tried to kiss her. I don't know if that makes him a good boy, a nerd or gay. I am hoping for a good boy!

The weather here has cooled off. I can actually have my morning coffee on the back porch again.

The Baby will be coming home the first weekend of September. I am looking forward to it. We thought we wouldn't see her until late September.

Speaking of September, can you believe it is almost here? I am excited though since Big and I will be spending a week in D.C. I can't wait!

Big's Mom is doing Ok. She is eating more and feeling stronger. She has a couple of tests and some Doctor appointments next week. Still no idea what was wrong with her.

My Mom will be heading to England in less than a week. She will stay with my cousin Helga for 10 days. My cousin says she has good days and bad days. I think she is beginning to have more bad days. My heart breaks for her.

Well, I have written enough. I can't remember what I am supposed to be going to do, but I am sure it is something important! Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Pin It Now!

Wow, I thought I was the only one who cleans in a disorganized distracted frenzy...haha! I always feel like I've walked a thousand miles back and forth picking this and that up and returning it to it's proper place...usually the same room over and over again :D

My kiddo is 4 yo....like that car commercial where the Dad hands a little girl his car keys...she'll be "dating" in the blink of an eye...oi!

My best to you and the Family,
Cameron

I'm sorry Helga isn't improving but I'm sure she will really enjoy your Mums visit.

I don't get distracted in quite the same way as you but I am all over the place at the moment. I can't focus on one task for more than 5 minutes.

take care

This is what I call "futile cleaning", meaning you spend all day at it and still your house looks like you haven't accomplished a lot! Now I try to stay only in one room at a time. Everything that needs to go somewhere else gets placed at the EDGE of the room I'm working on, to avoid the futile cleaning process...

Glad The Baby is having some happy times.

Have a great time in DC! Lots to do there.

Trish said...

LOL!!! You just described me!!! I do try to stay on task, so that I can finish the cleaning and get to something more enjoyable....

When I was younger, I would clean and whenever I came across something that went to another room, I'd take it. And, I'd end up cleaning that room and so on and so on until the whole house was clean except the room I started in. Now, I take a container and if it doesn't belong in the room I'm in, I contain it until I can get to the other room. I actually can get things done now. Glad Big's Mom is doing better. Oh, and yes. That sofa does have wood trim on the back. I'll try to post the pics of the last reupholstery soon. Lane

LOL! I'm with you. I could also get a lot more done. Let me know if they work!

I had to chuckle as I read your cleaning--and peeing--adventure. I read a story to my granddaughter called, "If You "Give a Pig a Pancake..." and I think you would identify with it. :)

Marg said...

I too have that problem, getting sidetracked during cleaning, but I sure don't want to have to wear Depends until absolutely necessary.
Sorry to hear bout Helga, but at least your mum will e able to spend some time with her and that should raise her spirits.
Yay for The Baby, fingers crossed that he is a good boy.

Welcome to my world...re many trips to the bathroom my cardiologist asked me if was getting any exercise...I had to say yes I do the number of times I walk from one end of the house to the other to get to the bathroom I do get my exercise...I am like you...with the cleaning as well...except my brain doesn't get back to remembering where I was supposed to be.

Your post gave me a good belly laugh for the day.

I started dinner at 4:00 today, hoping to get it o the table by 5:30. It is now 7:00 pm and it still has a few more minutes in the oven because I kept getting distracted. That reminds me, I need to pee.

Michelle said...

LOL! Well, you did get A LOT done--just not what you'd planned.

I avoid cleaning wherever I can.I'm just saying you might like to try that.

However I pissed myself reading this post because it was so darn funny so maybe I need Depends after all...

P.S. Using pissed in this context in Australia isnt considered swearing or vulgar...

You seem to have ADD cleaning habits like me! Have fun on your trip to DC!
