I went out and bought new air freshener plug in thingys a few months back. I think I have had to buy refills twice now. They have a dial on them that controls the amount of scent that comes out, and each of the four of them are turned on #1, the lowest. Every time the bottles have to be replaced, the smell in this house is so overwhelming to me, I want to throw up. But only for the first few days. After that, I love them....the smell of apples and cinnamon is wonderful and light. But right now....ugh.
I heard a cat barfing in the night, a SERIOUS amount of barfing from the sound of it, I got up and looked for the kitty and the mess, couldn't find either, I debated on calling H, who sleeps upstairs in the bedroom while I sleep down on the couch....I didn't want him to walk out of the bedroom and into the..well you know. But I can't get up those stairs without help and I didn't think it would be beneficial to call and wake him to warn him that there MIGHT be a surprise outside the door in the morning....although the neatfreak in me isn't crazy about unattended cat puke somewhere in my house.
And while we are on the subject, I am damned tired of sleeping on the couch, I sure as hell hope I can navigate those stairs soon, and I know that H will be happy if I could on many levels, one being that he is tired of sleeping alone. This house is so big and those stairs are so damned long, winding, and tall that it seems impossible that I will ever be running up and down them any time soon. But it really wasn't very long ago that I was.
I am working from home today, I can make much better progress here---no interruptions, and I don't have to wear my arms out with the chair, yesterday, by the time I got home, I couldn't hold my pen, my arms and hands were too tired. Yes, I know there are electric wheelchairs and scooters, but I have one week to go and I am waiting to see what I need after the surgery.
Political ads, political phone surveys, blech. I live in Iowa. Caucasus coming up. Bullshit, bullshit. I am, and always have been very political minded. I vote, I care, no matter what, and I always have a pretty good idea of what/who/when I want. This election? Complete three-ring circus. I have no clue who, what or especially why. I personally think all the choices are crap. I'm sorry if I step on toes with that statement, but what I'm seeing is pretty pathetic. Perhaps I have always been way to idealistic in the past, but this election, all I can see is politics. No real feelings from any of them, just a way to further their own, and I have a duty to figure it out. I still have time, but good heavens, it's already getting old.
