Weekend at Home

Mellow weekend here, stayed home, walked around our neighborhood and got rid of a LOT of stuff laying around. I don't know about you, but I have trouble staying on top of the sheer amount of papers that come in the mail. I have a shredder and try to get rid of it on a daily basis but geeze, it gets out of control fast! I no longer get too many catalogs at home because they just get recycled, but it's the other stuff that comes in envelopes that has to be opened, credit card offers, magazine offers, car warranty offers, just a lot of crap if you ask me. Now that I am up to date and cleaned out, I am going to call each company that I get something from and kindly ask them to stop.

Saturday, I vacuumed everything that could be vacuumed around the house - crown molding, walls, mattress, carpet, wood floor, new rug, you name it, it was vacuumed. Poor BayLee hid most of the day. My allergies were kept at bay by wearing a mask the entire time, I swear I am going to invest in a good one, the one I have cuts into my face. Most of you know, I am allergic to a lot of things and all of those get stirred up when I move things around at home no matter how long it has been since the last time I vacuumed. We laid the new rug down Saturday night and love it! BayLee finally came out of hiding right before it was time for bed, so we gave him some playtime and put toys on him. He kept that mouse on his head for over 5 minutes, he just sat there looking stoic.
Sunday, slept in until about 8 and then did a couple loads of wash in my hand cranked washer - workout for my arm, loaded it into the spinner and hung it outside to dry. As much as I love my eco-wash system here, I would love a washer and dryer one day but will have to move to get it since we don't have hook ups here although, I have found a portable one that connects to the kitchen sink (like the old dishwashers) that I am thinking about. I just hate the laundry mat, there is no parking, it is always crowded and kind of grosses me out however, it's the only place I can do my bedding and bath stuff. The Babe and I went for a walk on the main shopping street in our neighborhood, got some bagels, cat litter and some other stuff we needed. It was super sunny and warm today, so nice for a change here in the city. We came home, made lunch and I took a 2 hour nap on the couch.
What a nice weekend it was. We didn't use the car (I even forgot where I parked it Friday afternoon after work, ha ha!) and walked to get our errands done, I love it.
Life is good.

Remember when George was a hand model on Seinfeld? What about when Joey on Friends found his "hand twin"?
"This hand is your hand, this hand is my hand, oh wait thats your hand, oh no, it's my hand."
So funny!

I'm cracking up right now because I always sing the "This hand is your hand (no wait that's my hand)" song to Kenny and he just rolls his eyes. Man, I feel sorry for our husbands for having to put up with our shenanigans sometimes!
