Messing around a bit. Mark was kind enough to tell me that HaloScan had added code for Thingamablog, so I grabbed that – so all the posts below this one are going to look a little weird in the comments section. But on the other hand, no more hand-pasting and keeping up with the date, etc, etc.
Am on the look out for new skins, too, so if anybody knows where I can peruse any nice-looking, free skins, let me know! I like this particular template, but it’s going to get old really quickly; I can already tell.
I didn’t do a whole lot on Friday, but we did find a shoe store that is moving its location (from a shopping center to our largest mall). I bought a $90 pair of New Balance walkers for $34! Go Me! I went in looking for a new pair of loafers, as I’ve needed a new pair for a while now – I lost weight, so my $40 pair of Candies that I bought three years ago when my grandmother died just don’t fit me anymore. :( Preston found the pile of New Balance while I was head-deep in Hush Puppies. :D
I got a lot of work done on the house this weekend. Let’s see …
Saturday, I deep-cleaned the office, including vacuum-brushing the base-boards; I’ve still not brought the ceiling fan cleaner up to clean dust and cobwebs from behind the desk, though, and I’ve got to remember to do that. It’s not so bad back there, but with the rest of the room clean, I feel like there’s a dirty spot lurking! I even vacuumed my desk chair and Grey Lady’s bed, all the miscellaneous plush animals I have around, and the books – well, not all of the books, just the ones on the bookshelf (the rest of them in the closet where it doesn’t get dusty).
Must remember to buy some canned air and spray out the pc tower …
Then, I cleaned the bathroom top to bottom (I love Clorox Teflon bathroom cleansers!! They make life sooo much saner!) Vacuumed the hall and stairs, then the bedroom. I didn’t do the bedroom baseboards, though, and I probably should have, but I did the ones in the closet – that closet got cleaned out really well. Well, the floor did; I did the shelves, etc, back in December (January?)
After cooking a roast most of the day followed by a scrumptious peach cobbler, and given that it’s not been done in ages, I ran the oven self-cleaner Saturday evening and scrubbed the racks with an SOS pad. So, yesterday, I cleaned out the oven and releveled the stove – yeah, Preston said I wasn’t ever cleaning out another oven after I hurt my back in late January, but he said yesterday that his knees hurt too badly too stand on them to do the job. :eye rollage: I got the bottom shelf of the long cabinet over the washer and dryer cleaned and repapered. I washed down the cabinet doors, that wall, and got my china teacups up on hangers.
I found the nicest cup hangers at Garden Ridge Friday – before I found them, I was going to spend the 60 cents on a package of the screw-in type. But these are slides; you just slide them onto the shelf you want the cups to hang from; they come in a package of two, which hangs six cups. I’m going to go back and get another package and also look to see if they have such an animal for wine glasses – maybe if they don’t Lowe’s or Home Depot do?
Let’s see … Oh, I got three loads of laundry done and put away, as well, and got the new cloth shower curtain hung that my mom brought the other day. She spent $30 for it at JC Penney, hated it, and gave it to me. Works for me. Looks like she bought it specifically for our bathroom!
I think that’s everything. ROFL Have a great Monday!
