This morning I got up and:
-ordered a home security system
-took care of my alarm system permit with the city
-made baseball plans with dad
-made lunch plans with mom
-contacted the university HR department about tracking down my retirement account with them
-ordered a few small things off Amazon (thread to finish a baby project, skinny blonde hair elastics which are impossible to find in stores, a side sleeper pillow, and a thermacare wrap)
-shared some school materials with a new colleague (which produces severe imposter syndrome)
-balanced my checking account with YNAB.

That may be enough. I think the rest of today will be crafts, chores-I-want-to-do, and either watching Castlevania or Star Trek.

But tomorrow, we HAVE to switch the closets, Precious. We HAVE to.

Yesterday, I prepped and froze some eggplant, treadmilled, then washed a little laundry, but the main feature was a late afternoon burst of activity (post-yoga---- connection?):

Finished the woven straps for a wool bag for myself (a rarity)
Made & downloaded a playlist of songs we've been discussing for a tribal BD workshop in August
Patterned and sewed the wool outer layer for a Viking hood for an SCA swap
Started on the linen inner lining for same
Finally sewed the straps on the wool bag and then the linen lining into the bag
Folded a ton of linens I'd washed, dried, and thrown on the loveseat
Hung up a bunch of clothes, I'd washed, dried, folded, and left out
Hung up some new clothes I got in a 'buy 1 get 3' sale

However, I didn't sleep well. And I jerked awake this morning to the realization that I think I left something by my car Friday (I can't be's sort of a vague recollection, and maybe it's a weird dream? IDK.) and never dealt with it.

Today, I need to unload the dishwasher, maaaaybe do some baking, pack a bag to visit my sister, do another load of laundry (mostly underthings), and go by my parents' house either before or after a bday party. I have no idea how homemakers do it.

Sometimes, you just want some carrot and celery, and a peanut almond butter low carb wrap for dinner.

I've probably not accomplished as much this week as I should have-- some trash was tossed, some straightening up was done, etc. Today, I spent two hours on the backyard, and then I boxed up some books and some VHS tapes for donation. Now, I'm about to cull my yarn stash and see what I just don't need. It's all very golden rule.

Today was also "rest day" (yardwork notwithstanding) so no yoga, dance, or treadmill. Tomorrow, I'm thinking treadmill and a dance DVD.
