The Mud Bath .... and the Pantry

September 8th, 2015 at 04:33 pm

We had a good bit of rain this past weekend which helped to cool things down (Saturday during the university game it was in the high 90s ..)

So .. this morning I decided to walk to work. A nice cool mid-60s, with an afternoon temp in the low 80s. Perfect.

The one thing I didn't think about was the mud on the sidewalks.

Can you guess where I'm going with this?

Yes, in my work clothing walking along trudging through sections of sidewalk covered in mud. (Wearing tennies, not heels.)

Almost slipped two different times, but managed to catch myself. Until the third time I slipped.

Ouch! Now I have a load of laundry going that definitely WAS NOT planned for tonight.

Once I got home I took everything out of my pantry and my closet (where I'd been stashing some of my recent purchases) and reorganized it. 6 bags of cat food, 30 cans of canned cat food, 4 rolls of paper towels, 6 boxes of snack type bars, 6 boxes of cereal, etc., etc.

When the laundry is done I AM going to put it away right away.

Then the rest of the evening is mine. Smile

If you're a praying sort, my brother did something this past weekend which could have pretty negative consequences. He'll be finding out for sure October 9 what the consequences will be. My hope is that he will learn what he needs to from this so that it doesn't repeat and he can make some tough decisions.
