housekeeping

EDITED...
...added more stuff cuz I managed to get some more stuff done, yay.
Changed the LJ Icon for it, too. Irony.

I'm proud of me today! I got quite a bit accomplished. I thought about a previous Sunday when Lisa slightly reprimanded me when I posted to Facebook about doing laundry on a "day of rest" and decided not to put post about it over there. :D Saint Zita protect me.

* changed the bed sheets
* washed/folded the old set of sheets/blankets
* washed/folded towels & reusable shopping bags
* washed/hung a load of work clothes
* washed/folded a load of regular clothes
* did three loads of dishes (I generated a lot of dishes today)
* cleaned out the pantry
* cleaned the microwave oven
* put up Monkey's soup
* organized my computer tech basket
* organized the can shelves (I have a separate bookshelf for frequently used canned goods)
* took out the recyclables & the trash
* got several of my dresses on the fancy hangers
* transferred my car's first aide kit to a more appropriate container & removed out-of-date items
* made out a shopping list
* wiped down all the kitchen appliances
* organized the spice shelves
* read three chapters (so far) of Inkheart
* prepped lunch, clothes, and stuff for tomorrow
* stripped and repainted my fingernails
* started working on purging recipe books - why is that so hard?

Usually I read a book on Sundays, but today I have not. I also usually exercise on Sundays - but I've hurt my knee somehow and am afraid to ride or DDR.

I do not know what I have done to my knee. Around 4 am this morning my knee itched, so I scratched it. THEN it started to burn and hurt. I didn't want to turn a light on and check it out for fear of waking up Monkeys. I had to keep that leg outside of the blanket because anything touching it hurt too much. After he was awake we both looked at it and it's all puffy and looked like there's a rash or something. Monkeys said if he didn't know better it looked like rug burn. I don't know if I simply scratched too hard or if my fingernails were carrying some toxin (??) or if I have a bite or something else that was exacerbated by the scratching - so twice today I've washed it with witch hazel, added neosporin and a band-aide. My plan is to keep an eye on it to see if it gets infected and periodically ask what others think of it. It burns constantly, but rug-burn would do that. I hope I'll be up to riding bike or something tomorrow, I don't like falling out of the habit of exercising, plus I like earning the extra calories. :)

I lit a candle for Joel and the Driver family today. I like candles. As they flicker they attract my attention and remind me to send up additional prayers.

Huh! Weird about you knee. Is it just in one localized spot on your knee or is it the entire knee front and back?

Monkeys thinks probably I just scratched it too hard. It's really red and looks ugly, but if you look close enough you can see what's probably four "trails" from my fingernails. I can't figure out how I could have done it that hard, that vigorously, and over such a large area! I was mostly asleep when I scratched my knee - I remember scratching it but I wasn't awake awake, you know? So I must have *really* pressed down hard when I did it. I feel like I have death talons right now.

I told Monkeys I think a snake bit me. (Remember when Artemis jumped on the bed, clawed me while I was asleep, and I thought a snake had bitten me?) Monkeys said, "Yeah, one of those snakes with claws." The most dangerous kind.

It's funny now - but I felt really defensive at the time! LOL!
