Whatta Weekend

Saturday: Got loads done – moved a bookcase, recycled a ton of stuff, cleared out dozens of books to donate or take to the office for our library. Got a ZipCar twice – first time, went to Bed Bath and Beyond to get bathroom hardware and some new dinner and drink ware. Didn’t have time for Petco, so got the ZipCar again in the evening to get new litter boxes and kitty food. Once home, set up the boxes (they’re covered and the kitties weren’t sure about them at first – too much like going into a pet carrier!) and took a bunch more recycling down to the basement. Sprinkled in, I caught up with the Trackside podcast, followed the IndyCar race on the radio network and listened to a terrific Giants’ victory over the Dodgers. Whew!

Sunday: Lots to do and here’s what’s happened so far:

  • Speed-watched over 20 hours of Olympic competition (fast forwarded unless men in spandex were on!) with the opening ceremonies still waiting – gonna watch those in full
  • Washed the kitties’ water fountain
  • Washed, folded and put away 8 loads of laundry while rolling the TV broadcast of last night’s IndyCar race
  • Washed dishes
  • Scrubbed kitchen – ceiling, walls, woodwork and cabinets
  • Spackled the dents and nail holes in kitchen walls
  • Painted kitchen ceiling and walls
  • Caught the wreck and last 8 laps of NASCAR at the Glen
  • Heard another AWESOME Giants come-from-behind win over the Dodgers

Cabinets and woodwork tomorrow night and the kitchen’s DONE! 🙂
