The List for This Evening....

Victoria And Abdul: The True Story Of The Queens' Closest Confidant - Shrabani Basu What a Fish Knows: The Inner Lives of Our Underwater Cousins - Jonathan Balcombe

Give me a hero biscuit, I did housework last night!  It's the first time I've given a crap about such things since I got home from Taiwan, sick & exhausted!  But, my neatnik sister is coming to visit, so I must try to scrape up some motivation from somewhere.

 

Tonight I need to:

1. Clean out the fridge

2. Do the organics recycling

3. If I was really good, I'd empty the regular recycling too

4. Empty the dishwasher

5. Wash the stuff that didn't make it in the dishwasher

6. See if I have time to finish the two books above.

 

That sounds manageable to me right now, but after work all bets are off.  (We're training for a new computer system and getting ready to move to a new office miles away from the current one right now).

 

Books are currently my retreat from real life and boy do I appreciate them.
