I am trying mightily to get a handle on "days of the week." This, I think, will be quite helpful in managing the coming work schedule. Thankfully, I have the Wednesday Night Bullet Post to give me some guidance. I always know when it's midweek. And, if it isn't Wednesday, it might be a good idea to not tell me that.
*I didn't work out this morning.
*I think the mean Wii Fit Lady is mad at me.
*Maybe she heard all the stuff I've said about her. I didn't think so, but...
*She sent in an different trainer to do the single leg extensions with me the other day.
*I don't know what's creepier.
*The fact that I think she is mad at me.
*Or how Wii Fit can bring in a substitute like that...
*I didn't knit today.
*Still kind of mad at the scarf for being all "difficult."
*Plus, I had a "salsa situation" going on.
*I made salsa a while back and liked it.
*Makes it easy to forget how messy things can get when canning salsa.
*You seriously have no idea how much of a train wreck I create in the kitchen with this operation.
*I know what you're thinking. I can practically hear you.
*Oh, Sheepie I have (children/small dogs/a tribe of wild trolls living in my basement/any other mess-makers you might want to insert here). I think I know what a mess is.
*You don't. Plus you have wild trolls in your basement and have yet to call an exterminator. You are untrustworthy, IMHO.
*I canned three pints of salsa, though. And had an extra pint to throw in the fridge for this weekend.
*Then I spent an hour and a half cleaning the kitchen.
*I got tired. Salsa making is exhausting.
*Plus you have to track down every little hot pepper seed that flew into the stratosphere so that none of the cats find it.
*Speaking of cats, can someone please explain to me why the Very Complicated Kitty feels the need to lick things?
*I'm not talking about the sorts of things you'd expect a cat to lick. I mean other stuff.
*Like the window screens.
*And the living room carpet.
*Today I found him licking the sofa cushions.
*Questioning whether or not he is getting too high a dose of his happy pills...
*He looks pretty happy while he's licking stuff around the house. Blissful, in fact.
*Now I'm thinking I should go back to the kitchen and reexamine for salsa spatter.
*The VCK might be cured of his licking fetish, but I don't think I want to explain this to the vet.
*Cat with burned tongue and dragon breath compete with actual fire.
*Could be awkward.
Yeah. I should get on that. I suppose it's time to call this edition of the WNBP a wrap. If nothing else, I ate a goodly amount of salsa today and probably should have some ice cream to balance things out. Happy Wednesday and may your kitchen be spatter free!
