Hot Fingers

I'm going to wait until tomorrow to post my TT. I'm exhausted and might as well take advantage of that to try to get my hours switched for the start of Saturday's Read-a-Thon.

Besides, I burned my fingers while making dinner tonight and two of them still feel like they are on fire. I dropped a slice of liver in the skillet from too high up and it splashed hot oil across the knuckles of the ring and little finger of my right hand I don't think it is even going to blister but it hurts like a bad sunburn.

Have you ever tried to wash dishes while keeping one hand out of the hot water? I would have waited until tomorrow to do up the dishes but we learned this evening that the trailer park is shutting of the water at midnight to drain the pipes for repairs scheduled for tomorrow morning.

Tonight is our last night home alone. Ed's folks are due home from their week-long vacation some time tomorrow afternoon or evening. I wish they could have picked a different day to turn the water off.

I was doing laundry all afternoon and still had two or three more loads I hoped to do. I stopped to focus on dinner. It was the first time I've made dinner for Ed in years. With the water going off at midnight coupled with my fingers current allergy to heat added to Ed's needing to get his shower before bed tonight, I decided to stop working on the laundry. That means keeping my fingers crossed the water comes back on by noon so I can get another load or two done before my in-laws get home with their bags full of vacation laundry.

I did my best to get the kitchen cleaned up tonight. Will have to sweep the floor tomorrow when there is better light in there. Besides the laundry, I too need a shower and shampoo. My last chance to get one without feeling rushed to get done in under half an hour so as not to inconvenience anyone.

My biggest chore of all to get done tomorrow is moving my 'office' out of the living room and back to the bedroom. I brought all the stuff out here in small chunks and it grew like a fungus. There are books on nearly every chair and table. My laptop and my reading lamp are among the many non-book items. As are my needlework supplies and projects. Also blankets and a coat because a couple of the nights got quite chilly. All in all it is probably going to take me a couple hours to get it moved back in the bedroom and put away and the living room put back in order.

Ah, Gads. Now I'm wishing I hadn't just pushed TT off until tomorrow. I should have just numbered these paragraphs. Oh, well. You will probably get another slice of that list of LOL title and author combos like week before last.

And I just realized that I forgot to check in at 70 Days of Sweat. But I'm too tired now. That would take me another hour. I always read everybody's comments and take forever composing mine.

Arrrrgh! Have you ever had one of those days?
