Saturday was a busy day for Captain Carl and me. We went for a walk first thing in the morning because Texas has decided to become the total bitch that she is every summer and the temp was promised to hit almost 100 degrees by noon. Then we decided to hang the sun blocking curtains my sister gave to me a year ago. I practically have a degree in procrastination, I am so good at it sometimes I can hardly believe it.
So after struggling for three hours with a project that should have taken no more than an hour, we finally got some shade in our family room. And since I was already sweaty and hot from all that business, I decided to clean the floors. I even cleaned under the furniture, people. That's how serious I was about the cleaning because everyone knows you only clean UNDER the furniture when you really mean business or when your mother-in-law is coming over. I found two cat toys, three used kleenex, one penny, one token for an amusement park I've never heard of and about 50 dust balls.
By the time both of us had showered, it was 7pm. The Captain grilled some hamburgers and then we zoned out on the couch for a few more hours. 9:30pm rolled around and we decided to go to bed. Our new renter, I'll call him Renty until I think of something better, came downstairs as we were heading to the bedroom. I had my purse with me, because I don't leave it out in the kitchen anymore. So I guess I looked like I was leaving because Renty asked me if we were going out for the night. To which the Captain and I laughed hysterically.
Once we were in bed, the Captain put on his CPAP mask and watched TV while I clipped coupons and made a grocery list. At 10pm on a Saturday night.
Our life is so exciting it's ridiculous.
P.S. The Kiddo got a job and his first day was today. He's cooking in a fast food restaurant. I'm so glad too, because our new renter is really great so far and I don't have a lot of funny things to tell about him besides his weird fascination with my cat, so at least I'll get some good fast food stories for y'all soon.
