Do nothing day

I do not think it stopped raining for one single minute yesterday. I slept in until 8am. I think dh got up around 9. It was also dark and gray outside. At 10am I was in my bedroom heading for the shower, with no motivation. The dog was sprawled out on his back on the bed, looking very comfy, so I stopped to pet him and ended up crawling back in bed for an hour, dozing off until dh woke me up to show me something on Youtube. He didn't even realize I had gone back to bed, haha. I think I finally got in the shower at 12:30. It was just a completely lazy day, though around 3pm, when the rain had downsized to a drizzle, dh was worried the back gutters were clogged a bit, so he got out the tall ladder and a bucket to pull out the pine needs and such up there. I held the bucket while he moved the ladder from spout to spout. It really didn't take too long. He was wet because he only put on a sweatshirt. My feet were wet because my sneakers are fabric type. He took a shower and then snacked (4pm). Then I decided to take a bath to warm up. Neither of us was hungry for dinner, so we just had cereal later. The dog was also soaking wet. I dried him off best I could with a towel and made him stay in the laundry room to finish drying off, with the bottom part of the dutch door closed. He was not liking that one bit. He whined a few times and then he "arf'd" at me. He used to have no problem staying out there to dry when the other dog was with him, but he doesn't like being alone at all.

I watched a couple more episodes of Big Sky last night and finally got to the rescue part, so maybe it's not so suspenseful going forward, haha. 

For some reason my mom keeps thinking her phone is not working. I think she thinks if she calls someone and they don't answer her phone is not working. I talked to her yesterday morning and it was working. She called me in the evening saying "oh, I guess my phone is working". I said yes, it worked earlier today when I talked to you, too. She said she had just tried to call her guy friend and it didn't go through so she thought it wasn't working. I have a feeling he just didn't answer (or she pushed wrong button or dialed wrong). Worrying about her phone seems to be what's on her mind the past week. I told her I'll check it out when I come see her on Thursday. When she was here a couple weeks ago, I checked out her phone and it was fine. I also have a feeling she's starting to forget to charge it. Plus, I goofed it up last Christmas when I finally figured out how to clear out her voicemail. Because she has no idea/memory now how to access her voicemails, so if anyone is leaving them, she's not getting them. I read that basically the only way to shut that feature "off" is to just let it fill up again. I think while I am there I'll call her phone, let it go to voicemail and just let it record until it's full up. haha. Then her phone will be back to "the mailbox you are calling is full" message.

Today is the 6th of the 8 injections pup needs. I'll be so glad to be done with that and then not have to do it for another month. It's going to work out that it's the first of the month going forward, so that is easy to remember when.

When I was trying to figure out what was for dinner last night I found a container of taco soup still in the freezer I didn't know we still had. Since we ended up having cereal last night, we can have this for dinner today. Easy peasy. Plus I still have Frito scoops that need to get used up before they get stale. And it's another cold gray rainy day, so the food fits the day.

Only 3 days to work this week. I think I can make it!


  1. Isn't it nice having a lazy, "do nothing" day!!!! Even though I'm retired and don't have to answer to anyone, I still have a hard time doing this. But it's bliss!

    1. I kept feeling guilty, but it sure was nice crawling back in bed, haha.

  2. I appreciate a do nothing day. They seem to just happen & you don't know when you will get the next one.
    There's a lot of rescues on Big Sky. Just when you think you can breathe, you can't!

    1. I don't know who is creepier, Ronald or his mother, LOL
