I sound like I've been gargling sand...

I spent a half mile of my ride home yesterday behind a badly tuned diesel dirt truck. There were SUVs in the lane next to me so I couldn’t get out from behind it and there was some butthead tailgating me so I couldn’t drop back. The result was that I sucked down a massive amount of black nasty diesel exhaust. Even wearing the helmet didn’t help.

I coughed all last night and this morning my throat sounds like I’ve been yelling at a thrash concert all night.

And to top it all off I’ve had to talk to people all morning. I will likely leave early so I can get home and rest for a bit. I need to do laundry when I get home and work on getting the one room re-organized so I the sooner I get home the sooner I can get that done and then rest for the remainder of the evening. My daughter won’t like that because it means she won’t get the TV because I can’t sleep with the TV on.

Need to get some things at Lake Shore Learning for her. I saw the one teacher’s setup for organizing magazines and I think it will work quite well for her to manage her books a little better. It’s about $50 but that’s money well spent to me. Anything I can do to make it easier for her to keep her room clean and neat is good with me. Now if I could only do that with her mother. ;-)

I’m not going to let this disorganization last past two weeks. If it’s not completed by then I will complete it myself in the manner I choose. And as has happened in the past I’m betting nobody would like that.

Put all the stuff back on the deck yesterday so that’s finished with the exception of repainting the bottom edge of the door frame and the furniture.

Need to burn all the branches and stuff in the back yard. Just waiting for a non-windy day for that. I may need to temporarily cut it into smaller pieces because I need to mow this weekend if our housemate doesn’t get to it.

Still a lot to do in the yard. I need to get some more 30 year landscape fabric and put it down in front and possibly in back. I need to get back there and spray again. I didn’t know that Spectracide was absorbed through the leaves so I cut all that grass before spraying it so now I need to spray it again. That means first thing in the morning this weekend I should get up and bag the plants back there and spray. That may or may not happen depending on how I feel tomorrow morning. My wife says she needs to be somewhere at 10 a.m. or so which means that I won’t be able to sleep in tomorrow no matter how much my body needs it. :-(

Once we get stuff organized upstairs my load should lighten considerably. At least that’s what I’m hoping for anyway. Hopefully my wife will be able to get rid of a bunch of clothes so that all our stuff fits in the dressers and closets and isn’t overflowing everywhere. Our disorganized clothes are one of the worst things about our current living spaces. it bugs me because I can’t keep a simple laundry hamper in our room to put our dirty clothes in because there’s no space.

We can’t keep living like this...
