But looking for pictures, I was going to download pictures from the card in the Kodak. Guess what. There was no card in the Kodak. I took it out so G could test his blasted game camera. When he tested it and found his card was ok, he put mine in a place I wouldn't put it. I forgot about that and didn't immediately put it back. I will have to go on a search and seizure mission today, but I will bet it is gone, gone, gone.
I vacuumed as I went, and I noticed one of the little thingies that covers the foot of the ironing board was off. I was trying to not get it. I mean the vacuum will leave a scrap of fabric there forever. But as you probably guessed it gobbled up the little rubber thingy.
So I stopped the machine. The foot thingy was in the top container of the machine. I had remove all the extraneous filters and stuff. THEN - as fate would have it (of course!!) - I couldn't reassemble the filters. At that point I took them to clean out all the dust, and the foam filter has been drying all this time. Probably well dried by now. I just haven't had time to go back up.
Saturday is a complete blank. I seriously do not know what I did that took the entire day. Probably computer cr@p. I AM bad about that! Unless I cleaned on Saturday. Which, looking back, was probably what happened since my friend couldn't get Krissi on the phone to deliver the hand warmers to her. Being retired, at least to me, makes one day almost like another. You just have witnessed my brain really (not) working, and I am to lazy to go back and edit this.
Yesterday was a fun day. We went way south of here to another little town around the Houston area. We went to Pearland for Katie to participate in a water polo camp. It will determine if she makes the area team or not - which she is most likely a shoe in for.
In addition to being with my daughter and Karrington, we have relatives living in the area. So we got to visit with them which doesn't happen often. Once a year at family reunions! It was a fun day.
I knew I was tired when I got home. In fact, even with a huge diet Coke in my hands on the trip home, I was about to fall asleep while Krissi and I were talking. I did fall asleep on the couch, but when I got to bed finally - naturally I didn't//couldn't fall asleep.
So I started reading. I got closer and closer to the end of the book, so I continued to read. I read until right after mid-night. This morning it was 10 when I woke, and that was only because the phone rang to remind me of my retinal appointment to get my eyeball punctured again for this month!
Today, Katie is coming to help take down the yard art, and I am hoping to get some time spent upstairs again. I still have gifts from Christmas to finish!
But to the pictures. One is from Thanksgiving and the others from the New Year's ice storm. We in this area aren't used to this kind of stuff. We were house bound for 48 hours because our decks were frozen over!
