Time spent (I’ve always had an adventurous life)

Originally published on August 13, 2013.  Just looking back a bit.

After the cookie baking, I decided that I needed to schedule my days a little bit better so I don’t become bored…………and the first thing I did was actually wrote down what few “chores” I actually have and designated specific times in which to do them so the week wasn’t quite so nonchalant and I would have things to do in each hour……well the list stopped after just a few entries…..like laundry, cook dinner, make the bed……………………..wow. It looks like I have nothing to do……….sigh

So I gave up on the list idea and decided to just “go with the flow” and find stuff as I thought of it…………and sat for a whole 20  minutes with absolutely NO IDEAS of stuff to do to fill my days.  So I played a few computer games….that took a half hour before I was actually bored.  SIGH

I decided to mop the floors.  Figured at least they would look good and I would have sumthing to take up a few hours………every floor in this house is tiled so I figured I’d just mop everything……………found the mop….changed the mop head to a clean one (4 minutes down!)……..looked all over the house and garage for a bucket…………….found no bucket, but I did find a huge old popcorn container that would work………………washed it out (took another four minutes for the search and clean)…stuck the mop head into the container to make sure it fit…..and promptly got the mop stuck in the container (I did mention it was an old POPCORN container?)

OK, now to get the danged mop outta this thing…I pulled, I pushed and twisted……….I yanked….I grabbed the container between my thighs and pulled as hard as I could…..I put the thing on the floor, stuck one foot on the top grabbed the mop and yanked for all I was worth……….and my foot slipped into the danged container!  Great. Now I have a mop and my foot in this damned thing! Water is splashing everywhere…..did I mention I had put warm soapy water into the container? I didn’t? well, Geeze..you think ya’ll would KNOW without me saying it…………………….sigh………………….

sat on the floor and put my other foot on the rim getting ready to shove as hard as I could and in walks George…………………..who says………………………………

“Suze? Honey?  Did you mean to put your foot in that?”

(He’s still living only because I couldn’t walk over there and slap him silly!)  I said “nope, it was an impulse”

George (Bless His Heart!) says “you need some help?” I (of course) roll my eyes at him and say “um, ya think?”

He just looks at me for a minute then says “hang on” and wanders out to the garage………….and comes back in with the gardening shears!  I screech “NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!” He grins and says “I was kidding Suze”…and grabs the container with both hands……puts his foot against my stomach and says “ready?”  I just sort of groan and say “please don’t hurt me!”  He grins like one of those horror flick killers right before the dude hurts the blonde chick that is too stupid to know she’s hanging out with a killer and yanks!  the mop goes flying across the room along with my shoe….my foot is red and now sore…..water is everywhere………………and George is laughing his ass off! GREAT!

I eventually get off the floor (it took a while cause it was slippery), pick up the mop and start swabbing the floor…………………..George just says sumthing in German that sounds like Suze, du bist wirklich verrückt and wanders off with the popcorn container……………………..

I finally get the floors all clean…..taking the mop back and forth to the kitchen sink to rinse………(yes I KNOW I should have done that in the first place)…….and realize that only an hour has gone by.

Oh lordie…how to spend the next 9 hours until I get to cook dinner? I’m sure I will think of something……………………….
