I've got a terrible cold. I'd like to know who to thank, but I have no clue who it was. Oh well. Hopefully Advil Cold and Sinus helps me get through the day. Ray is gone to "Tech Days" in Toronto for the first professional development he has been allowed to have (through his company) in the 4 years he has been there. There have been many attempts, all of which have been yanked out from under him, but this is the first success. So I am happy for him. We did splurge a bit though: he had to take the Go Train in at 6:55 am in order to make it on time, which would have meant getting up and driving him in at 6:30. Normally he'd just park our second car at the station, but my folks have it out for the week. Getting up and taking him would be fine if it were just me, but I am not getting the kids up at 6:30 am and dealing with their cranky selves for the rest of the day. Thanks, but I will pass. So I got him to take a cab. Phew!
So far today (and it is not quite 8:30 am), I have managed to clean out my side of the cupboards in the bathroom, clean out my dresser and closet to take out the summer stuff and store some of the stuff that doesn't fit me, I also found a few things that need to be sewn. I'm not great at sewing, but I can manage buttons, small holes, and tacking up a hem by hand. I've got a load of laundry folded, one in the dryer, and one in the washer. I think there will be two more. And I intend to go through the boys' closet today too.
I'd do some work, but Liam will be awake any moment now and Xander is up and about already. Not that conducive. Maybe once Ray gets home. I have a pile left to do.
