"It's curtains for you!" - trinalin thinks things through
"It's curtains for you!"
Since I have a final project due on Monday and a final curriculum due on Thursday, I'm doing everything I can to avoid working on them. But at least I'm doing productive things to avoid them!

The first thing we (parents and me) did today was check out garage sales in town - well, visited Aunt Becky at her son's garage sale. After we went to the post office and library, we picked up pork tenderloin sandwiches and French fries from a vendor on Main street (in place for the town garage sales).

Before we headed off for our grand adventure, I stopped back home for something, only to find that the kitties had pulled the living room curtain down again. They get their claws stuck in the lace and pull it down. And then trying to get the lace back on the curtain rods is a pain in the arse. So I measured the windows and resolved to buy new curtains while we oot & aboot.

We started out at JoAnn fabrics with the thought of mom making curtains (she's making some gingham ones for her side-door), but then we decided to check if Walmart had something like I could use. And there, we found just what I needed - sheer but not lace (no place for kitties to get claws caught on) and not floor length like the big window had. I also got some grass seed and wrapping paper & cards for Amy & Rachel's birthday presents.

Back home I got to work taking down the old curtains and putting up the new ones. And before I did that, I cleaned the front window - it had a long row of kitty nose prints from kitty cats walking along the sill and looking outside. Turns out in addition to nose prints there was a nice layer of dirt. Comes with never cleaning my windows. Ugh. Should do my other windows tomorrow.

I also put some of my grass seed in the dead spots in my lawn. And watered it. That took a bit of time. Then it was time to have supper and watch the new DW. And then judiang, elsaf, and hergrace got online so we watched the episode together. Let's hear it for Instant Messaging! :-)

Window cleaning is one of the most physically demanding tasks about the house (forget iron man style exercise, scrub off those streaks!), but having shiny windows really makes a difference. Definitely a good work avoiding task. Good luck with ye assessment :D
