Being retired doesn't mean not working! I cleaned one bathroom mini-blind (took it outside to scrub, rinse & hang to dry) and the window. Also just finished hanging several freshly washed throw rugs. I guess I will do one window everyday until I finish..except my bedroom, living room & kitchen (2 windows each).
I got a bit of a scare this morning. I was here on the computer, doing some paperwork for an upcoming oncology appointment, when I heard movement in the kitchen. I thought it was odd because I was alone in the house; H was at the dentist and then had to go to the DMV to renew his license. I looked at the clock -10:24-too soon for him to be back. I thought :Okay, you're alone in the house; someone is in the kitchen; so are the knives, the landline and your cellphone; what are you going to do? I couldn't get to the front door without being seen, so I looked around the room I was in...a curtain rod! Well, it was sturdy enough to give a good wallop to the head & then I could get to the backyard & out the gate or the curved part was sharp enough to do some serious damage to a face. I moved quietly to the kitchen ready for whatever (& scared at the same time).
My son is in the kitchen, going through the desk, looking for something.
Why aren't you at work?
I'm on lunch.
At 10:30 in the morning?
Tuesday is crazy, I'm on a desk from 11-1, then on call from 1-3. This is the only available lunch time.
What are you doing here?
I need an envelope & stamp to give to Don (his supervisor) so he can mail my practicum waiver application, after he signs it.
This couldn't wait until tomorrow?
No, it was due last week, but the school extended the deadline because of the storm. I need to get this in by next week.
That's when he spotted the curtain rod.
Were you going to hit me with that?
I imagine I was a topic of conversation when he got back to the library and it will trickle down to former co-workers that I 'attacked' my only child with a curtain rod!
Should make for a few laughs.
