Since I'm having a man sleep over at my house tomorrow night, I've been busy trying to clean the place up a bit. I don't think he will notice, but his Mom or Dad might. Grandson Liam is going to spend Saturday night at Grandma's house!
The biggest concern I have is what to feed him. I cook for myself and it isn't necessarily what a kid might want, but I'll be ok. There's always Chipotle and In-N-Out Burger nearby! I kind of like Chipotle myself.
In between the jobs I've been doing, I've either been reading "the Book" or thinking of things to get rid of. I will go back and follow the routine recommended by the author, but after I finish the entire book. Right now I may as well discard some things I know I don't need to keep.
I have finished the chapter on clothing, and the next is books. My main stash of books is in the spare bedroom, but sort of blocked in by camping gear. I can picture how nice the bookshelf is going to look when I discard a lot of books I bought and never read, or those I just don't want to hang on to any more. I am already enjoying the concept of tidying up my house and keeping only what I need and what brings me joy. While I might never achieve the fullest results, I think I'm going to be very happy with what I accomplish. I am really dreading getting into the photographs though.
The dog park is really getting to be a nuisance. I was just barely awake this morning when the barking and growling began. My doors and windows were all closed but it didn't affect the noise. Having always had fairly quiet dogs (but who could bark when they needed or wanted to), I have no patience with what is going on. I don't blame the dogs, but their owners could set a level of tolerance and then bring the dogs to order when it is reached.
I don't know where it came from, but all of the sudden I am craving ice cream. I don't know if it would be better to buy a small container or just forego it altogether. I have avoided it for several months now, so maybe the craving will pass. I may treat myself now and then when the weather gets hot.
