Home Invaders

It’s Friday! Woot! Woot! It is my favorite day of the week. I am feeling much better this morning. All day yesterday I felt like I had been run over by a truck. I guess I had, the chemo truck. All I wanted to do was go to sleep, so when it was lights out for The Boy at 8pm it was lights out fe me too. I bet I was asleep by 8:30pm. Getting up was still a pain but once up, I felt good. I am going to the gym later to workout with SK and still have some cleaning to do to get ready for our friends, so I hope the feeling sticks.

Last week Hotel Yorba was invaded by gnats! Damn little things were everywhere! In the kitchen, in the pantry, in the laundry room! They have been driving us crazy by flying into our faces or landing in our drinks, including my glass of wine! We searched, cleaned and couldn’t get rid of them. So yesterday I went on-line and searched on how to get rid of them. People stated that putting a little dish soap and apple cider vinegar into a bowl and putting it out wherever you saw the gnats would work. So I mixed up the solution and put bowls of it in the pantry, laundry room and by our kitchen sink and waited. I went to check on them about an hour later and sure enough all three bowls had at least two gnats in them! When I woke up there were at least 10 in each bowl. I have refreshed each bowl this morning and hope to catch-all the little buggers before our friends get here.

My Mess

My desk is a mess 90% of the time. It is. I admit it. I only have two drawers and too much crap. So I brought up of drawers that use to be in my “work office”. It had been in storage and full of all kinds of stuff. I was cleaning it out and found of our old Palm Pilots! I remember when these first came out. My Man just had to have one and even bought me one. I wasn’t as excited as him but if he was buying I wasn’t going to say no.

I don’t remember using it all that much but I did go all out with my Coach carrying case! It is crazy how far we have come in such a short time. No color screen and I had to use a little stylus pen and not my finger!

Hotel Yorba Landscape Project

We have picked our landscaper for the Hotel Yorba project. It is Molly from WDesign. She came in with a good bid and I really like her. She is also excited about doing the coop/run project. I look forward to see what she comes up with. We are going to meet on Wednesday to go over a few things and then they should start. I am going to assign my dad the task of watching over things while I am in the hospital. I hope all goes well. I have been in charge of this whole project and I want My Man to be happy with the end result!

Reader’s! Have a wonderful day and long weekend! I am heading out to pick up the foot stool cushion we ordered for the screened in porch and then the gym. Be good to yourself and each other!!

Shopping was not good for some reason the stores I go to seem to have the same thing year after year the solutions of course is to go to different stores, wish you were with me.
