We got a new furnace and thermostat – which we haven’t totally figured out. It was really cold yesterday morning. Not a big problem for Jenna and me, but Roland needed warmer. So he made a few adjustments and the air blasted and continued after he left.
I put my hair into pigtails to keep it off my neck. I keep it up during the summer because it is so thick and weighs like a fleece blanket in addition to the already blasting sun.
When Jenna and I left the house, my hair was still in pigtails. I have worn it down when the morning air’s been cold. But I didn’t bother taking the bands out of my hair, but secured my hat around them. It was amazing how warm my ears felt. I may just continue to do that.
In addition to a new furnace, some new appliances were added to our house. As we made room for all our new material things, items were moved, furniture rearranged and it looks like a tornado blew into our house. It’s in need of so much attention right now.
It’s much easier to clean the house when the skies are grey and the elements are cold and dreary. When the sun is out, I would like to use the sunshine for other things – like reading or running errands or even taking the dog for a walk. It’s hard for me to be motivated to clean when the weather is nice.
My niece and nephew would always clean whenever they would stress – which happened quite frequently when they were living with mom and her health had deteriorated. I thought it would be nice to have them in my house (though the clutter alone could give anyone stress) and right now I’m so ready to let go of everything, I wouldn’t care what they threw away.
Monday I did an excellent job going through the drawers and discarded a lot more than I kept. I need to do that with every room in the house. But I have to be motivated. I think I need to take a break and pick up when it gets dark again – which seems to happen earlier with each passing day.
I remember voting online for whether to keep daylight savings or not. Must have not been legit as the anchors are sending reminders to set our clocks back. The majority said to get rid of daylight savings. Like 80%. I hope that this is the last time we have to move our clocks an hour and that we can just stay on standard for the duration.
