Getting Up a Little Earlier

I figured out that if I set my alarm for 6:30 or so and actually get out of bed before 7 I get a whole lot more done. If I don't do something before 10 am or so, it probably won't get done that day or I'll do a half ass job like putting the clothes in the washer but then forgetting to put them in the dryer.

So, yesterday I was lazy and didn't set the alarm but today it went off at 6:30 and I hit the snooze button about 5 times and then finally got up. I've already actually cleaned the bathroom and vacuumed the bedrooms and cleaned the cat box, so there is something to be said for getting my lazy self up earlier. I've also started the laundry and hope I will remember to put it in the dryer.

I had to clean the bathroom because when I went to brush my teeth this morning the sink made me feel a little ill because Harri started hacking up a hairball at about 3:30 am and Keith was holding her over the sink so that said hairball wouldn't be laying in the middle of the rug. So there was remnants of hairball vomit in the sink and it almost made me vomit. I don't usually let any of the cats in the bedroom during the night because they either climb under the covers with us or run around the room or want us to get up and feed them or as in Harri's case, vomit somewhere. But last night I felt sorry for her because she gets picked on by the bully cats so much and I thought it would be nice for her to be in a quiet room all night, and then she goes and leaves us a hairball as a thank you.


Watching the World Series last night was fun and it was nice to see the Giants win since they haven't won since 1954, which is even longer than I've been alive, and I've been alive for a long long time now. It's kind of cute to see grown men jumping around like little kids after a win like that. Watching so much baseball this past week made me want a Dodger Dog and a beer, though, or at least some peanuts. Or Cracker Jack.

And I'm so glad that election day is finally here so that I don't have to see any more election commercials for a while. Of course, the election commercials stop just in time for all the Christmas commercials to start. Ugh.

And, speaking of the dreaded holiday season, I worked on collage gift tags yesterday, which was fun and a little more creative than I've been lately. I've decided to list paper goods on Artfire only, it's just too expensive to list a set of tags or gift bags on Etsy, after the 20c to list and the 3.5% sales fee and the 30c paypal fee plus whatever percentage on top of that at paypal, you're lucky to make $1.00 on that set of gift tags or bags. I sold two sets of gift bags on Artfire yesterday and that sale alone will pay for the next 2 months shop fees.

Anyway. Off to vacuum the living room now.
