At Home

We were lucky to get back from Cincinnati. Both of us printed driving directions to Cincinnati, but neither of us printed directions back. The combo of the GPS on Connie's IPad and the road signs (Cincinnati has pretty good signs) got us to the highway. Connie's GPS got upset when we stopped for gas and when Connie dropped me off, and tried to steer Connie in the right direction, which cracked us up.

I took a nap yesterday around 5:30 PM, and woke up at 4:30 AM. I got up and turned off the lights, and slept until around 9 AM. I've fed the girls and myself. Mimi is stressed over my being gone and is not letting me out of her sight. The other two are a bit calmer.

My knees are very, very stiff. I think that it's because of sitting at the conference, sitting in the car, and the long sleep. Plus the University that held the conference has lots of stairs. I have a bit of a headache too.

I need to do some cleaning and laundry. And I want to bug-bomb the house tonight if I can figure out how to turn off the pilot lights. My mom is coming tomorrow afternoon.

The other day, they had a quote in the news about a woman whose daughter was missing after the bombing in Manchester. It turned out that her daughter was killed. That is so freaking sad. I wish that we lived in a world where there were no terrorist attacks, but we don't. Certainly puts my problems in perspective.

My headache came back. I still got out to run some errands, including buying all-important cat food. And a frozen pizza. A Cincinnati pizza company was giving away free personal pizzas because the Reds got 11 strikeouts, but we didn't have time to pick them up. Gave me a taste for pizza though.

I'm drinking water in case that I'm getting the headache because I'm dehydrated. I need to throw laundry in and finish cleaning the bathroom, changing the sheets on the bed, and doing other upstairs cleaning.

I got the bathroom cleaned, except for the floor because the towels that I use as rags to wipe up the floor are locked in my broken washer, probably molding, so I'll have to throw them out when I manage to get them out of there. I'll have to see if Goodwill has some towels that I can use as rags. I did some cleaning in Harlee's room. I also have finished a load of laundry, with another one in the dryer.

I'll need to get up early to clear off my bed (I have books and magazines piled on the side that I don't use), and change the sheets. My neighbors go to sleep early, so I need to move downstairs to clean.

I'm preheating the oven to make my pizza.

I really want to go to Ferne Clyffe State Park in Southern Illinois to hike. There's a very pretty swimming hole with a waterfall that I want to check out. (I'll embed the image in LJ, and come back here, and add the link because I don't like how Dreamwidth handles images.)

The drive is 3.5 hours, so I'd need to drive down in the afternoon, overnight, go hiking, overnight, and drive back up. I'd like to do it this summer though.

My headache has gone away, so that's good. I seem to have jacked up my bad knee though. I seem to do that whenever I travel.
