I took a nap waiting for the acetaminophen to kick in, and overslept. It took a while for me to get on a roll. Now I'm on a roll, but it's getting late. Good thing that I don't need to be at work early tomorrow. Laundry is in the wash and Harlee's litter box is soaking.

I probably should eat something soon, but I'm not hungry.

I stepped on Mimi's paw earlier when she was running under my feet. She seems to be okay, but I notice that she's staying well away from my feet now.

I didn't set my alarm today because I'm staying home. I slept until 1 PM, which is later than I normally get up. Mimi was not happy with me. She was HUNGRY! And I should feed her RIGHT NOW! I've fed them all now, and they've settled down.

Speaking of cats and food, they've decided that if I leave and come back, that means that I'm going to feed them. I normally feed them when I get home from work. Last night, I got home from my travels around 7 PM, which is way earlier then I normally feed them. Mimi and Zara were circling around like a couple of sharks. Cats!

I think that I'm going to work on a blog post. Later, I need to clean and do laundry. Oh yeah, set up food in the crockpot. And clean out the refrigerator because stuff is falling out.

My stupid knee hurts.

Had a long afternoon nap again. I wish that I knew why I'm so tired.

I'm currently eating lunch, and then will throw myself together to do a little more laundry. It's supposed to rain (maybe part of the reason that I slept so long is that it's overcast?), so I guess that I'll put the laundry in plastic bags.

Need to e-mail my dad to tell him that I'm not taking the Rockford trip. There's a state park between Rockford and Galena, Apple Canyon State Park, that he was encouraging me to go to. I suppose that if I get up really early (it's a three-hour drive), I could still go there sometime. But it's easier to get there from Rockford or Galena. Judging by the pictures that I've seen, it's a very pretty park.

Oy. I accidentally stepped on Mimi's tail, and she promptly attacked Zara, and they got into a huge, yowling fight. I've got them split up now. Harlee heard me yelling, and started meowing in the middle of it.

I did start on the bedroom, and was working on emptying a chest filled with clothes that I don't wear, when my mom called. She got the weekends confused as to when I'm going to give my presentation. We hung up quickly, and will talk tomorrow.

I finished two loads of laundry, and one blog post for my professional blog.

Oh, and I've got my gym bag ready to use. I don't know where the shorts went that I wear to the gym in the summer, but I found some nylon capris that shouldn't be too hot. Now all I have to do is go there!

Dyed my hair. While my hair was processing, I set up a presentation page on my professional Web site, and added it and a link to my Linked In profile on the site menu. (I didn't think that it made sense to post a PDF of my resume when it will quickly go out of date, and I'd have to update both it and my Linked In page.) Anyway, I decided that I rocked :)

I decided to wear cheap makeup because all that I'm going to do is laundry and then go to WalMart. The whole time that I was putting it on, I was thinking, "Ugh," but actually, it doesn't look too bad.

I had a conversation with a neighbor, who asked if my air conditioning was working. I said, "Yes," and she grimaced, but then I said. "It's cooling the downstairs well, but not the upstairs." She said that she had the same problem, so she closed some vents to get the a/c to cool the upstairs, and now it's not working. That's bad because It's been in the 90s F. I hope that they fix it.

I've put a load of laundry in. I need to go work on the bedroom before I lose my momentum.

I got up with my alarm today, and did my normal morning routine (breakfast for me and the girls, and scoop litter boxes). Then I took a "short' nap and--you guessed it--slept all afternoon. Oh well.

I've just finished lunch. I did accomplish one thing, connecting my domain to my professional Web site. I need to list that site in my contact information for my poster presentation. I also need to make a few more blog posts, and post my presentation from last month, but the deadline for the contact information is midnight tonight.

I'm about to go dye my hair, and then do laundry. I also need to put my veggie lasagna in the crockpot to eat later.

I had a bunch of very vivid dreams this morning, and woke 4 PM. Yikes. The girls were hungry and agitated. The mucus traveling around my system had settled in my larynx, and I had no voice. And I'm scheduled to talk to my mom tonight.

Well, the girls are now fed and have settled down. I fed myself, which has broken up some of the mucus, so my mom might be able to understand me. (She has a bad hearing loss, which doesn't help.)

I had planned to dye my hair, but I'm postponing it until next week. I want to have it done before my conference presentation, but that's on the 25th. I need to throw myself together, start laundry, and start scrubbing Harlee's litter boxes.
