Saturday is a Special Day

It's the only day I have to get stuff done. Today I felt like I was moving about as fast as a snail. It's days like these that make me miss not feeling like an invalid because I can't pick anything up that weighs more than 20 lbs, and I can't bend over to pick up stuff off the floor, and I'm just not balanced quite right. To make myself feel better, and maybe brag a little bit about how much I was actually able to accomplish, I'm going to post all the things I did today.

Sleep in until 10
Get dressed
Let Monkey in
Discover what she chewed up yesterday:
- a $300 computer part (our cost)
- a book I was borrowing from a friend
- a tube of mascara I was going to sell to my sister-in-law
- a dixie cup
Scold Monkey even though I know she has no clue why
Call Dave to tell him the bad news
Make breakfast
Discover that we're out of milk
Eat breakfast
Switch laundry to dryer/hang up
Start load of towels
Go to Petco with Monkey to buy a new rope toy for $20
(hope that the mew rope toy will keep her from chewing our things as much)

Return 3 maternity shirts to Target for $30
Switch towels to dryer

Scrub tub, sprinkle again with Comet (...it tastes like gasoline...)

Scrub tub again with pre-soaked Comet (...it makes you vomit...)

Repair hose
