Monday, again?

Boy, these Monday's sure do get here quick anymore!

We had a pretty uneventful weekend. Marie and I did not walk this Saturday. Rich and I went to Lumber Liquidators and then to breakfast. We need to pick out a floor for the kitchen. There was several choices and in the end we decided that I need to pry off a piece of the molding and take it with me to compare. If the molding is red-tinted oak then the floor needs to be red-tinted too! Know what I mean? Anyway, some time this week I will go back there and buy the floor.

We moved the guest bed from the basement to a upstairs bedroom. I wanted to put my treadmill back in the basement room because winter is coming and it will soon be too cold to walk outside. We have a lot of junk to get rid of downstairs. I need to get it together and donate it before the end of the year for the tax deduction. It can be pretty overwhelming of a project at first but you just take one piece of junk at a time!! When we had the wallpaper removed from the living room I took all of the pictures off the walls, and probably 10% of them are going back up. The rest of them I will donate! Plus wooden shelves and a lot of country-looking stuff!

I have not felt good all weekend. I don't think it's a cold, more like sinus stuff! I woke up this morning with a sore throat and I still feel like crap today.

This weekend, Rich and I watched a documentary called Grey Gardens It's about these two women, a mother and daughter, who lived in East Hampton in the 70's. The mother, Big Edie was the aunt of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Grey Gardens is the name of the dilapidated mansion that they lived in with a bunch of cats and a couple of raccoons. It was pretty good and I felt kind of bad for the daughter. You could tell she had been and still was a beautiful woman. Her and her mother were both a little crazy.

OK that's it for now. Got to get back to work!

I hope you feel a bit better soon. I know what you mean about pictures not finding their way back up on to redecorated walls. I hardly put any of mine back up, though I keep saying that I will.
