The chair is still in the living room but tomorrow I’m going to set it up the right way, I think she has been punished enough. Today’s project was making my bed with the new bedding. I have to ask, why can’t anything be easy? I will acknowledge that is possible I make things harder than they have to be but seriously, have you ever put a duvet ( aka comforter) in a duvet cover? 20 minutes people and it’s still lumpy, I almost had to crawl inside it to get it all straightened out. I bet that doesn’t happen to Martha Stewart or her minions. I must admit though, it is quite lovely.
So as you know, a few weeks ago, the dog went to her new home. It was really hard for me at first and I was quite sad about it and I do still miss her – but this morning, I work up and went to the grocery store. I didn’t have to worry if the garbage can was put away, I didn’t have to take her out first to go potty, I didn’t come home feeling guilty because I went for a ride in the car without her. It really is so much easier to get out the door when you don’t have to worry about that kind of stuff. With the cat, he’s going to sleep on my bed whether I’m there or not, so to him, me leaving is a bit of a bonus, he doesn’t have to fight for the good spot.
I know that I am jumping around a bit tonight but I made a list of things to mention throughout the course of the day. I do a lot of crossword puzzles and things like that. I also am a big fan of Jeopardy and generally not being an idiot so it started to bug me when I realized there would some things I should know that I did not. So I’ve started a list of things I wanted to learn now that I have some free time and I was thinking, I can’t be the only one who has these thoughts. When I do research my things I think I should know, I’m going to share the info with you as well – do with it what you will. Also, please shoot me a comment, message or email if there is topic you would like a short lesson on. I already have like 3 topics on my list. The first thing on my list was to get a grip on the presidents of the United States from 1900. People talk about Eisenhower and Truman and I’m like when was that and so I provide you with the following list:
- William McKinley (1897-1901)
- Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909)
- William H. Taft (1909-1913)
- Woodrow Wilson (1913-1921)
- Warren G. Harding (1921-1923)
- Calvin Coolidge (1923-1929)
- Herbert Hoover (1929-1933)
- Franklin D. Roosevelt (1933-1945)
- Harry S. Truman (1945-1953)
- Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953-1961)
- John F. Kennedy (1961-1963)
- Lyndon B. Johnson (1963-1969)
- Richard M. Nixon (1969-1974)
- Gerald R. Ford (1974-1977)
- Jimmy Carter (1977-1981)
- Ronald Reagan (1981-1989)
- George H. W. Bush (1989-1993)
- Bill Clinton (1993-2001)
- George W. Bush (2001-2009)
- Barack Obama (2009-2017)
- Donald Trump (2017- )
I’m going to print mine, laminate it and hang it up in the shower for a couple weeks. I feel like I can have it memorized in no time.
Look at me, worrying about learning stuff, grocery shopping and shoving stuff in duvet covers. It feels pretty good.
