Mary Richards (as in the Mary Tyler Moore show…my favorite character ever.  I would want to be her), had a day like today it would be just what I did.  I had the house to myself today.  The only thing that was missing was Rhoda dropping in for coffee.

  • Slept until 10 a.m.
  • Drank coffee and made myself pancakes.
  • Started watching the CBS tv series The Good Wife.  I know it’s been on for about 10 years, but I never took the time to watch it.  I am renting it from the library.  I am in love with Chris Noth.  As in Mr. Big.  I want to marry him. 
  • Went to work out to work off the pancakes.  I told myself that if I go I would be proud of myself afterward and I was.  I just used “myself” twice in one sentence.  Mary Richards was a tv news producer she would never do that.
  • Ate a grilled chicken sandwich and apples from Wendy’s.
  • Watched another four episodes of the Good Wife.  That makes a total of 8 episodes in one day.
  • Prepped Miss Bee’s bathroom for painting tomorrow.  Her bathroom is dirty.  She’s 14 what did I expect?  Painter will judge me.  Don’t care.
  • It’s 7 p.m., what will I do until 10 p.m.  I could make a batch of lemon bars, but I think I will do that tomorrow.  Want to try and stay on my 12 hour health kick.  I may start my second book of the summer….because I finished the first one!
  • Attachments by Rainbow Powell is the best book ever.  That’s not saying much because I don’t read.  But it is SO GOOD!  It’s the sweetest little romantic, quirky book.  You will love it.  Easy read.

I have several projects I want to do this week that I have some alone time.  Like paint my kitchen doors.  I did a pantry door for a client this past week and it made me jealous.  So, I am doing it for myself.  I may rearrange things around the house.   I will keep you posted on my week.
