Rise and Shine

Chimi and I were NOT happy when Linda got us up while it was still pitch black to go outside and start our morning.  "Really... on a Sunday?  Don't you usually sleep in til at least 6 a.m. on Sundays?"  She had to drive downtown into DC to pick up a friend from Union Station and needed to be on the road super early.  There was zero traffic, but some of the roads were closed and she did get a wee-bit confused (never really lost) and ended up being about 10 minutes late.  There was still time in the morning before needing to be at church to give me a bath, scrub the tub, wash the bathroom floors, wet-mop the hardwood floors and dry shampoo the carpets... all before her shower!   After church she went to our local "big box" store to get veggies and a few other necessities.  She was on a strict budget and stayed out of the fun aisles like books, clothes and electronics. 

There is still time for a nap before p.m. church. (Or maybe she'll mow the grass.  It's so annoying how the grass keeps needing to be mowed week after week. Nap or Mow? Nap or Mow?)
