It's been a good day. Getting my bedroom into being a functional space is key to everything around here. The HUD inspectors will be here in 4 weeks and with the regular stuff going on it could take that long to fix it all. We made good progress today. Thank gods for my Gal Friday. She isn't supposed to do heavy lifting or moving of furnture so that's still on me, but I can do that as long as there's no walking at the same time or I can lean on what I'm moving while doing it. She shoves things out of my way and I move things into place. It works. I just curse like a stagehand and it gets done.
Sunday is the Alka Seltzer Party. There's not a lot of cooking to do for it, just mac salad, meatballs and soup. The rest is self serve- bagels, cake, nutbreads, cheese, chips, pretzels, etc. I'll do mise en place for all that and make the mac salad tomorrow. The ladles are still MIA; I'll have to ask someone to bring one. The Beest gave me dirty looks for moving her catbox into the storage room. Oh well. Now I can get through the kitchen without squeezing my walker by. And there's room for people to mill around. She'll just have to get used to it.
Speaking of the Beest, she's been very amenable with everyone who's come by. I have to wonder what she's up to.
