Day One Hundred Seventy-Two

I woke up early this morning to the sound of rain pelting the window again. I smiled because I like rainy Hawaii days. The rain is warm for the most part and it's fun to watch it coming down. Though I do hate it when it knocks the dish out right in the middle of a show. I fell back to sleep for a couple more hours and was woken by the lovely sounds of Dexter growling at me, for no reason other than him wanting me to get up and play.

Ok, I lied for a sec. The first time I woke up this morning was in the middle of the night when Winston decided to go to sleep on the dog crate. Mind you, this is a metal wire crate... it can't be easy to walk on! Weird cat.

Today I had a list, a long list, of stuff to do. It was nice to have a rainy day to do it in! I began cleaning the house thoroughly (or super-cleaning), starting with the kitchen and moving to the living room. If you're like me, you don't want to come home from a trip to a messy house, right? All the while, I did five loads of laundry, including my sheets. It'll be nice to sleep tonight!

Halfway through I took a break to open my final gift from Brandon while we were chatting online. I wanted to use it, you see!

Big blue Amazon bag - what could it be?

I can't wait to find out!

It's a steam mop!!

Thanks, Brando, I love you!

And then Winston climbed into the bag and claimed it as his own. I took some photos and posted them on FB with the caption "Can I return this? I didn't ask for this gift!" hehe

So after vacuuming, I used my steam mop for the first time. Wow! It's so easy to use! The only complaint I have is the cord, which for some reason I didn't expect when I wanted a steam mop. Whoops. But even that isn't unmanageable. So yeah. Satisfied consumer, that is me.

I decided to tackle packing a day earlier than I would because... I don't know. It proved to be more stressful than anything! I had an array of suitcases. I packed one, then unpacked and packed another, then repacked the original, and then unpacked it again and packed another whole different one, plus another one. Geez. I think I've figured it out, though now I have hardly anymore room for anything at all. Hm. I'll have to reevaluate tomorrow afternoon.

I did get a little stir-crazy today in my house with only the company of my pets. I took tons of photos of them being cute and posted them to my FB. I got out of the house once to go get some Popeye's because I didn't feel like cooking. It was nice. :)

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post! I'll be showing you my Christmas decorations. ;)


  1. Your cat is weird!

    Man, I want a steam mop! My swiffer wet jet is letting me down lately!!

  2. Yay for a steam mop! I have a Shark one that works okay but I want the new Vac and then Steam one.
