At any rate, I'm declaring a snow day and staying home (unless cabin fever gets to me late this afternoon; I've been home since I got home from work Thursday (yeah, the errands yesterday didn't happen)).
The plan is pancakes and bacon for breakfast, with a huge cup of coffee. I've not yet made it downstairs to the kitchen, however, as in the last hour I've -
-cleaned the bathroom
-put away a basket and a half of clean clothes
-sorted out knee highs from pantyhose, by color and size
-moved some delicates from the chest of drawers to the "sort out and donate/toss" box
-in the process of doing that, found my green leather purse (um, been looking for that for about nine months)
-replaced the flush lever on the toilet
|Very similar to the new lever|
Overall, I'm pretty handy. Enough so that the direction to tighten or loosen screws is ingrained and automatic. Naturally, the bolt on the lever is reverse threaded (presumably because it goes on facing you, which makes sense, at least until you start to turn it...the wrong way).
I may go wild and replace the smoke detector batteries (one of which involves an actual ladder) or finally attach the new pull chain to the ceiling fan.
Yeah, pancakes are well deserved.
