I had one of those days today – you know the ones where everything is totally awesome
and you seem to have energy from some reservoir and you can totally do everything on the list?
Which you know I absolutely did not do!
And it all started with a decent night’s sleep – not a great one, just decent.
It’s the first night in ages that I haven’t woken myself up crying or crying out from an emotionally terrifying nightmare.
So I got up and felt, okay.
And I jumped on the Autistic Bus and although I had my scary driver, I was okay.
Then I came home and got my chainsaw
and went and filled up the car and the gerry can with fuel +oil (for chainsaw)
and headed ‘bush’.
I found all the neat and dry wood that I had stacked at the end of last winter,
just waiting for me to start cutting and transporting.
Then I spent an hour flooding my chainsaw and not cutting even a splinter.
I stacked the back of the BeepBeep with a pile of sticks and thickish branches to get me through to Saturday.
On the way home I dropped the chainsaw off to get the damn thing started (de-flooded) and the chain sharpened.
As I pulled into the carport, I reversed in so that I could unload the wood.
After I did this, I washed out the new (secondhand) wood box that I bought at a garage sale 3 months ago (for $5).
I unloaded the wood, then got the vacuum cleaner out and proceeded to vacuum the hatch section of the BeepBeep.
This took 75 minutes.
Can you guess why?
I racked my brain trying to remember the last time I had even done this . . . wanna know?!?
At least three and a half years ago. At least!
After that I did a load of washing, grabbed my bib ‘n bobs for the afternoon shift of the Autistic Bus and headed back out.
At the bus depot I washed the windscreen and drivers window of the BeepBeep,
as I had 1/2 hour to spare.
Then this, then that, and some more of this happened and it’s now 9:45pm and I’m knackered
but I can’t believe what a totally productive and awesome day I’ve had.
Imagine what I’ll be like tomorrow if I get a good night of sleep again tonight.
Watch out world ; )
