Good Start to a good week

For some reason, the details of which elude me, today's swim was the best in ages. My breathing was perfection and nothing hurt. I wasn't bored or ready to quit after 30 minutes. I just enjoyed it enormously. And I'm taking it as a sign that this is going to be just an excellent week.

I don't have details on that either. I know Wednesday is house cleaner day and Thursday is a Diamond Club baseball night. But otherwise, it looks to just be a regular week. Maybe just a regular week with nice, rounded edges.

I do have a bunch of house hold todo's I want to get done today. Little things that are easily put off. But, not today. I'm going room by room and doing them all. Also a little laundry. Otherwise the usual. I'm saving my errands for Wednesday. Goodwill/Costco/grocery...

Ok second cup of coffee is done so I think I'll just get going on those Dija's.

In our house growing up, we did not have Honeydo's we had Dija's - Did you do xx? Did you do yy? - we just called them Dija's. No, you can't go anywhere until you've finished your Dija's. (As I type this, I keep using the upper case D and the apostrophe s and I have no idea why. It's not like spellcheck is going to be hip to this Dija stuff.

Reminds me of the time that someone - maybe someone here on LJ - asked me how we spelled the name of the imaginary friend that my sister and I had when we were little. Ok, 1. let's not dwell on the fact that we were not imaginative enough for each of us to have our own imaginary friend* and 2. yes, this is the same sister that I have not seen or spoken to in more than a dozen years. BUT... yes, we had one single imaginary friend that came to our tea parties. Her name was Ms. SippyCookie. And, nope, I have no idea what the correct spelling of that is.)

*My brother, on the other hand had his own imaginary friend and that friend had an army! His name was Hossenfeffer and his army was Mechanical Men. Whenever he was accused of some wrongdoing he would always blame Hossenfeffer and his Mechanical Mens.

I got no Mechanical Mens so I'm going to have to do my Dija's myself. I'm on it.
