The only progress I made today on the To Do List was:
1. dumping lots of chemicals in the pool in hopes that the algae science experiment-gone-awry could be brought under control. If I believed in evolution, I would assume that it's just a matter of time before some Chewbacca-like creature crawls from the postmordial ooze that is our pool.
2. Emptied the master closet.
Note: "Master closet" not only refers to the fact that it's the closet in the master bedroom, but also to the fact that we are under its dictatorial control. Evidently, it has been sending us subliminal instructions over the past three years to feed it EVERYTHING that should be tossed out. But instead of tossing out the stuff we're finding in there now, we'll just alphabetize it and put it back. It is what the closet has requested.
Hopefully we'll get more done tomorrow.
