It's time once again for a random and happy Tuesday, linking up with Stacy's Random Thoughts at Stacy Uncorked and Sandee at Comedy Plus.
Carl and family seem to have finally gotten over the creepy-crud (Covid).
Last week, i did not risk going over there to clean, i simply cooked a huge batch of soup for them and did their grocery shopping.
This week, after Carl being home for two weeks straight and no one going in there to clean up after him, i knew it would a long haul.
I'd misunderstood and thought he would be back at work yesterday. Instead, he stayed home and took one last test (negative, thank heaven), then went to the doctor to get the coveted note saying he was cleared so he could go back to work.
(His parents are now negative as well, but staying home to take it easy. Yes, i still wore mask, shield and gloves.)
This meant one more day where he was home while i cleaned. This means settling him in his living room chair with a fresh sheet and fresh pillowcases so i can wash the rest of the bedding.
I told him the pajamas and robe he was wearing were his responsibility to wash once he was no longer wearing them. I'm very careful to explain this to him each time it happens, as he once asked me why his pjs were still dirty when i left.
You were still wearing them and i can't put them in the washer when they are on you, i explained. This still confuses him, but i think he's starting to figure it out.
Everything was in a right state, the laundry stain remover spray was in the car again and he seems to have learned a new trick during his lengthy time at home.
Between Carl's apartment and the main part of the house is a hall with storage cabinets on one side and a door into the laundry room on the other.
Carl came into his room twice while i was there and since i was back and forth to the laundry room with his four loads (!) i noticed he now has a new place for stashing things.
On top of the storage cabinets in the hall, directly across from the laundry room door, he has started stowing things, probably when he's going in the laundry room or grabbing something from storage, and simply leaving them there because of course he forgets.
I also found this.
That's Vick's throat spray in the laundry cabinet.
In honor of Carl's two weeks of sick leave, some funnies.
Have a blessed and beautiful Tuesday, everyone!

Glad that Carl and his family are over covid. Also glad you escaped it.ReplyDelete
Covid free Carl, thank goodness! As for those jokes, thanks for giving my Tuesday an amusing start!ReplyDelete
Glad I am well and fith to fightReplyDelete
Glad that Carl and his family are now covid free. Before Covid, we still went to work even with flu but now, the boss and colleagues would love us to stay home for the slightest fever, flu, cold or cough. Lol!ReplyDelete
So glad you managed to avoid catching COVID, looking forward to checking out your blog as ts my first time here xxxReplyDelete
Wishing you and yours good health always.ReplyDelete
Hopefully everyone at that house will stay healthy and be back to normal next week. It would be tough to try to clean around Carl after he has been home for so long and then his parents being home as well.ReplyDelete
Love the funnies and the I'm in bed with a nasty bug made me spew my coffee. In a million years I wouldn't have thought that up.ReplyDelete
Carl is such a whirlwind. I'm glad everyone is negative and things are returning to normal.
Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Love and hugs, my dear friend. ♥
