That's a good idea PF. He certainly doesn't travel fast enough to cover the entire country - more like the entire local bed.


Lordy, I hope he never sees how I tease him mercilessly around here.

I would be happy with 25% of the bed, between Shrek and the cats, I'm better off on the couch.

Between Beagle and DH, I figure I get around 15-25% of the bed as well. I call DH the burrito, he just rolls up in the sheet until I have about 3 inches of sheet left, enough to cover approximately one knee cap.

That's why I like individual duvets.

Since we got a king size bed, we've been constantly fighting over blanket. One tome one of the kids drag her blanket to our bed one sunday morning and she forgot it there. We slept well fallowing no night. Now we have two bkankets , sleep on the dufferent sides of the bed. There us no fighting though. We meet in the middle once in a while. ;)

The he starts again around five a.m. Since he doesn't want me to sleep, as soon as it warms up I am going to be sitting out there when I know he is due to start his run and see which house he comes out of. Then I am going to report him to the Police Officer for the Elderly Affairs in the community. Seargent Gonzalez. He has been very helpful in the past in addressing any issues we may have.

I am planning on spending the day just doing nothing. Something I do with advanced expertise. Our outdoor temps are in the low 60's. And so far no sunshine. A perfect day to follow my plan.

That day where you have to slow down and collect yourself.

I'm baking the wedding cake layers for a cake that I'm making next week (I freeze them, then assemble). I have the recipe that I used for our cake last year, each batch of batter makes 1 layer of each size 6", 9" and 12" I should be making this recipe 3 times, each cake is going to be 3 layers with filling. I'm wondering why the middle tier is cooking fast and is too thin (I weigh the batter for each pan). Apparently somewhere in my scattered brain, I thought that the middle tier was 10" instead of 9" even though my printed recipe clearly states "9 inch layer, 400 grams of batter" I wrote the recipe

Guess who now has to make an extra batch of batter
