Didn't they teach you that in school? I would think with your training, you'd be able to do some sort of "short-sheeting" technique that would roll him out without waking him up...

Oh, I can make and take apart a bed with someone in it. The question is can I do it without waking him up. That's a lot of rolling...might make him seasick.

He woke up in time...now I have to get up the energy to just get it done.

I'm making chicken pot pie, checking my email and generally hanging out.

Still working on what has become a long-term project. When we moved the last of my things here just before Halloween, our breezeway looked like we were either moving in or moving out. Boxes, boxes, boxes....

Well, at least, we can now walk through the breezeway and the boxes are organized so I can manage what's left to either put away, give away, sell, or throw away.

Some of what's taken the longest is all the Christmas stuff. There was plenty I brought with me that I'd accumulated over the years. Now, with the remainder brought in October, there are all the decorations we had/used at the shop. Holy cow! What a pile!!

But, looks like I'll have it fully in hand by the end of today. Then I can concentrate on "plain ole stuff." There's a boatload of that, too.

How does one accumulate so much? Not any more. I've become quite the "thrower outer."

I'm working on three proposals. It is too cold to go upstairs and work in the back bedroom. I'm going to have to get in there before next week--my "warm" weather clothes are there and I need to find stuff to wear while in TX. Not to mention, decide which suitcase to take.

I'm sitting here, having a glass of wine. Husband and doggie are out for a walk, so am enjoying the peace (husband turns on TV when he wakes, off when he goes to bed at night. As soon as he steps out the door I turn it off and either listen to music (if I've got a chore or am reading) or blessed silence (if I'm on the computer).

I'm approaching post-piggledy, but, Tim, I don't recommend this as a fulfilling afternoon activity. Better the glass of wine Claire mentioned.

Well, I went to bed at 7 a.m. Was in a deep sound sleep. Son #2 calls. Stopping by, needs to use the outhouse. That means I have to wake up and go open the side door for him. Still sleeping on my feet. Get halfway to door, someone let him in. Go back to bed. Just dozing off again. Daughter stops by to see new chair (Xmas present from son #3) Brings me a very large jar filled with pennies to roll. Dishes and containers that I had sent her food on. She wants to chat. I am standing there going, "Huh? What? Huh? Huh? I am trying to be polite and not ask her to leave. She finally leaves. Oh good! Back to sleep. Phone rings. Son #2. Saw daughter coming in. Wanted to know if I was able to get back to bed yet. FORGET IT! I am up for the day. I am just trying to figure out if the world or my kids are against me. It could be both. I can take care of the kids. (The urge to kill some days is very strong.) But taking on the world, I will have to wake up first. Huh? What?
