I like to prep veggies in front of the TV, too - just get my big cutting board, a bowl and a knife, and turn on something to watch!
It is a lot of work--but it keeps our grocery bill down and let's us live the lifestyle we want to live.

Trying to decide if I want to be awake...I keep telling Shrek not to let me sleep so long on my days off. I see no reason to set the alarm, but...12 hours?

I was just saying the same thing to DH. He has been on holidays for the past week (until this coming Tuesday) and I have been the one sleeping in! Since his shifts are 3-11 pm and he gets home around midnight (then you need down time), he usually sleeps until 9 or 10 but since he has been getting to bed around 10, he gets up at 7 or 8 (my usual time is 7) but I am sleeping in as late as 8 or even 10!

Today we are getting ready to start the actual moving process to give us our separate spaces. I need to clean of my humongous desk as DH is taking it into Dad's old room, then I am taking Dad's tiny desk as my computer is no longer my focal point (well it is for DC of course but I don't need huge desk space for that! ). The office is becoming an area where I can sew, make cake decorations, other crafts and I can leave everything set up without having to put it away each time we want to use the dining table!

I told Shrek I'm getting to the age he needs to check on me after 8 hours...

Put a pocket mirror and stethoscope beside the bed.

LOL!!! That should get the idea across. If he checked on me, it would wake me up at a decent hour. As it is, we have missed the cool morning for bike riding...now we have to plan it for tonight.

Listen to your body. Obviously you needed the sleep. Stop fretting about it.

Back from shopping, bought ANOTHER packet of Tapioca, the last one hasn't showed up, yet. Shrek bought me new work bras...the tapioca is chilling, sure smells good.
