Have the TV in my office on curling (sound off), listing to some great music and trudging through a whole pile of papers trying to clean this place up before we paint. When we put everything back in I want it to be neat and tidy!

Oh, yeah, I am using Dad's peddle exerciser under the desk while working. It is just peddles that can be adjusted for strength and can be used for legs or arms. I am doing the legs right now!

For some reason it made me peddle under the desk lol!

I'm having odd visions of bum-in-the-air, if you were using it for arms, "under the desk".

Shrek is watching golf...I'm going to go shower and then think of something else to do for a while. Hopefully the upstairs neighbors have left me some hot water and don't need to wash yet another load of laundry...

Waiting for dinner to cool enough that it can be transported across the sidewalk to Sprout's appartment. It smells good enough that I'm feeling impatient so I'm trying to distract myself.

From what I understand about your weather you can just set it outside for 5 minutes...

Had a small dinner party at our home today, just got all the dishes done. Everyone's gone & it feels good to have the house cleaned & all the clothes washed.

Have fun bt. Your son is very fortunate in that he has a father that cherishes the time he spends with his son. You take the time to do fun things together. You are definitely filling up his happy memory bank. Father of the Year!
