like that old song title!
3:30AM- Off work!
3:48- Home; pull her car out, my truck in, her car back in.
3:56- Quietly slip through our bedroom to go to basement and swap the stuff in my pockets for the clean bibs I'll wear today and put two pair in the wash so I have enough to get through the rest of the week.
4:05- Back through the bedroom, try to convince dog to stay there and lay on the nice soft carpet instead of following me in hopes of getting a Milk Bone.
4:08- Take a melatonin to try and make sure I can go to sleep ASAP.
4:10- Turn on converter box to try to figure out what's on tonight so I can set up VCR's.
4:20- Wiggle mouse to turn off SETI and start browser then go start dishwasher and close door so it doesn't wake Dottie.
(at various times through this I'm also trying to convince cat to quit "erwauling" so he doesn't wake Dottie up. If the door to our bedroom is closed he yowls; last night if it was open he did as well...)
4:25- Sit down here with 2 slices of raisin bread to go through e-mail, news and a few blogs...
4:45- Print "For Better or for Worse" for Dottie to read this morning.
5:05- Turn SETI back on, put bibs in dryer, brush teeth, go to bed.
Noon- Clock goes off so I can turn on cell for when Dottie calls at lunch. Reset clock for 1PM.
12:10- House phone rings; it's Dottie- I slept through the cell ringing.
1:00- Clock goes off, pop caffeine tab and reset it for 1:30.
1:30- Clock goes off, turn on kettle and reset for 1:42.
1:42- Make latte; discover furnace pilot has blown out, relight, wiggle mouse and settle in here for a bit
2:15- Done with post, time to go out and work on garage 'til between 3:30 and 4, then get ready for work.
Tomorrow is my last work day this week. Several contracts ago we got Veteran's Day off, but they let GM decide which day we actually get to be off...this year it's the 16th. I have 3 vacation days next week as Dottie's birthday is Tuesday; I'll be off even though she has to work as she gave up her Monday and Tuesday to go with me when we went to Wyoming to take Jordan's car up on the flatbed. She is off on Wednesday so she can make the pies for Thanksgiving dinner.
Looking forward to 10 days off work! I'll be in and out, but can't promise anything regular...please be well and may life be kind!
