or was today extraordinarily long? It seems like it had about 4 extra hours attached some time between 10 AM and 3PM.
Today I did finally get the one load of laundry dry. I finished up some work for my job that I had been ignoring and swept the kitchen floor. I then watched "America's Next Top Model-Cycle 3" from the episode where Magdalena goes home to the final 3... I'm really finding some great things to do with my time. It bothers me because, on the one hand, I have no energy. On the other hand I used to take pride in our home...and want it to be just perfect (or as perfect as a procrastinating, lazy wife can) with a candle lit on the table and dinner going (or at least thought of) before he came home.
All of the leaves have pretty much fallen. They make a very nice crunchy sound, which blends well with Jessie's incessant barking at them. She is in "in/out/in/out/in/no-I-want-out/no-in" mode. She always does that this time of year. She loves to be outside, but then decides it is much too cold. After all, Shelties have very thin coats. (sarcasm off) Also, she must bring at least three leaves at a minimum in on her coat with her. I am constantly finding leaves. There was one in the shower this morning with me.
James is watching Titanic. It reminds me of going to see it in the theater with Leonard. I had just found out I was about 10 weeks pregnant (with James) when we went. I made it as far as the Mom telling the children the bedtime story (while knowing there was no hope for her to save them) and I had to pee. All that water and an early pregnancy bladder just don't mix.
Today has been a day. Just that. A day. No more...no less. I wish I could feel positive that this is an existence.
