Yikes Martha. I bet that is one check you didn't mind writing.

Easy care baby. I have a grand-daughter the same age, but she wakes many times each night. Babies sure have their own personalities clearly formed early on.

During football season sex is only at half time or after the game .

You must be a really dedicated fan. But would it hurt to show the guy a little flexibility once in a while and work something in during a commercial break?

Diehard, wasn't that the episode on "Three and a half men" where their mom marries Teddy?

This thread is turning back into "what did you not do today." I like that! Today I didn't do that upper body work that was on my to-do list. Tomorrow, I won't do items # 8-12.

Did a lot of exercise today. Had to work off some fatty seafood meals. Oh and glorious football must be watched with a fine beverage of intoxicating variety.

Took most of the week off. DW and I are repainting the kitchen and a couple of closets in FIL's house, SIL took him to their vacation spot in SC to get him out of the way while the painting is going on. We got two coats on the ceiling and one coat on the cutting-in on the walls and around the kitchen cabinets.

This is the homestretch for working on FIL's house, an ongoing project since last April. We've repainted most of the basement, two of the three bedrooms, the dining room, living room, hallway, and redid the hall bathroom. Wednesday all the windows get replaced, SIL is paying for that. He doesn't want the master bedroom painted, and if someone else wants to redo the master bath they're welcome to it. After this week we're done.

Next month I'm buying a motorcycle. Saw some guys riding today - it's 18 degrees F this morning! I'm not into frostbite and hypothermia so mine will stay in the shed until April.

Went out for breakfast this morning....3 egg, ham, cheese, and spinach omelet, with a side order of American fries, and buttered wheat toast! Yum!!

Then home to work in the gardens cleaning up plant debris and the last few containers. Piled everything on the compost pile, and threw a tarp over it for the winter......the pile is 5' x 10', and is now 4' high. The bottom 18" is finished compost, but I didn't get around to getting it moved out of there, and into the finished compost bin this year.....but, hey....Spring's coming!

After that I mounted extruded aluminum angle into the outside window frames of my workshop, and installed the new storm windows. Built the workshop in '85, and finally got around to having storms made for it last week.....better late than never!

Went outside and watched the ISS and Space Shuttle fly over at 4:58pm, then came in for supper.....Tuna casserole with green peas, smashed taters, and a nice lettuce salad. Yum!

Gonna finish surfin' the 'net, and head for Lazyboy and the TV!

I find it fascinating that I can step out my front door, and see it fly over at about 17,500 mph, and about 240 miles above the earth, with just my naked eye...no telescope or binoculars needed. Amazing!

Lazy day with my dog, reading the NY Times and some other stuff on line. Watching some episodes of "Mad Men". Fantastic program! It was one of those windy days today that i dislike so I didn't go out much. Threw a ball up the stairs so my dog could get some exercise. Can't remember what else except that I made pancakes for dinner.
