While I was out...

Last week I decided that I needed something productive to do while I was watching TV, so I got out a puzzle that Chris and I had started, but never finished. I even went to Walmart to get a folding table for the event (was charged three times, voided twice, refunded twice, then actually purchased the next day...very complicated business).

I had been working for several days and only had two small sections to complete.

Yesterday morning I went to the gym for an hour and a half. Chris had gotten home from work about and hour before I left, so I left the dog out. She usually crawls under the bed while he is asleep.

This is what I found when I got home.

Both animals greeted me with excitement as if to say, "Look what we did! Isn't it great?"

I lost a good pair of shoes, several puzzle pieces, and the will to go on.

College degrees get you no where!

North Carolina has been enjoying a rather warm and dry summer thus far, and what that means is that our grass is starting to die. Chris has been meaning to water the lawn for a while, but his schedule has made it difficult--you need to do it either early morning or late at night, and he has been at work for both.

I told him that I could take care of it since I am home all the time. He tried to explain to me the intricacies of the sprinklers while we were in line at lunch today, but I'll admit, I ignored him. How hard can it be to turn on a sprinkler?


I'm wet.

The lawn is still dry.
