It looks to be a long day. I am tired from several nights of poor, broken sleep. It seems like it will be a quiet day in the yard. Several minor issues have come up so far but nothing too serious. It should be an easy if long and quiet day.
My wife remains in North Carolina. I really miss her. So does Katy. We were video chatting last night and Katy was going crazy seeing her mother for the first time in over a week.
Alice has been doing a wonderful job painting. She wants to paint every room in the house. She is done the bathroom, the kitchen, the living room and the master bedroom. All that is left is the small bedroom and the new bedroom. I know I should have waited until she was done painting to put the carpet down but she would have none of that. She wanted that carpet down NOW. I can only hope she doesn't get any paint on the carpet except perhaps around the edges where the trim will cover.
Did I say I miss her? More every day. I've been kind of off my feed while she's been gone. I know that's not good but what the heck I can stand to lose a few pounds anyway.
Facebook has become a real pain in the butt as I remember from before. Too much crap that I don't really give a fuck about. Too many emails. Too many notifications. Too many friends now that everyone found out I am there. My stream fills up faster than I can keep up with. I broke down and installed it on my phone but have not yet tried it. I also installed the messenger app. It pissed me off when it wanted to become my default messenger. I, of course, said no way.
Did I say I was tired? Dog tired. Simply worn out from too many dayworks. Luckily I ony have one daywork weekend a month. Weekends for us are Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The rest of the time we only have 2 day stretches. Lucky us. I can do 2 days standing on my head. 3 days however really wears me down. I don't sleep right when the house is empty. Bad dreams and all of that.
I have to find a way to make this day fly by but I know that's not going to happen if it's a quiet day. No. Quiet days drag by.
Be good people. Stay strong. Always remember the magic found in smiles and hugs and laughter. It can change your life for the better.
