Almost 8:00 a.m. -- I slept late!

Shocking, isn't it? (smile)

Marilyn mistressmarilyn told me that she was up at 6 a.m., because she had to wash her hair this morning.

The clock just chimed randomly. "Hello, Mom!" (We always say it's mom talking to us when it does that...)

The yard guys were out for almost two hours yesterday in order to adjust our sprinkler system. It got screwed up last year when the construction guys put in our new walk and porch. But I had Hector fix it so it sprays in almost a continuous circle in some places. The idea is to hit the boulevard strip on the opposite side of the sidewalk in front of the house, which has no sprinkler. So we end up watering the sidewalk -- so what? If we don't mind paying for the extra water, who cares?

But I need to adjust the settings. I tried to set up automatic settings yesterday, but it's clearly not working. I haven't done it in ages -- and it's really complicated -- so I have no clue when I'll finally figure it out. (I have a couple other things on my mind right now, to say the least.)

Coming up -- my review of the new 'Pirates' movie...

(It was a huge disappointment, frankly.)

Time to get to work! I need to start organizing and sending out chunks of the script today...
