Home and Office -- a LONG Day...

Wow, did I sleep bad last night. (sigh) I really could use a good night of sleep, I'm telling you. Hopefully tonight! The clock keep chiming over and over again -- which it normally never does. Usually when it does chime, Marilyn and I say it's Mom 'talking' to us. It's interesting how often things happen that seem to support that, by the way.

Well, I got to sleep later than Marilyn did, but it wasn't all that late...

The drywall guy (I hate to admit I don't know his name, but I don't) did the touch-up and then spraying of texture on the walls today. Then those damn big fans were back on -- so today was stinky and noisy (again). Poor cats!

Sister Sue has her mentally ill son living with her currently -- she continues to need all the good thoughts and prayers others can share. The good news, though, was a positive report from her doctor this afternoon. Good thing, considering her current stress.

Marilyn came home for me mid-day so I could be at the office for some things. It was lovely to get out, as I've got awful 'cabin fever' right now. And it was fortunate, too! The internet went down today, and Kris had to walk me through fixing it over the phone.

Kris was the magic worker, but without someone who could be guided and understood what he needed, it couldn't have happened. So it worked out as it was obviously meant to. And we were back up and running pretty quickly, happily...

Marilyn and I were at work until past 8:00 p.m. Then we came home and watch some TV and ate leftover pizza (we had McDonald's for lunch). Now she's sleeping on the sofa and I'm head for the same. It's been a long day. It's been a long week! And tomorrow the painter is coming here at 8:00 a.m. (really???), in spite of my efforts to get him here later. (sigh)

Anyway, the work is on schedule. The 'mistakes' made yesterday were fixed today. And it looks like things will be done and our belongings will be moved back in on Wednesday of next week. (fingers crossed)

I'm too tired to write more -- or go and read, as I'd like to. Forgive me for being so absent here when it comes to reading and commenting. Hopefully that's going to change soon!
