Less Than Meets the Eye

I found out last week that my company is giving us President's Day off this year and since daisy_knotwise works for a bank, she also has the day off. Unfortunately, the cleaning woman arrived on schedule at 8:00 AM, so a relaxing morning of sleeping in was not in the cards, especially for Gretchen who actually opens the door when the cleaning woman arrives.

However, I've managed to get my hair cut, pick up soda and bagels at the Jewel, have lunch with Gretchen, get the oil changed in my car, pick up a brisket at Sam's Club (because it was $2.79 per pound there instead of the $4.99 that the Jewel wanted) along with some cleaning supplies and paczki, read the newspaper, remove the second stereo cabinet in the bedroom that contains the cassette decks that we haven't used in some time, move clothes from the closet in the library to the closet in the spare bedroom to make room to hide the second stereo cabinet, vacuum up the incredible supply of dust bunnies that were behind the two stereo cabinets and the TV in the bedroom, and slide everything down the wall so the mirror and lamp actually look like they were meant to be there.

Gretchen was -- I hope, despite the vacuuming! -- taking a nap downstairs during the bedroom rearrangement. We'll see how she likes it.

I may not have gotten as much done today as I might have hoped, but I haven't mastered that superluminal speed trick yet. Maybe later.
