Friday Featurette #370

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionThe weekend is finally here and we are so ready. Hopefully, we’ll get over the final hump and be fully recovered by Monday. I’ve got a busy Saturday planed; but The Wife should be able to stay in and relax. A quiet weekend or, in my case, a quiet Sunday, is very timely. And, The Wife has Monday off so it’s a 3-day weekend for her.

Have a great weekend.

Traditional Thursday #370

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airWe are back in the saddle today in more ways than one. It feels good to be back. I don’t know what we caught; but I hope to never have it again. The only “good” thing is that we really didn’t miss anything fun as we’re in the midst of a dark dreary winter. It hasn’t been bitter cold. But still not the sort of weather that we would have wanted to do anything outside.

Wednesday Weirdness #370

On Monday, I saw a driver make a U-turn on a one-way street and head into oncoming traffic. There were a lot of cars coming so I don’t understand how they got confused. There was far too much traffic coming for them to make it to the next cross street. So, they had to pull over and wait until they could make a second U-turn and go the right way. Luckily, they didn’t cause an accident although there were several near misses.

Tuesday Two For #370

The Wife standing naked in front of the mirror drying her hairWe are both finally back to life after fighting a bug that wouldn’t go away. Neither of us is fully recovered. But we are definitely on the mend and feel better than we have in weeks. Now the only thing we have to fight is the winter blues. Fortunately, though the weather has been dark and dreary, it hasn’t been bitter cold like it usually is.

Monday Monologue #370

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
  • The football games this past weekend were very entertaining. I don’t like the drama when it’s a team we follow, but it is fun when we’re watching more casually.
  • It’s definitely weird being in the year 2020. As was pointed out somewhere recently, 2050 is now closer than 1980. And that is a year that we both remember well.
  • We still need to take down the Christmas Tree and the rest of our Holiday decorations. We typically leave up the tree the week after Christmas; but weren’t doing anything extra this past weekend.
  • We are still sick; so, we probably won’t be posting much until we both recover. It’s very unusual for us both to be sick at the same time. And hopefully it will be a long, long time before it happens again.

Friday Featurette #369

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs togetherOne of the (few) good things about dog-sitting is that they are non-shedding breeds. And since they don’t eat things we don’t have to dog-proof the house. So, if they aren’t barking, and you don’t stumble over their toys, you can forget that they are around. But we are still counting down the days.

Have a great weekend.

Traditional Thursday #369

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airToday felt like a Monday; but was actually a Thursday which is a good thing since I am still sick. And now The Wife is starting to get sick too. Having to go out and walk dogs doesn’t help either. At least we have a fenced back yard so they don’t have to go on a walk for every potty break.

Wednesday Weirdness #369

Wee have not one but two dogs staying with us while their owner is traveling on vacation. They’re well behaved for dogs. But they are still dogs and do dog stuff like bark at people who walk past. It’s going to be an interesting week.

Monday Monologue #369

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • I’ve caught a bad head cold. Not unusual for this time of year; but relatively rare for me. I’ve been fortunate to seldom get sick for most of my life. Of course, that makes me extra miserable when I am.
  • We got outside and rowed on Saturday. After almost two months of being stuck inside, it was good to be back on the water.
  • It still seems a bit weird working while The Wife is off. It’s OK since there’s not a lot to do since it’s rainy and dreary outside. But, it is strange.
  • I got a new fitness tracker with much-improved battery life for Christmas. Unlike my old one, it’s still going strong after five days. Great to eliminate a nuisance that I didn’t even know I had.
