So... Who's Blowing Today (12/26th) Off?


The wife and I are staying home today. I'm sure she'll be busy as she always is. I won't be. If I do anything I'll play with some of the new toys I get or maybe, just maybe, go to the shop to hang the retractable cord and air hose. But the air hose hanging actually sounds like work.

Took off most of Friday and today, working on our new house.

I had planned to be off for about two weeks but an opportunity fell in my lap I have to take advantage of.

Stayed home this morning to clean up around the house a little bit. Between everyone being sick for the last two weeks, my dental issue the last few days and Christmas, the place was a mess. Now I'm heading into work for a half day since the weather is decent.

I am not blowing today off. I scheduled a full day on the couch and I am killing it. Have't stuck to the days plan this well in weeks. Although there was a little snag earlier when I couldn't find the remote.

Plans are to spend the day in pajamas and just chill out in the solace of our home. Just had my third cup of coffee and watching 1960's tv shows. We have been nothing but on the go for the last couple weeks.

Got the week off. I've done some new lights in the house. About to go down into the shop and finish wiring it and setting it up for a few shop projects coming up next month.
