Hmmmmmm......

Today is not a very good day.

The weather is that nasty hot and humid sort that just makes you sleepy. There is also the constant threat of rain which does not help and there is just enough wind to annoy the cyclist in me.

Added to this, inspite of the fact that we did not do our DIY at the weekend, one of my legs has developed a nagging ache, possibly indicating the return of my sciatica, which is not fun. Better stock up on the pills I guess! New carpets and stuff arrive this afternoon and I get the impression that my wife is getting things cleared so we can start laying the stuff this evening! I know it seems drastic but we are having a party on the 14th and she wants to get lots of things done before then. Why does this bit sound like someone else's recent blogging? :-)

I spent the morning wrestling with the mapping program I use, trying to make the road networking functions work with my own data instead of the sample data that is supplied with it. Finally managed but not without a lot of muttered curses and mumbled threats to my PC. Don't you hate the way that instructions for computer programs only help once you know what you are supposed to be doing and are totally useless as a way of learning in the first place? I will find something more entertaining to do this afternoon. Not sure what, yet.

Hmmmmm..... Must stay awake.....

Eww, that kind of humid is gross; when you sweat just from sitting up.
Even I will admit that it might be too hot to lay carpet tonight...but I have this feeling your wife and I would get along very well. :)

I think that you and my wife would get along very well indeed!

And yes, I have been all hot and sticky all day, yuck, but I think the deodorant is at least stopping me smelling :-(

I completely understand your wife's motivation. We did all kinds of crazy home improvements for the graduation party and more than likely, most people never even noticed. They mostly stayed outdoors!

Rock Chef said...

Yes, Terri, but YOU knew and that is the point, isn't it?

HA! If it wasn't for parties then nothing would get done in our house! Parties motivate our DIY projects!
