The Devil's Nails
Friday, September 23, 2011
I didn't get much sleep last night. Hubby grumbled that by the time he gets back from feeding Reek I am always asleep and he's right, I usually am, so I made an effort to stay awake last night and watch some TV with him. At bedtime he ended up stubbing his toe and tore another toe nail off. I wear house shoes but my son and hubby won't. It does little good to lecture them. At any rate the toenail-mangle started a rant about the lack of progress settling his mother's estate. You know how warped men are. One has nothing to do with the other but at any rate I understand his frustration and tried to sooth the savage beast. It was just about as effective as trying to pet a Tasmanian Devil. Taz had no part of it. My window of opportunity to sleep passed and I ended up unable to sleep most of the night.
It was in the upper 40s this morning and I did not want to get up. We are having a lot of fog. I stayed in bed until the last possible moment then had to rush to get breakfast made, Reek fed, and my bath. Hubby helped me get things set up in the pole barn for laundry. My son was off and we did 6 loads.
We also had to clean the 6 pets cages too. Reek and Porkie live alone and are needy and they get cold so I bought Reek a cloth tent for his cage and Porkie a cloth house and they sleep in them. Today they needed washed and they don't like their bags to be taken away so I have to wash them quickly and get them back ASAP. Reek was trying to get in his while I was still hanging it and he was shoving me away with his little foot. LOL.
My son and I ended up vacuuming and cleaning the bath too and then I had my outdoor chores to do and 2 more meals to fix. So I had a full day and I'm wiped out.
For those who asked what new shows we have watched - We watched "Unforgettable" and they lied. I can forget it. LOL. I didn't bond with the characters. I watched "Revenge" and it was better. "Charlie's Angels" - was goofy. "Person of Interest" - hubby and I both liked it - the most of any of the new ones. "Prime Suspect" - I thought it was okay - hubby didn't care for it. And A Gifted Man - it was okay to me. Hubby thought it was hokey.
The sun came out some but we had thunder and rain off and on. The hummers are thinning out. A turtle must have came and ate today but I missed it.
