Week Two

OMG this remodeling stuff is really getting old. We are trapped in our bedroom with our dog, Lucy, and starting to notice a few things.... Like my husband has this weird chewing sound that could be a jaw or teeth, but is LOUD. My dog is licking way too much down on the other end. My bedspread is starting to look like a dirty table cloth. My husband always leaves his dirty dishes in the bathroom. It has snowed here in the mountains, and my contractor's guy, that is demolishing my house, does not have snow tires, and lives in Reno. The highway patrol wouldn't let him through this morning and wondered, out loud, how he had made it that far. Luckily the sun came out and they let him through. We could go somewhere, but we have a dog, and she is not always welcome. We could take a trip to the coast, or wine country, but we need to be here to make sure things are moving along, making sure our contractor, tile guy, electrician, etc. have everything they need right here, when they need it. Go(b) forbid they are DELAYED.

Bless your hearts! It has to be a little like some friends who were on a sail boat trip around the world. The boat started out as a beautiful 40 ft sloop but shrunk after a few month by 6 feet each day at sea. The couple, (happy together still) almost pitched each other overboard by the end of their voyage. Closeness either makes you closer or puts criminal thoughts in places in your brain you never new existed. LOL Get some better wine!

Great advice, jo-mamma!

I know what you mean about finding all those little idiosyncrasies when in close company with someone tooo long, esp your hubbie. Mike does something sooo unfamiliar with his mouth, too.

I totally know what chewing thing you are talking about- also your dog licks WAY TOO LOUDLY. I am SO GLAD I am not trapped in that room too! :)
