I am fairly certain that my nine-pound bundle of joy is beating me with a blunt instrument in my sleep. Yesterday I awoke with what can only be described as a "twisty" feeling in my lower back, and by noon it had progressed to actual pain.
Now I know that I am a fine physical specimen of what happens to you when your most strenuous activity of the day is pulling the cover off your Ginghers, but this is ridiculous. Today I am shuffling around the house muttering "Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow" as I contemplate how much trouble it would be to put the damn dog into a night night cage at bedtime. The current state of affairs is that he is lifted gently up onto the big girl sleigh bed and then he nuzzles down under the covers for his shut-eye. This leaves me to contort myself into odd shapes so that I don't disturb him. God forbid.
Well tonight I'm putting the proverbial foot down and demanding that I get more than a scant two and a half inches on which to perch for the night. If he insists on taking up that much room, I can accommodate him quite nicely by sleeping in the guest room. (Insert obvious eye-rolling here. Yes, I KNOW he's a dog but unfortunately HE doesn't know he's a dog. So until somebody explains this to him, I am better off just working with the current state of affairs around here and calling it a day).
I'm smacking myself in the head that my stitchy progress is sooooo small these last few days. I don't feel like I've had any good extended time in the Happy Chair to get this piece done, so I need to change that immediately.
(For the record, I'm blaming all of you. If you wouldn't insist on having so many lovely things to look at on your blogs, then I wouldn't be compelled to read them for hours every day and I could get on with things. So stop it. Please.)
The baseboards did not get touched yesterday, but I did manage to write a Spring Cleaning list in my head that will certainly be useful once I decide to start said Spring Cleaning. (I'm aiming for the Fall of 2010, in case you're interested.)
In the meantime, methinks I need to plant my heiney and get a'movin on this project!
