i'm SO glad it is today instead.
yesterday i was SO tired and cranky and miserable.
no fun for anyone really.
but i came home and took a nap for about an hour and woke up less liable to eat people's brains.
(it is a little-known fact that zombies are more likely to sit quietly without eating brains if they have recently had a nap. Now GETTING them to actually take a nap...that's the tricky part)
i have so much more energy to face my day today. i'm less bitchy. it's really better for everyone if i nap. and shower. and eat regularly. ;)

john and darla came over again to help yesterday. they are godsends.
we got the whole basement primed. it looks great! there are some runny parts where ross sprayed too thick, but they can be sanded down. pictures to come. it was too wet to take any last night and we had to plastic the cats off from the basement.
today will be the big clean up. and putting electrical covers on the outlets and such, and framing up the fireplace and cutting concrete board and maybe some red oak for the facing. i think it's going to look really sharp when it's done. the inspector has been pushed back to thursday. this is very good.

i also need to call and schedule my tire replacement. i need 2 new ones in back and a new thermostat because the one i have isn't heating the car promptly enough. i know so little about cars that i would probably just put up with the extra 10 minutes it takes for the car to heat, but ross informs me that this is very bad for the car, as it can cause the workings of the car to heat at different speeds and increase wear and tear as a result. regardless i need to get the whole thing fixed before going to chicago.

i believe we are going to leave the basement white for a while. just breathe for a month or so and re-assess our finances before deciding how much further we are going to go. it would REALLY help if we had our tax returns back....but volt sucks and is not sendingout W2's until the 30th, which, btw, is illegal in minnesota.

i am hoping to get to the gym tomorrow for the first time in a week and a half. corrin was going to go with me, but she cancelled. it is probably for the best. it will allow me to go earlier and then have the evening to help with whatever at home.

i have been snagging small moments to knit my slippery blue socks. i am VERY pleased with how they are turning out so far.

i'm still expecting these to take a long time. i don't have much time to work on them.
