I've worked more than 36 hours in the last three days, so I wasn't terribly shocked this morning to find that I overslept. I remember getting up with the alarm, getting dressed, sitting down in the green chair in the living room to put on my shoes--and coming to 1 hour and 45 minutes later.
I let most of the rest of the morning slip by listing a few homeschool books for sale, answering email, writing up to-do lists, and watching a movie about Wal-mart with Chris. Not only did the movie completely distract me from anything work-related, but now I feel obligated to boycott Wal-mart. This isn't a big deal for me since I only shopped there three times a year anyway--but it does create a moral dilema for me with Sam's Club. Do I finish out the year with my Sam's Club membership? Or do I tear it all up and get more of the food storage order stuff mail order? Sam's Club has been a lifesaver when it comes to bulk purchases of food. What to do?
In other news, Chris and I are exploring alternatives to the fence idea having gotten some of the estimates back. While we still consider it a necessity, like the roof, if it's going to cost almost as much as a new roof, then it has to wait. We may instead purchase cheap patio furniture and an easy-up for shade so I can work on the deck and keep an eye on everyone. It doesn't solve my problem of the kids rolling balls down the hill, but it's something.
Didn't get much knitting done in the last few days. A few inches on a child's sock, that's about it. I'm hoping to do a little reading, a little knitting tonight. So I guess I'd better get back to work on the paying stuff.
