Lazy Post

I am such a slug. I did not have to take the boys to school yesterday or today and both days slept in til just before noon. And you know what? It felt good!

I hate the day or two after the Spring time change but was reminded this morning of a a reason to like it. The damn dogs sleep in later. If the sun is up when LittleBrother(11) is getting ready for school, the commotion and sunlight wakes them up and they want to stay awake and squall at the bedside until I get up. But if it's dark? Those bitches burrow under their covers and give all bipeds the hairy eyeball and go back to sleep. Love it!

Let me tell you something mean that I do. If the canines go to sleep on the couch or try to hide in their beds for a nap while Sweety and I are still awake - I wake them up. Give them a shake or lift up Stinky's ear and whisper-shriek "boo!" into it. I figure if they don't nap as much before our bedtime that they will fall asleep from exhaustion when we (bipeds) are ready for our bedtime.

Oh shit. I just got a call from Sweety and he is getting to come home early enough to pick LB up from school. I must go do some things around the house so it doesn't appear that I slept til noon. Speed clean.

Speed clean? Why?
Last week I finally gave up. I had a few hours home alone and I sat on the sofa and watched tv.
The missus had left chores for me, but I said "Fuck it" and sat on my ass.
Everyone deserves a day off.
That means doing NOTHING

TV

Thomas - I did absolutely nothing yesterday and thought I should at least make an effort today. I managed to run the dishwasher and cram all of the clean laundry into the laundry basket. I'm hoping it will fold itself.

Speed clean? Wow, you make me feel like a complete bum. My cleaning schedule goes monthly. Once a month - I think about it.

I never really do anything about it.

Next time you get the urge to do speed cleaning, come over to my house!

Mybrid - I'd love to clean your house. I am nosy and would enjoy poking through your things as I cleaned.

I already know what crap is hidden around here so there's no incentive to really clean.

Sweety should hide some things for me to look for.

We have a hard time adjusting the first few days after the time change too. Do the dogs ever change to daylight time or are they always on standard time?
