Like getting ready for vacation, only not.

I've been cleaning for days, so the house will be spotless.  I've been cooking like crazy, so that I've got easily accessible meals.  Wireless Internet, DVD player and PVR are arranged for the bedroom.  There's a huge pile of books, waiting to be read.  I'm contemplating taking up beading jewelry again.

I worked my last day today for  the next nine weeks.
If we don't get another dump of snow between now & Thursday, I won't have to shovel again until fall.

As an aside, if you enjoy messing with your dogs' heads, try passing their leash over to a friend.  The 6 of us (2 people and four dogs) have walked together regularly for a few years,  but getting Tallulah used to walking while my friend Jen is holding her leash has been hilarious.

Tonight I made the frame for an ottoman, and hope to upholster it tomorrow.  (I'm guessing that reclining chairs are a little hard on recovering stomach muscles.)

The granny panties have not yet been acquired.

If you were going to be stuck inside your house for a minimum of 3-4 weeks, what would you do to prepare?


  1. Booze! But you're not a drinker, so I'll say laptop!!! Sending you tons of good thoughts and prayers for a safe surgery and speedy recovery!

  2. Clean sheets & the Turner Classic Movie channel.

  3. Books! paper and audio. Lots of 'em! And a laptop ... you can blog, play video games. The time will pass so quickly. Hugs & prayers for a speedy recovery!!!

  4. A laptop, an iPod, books, fluffy pillows and a down comforter.

    Oh and a medicine man to keep the snow away and the surgery safe.

  5. Laptop, kindle and netflix. In that order.

    Oh, and cookie dough.

  6. Stock up on sweet wine and books! Sending you the bestest good vibes for a fast recovery!
