I did this

This one is finished. I took another picture because last ones were no good.

I put the finishing touches on this one. Now it is ready for it's final laundering. I'll probably wait so it doesnt have to go alone.
I got started on this one,

and put the last wax and dye on this. Now it needs rinsing and was removal.

I have been reading Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet. Wow. I'm on page 700 and something. It's a good read.

Then I saw Fierce Creatures with John Cleese, Michael Palin, Kevin Kline and Jamie Lee Curtis. That was silly. It's a good thing I didn't make Joseph watch it.

I am watching Battlestar Galactica on DVD. I am having a good time with that. I had thought I wanted to see Sex and the City. We don't get any cable TV, so I have never even had a chance to see it. It was so popular I thought it must be good. I watched the whole first DVD, 6 episodes. It was boring.

After that, I decided to watch House, so I got the first 6 episodes on DVD. Much more enjoyable. I liked it, except that it made me remember how hard it can be to get medical care when you get lost in the medical insurance game. I don't know if I want to watch more of it. It's a good show, but it gives me Brain Itch.

When the season of Battlestar is finished, I will watch another season of Smallville. I'm starting to mis Clark Kent and John Glover. And I want to see what will happen with Arthur Curry. With a name like that, I thought he would re-appear more often with more significance. Was there a comic book character by that name? I thought it was the name of the boot camp that Johnny Rico went to in Heinlein's Starship Troopers.

So how can I get so much done and still read enormous tomes and watch TV? Simple. Insomnia.

What's up with your insomnia? Have you always had it?

I absolutely hate when I cannot sleep. Fortunately, I only have small bouts of insomnia that go away after one week...usually.

Looks like you are, at least,able to put your inability to sleep to good use, although I am sure that you would rather be sleeping.

LOL!!! I am almost done now!

Hey you...it wasn't me who asked about attachment parenting, but while we are on the subject...I do things differently too.

Every family has to develop a lifestyle that works for them, right? Thank goodness we are not all "textbook!"

I was going to ask you if your son was adopted or from a previous marriage. He is very handsome ( I never know what to say about boys!)
How old was he when you adopted him?
