Day 7742

It's interesting how my perception of a "normal" day is so fluid and yet I think of it as a fixed concept.

In the last four weeks, I have had someone extra crashing at my house so he is here when I get home. This has become my "normal".

This week, Emily is off from school for Spring Break, I have to take Friday as my extra day off instead of Thursday and, after today, 80s will be at work by the time I get home until after I go to bed. So this week is distinctly not-normal and is consequently making me uneasy.

Next week, Emily will be back to school, I will be back to my schedule and 80s will have a more certain schedule. It will take a very short time before that becomes "normal" and I'll be more easy in my mind when that happens.

Then I will know when I can add in exercise, quilting and reading... even my logic puzzles will have to find a new (or new/old) slot in my weekly routine.

I like routines- they make me comfortable.

In other news, I am playing with hairsticks again so I'll have new pretties to show off soon and the hooks should be here today for my window scarf for the library. I may even take a little time tonight to make and hang the scarf and get that project signed off on.

Since the weather has turned out nicely for the weekend, I am also planning on stripping, refinishing and mending the dining room table. If I don't do it soon, I won't have a choice of when because one of the legs is getting very loose again and I can't just keep tightening it- it's going to fall off if I don't do something definitive. Gorilla Glue FTW!

Gorilla Glue is becoming my third 'must-have' in my toolbox of items no home should be without. #1 is duct tape- for things that move that shouldn't. #2 is WD-40- for things that don't move that should.
