It was a lovely weekend, one that kept me going pretty much non-stop until about 5:30 yesterday evening. Holy canoli, am I ever feeling it now. I convinced myself that taking a nap while I was trying to drive into work was probably not the wisest choice I've made, but it was tempting. If AC didn't have the thermostat set at 60 I'd probably doze off right now (no exaggeration, it's COLD in here!). The way I feel right now is serving as an excellent reminder as to why I thought to tell the bosses that I would be going down to part time at the end of June, rather than waiting for the surgery. That puts me at full time still this week, training the folks that are taking over my shift two days a week next week, and then I won't be working here Fridays or Tuesdays anymore (which conveniently coincides with my knitting classes!) It means I'll spend this week really cleaning out everything from my desk that I don't want other folks going through, but that's fine.

But yesterday was Father's Day, and in honor, GB started his day by crawling down the hall and climbing onto the couch, while DSS made him coffee.

I did convince DSS to rinse out the coffee pot that gets put away into cabinets (we live with a cat that can open every cabinet in the house) to try to minimize the cat hair my husband ingested. If you look closely, you'll see "rinse it off" only counted for the inside, because the caraffe looks a bit... furry.... It was also wildly strong coffee, because DSS said he was using the full 12 cups of water, and actually only used about half that, so when I told him how much coffee to put in, and thoughtfully made it slightly strong, GB actually got more than double the dosage of coffee.... sort of like espresso, only not.

After his cup of espre coffee, Father's Day continued with Oscar getting to cuddle on the couch with Daddy.

After that, we had lunch at my parents' house with my brother, husband, step-son and (obviously) my parents. At GB's request, I made Jalapeno bread

(size 8 needle there for size comparison, it's a 2 pound loaf)

It was a lovely day, but the day before had also been busy (errand running, and we saw Batman Begins, which GB is very glad to note they left opened for a sequel) and when I finally got home at 5:30 I could barely move. Things haven't improved much since.

Do you think I could learn how to sleep with my eyes staring at audio files on the computer so no one would notice if I took a nap right now?

Jalapeno bread? Is it spicy?

I really love that you use knitting needles for size comparison in all things. Because that's what we know!

I've discovered (inadvertently, really) that no one in my office notices I'm asleep as long as I appear as though I'm looking at the computer screen and have my hand on the mouse. Try it!
