So, up and at 'em at 4. The wife is on a day trip to see her sisters in Manhattan. As a Cornell employee she can ride down and back for something absurdly cheap like 30 bucks round trip. I suppose most people go to shop and dinner and museums, and she will, but she is lucky as both her sisters are New Yorkers. I get to hold down the fort. I'd go with, but it would be hard to explain to the dog sitter how to take care of Jack, who is very elderly mentally and physically and it takes some understanding. I volunteered to drive so the car would not be marooned on campus until she returns at one am, and I am thinking this may give me a chance to go down to the bakery and sit around like a Parisian (or Ithacan) reading the paper and eating a cookie the size of a plate (small plate, but a plate indeed) before going to the library. I dream big, don't I? And maybe episodes of The Office later and Ghostbusters!
This of course, would be in addition to work and cleaning. I am the house husband, and recent rains mean the downstairs is paved in mud, and now our pal kcinnova says she is desperate for plates, so I should make those.
AND I had a message from some strangers who found the blog and want to visit and do a school paper on me. Ha! I am so boring!!!!!! We'll see if they call.
