OK, I admit it, this is a totally random posting. I've found that boring repetitious activity is good for thinking ... and just for zoning out. I chose the latter when I decided to take the remainder of the Thanksgiving weekend and strip the wallpaper from our master bathroom. It took the help of our youngest daughter and my parents to finish the job in two days (it's a pretty big room).
I've made a pact with my beloved husband: if I ever get the "brilliant" idea to wallpaper a room again, he's to lock me in it until the feeling passes.
There ... it's in writing. All that's left is to notarize it!
