Do you do laundry in marathon sessions of "laundry day", or a load at a time every day or two?

Well, for a marathon laundry day, I could see that you could turn on a space heater and warm it up on Saturday when you were gonna be out there. Might not be worth it for just one load.

OT: We got one of those oil-filled heater that looks like a radiator (we got ours at Lowe's) . It has a simple 24-hour clock with tabs you click to have it turn itself on and off at pre- determined times. It might work great to take the chill of the garage when you do laundry, and it is much safer than a space heater.LSA

Watching X2 again, here... Jean's about to needlessly sacrifice herself. (sigh) the comic book was soooo much better.

But the movie is still pretty good.

I'm watching "Trigun". Pretty bizarre anime... the outlaw gunman who manages to destroy towns just by showing up is a wimp who likes donuts and freaks out at the sight of blood.

I don't actually think he would do any damage. I mainly need to make sure, and show, that we can keep him out. He did get in earlier this evening on somebody else's account. We were lucky to find it right away, and it was only for a few minutes. He was writing a strange apology message to somebody else in the group when we pulled the plug.

I probably shouldn't say much else here. [sigh]

It's already filled with oil, you just plug it in and the oil is electrically heated. The oil doesn't burn so you never have to replace it.

Good morning!

I didn't listen to much of the debate last night (should be able to listen to a little more tonight), but from what little I heard, I thought Cheney did a great job!

We had a hard frost this morning...and I still don't have bulbs in the ground. I sure hope I didn't miss the deadline again! Tonight I have to pick yet ANOTHER new spot and hope it's diggable. Is that a word? I may also scoop out the gravel in my original spot and fill the hole with soil. Dunno what I'll do with the gravel, though. Chuck it down the hill behind the house, I guess.

ohfercryinoutloud...nobody told me we were movin'...where's muh room?

In other news...turns out muh Monday experience was a bit more of a mini-drama than I knew. I was really out of it, but I knew my neighbor picked me up instead of my brother-in-law. Apparently after I was already under wife found out they didn't want me alone at all and asked b-i-l to pick me up a little later. He completely bailed because he had to be somewhere at 3:00 p.m. (I was ready to go at 1:00). Anyway, neighbor stepped in and brought me home. B-i-l hasn't even acknowledged it, even though wife spent 30 minutes of her class time arranging for back up and almost had to cancel a class...

And thus, our continued frustration in caring for Nana. Five siblings and assorted spouses. We're the only dependable ones...and that's a little scary.

Wife will be talking to the rehab center today. SWorker said that they can only keep her until they've taken her as far as they can with therapy. I'm thinkin' if she can't get out of bed by herself they ain't takin' her far enough...we'll see.

And, while I'm mostly better, I'm still waking up 1-2 times a night with the cough. Wife hasn't quite got the hint that saying "drink some hot tea" isn't helpful when I can't breathe...

Oddly though, I'm in decent spirts today...didn't see all of the debate but loved it when Cheney said "the first time I've met you was on this stage tonite." Scuse the graphical nature of the comment, but as a friend of mine used to say, Edwards is "slicker than snot on a doorknob..."
