Housesitting: Day 2

Posted: May 25th, 2010 | Author: | Tags: | No Comments »

(I know, I know… I’m on Day 4 right now, which means, not surprisingly, I’m behind on this. Oh well.)

  • Last night, I dreamt that I was in high school again or something, and that because we had a house all to ourselves, we threw a massive party (apparently, it didn’t occur to my subconscious that we already have an apartment all to ourselves and that we can do that anytime we wanted). It was like the type you see in movies, beer everywhere, people everywhere (i.e. not the type of party I’ve ever thrown, if you can believe that! …you can.). But toward the end of the dream, it dawned on me that I was responsible for cleaning the place up the next day. My dream self was bummed.
  • But when I woke up this morning, I was happy to report that it was all in my head, that the house is as pristine as when I went to bed. However, I still woke up with a headache. Dumb.
  • I mentioned last night that we moved the dog’s bed from the living room to the basement, where he slept for the first half of the night — before going off to bark at squirrels at about 4 AM. Well, I come upstairs this morning, and he’s lying in the ottoman next to where the bed should be, as if to say “it was here yesterday, where could it have gone?!”
  • I moved it back but now he’s on the bed in the master bedroom and won’t budge.
  • Tons, TONS of books in every room in the house. Fiction, literature (there’s a difference!), politics, science… everything. This is how my house is going to be.
  • Tons, TONS of birds around in the back yard. On first count, four birdfeeders. UPDATE: New estimates have the number of visible birdfeeders at 6.
  • Watched The Lion King tonight — on VHS! The cats were in the room the entire time; they weren’t at all interested. Disappointing.
