Time Alone

Sharla has the camera and is visiting family, besides I would not just put a picture of me in here, so I don't have a photo. I am going to redo the kitchen cabinets while they are gone so hopefully they look a lot better when they return. I don't have plan B yet in case of disaster but I will figure that out if needs be. Must stay busy! Here are some reminders:
  1. Being idle stinks, it is always better to be busy
  2. Immediate family is great and a necessity! Extended family is nice and a luxery.
  3. Appreciate when your wife is around because you miss her company if she is not.
  4. Don't make a mess and you don't have to clean one up. That is my goal concerning dishes and clothes. Kind of hard with clothes. Maybe I can make it work :) . I can always reuse dishes!
  5. Friends who willingly give their counsel when I need it are life savers. I would hate to pick colors for the cabinets without better judgement. Thanks
  6. In general LIFE IS ALWAYS BETTER WHEN A WOMAN IS AROUND! (some cases may not meet this criteria) Extended "man time" is good in short bursts only. A good woman makes the best man better.
  7. Absence does make the heart grow fonder. If you absence yourself to become fonder, do it only as long as necessary. If you are absenced for a reason (11 days), make the most of it (cabinets, garage, yard, garden, caulking bathroom, ...) and anticipate the return :).

Jeff, if you're going to post, you need to get your own ID. This post makes no sense when it says it was posted by Sharla.
