My husband is finally coming today from his family visit and boys' get-together in Chicago. He has been gone for almost two weeks, and I have had to fend for myself. It's been a challenge to fix my own meals and run the household without him. Of course, I haven't done anything really desperate like do my own laundry; I'm just piling that up.
I've also been in charge of the remote control. We generally watch the same TV shows because we share similar tastes but I know that watching The History of the Eagles on Netflix was not a documentary my husband would enjoy, which is probably why he never told me it was on Showtime. I don't know exactly why he doesn't appreciate the Eagles but perhaps it's because he was in grade school when they were hugely popular. Or, that they are not Peter Gabriel or David Byrne.
I moved to California, btw, when Hotel California was released. Critics may complain that their music may have been meaningless but it doesn't mean there is something wrong with feeling inspired or feeling good about yourself and others around you.
When "Part One" flashed across the screen, that was a signal the documentary was much longer in length than I had allotted time to watch, but I ignored that signal until it was way past my bedtime, and there I was still watching Part Two. The cats and I danced for a bit.
Then I perused my iPad and noticed a price increase on a home for sale in Sacramento. How did that happen, I wondered? That home had been on the market going on 3 months. You can read more in my personal blog today about why Raising the Sales Price When a Home is Overpriced is a Bad Idea.
Come on . . . I'm standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, such a fine sight to see, it's a girl my lord in flatbed Ford slowing down to take a look at me.
