Two attempts...

I made two attempts at waking up this morning and both times I had to go back to sleep. So, I guess this is my third attempt, but this one is successful and I'm managing to stay awake. I'm really done sleeping. While I really admire the way I sleep nowadays, I don't want to get into the habit of having to sleep late each morning. At least, not yet. Not when I still have to go to creative therapy this coming week. After that I can sleep as late as the dog allows it and that can be pretty late. The dog has an iron bladder, after all.

He didn't when the Exfactor still lived here. Every morning at 7:30 he would stand there whining by the bed, wanting to be let out, and very often it was the Exfactor who did the honors. And every evening at 9 pm it was the same story, but not any more now. Since he just lives with me, he goes out pretty much when I determine it and he never wants to go out in the evenings anymore. He last goes out at 6 pm and then he goes out some time in the morning the next day, whenever I have my act together. I could be at 8 am or at 10 am. He's okay as long as he's had his piddle out back. I think I ignore him more than the Exfactor did. I'm not there at his every beck and call. I don't neglect him, mind you. He just doesn't get on my nerves as quickly.

I'm thinking about changing templates. I've been looking at this one for a week now and I wonder if there are any other good ones I may like. I am going to visit the Final Sense website in a little while and look at all their templates to see if I can find anything of interest. Yes, go ahead and call me a fickle woman, but when there's so much choice out there, you can't help but want to try out different things. As much as I don't like change in my life, I do like change in my blog, although I wouldn't mind changes in my living room lots of times. I used to change things around all the time, but I've lost the stamina and muscle power to do it. I've also got limited possibilities in this living room, but now that I think of it and look around me, I can see some alternative ways to decorate the living room too and it would motivate me to get out the vacuum cleaner and the dust rag. Ha, how very smart of me.

Well, you'll all know how I'm going to spend this Sunday. It will be full of changes made all over the place. That's what I'm in the mood for. I like making things look different and turning things around and making alternative living spaces. I'm always full of curiosity about how that can work out.

Alright, I'm going to work. If it turns out well, I will take pictures and post them. Keep your fingers crossed.

I love this new look. I have been admiring it but always think of something more important to say and forget to comment on the new look.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Nora. Third time lucky!

I think it's great you have the animals to give you some routine.

I'll be interested to see how you change things around!

Wow, that is an iron bladder! Our dogs needs regular outings but I guess we're used to it.

I love updating my template too. Yours always look very nice.

Hello! Just found your blog and it looks very nice to me :o)
Lucky you with a lie-in. It's my children who wake me up at the moment: "Mummy, it's day time now. Time to get up!"
