Music of the moment - "Such Great Heights" by the Postal Service
"And when you scan the radio, I hope this song will guide you home."
That song is for TFN, who I dropped off at the airport this morning as she heads off for a 24-day business trip.
We've never been apart for that long before, but in preparation of this trip, I made a list of items that I wanted to accomplish, including, but not limited to:
1. Cleaning my office
2. Putting trim around the front door
3. Cleaning the basement
4. Staining the deck
5. Writing a story I've had in mind
6. Cleaning the basement
7. A lot of biking
And several other things, too. A lot of stuff, but not too much to accomplish in a month.
Instead, while helping TFN pack last night, I slipped carrying some clothes down the stairs. Sprained ankle. Now, in a house all by myself, all I can do is read and watch movies with my foot propped up.
Hopefully I won't be laid up for too long.
And hopefully I'll be able to bike soon.
For now, I'm just happy that TFN has safely reached her destination, and that I have wine in the house.
