Independent living

It's still 2 1/2 days before the boy gets back from his business trip, and though I've managed to single-parent without any major problems, there are some things that are just so much easier when he's around.

For example, anything to do with our entertainment system. One evening I leaned funny on one of our 4 remotes, and next thing I knew we had big ugly subtitles that covered half of the tv screen. It took me nearly 2 days to figure out how to get rid of them.

If the boy had been home at the time, I could have complained about it to him, and then left it up to him to fix it for me. Also, it's impossible to change the bedroom lightbulb unless he's around. Oh yes, I have a ladder. But I'm so short that, even when I climb up it, I can't quite reach the damn thing.

But when I see him next, I won't bother going into all that. It'll sound much more romantic if I just tell him I missed him.

I could send my partner over if you like. He (and/or I) will probably live longer that way.

Yeah, best to hold back the home IT/tall person list until the jet lag wears off.

cathi: that's a funny way of putting it!

nigel: yes, something tells me it would be taken the wrong way, eh?
