A day in the life

8 a.m.
Wake to the serenade of pile drivers from across Mission Creek.

10 a.m.
Pay bills, including the latest from our contractor.

11 a.m.
Meet our friend Ellen at City Hall.

That's Ellen on the left.

11:30 a.m.
Get married. Yup.

12:30 p.m.
Have lunch at the Hayes Street Grill. We eat there every time we get married.

2 p.m.
Head over to the house to meet the guy who measures the bedrooms for carpeting.

Tape measures are so 2010.
Greg here was able to size up the rooms just by pointing a laser thingy at the walls.

2:20 p.m.
Check out what's been done on the house since last week. That would be a lot. Most notably the floor got laid. As well it should on our wedding day. 

Our new burglar alarm got installed.

And the boys have been taking their sledgehammers outside. This is because whatever was originally holding the deck to the house has rotted away and has to be rebuilt.
So the last bastion of pastoral comfort at the ole Noe Valley homestead is now just another cluttered construction site.

3:30 p.m.
Return a pillow that didn't work out. Because this so-called "king-sized" pillow did not fit in a king-sized pillow case. The store person told me to go buy some kind of super-secret super-king-sized pillowcases that fit the super-special BioSense 2 memory foam pillows.


3:40 p.m.

Buy a new pillow. This means I will have to forego sleeping on my back as the new pillow is for side sleepers. I am a bi-sleeper; that is, I sleep on my side and my back. My pillow just can't handle that. Oh, there's a pillow out there for those who sleep on their backs and stomachs. But not one that can accommodate us back and side sleepers. We are separate but not equal.

This revolution's just getting started. The sleepers. United. Will never be defeated.

4 p.m. 
Go to the gym. Yay.

6 p.m. 
Come home and blog like the wind.

And you? How was your day?
