I'm really tired today. I think it's because I slept with Cal part of the night and it got kinda cold and made my throat and ear hurt. Only one side of my throat though and that was weird. I took some ibuprofen though and was able to fall asleep finally. But I didn't get nice sleep like I did the night before. Oh well there's always naptime.
Tonight Duncan, Mike and my mom are going to see Chess. Mike's mom was supposed to go but she's on a cruise in Alaska so she gave the tickets to my mom. This actually sounded like a musical Mike would like so he agreed to go. As a result it'll just be me and Cal at home tonight. Maybe it'll warm up enough that we can swim a little after dinner. If not, we'll just play in the backyard.
Today I'm going to tidy some more. I've got a mess in my room because we moved the big ass treadmill in there. Mike bought the thing on Ebay so he could exercise every day but he refuses to walk in the morning and with Cal around it's next to impossible for him to walk in the evening while Cal is awake. Mike's idea was to build a removable barricade around the treadmill so he could walk and keep Cal out. Now it's not that the thing would keep the Lord of Chaos out. Nooooo, he'd still be able to climb over it. I can just see it now, Mike walking and huffing and puffing and hollering at Cal to get off the barricade.
As you can tell I wasn't really on board with this plan so I told him that I would make room in our bedroom for the treadmill that way he could walk on it in the evening. Shutting and locking the door will keep Cal out quite well. I had to move the exercise bike out of the bedroom to make room for the treadmill and now I've got to clear a spot for the exercise bike in the computer room. Not too difficult really since the treadmill is out of there. The treadmill looks horrible in the bedroom but it was that or the barrier plan and I much prefer the barrier free approach.
