The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors

Another week, more low numbers in the LJ Idol poll. My entry is here, with links to the other entries and voting, if you're of a mind to help!

My parents are coming tomorrow (for real!), and will spend the night for the first time in about 11-12 years. The guest room doubles as my home office, and is also the place where all random paperwork, TBD-stuff, pending craigslist-posting items, etc. go to die. So, some serious tidying is in order tonight.

My sewing pile (mostly repairs/alterations) has been little touched for about 6-8 months, and the sweaters-that-need-shaving is in its second winter. Gah. I need a better sweater-shaver, though-- the two I have are tiny, and therefore incredibly slooooow.

I finished fertilizing the last of the 70-75 roses last weekend, and did some yard cleanup. More cleanup still needed, though, and I need to plant the cherry tomatoes I bought before Spring Break. It's the "soil improvements" that slow me down. As in, getting the gravel unburied that successive 'landscaping' people have dumped dirt over (even after being told to remove the gravel first). That's a mistake that just keeps on giving.

So, we're in mid-April now. I'm starting to think I might not get up to the snow (what's left of it) with Christopher this year. And, on the flip side, my parents are nagging me about my summer plans. Since school is starting even earlier next year, those will be harder to make than usual. So many demands, so few answers!
