"Yep," I said. "That's the last thing you said before you left for work. So I read a little, watched some TV and took a little nap."
When she got home that night I proudly showed her all of the tasks that I had completed. She smiled and nodded approvingly, then said, "That's great too bad you didn't have enough time to put up the pictures of the kids."
"Oh, please!" she said disgustedly, but quickly added, "Well, then you should be rested enough to take on all of those projects tomorrow. It sure would be nice if you could get some things done around here while you're home from work. But I guess I can just do them this weekend after I've finished working all week."
Shoot, guilty as charged.
"Hey, wait a minute," I said. "I'm only home for a week. This is not a sabbatical! How much do you think I can possibly get done? You must think I'm Superman!"
"Uh, you've obviously never heard of ESPN, MLB Network and the Golf Channel," I countered. "I think I'll have plenty to keep me occupied."
"Oh, hello dear," I said meekly. "How was you're day?"
She had taken all the fun out of being lazy. So the next day I found time to hang the mirror, put up the towel racks, replace the furnace filters and clean the garage ". well, at least I started to clean the garage.

Now you know what a "honey do" list is, right? Honey do this, honey do that. I do too, but I played dumb (which is usually pretty easy for me).
"Relax, Clark," she said sarcastically. "Just get as much done as you can." And with that she was out the door and off to work, and I was home alone with my list of projects ". along with the TV, the five books I got for Christmas and a refrigerator filled with holiday leftovers.

"What's this?" I asked, knowing all too well what she was handing me.
"Great," she said cheerfully. "Well, put the mirror up in the dining room, clean up the garage, replace the furnace filters, clean Omega Speedmaster Strap Options up your office, put up the pictures of the kids, fix the thermostat, put up the towel racks in the bathroom, move the grandfather clock ".

So when she headed back to work on the Monday after Christmas, she left me with one last, very special Christmas gift a Omega Constellation Automatic Price
The weather wasn't cooperating much, unless you're a big fan of heavy rain and bitter cold (OK, all you Midwestern transplants, I'm a wimpy California boy 40 degrees is cold!). And the kids, now teachers, were home from school, but there wasn't much time for father son fun Natalie saw to that.
So on that Monday, that turned out to be my plan. I started with a cup of coffee and the morning newspaper; then I caught up on the bowl match ups on ESPN; after a short nap, I read a few chapters in this cool book Natalie gave me for Christmas; and then I watched an old movie on the Classic Movie Channel.

Hmmm, what was the last thing she said to me? Oh, yeah: Relax!
"Oh, I just jotted down a couple of projects you might want to work on since you're going to be home all week," she said. "No sense getting too attached to Oprah or The View since you'll only be home a few days," she added with a chuckle.
"Not great," she said, "but at least the traffic was light. Everyone's on vacation like you are. What did you do today?"
