Too much time on my hands?

My buddy, Celeste, commented on my last post, "We have too much time on our hands."

Hey, it goes with being house-bound!  I suppose if it weren't for the Internet during the day and TV in the evenings, I'd  be reading a good book on these long winter days.  But most books pale in comparison to what I've been reading online.  And I still have ten years of "Law and Order" to catch up on, on TV.

Cliff is as yet without a project, and today I made the ultimate sacrifice for him:  "Would you like to surf?"  I asked him.

"Yeah, I think I would."  He sounded a little surprised.

And I did the unthinkable.  I handed over the keyboard to my loving husband and retreated to the table to work on the crossword puzzle in today's paper.

Of course, I did know that he's never been able to sit in this chair for more than an hour before his back starts hurting.

Still, I think I did my good deed for the day.

And what did he do online?  He went to Yesterday's Tractors and browsed tractor ads.  The whole time.  Geesh.

I wish I had just a little time on my hands.  What time I get I have to steal.
