Homer's Travels: A Lump Is A Lump ... On The Couch

A Lump Is A Lump ... On The Couch

Early in the wee hours of the morning ... 4:00 AM to be exact ... I took the Wife to Eppley Airfield so she could catch her flight to New York.  She is attending an  Ellis Island workshop on immigration and health.  During the week attendees will be visiting parts of Ellis Island that are not open to the public.  She even gets to wear a hardhat.  Very cool.  She will be allowed to take pictures but they can not be made public - i.e. no pictures on for Homer's Travels and none for Flickr.

While the Wife is in New York, Homer and I are trying to figure out what to do with ourselves.  I've been imitating Homer most of the day.  By that I mean sitting on the couch like a lump.  Then again, a lump is a little more animated than I've been.  What I've been telling myself is that I need a day of sloth to get me motivated to actually get out and do something.  Yeah.  Right.

I do have a few household chores and minor home fixes that I need to do.  I hope to mix some exploration of Omaha in there as well.  I have a few fans who seem to think I don't post enough so I'll try to post some more (try being the operative word there).

Now, if I could only get Homer off the couch so I could stretch out ...


  1. Can she at least get a pic of herself in the way-cool hard hat?

    Meh. Go ahead. Be a slouch. I won't tell anyone. :)

  2. Yay to hanging out on the couch!

  3. Well, it's the opposite for me. I feel restless. And in the end of the day, I still get the impression that nothing has been done.

    You've averaged approximately 19.5 posts a month since january, so I would say you pretty much stick to it so far. One post for each of the next three days and July will be above average:).

    Keep in mind that this is your blog, not your readers'.

  4. GH: They did take a group picture with everyone in their hard hats. Not sure it will get posted but who knows.

    Too late about not telling ... I always rat myself out.

    JaG: It's OK as long as i don't make it a habit ... which seems to be a possibility.

    Gany: Thank you Gany, you always remind me of what's important. One more post and I'll keep the average.

    While it is my blog, I try to keep the readers in mind. Especially since most of my readers, especially the fans, are family.
