Basement War – Day 12: The Bells Are Tolling

Filed under: Basement War — lbej @ 02:32

Impossible to sleep, partially due to anticipation and partially due to pain.  I intended to rest and recover yesterday, but instead I painted the stairs.  The effect of the wear and strain of the past 11 days of fighting on my body is beginning to be noticed by my troops.  My wrists are swollen and I have great difficultly standing.  I will have to rest at some point, and if I don’t, Katie is going to tranquilize me.  After today I believe a rest will be in order.

Took recycling out and church bells were tolling.  Strange and portentous.  This will be a day long remembered.  The battle begins at 5:00 a.m.

    • I can’t decide if that’s treason or mere defeatism.
