    Okay- this week off, had to use it or lose it. Spouse out of work, so no money for travel. Live in Michigan, the home to wonderful weather (not) in July. First day, 65 degrees, raining, I think fish tank needs some maintenance. I did a water change, cleaned all the various filters, skimmer cup, yada yada. Next day, weather still lousy. Thought, hmmm, maybe I'll rearrange the rocks a bit, clean up some algae, unused shells, scrape the glass, adjust the powerheads, that sort of thing. Generally made a mess of things, got a nice algae bloom going, parameters are all screwed up...arrrgghhh! I am NEVER staying home for a week again!!! Next time it's Mexico or Vegas or something- I can get in less trouble and have more fun. I can't wait for Monday...

    I haven't even started on what I did to the outside spigot, and then there was the picnic table and the Sawz-all...

    I feel your pain! I probably would have half-started 50 different projects and not finished a single one of them....

    Well, at least it was paid.

    Many folks out there at best have been told to stay home for a day a week, or up to a week at a time with NO pay.

    Or it could be even worse, trust me.
