Look, it’s Friday and I’m not
posting from an airport. Worked from home this week! Highlights of the week…
- Actually seeing my DW!
- Eating at home!
- Sleeping in my
- Using adult sized soap and shampoo. Sorry YDS.
- Heart-shaped muffins for breakfast! (not those lame round ones that they have at the hotel
- Oh, and I get to lick the bowl at home.
- Coffee not made 5 gallons at a time.
- All car service done (for now).
- Being back in VA where clothes wash themselves and hang themselves up.
- Yard cleaned up from multiple storms and mowed.
- Taken to dinner by my boss, since we never actually see each other. Ruth’s Chris, yum!
- Won a battle with some sort of prehistoric, indestructible wasp. Thanks to “O” magazine!
- Kayaking with DW, inc. remembering the SPF.
- Upgraded my Linux distro and Eclipse. (Don’t ask)
- “Enhanced” D2’s budget (OK, that doesn’t directly make my life any easier, but it made her
Yeah, all of these seem really boring, except when you don’t actually get to do them much. I am going to so miss being home next week.
Mommusic – Very sorry to hear about your friend’s son. What a tragedy!
Hero of the Week – CD, cuz’ she deserves it!
…followed closely by Munequita and her well connected D who has arrived.
DB – Good to see you back. Sorry you had a rough June. Don’t worry, we waited to do anything until you got back.
OK, now the Summer of 2012 party for 2014 Parents can begin.
Footballmom – Glad that you didn’t lose power and got a snow day in July. We came through the storms relatively unscathed also and only lost power for maybe an hour total.
Checkers – I’m right there with you on fall charges. Made a payment already this week, ergh!
Jbehlend – Glad you made it out of Williamsburg safely… just in time to make 2 housing payments for the fall. Surely if my D can eat 6 meals a day, your S can live in 2 places at the same time.
LAF – You are a much better person than I am for making it through “mandatory fun.” I am fairly sure that I would be a “former member of the LAF family” (their choice) after all that. If we included my whole family, we could still take the short bus (which would not be OK with D1 and D2 since they had to ride the short bus every day to HS
LAF #2 – So, you have changed your name to Mrs. Google?
D1 could commiserate with your D. The kids that she babysat once threw her shoes on the roof.
ProudNJMom – Yay for paychecks. Boo for creepy neighbors…. I sure am glad that none of my neighbors have one of those.
Did S2 get to do anything for the filming of “Admission” w/ Tina Fey on campus this week?
Kinderny – Don’t you hate when what seems like the basics fall through the cracks?
Scualum – I’d love to help you with the scale date dilemma, but you know that you have scraped the bottom of the barrel if you ever take any kind of date advice from me.
BTW, you can switch the scale to kg if you want to feel even better.
Momof2inma – I hope that your D gets off the housing wait list soon. Based solely on your quote, can I assume that you visited the “Home for Wayward Morons” this week? BTW, how is YDS’s DH’s family doing?
P56 – Maybe you could go the food route to get S2 home?
12rmh18 – I’m sure that scualum appreciated you accelerating a mass of balance to such a weighty issue.
Enjoy the vacation! We’ll still be here when you get back.

New requirement for all students… Food Safety 101.
Re: 4th of July – We just went to a local fireworks display… very low-key. I think the D’s got a much better show in DC
D1 went to a friend’s place that has a view of the Washington Monument. D2 went to a party at the Commerce Department (essentially across the street from the Washington Monument)… I hope the Civil Servants didn’t get too out of control.
D2 is now glad that she did not get the South American internship for which she applied. The girl that got it is a friend of hers. She had her laptop stolen on the first day and is having a tough time making any friends… yuck! I’m just glad that D2 is not down there having eye problems. DC is bad enough. D2 did get to hear Dr./Gen. (ret.) David Petraeus (CIA Director) speak this week.
12rmh18, CD, et al. – Do you think you’ll have NoVa, DC put back together by this weekend? I called our hotel to be sure they had power because…
We are planning to go to DC this weekend to spend quality time with our poor, deprived, waif girls, or as they put it, “Will you feed me?” time
So, it is more like mama bird is bringing worms to her baby birds. We plan to visit the exhibit on which D2 has been working and, of course, feed them. D2 is probably going to come home next weekend to see her regular eye doctor on Monday morning before going back… the pink eye still hasn’t gone completely away, ergh! Also, an LDS friend of hers just got back from his 2-year missionary sabbatical from his college and they are having a “Welcome Home” party for him next weekend.
