Thursday morning, she missed the bus because she spent too much time playing with the cat with our new laser pointer, I drove her in (my wife was off to a friend's garage sale). Maybe I should use the ice water filled Super Soaker method of getting her moving. Grr, late to work.
I've been trying to do one tedious chore a night, to stay caught up on the house, in addition to the tedium of cooking dinner nearly every night.
One tedious chore was raking the dirt spots by our new tree, spreading grass seed, covering it with squirrel chewed burlap and cut grass, and watering. Our neighbor informed us they're moving out at the end of July and the a-hole landlord is moving back in (he was watching the house when we bought and left his ancient boat in the garage the day we took possession. He had an attitude when we asked him to move it). They weren't bad neighbors, the exhibitionist mom moved out, leaving the nurse (who would have helped us kill our run over cat if she had her vet kit with her) who is very nice, and her loud uncle (I think he has a hearing impairment). Last I heard the landlord had two kids, I suspect he's getting divorced.
In reading news, I just finished Wolmar's Blood, Iron and Gold, a high level overview of the history of railroads. Very interesting, I need to read more about railroads.
Last night I finished The Big Chill. Man those hippies were messed up, who ever thought that short super permed look was sexy (Glenn Close's do)? I also found my high school yearbook from 1984, some of the girls had similar hair. Boy, the 80's were messed up too.
I don't recall hearing about that movie when it came out, but then I was into stuff like "The Terminator" back then, I recall seeing it in 3-D at the theater.
Busy day and busy weekend. Sunday I might attend a work party for our community garden, nothing like making the intellectual urban hoi polloi do manual labor in the dirt (I better find some red shorts and a Che shirt).
Tonight we may go out to dinner with another family, the one my wife was helping with their garage sale. She made $38 yesterday, which would cover a lot of dinner. My wife was surprised at how much it costs to feed a family of four out, even Friendly's will run $45.
