Geh! So behind. Some miscellany:

It rained today. Finally! The heat is gone. Today I also took the bus to work. Coincidence?

Tonight we ate the crab legs that Monkey bought (frozen) a few days ago. So tasty! Now I have to take the trash out, though. (Pookie pronounced crab merely "meh", but it does not trigger the instant-purge allergy that shrimp does, so that's good.) We're also nearly through the big box of clementines, and if they're still at the store, I'll buy more. Something about their smallness makes us eat more of them.

Yesterday I did (massive amounts of) laundry while the boys got some serious downtime. Zipped up to the laundromat at the Basemar shopping center in Boulder, which I love because it has the Laundry Centrifuge. This thing is awesome. One quarter to spin your clothes up to enough gees to halve the drying time. I wish I could find one closer to home.

Played some BatHotH with Nick & Jen on Friday. Played Shadows Over Camelot with Chris, Jeff, and Kate on Saturday. Days of Wonder puts out pretty cool board games. Very schwank. We ended up playing for about a half-hour longer than we needed to, because we wanted to make sure that we'd win even if there was a traitor -- which there wasn't. D'oh!

FINALLY got Jerry's tax return info in the mail; I dropped it off at CU this morning. Now I have to go to the grocery store to pick up some food and $15 for Greg so he can renew his driver's license.

(I never promised the miscellany would be interesting.)

Citrus? In July? But, there's cherries, and peaches, and, um, oh, never mind.

OK, now I need to eat my fruit breakfast. I like summer a lot better now that I don't work on a farm.

That makes sense. My beloved likes winter much more now that he no longer works on a farm. (His parents are maple syrup farmers...)

I believe quite strongly that the only justification for summer is the food.

The cherry crop has mostly been and gone (and we did eat a bunch). I think we're still waiting on the western slope peach crop. And citrus does a whole lot better banging around in a backpack, waiting to be eaten as a snack...

You're turing into the house mommy. I guess if you spend too much of your day building games, then your sweeties have to make you do *something*.

Re: Mom

It's because they haven't had ANY free time lately, what with working lots and lots of overtime. I decided to pick up extra chores for a little bit.

Clementines are still available there now? How odd. The ones here were gone by end of March.

The Laundry Centrifuge sounds really cool. I've never seen such a thing, though tho 40lb front-loaders at the laundromat i used to use spun enough to make for less, but not half the, drying time than the smaller machines.
