We played Buddy, which was really hard. In general, we were around the right answer but needed the hints to pick the right documents. We had played Harmony earlier and I think that was easier. Every player has to take the time to read through all of the documents.

She's busy today, but Kelly has played more than I have so should be able to expand on this.

I've never had a roll, because I hate mayonnaise, but its what my Mom got at Woodman's.

Good morning, everybody!

We had a good weekend. Friday we made fish tacos with some of the fish that we brought back from Florida. On happy hour Friday night, we learned that one of our friends agreed to buy a new house, so that was exciting.

Saturday morning was the 3 mile run with push-ups and squats. I was wishing that I made it to the 8:00 run when I was in the sunny parts, but overall it wasn't too bad. Saturday afternoon we took my son to test drive trucks. I think that he loved the Tacoma. Of course the dealership is haunting us now.

Marilyn and the kids got me two cold case murder games and we played one on Saturday. Yesterday, I read on the screenporch and then went fishing with my son.

Only two more weeks until we are on shutdown for July 4th. Woohoo!

QOTD: seeing Marilyn and my children, music, Crossfit.

Breakfast: omlette

lunch: hamburger and salad

Dinner: TBD

Have a great day, all!

I was in 8th grade when I started listening to a lot of music. I think 9 or 10 when I started following sports.

Good morning, everybody!

We got a rain storm last night, but I don't think that it cooled anything down, because it's supposed to be super hot today.

I did my part to support the California reopening by placing orders with Spring Mountain and Heitz Cellars yesterday.

Tomorrow we are taking my son to test drive a Toyota Tacoma. He needs a 4 wheel drive vehicle in Colorado, and we want to see if he likes driving the truck. He drives a Honda Pilot (every Mom in my town has a grey Honda Pilot), so I suspect it will be pretty similar. The challenge is that his grandfather will sell him the same truck for a better price, so if he likes it we have to extract ourselves from the dealer and buy it from his grandfather.

In the morning we are doing a little course where you run 3 miles and stop every half mile for 15 push-ups and 15 squats. It's a fun one that we've done before.

QOTD: Obviously all the candy, but I'm going to assume that is already a given and go with Wacky Packs. Does anybody remember these?

Pictures are from Boston last week: Walden Pond, Thoreau's replica house, Woodman's and of course, the lobster.





Breakfast: Sausage and cottage cheese

Lunch: fish tacos

Dinner: Cabernet and cheese.

Have a great day, all!

Good morning, everybody!

My friend lives in Oregon and she sent me this news story that the state has legalized "human composting." She said that she's trying to figure out how to break it to her husband that he's going in her rose garden.

I guess that human composting is some process of using the recently deceased to nourish plants. But wasn't that exactly the plot of Little Shop of Horrors?

The article was short on details, but I have to imagine that you simply won't be able to plow people under your plantings pell mell.

Bodies in the cucumber patch, you are Greta Thurnburg? but bodies in the crawl space you are John Wayne Gacy?

In either case, I'm out.

I tweaked my knee just a little bit on Tuesday, but it seems fine today.

I suggested to my youngest that he check out Cal Poly based on location and Sheila/Amy's input. He said that he would look at it. I don't know whether it is easier or harder for out of state students to get admitted, but his scores are right at the average for the school, so maybe there is a chance.

QOTD: I used to like woodworking but since we have had children, I really haven't had the time or space. So now, its mostly little jobs around the house, reading and writing.

Breakfast: Turkey meatballs and cottage cheese

Lunch: omlette

Dinner: Hello Fresh

Have a great day, all!

Congratulations on the promotion. Unrelated, but what do you think of Cal Poly? My son is interested in Bio Chem.

You know, Sheila, we can't remember what happened to DD's graduation. It was supposed to be in May, and then that was converted to virtual. And then it was rescheduled to August. And we lost track of it. Anyways, enjoy. It will be a proud moment.

Good morning, everybody!

JB, I am thinking about your Mom today. That hits home after my visit last week. The craft room looks amazing. Putting in an island was a great idea.

Southwest had a big sale yesterday, so Marilyn booked all of our travel for the next six months or so. For our Napa/Sonoma trip, we will be flying into Sacramento around lunchtime on October 2nd, if any of the Cali ladies want to meet up. I know that Sacramento isn't real close for anybody (and its super far for Lisa and Stacy), but I wanted to throw it out there.

Marilyn is howling with laughter because I got a packet in the mail from Porsche. She says that "how could anyone that drives as slow as me be sought after by Porsche."

The job application from the deli remains untouched - a reminder that many is the slip 'twixt cup and lip. Especially for those parenting teens.

QOTD: Insane optimism and confidence, similar to Jen. I think it is a prerequisite for certain jobs.

Breakfast: omlette

lunch: chicken

Dinner: TBD

Have a great day, all!

Good morning, everybody!

My youngest did go down to the deli and got the job application. He has to fill it out today and drop it back off. Fortunately, he knows somebody who works there and hopefully they will put in a good word for him.

My older son is going to test drive a truck on Saturday. We are trying to figure out the best strategy for who should accompany him. Since they will try and sell him after the test drive, I kind of think that only one of us should go so that the other can say, "well we have to run it by Dad.."

My daughter had her second vaccination on Saturday, so now all of us are fully vaccinated. She said it was kind of rough getting through the first 24 hours but she is fine now.

QOTD: I am going to say Moose. It's been many years since I have seen one though.

I was fishing a couple of weeks ago when a snake came across the pond on the top of the water. The northern water snake and the water moccasin (cottonmouth) have the same markings, but supposedly there are no cottonmouths this far north in Illinois and you can tell by examining the shape of their heads. Well, I took off as soon as I saw it and was certainly not going to get close enough to compare head shapes.

Breakfast: protein bar

Lunch: omlette

Dinner: Hello Fresh

Have a great day, all!
