And then I woke up

The wonderful and exciting parade of visitors that the Johnson home has enjoyed of late has finally come to an end. With Ms. Kramer and Mr. Wood's back to back visits, our house has proudly borne the title of "place to be" for a while. Now, with no other expected guests on the horizon, I'm reminded of the more mundane and yet undeniably necessary tasks at hand. Schoolwork, dishes, laundry, jobs. Too easily set aside when fun things are in the foreground. But they remain, and peer out of corners like neglected puppies until they're taken care of. And with no new immediate distraction, I can take this time to revel in the ordinary. Change over laundry loads with gusto and flare, dance behind the vacuum cleaner like Jennifer Beals, maybe even exercise. Or maybe not. Some things are still a bit much.

But it was a lovely time, almost a vacation at home.
We golfed, we bowled
drank some beers.
We ate large amounts of cheese.
How much fun can a person pack into a week?

Not that Gene's visit was completely recreational...
He did set up a lovely network of sorts, so now all the roomies computers can talk to each other. answered all the picture uploading questions we could think to ask.
and thanks to his covert handiwork, my bed no longer lists like a sinking boat when I climb on. So the world is really looking up, I'd say.

It was good to have him here. All other visitors/potential visitors are most welcome. We're a fun house. We play frisbee golf. We have beer. and cheese.
I'm telling you, it's a good time.

Safe home, Gene.

Ah, the musings of Kati V - it's been to long. It's good to see you're still your ponderous self. ;)
Wait, a little further down the horizon there...

I think it is.

Not that you'd *have* to sleep in the garage, of course. it's a bit cooler at the moment. but you like that kind of stuff.

I had a great time, and you still have discer to look forward to. And maybe you can take part in any competetive game whatsoever without me constantly trying put money on it. =)

In the future, I recommend exclusively taking bets against drunk opponents who want to bowl. Gumble.
