Inside the house, as usual, 72 balmy degrees.
At one point they were working from home, had an office going, papers, fake computers together at a desk.
Later they were doing laundry, pretending to wash doll clothes and hang them on the clothesline with my grandma's clothes pins.
Laundry and office??
Could there BE any more boring things to play?
I sure didn't ask any questions.
We went back and forth a little and then I realized: I am arguing with a four year old about Nature Cat. Go get dressed.
At least argue away from my ears. We got cocoa. Tim made some lovely sandwiches on toast at home. (I am NOT going to both McDonald's and Starbucks. Non.)
I certainly hope you plan to be shaping up after this unamusing mess.

The kids baked him a cake while I was working and they frosted it and decorated it, and it was pretty delicious.
Apparently no one. But it was fine.
Yes, we all know it's ESP. He calls it ESPN anyway.
The child jumped for joy and ran and put her pajamas on in the middle of the afternoon.
We definitely do.
Oh, hell no.
You've probably already told me three times more than I want to hear.
This is a good thing.
Here's a classic from your 40th.
As it did today, Julia commenting on the beautiful night sky.
Thanks for being mine, for being ours, for being devoted and kind to our kids, and all the dogs, the turtle, the guinea pigs we've had, the geckos, both our families, your customers and mine, and also me.
Thanks for the ranting and hollering that's real and true, also.
We are all lucky having you.
Happy Birthday, Darling. love, Val and Everybody

More would have even joined, but I couldn't be sure they'd all be safe with just little old me in charge.
We need one too.
Plus she is my sweet honey.
(insert smart-alecky vulgar kissing noise)
Alicia and I talked about this in the house and the driveway, but came to no conclusion. If Alicia and Dan pass this by, is it an opportunity lost to secure a spot? (In which case I can have them whenever I want anyway, but they are required to pay.)
I don't know what to do. I've sure enjoyed these insane little Mondays. Jay was no help in any kind of decision making, even though if I take on something and have overflow work, then he has to cover for me. He's kind like that, rolls his eyes, but steps up. And then Napoleon jumps on the back of his neck and kicks him around. That's the kind of relationship they have.
love you all. Grandma, aka Val
