Miscellaneous miscellany.....

They held a protest/rally at Jackson Square last weekend and I think this is my favorite sign...

The kids are back from their trip to Houston - it sounds like everyone had a great time! Molly told me all about H1/SIL's waterbed and chalk drawings and cat. BB spilled out all kinds of fun stuff - they both want to go back!

While they were gone, Friday night I went to a book signing of one of my favorite authors (my experience here), and Saturday, Sunday, and Monday I slept in and stayed up late! We had friends over Sunday for dinner and Monday was filled with doctor appts for Ian. I had a lot of uninterrupted reading time which was heavenly :)

Termite update: The termite guy came and said yes - termites on the left side of the house; drilled and treated. He didn't see anything in the attic and figured they got in through a vent or something. Whew!

THEN - this weekend I noticed a bunch of straw sticking out of the wall in my bathroom near the ceiling - yup - active termites. So the guy came out and said it was somehow related to the plumbing and he'd have to get a plumber and stonemason out before he treats.

THEN - last night, as I'm walking into our bedroom, I notice two spots on the ceiling. "Please let that be dirt..." - not dirt - termites. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck!!!!

So - it was the best of times, it was the worst of times...But I'm looking forward to my "girlfriend weekend" next week - Meeting some fellow book bloggers and SIL (H) for some books and fun!!
