Work and Play

There's still lots of cleanup to do around our place, but we're making progress. Bruce and the kids did a gob of work yesterday, while I was at the hospital. The basement is drained and drying out, and lots of garbage has been disposed of. I got hold of the insurance agent, and we're on the list; but there's so many claims, and so many people in a worse mess than we are, that it'll be a while before everything's back to normal.

Today, believe it or not, prior commitments have us playing hooky. Bruce and Kyle are off to a long-awaited Cub Scout Camping weekend. We thought about canceling the trip (there's so much left to do), but Kyle has been looking forward to it for what, in 8-year-old terms, is a very long time. They left this morning, and will be back tomorrow night.

This afternoon Carolyn and I are taking a break, and heading over to Park Forest, to a festival sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Church. No, I'm not jumping ship; one of the women in my CPE group is a member, and her band is playing at the festival (how is it that I'm lucky enough to find music geeks wherever I go?). Anyway, we're going to listen to Ziffel for a couple of hours.

And then, back to work.
