How is this month different from all other months?
I haven't felt the full weight of Gary's birthday month this year. The extra chores are minimal. I asked Gary and he said it used to be great because he could invoke the immediate WIn Any Argument rule, but "we don't argue that much any more." And it's truuuuueeee. I hang my head in shame. I think there aren't too many conflicts because we aren't doing anything together except sleep one day a weekend. I need to look into some events around town we can attend to shake things up. We have a Modern Art museum I've never seen, and I've never seen Citigarden, or the Kemp auto museum, and I haven't been to the Transport Museum since I was a kid: when it was awful. That should start some arguments.
What did I get Gary for his birthday?
He bought those bird cameras for his parents and his sister. It didn't even occur to me until last Tuesday he might like that for his birthday. He isn't too excited about it right now, but I think he just needs to see the first night photos or the first video. Speaking of arguments, he now can not move the big mound of dirt because the squirrels have been burying their nuts in there.
What am I wearing to the Wedding?
I brought the two contender outfits to gary and Sandy's birthday party so they could pass Muslim in-law inspection. No question. Sparkly blue one won, hands down. Evidently it looks like some traditional garb that Sandy is wearing. In response to my concern that I would look strange as a white woman in South Asian garb, she said "I'm a white woman. Am I going to look strange?" Now of course, the other sister is going to look strange in a conventional black and white zebra print.
What happened to the weekly Cheese?
Cheddar takes twice as much milk as the other cheeses I've made, so I'm low on milk. Plus, I still have to use up my existing mozzarella. I have to say, the cheese experiment has really made me appreciate fancy cheese.
I need to go recline. Night!
