So, I've got a version of whatever the kids have got. Yep, kids...Liel turned up sick on Tuesday night, and has been more or less constantly in physical contact with me during her waking hours ever since. Poor girl just feels yucky :( And thank goodness for mei tais- I actually cooked dinner with Liel on my back in one this week, something I haven't done since she was a baby. Nowadays she tends to think of mei tais as outdoor accessories only!
Anyway, that's where I've been lately. Thankfully we are all on the mend (though sadly not entirely well yet), since we have a packed weekend ahead of us! Andria and Vogelman! arrive tomorrow, and I get to see Kacie on Sunday!
But about the Tower of Security. Back in grad school Mr. Faux told us a story about a girl he dated who, for reasons I can't recall, disapproved of his toilet paper choice. In order to please the girl, he switched to whatever she thought was best, though he never liked it. When they broke up he went to Costco and bought a enormous amount of his preferred toilet paper, in bulk. This, he explained to us, was his "Tower of Security"- an enormous amount of the best kind of toilet paper.
Last night our meat order from Alan arrived. We unpacked the 53 lbs of meat and tucked it into our freezer. It looks so pleasing there, nestled in it's white butcher paper! This, I decided is our Tower of Security- a freezer full of formerly free ranging meat. We all crave security right? I like the kind I can eat.
