My brain is too tired to post something really interesting

Well, here I am back in Greendale. Left Ellettsville yesterday just before noon and spent the rest of the day at camp with Troop 119. It was family night, so I schmoozed the mommies and daddies and racked up points for caring about their kids.

The troop brought in mountains of pizza and hoards of pop for supper. Since we had to clean out our freezer before moving, collinsmom baked up four scratch pumpkin pies, which I then furnished to the throng. This made a deep and happy impression. I've already gotten an offer from a dad to share from HIS freezer -- which includes VENISON!

My friend Jessi is undergoing heart bypass surgery today or very soon, and I've been unable to contact her or her husband, what with all the chaos in our lives. I'm praying much, would appreciate your help in that regard. And with that, Gentle Reader, it's time to go do laundry and take a shower.
