there’s a lot to be said for having family in town.

“i don’t have to travel.”:

in fact, due to spacepod’s sudden decision to go to lonnie’s auto spa for the holiday, i got curbside pickup and drop off from various family members. i didn’t even have to drive to get to dinner.

i get to watch the bond-a-thon in my own living room, with a nice fire, instead of in “the cave” with my brothers down in the basement.

i don’t have to cook (much) or do dishes.
