My daughter Tobi is across the street watching the Seahawks wipe the grass with Patriots. She’s with one of our board members at a dive bar. Stephen was going to be part of the Superbowl viewing but apparently he went hiking all night and slept in a cave, so he’s tired. I guess I would be tired too if I slept in a cave. Tobi and David Mainelli are hopefully having a good time.
Mark is making Mexican food for all of us for dinner. It smells great.
We had our board meeting today also. So it’s been quite a weekend.
We rented a truck to get the couch in Encinitas. We’ve had to rent trucks several times. It’s annoying not to have a truck in the family. We need to haul dirt? We rent a truck. Palm fronds all over the yard? Truck. We needed to go get this couch? Truck rental. On the side of the U Haul trucks is a bit of a sign that says, $19.95/ rental. There is no such thing. Under no circumstances can you actually rent a truck for $19.95. It costs quite a bit more but they get you call excited about the $19.95, but it will be more than $100. They are scamming you. Of course, we got a good deal because our friend Elise gave us the couch. Which was super nice of her. The couch looks adorable.
This week will be busy and then off I go to Winter Institute in Asheville, North Carolina.
We are putting our dog Luna down tomorrow. It’s a sad thing for our family. Tobi, Stephen and I picked Luna out when she was a puppy. We brought her home and she’s been a really good dog. She’s a Rhodesian Ridgeback, a big dog with a lovely disposition. We will all miss Luna. Luna, we love you.
