Day of Rest
Ah, yes - finally a day when we can sleep in without a care
in the world...except that half of us woke up at 6 and couldn't
go back to sleep. Four of us (Andrew, Rocky, Jake, and Joey) are
at the Garff home in Lafayette, CA. Dan is at his parent's house
and is on his own to provide you information about his rest days.
We did as close as is humanly possible to nothing today. It's difficult
to do nothing, because even thinking about doing nothing is doing
something. Nevertheless, we succeeded.
Well, that's not entirely true. We did some hot tub therapy
in the morning, some rear rim therapy at the local bike shop, some
Seinfeld therapy in the afternoon, and some scared-straight therapy
in Walnut Creek. We (Rocky and Joey) visited our cousin Dave, his
lovely and superhuman wife Jenny, and their five children under
the age of five. Jenny recently gave birth to triplets (Ava, Cole,
and Travis) and how she manages day to day is a mystery to modern
science. Just a small dose of the "stay single for the time being"
medicine that we get from time to time.
