Everyone eat apricots!!

Perks of traveling a lot:

1. Frequent flier miles
2. Hotel points
3. Getting away from the mice in the office

Apparently, the plumbing problem was baby wipes, presumably flushed by previous residents.

My sister came to visit the other day, which was great!  Now all the Goatland sisters have seen the place.

Plumbing continues to be a problem, however.  Steve's bathtub occasionally fills with foul-smelling water, which looks yellow but might actually be what they call "black" - i.e., contaminated with sewage. The landlords are trying to be responsive, but they don't seem to think this warrants a visit from an actual plumber.  Renter's insurance, anyone? Or should we call in a health inspector?

I hope they fix this problem more carefully than they "fixed" the refrigerator, which they hooked up incorrectly so that water seeped through the hardwood floor into the garage.

Steve's 14-year-old brother is visiting for the week, which is kind of cool because he's actually taller than Steve. Also, Steve's sister Holly will be coming in two weeks to stay with us for a month.

Breathing hurts.
Possible reason: 4 hours of rowing yesterday may have made my chest muscles sore.

Slouching hurts.
Possible reasons: The aforementioned rowing. Also, Early Monster woke me up at like 7am or something ridiculous this morning, and, after that, I got back to sleep in a weird position.

I spent almost all weekend in Burlingame: Saturday night for crepes, then Sunday afternoon shopping with Daniel and sitting in the sun eating paninis.

Hooray for Burlingame! The shopping street is even right near the Caltrain stop. If only I had known (and had some cash) when I was in college!

Kristin visits the Goatland, gawks at Jon's walls, eats like 20 apricots, disapproves of the negativity of Aqua Teen Hungerforce, and appreciates the Italian breadsticks.

There are also cherries (already eaten by the birds), lemons, mint, and pears, but I'm not sure there were peaches.

One day there will also be tomatoes.

Keiser visits Goatland, and discovers apricots! Apparently, our backyard has apricots, blackberries, peaches, apples, and mandarin oranges.
