it was perfect

Some little thoughts: 

1.  I don't think marriage is really a right, though I'm willing to hear arguments to the contrary.  But our government has decided to make it a right by getting in the game of blessing and sanctioning marriage (which is technically an agreement between two people, and in the case of churchy folk, two people and God, so why the government is even in the mix is unclear to me), so I don't see how they are going to be able to argue that you can sanction heterosexual marriage but not homosexual marriage.  I predict the ultimate demise of any sort of legislation that only allows marriage between a man and a woman. 

2.  I almost set the house on fire last night because I thought I would just leave the burner for my boiled wheat (which I add to my yogurt for textural interest and fibrous benefit) on the lowest setting overnight.  Big mistake.  I don't know if it will ever not smell like burned toast mated with burned microwave popcorn.

3.  Do any of you have great budgeting tips that don't make you feel like you're living in a cage?  I would really like to become a grownup in this regard.

4.  I have been on a tear of listening to Swan Lake ever since we watched the Opening Ceremonies last week.  The children are irritated, except for Willa, because she wants to become a figure skater.  Pfft, she's already too old, I'm sure.  Ike wants to be a speed skater, and he is also probably too old.  Grant and Emmett are undeclared.

5.  I made an apricot cream paleta this week.  It was very good/delicious, depending on which family member was eating it--John rated it higher than I did.

I'm not touching the marriage topic, which shows unusual restraint for me. I think a crock pot would work well for your wheat, don't you? Why don't you feel like a grownup about money? You seem very grownup. You will have to do a summary post on all your paletas, please. Apricot cream sounds very good.

A crock pot is a great idea! I will try that.

I would say that I am usually pretty grown up, but in regards to budgeting I am just awful. Any attempt I make to track my spending incites feelings of panic and deprival.
