    The nice thing about being married to a blue-collar worker is that he's not bringing home work on the weekends; once he's off that bus, that's it for the day/week barring natural disasters that might summon him back to help with evacuations and such (one reason why those little shakers we had the last couple of days get us going a bit).

    The problem now though is that our weekends have been lost in family care issues, with his brother in mental health care and now his mom in intermediate care after her hospital release (she's working with physical therapists though which has been desperately needed, and her goal is to be home by her birthday end of the month; I've already got a good menu for her birthday dinner).

    I AM getting away for a few days next week; I'm planning to see Avenue Q even if he can't make it so am staying in downtown San Jose to make it easier to get to/from the theater. And his best friend from NYC is going to be in town next weekend, and I'm going to insist that the spouse do something with him; brother and the folks will have to do without him for a weekend, or he can do his family stuff on Sunday.

    Civility is the way of telling someone to go fuck themselves in such a way that the someone agrees it probably is a good idea.
