Another exciting post about housework

Y'all may want to skip this. It's all you, baby.

I got up this morning under duress: Julian claimed he was hungry. Hungry enough to complain about needing food, but not hungry enough to want to eat it after I gave it to him. He eventually had a piece of string cheese and half a bagel. I collected myself, and him, and the two of us went outside to do yard "work", which for him was yard "play". We raked, he jumped in leaves, we bagged, we took apart the sukkah (Julian did most of the hard work of course; I just helped) and then I mowed. The oak, of course, hasn't listened to me and has continued to barf used leaves all over the yard since completion of these tasks.

I then did some other assorted yard tasks, and then came inside for lunch. I set up the fleishig dishwasher, ran it, and then took a shower. Karen put Julian down for a nap, and the two of us watched some more Smallville. We're working on Season 4, and I have to admit I've become an addict. I'd ask for an intervention, but really, what else can I do? Once we get through Season 5, I'm not going to have any choice but to wait. My lifestyle does not include a TiVo, nor any plans to buy said device, hook it up, and try to watch TV that way. I'm so last millenium.

Karen's mother has just come by to take Julian out for pizza and to get him (so to speak) out of our hair. Granted, he took a two and a half hour nap, so he hasn't exactly been in our hair, but so be it. Once Karen's off the phone, I'll find out what the evening holds.

I would have thought a more appropriate verb would have been "shed", or, perhaps, if verbing nouns meets with your approval, "dandruff".

Re: Barf?
"Shed", although thoroughly appropriate, fails to convey my emotional state as regards the deleafing process. "Dandruff" is more appropriate, although I'm somehow attached to "barf". I love the tree, mind you, so I'm not really as irritated as I sound. The tree helps to make the property as lovely as it is.
