After a week in California, I can officially say I am NOT acclimated to the temperatures in the San Joaquin Valley. But I am adjusted to the fact that we are setting up shop here for a while. And when I say ‘setting up shop’, what I mean is we are camping out Dupree style with some friends. Unfortunately, because of some family circumstances, Dave had to leave the baking heat soon after we arrived to be at home. And for visa reasons, he won’t be back for a few weeks. Coincidentally, my friend Ashely finds herself single until the end of the month, as her husband and son headed back to Canada for a visit. Do the math on that and you’ll realize that the outcome is two pseudo-single girls in one house with fantastic cable and Olympic coverage. And a large cache of wine. Pandemonium ensues.
