The one problem with holidays that are tied to a fixed date rather than being allowed to float -- take, for example, Independence Day -- is that it will eventually land on a Wednesday, neatly bisecting the week.
I appreciate the day off, but it's hard to get up much of a head of steam, especially when the weather outdoors is one big head of steam. Nevertheless, things were accomplished today.
Katie and I walked with the Des Plaines Girls Softball group in the town's Fourth of July parade.
Katie, Gretchen, and I cleaned the kitchen and isolated and disposed of the source of the godawful smell.
While cleaning the kitchen, we bundled up 16 grocery bags full of grocery bags and took them back to the store for recycling.
