  1. Another Excuse to work more . . .

    This past week was a doozy for us, dh has been working really late hours (until nearly midnight a couple of those nights), oldest ds has also been working quite late - in fact the managers at the restaurant decided he was ready to "Close" for them.

When we were in the midwest, a day was like a year, a year an eternity that dragged by like turtles stampeding through cold peanut butter.
