Hello

I was going to spend some more time here today but alas....that blasted FaceBook and of course "life" took over.  I have a kid traveling around the entire lower mainland (which keeps me unnerved), I have another who skipped school today and now is legitimately sick and my last should have been in bed by 9, but....is still hoisted in her father's lap.

I got through a massive headache today and the pain I've been suffering with in my arm-pit has gotten a little better....oh shit....I should keep quiet...you know...."Murphy's Law".  I planned on being in bed by 9 tonight as well...I'm going, I'm going.

Day three of yoga tomorrow!

New Chapter

My son graduated in June. 
My son quit his pancake flippin job in June.
My son did essentially nothing in July or August.
My son went for a job interview last Monday.
My son started work last Tuesday...like "real" full-time work!
My son bought a truck on Wednesday.
My son has been getting up every morning this week at 5:30.
My son has matured and I think is ready for the "real" world.

This is his new pick-up....pht...all I could afford was a 1976 Pontiac Acadian!
