Yesterday I had one of my busy days. My son didn't get called to sub so we cleaned the chinchilla cages, vacuumed, burned the trash, did a load of laundry, ran the dishwasher, and cleaned the bathroom/porches/patios/steps. We cooked enough meat ... Read more

Yesterday was kind of gloomy and the threat of rain loomed large so we didn't do much for Mother's Day. Today turned out to be beautiful so we got some lunch/snacks/drinks together, hooked up the pontoon boat, and headed to the lake. We we... Read more
