Have You Seen My Pride & Joy?

Home at last! I returned home last night around 9ish, having caught an earlier flight than scheduled. When I got here I found a huge, handmade banner hanging in the kitchen, welcoming me home. Apparently Aunt Jo Jo put the girls to work yesterday afternoon. In the past 2 weeks I've traipsed from L.A. to Dallas to Philadelphia and back again. It was fun but being home beats all of it.

In my absence, Sarah learned to write her name all by herself and Kate won a major award, a Cat In The Hat hat, for being "the best student of the day". Apparently, I'd been holding them back. Today Kate's school is closed so I took the day off work and kept both kids here with me. So far we've worked on cards for Grammy Provost, who is having her knee replaced today (I can't wait to see what she replaces it with) - Hollah, Grammy! - made pancakes and bacon and planned an outing to the zoo. There's some talk of baking cookies when we return.After all that fun, I have a massage, followed by an adjustment, followed by plans for the bottle of wine in the wine fridge. The sun is shining, the temperature is working its way toward 50ish and I don't have to go anywhere near an airport. I will enjoy today, because tomorrow night and Sunday, I have to work (boo.)

Be pompous obese and eat cactus,
Be dull and boring and omnipresent.
Criticize things you don't know about,
be oblong and have your knees removed.

Until I started school, I thought the lyrics were,"Everybody's working FOR the weekend." Now I know better; it's ON.

Well, Sunglasses, in honor of your lovely bride's birthday (and because I had roll-over vacation days that must be used before 3/31) I'll have a 4-day weekend withOUT work next week! If there's a song about that, it's probably reggae.
