  • I spent some time relaxing and just reflecting on life.
  • By the time I picked up the boys at school I had one of the worst migraines I have had in a long time. My meds did not even help.
  • The church youth came and picked up a tv that we gave them for the rec room.

You've been busy! John is planning on taking the older two fishing, so I'll have the younger two to myself. I'm hoping to get some crocheting done!
