And there was coffee, and it was good

There’s something you should know about the week I’m having. I’m happy to report that all systems are functioning. The eldest of my progeny has been getting up in the morning and getting ready for school, which may seem trivial, but is actuality no small feat. Actually, it’s not unlike an 18, extra wide… something with a hard, slippery sole if you have it. The youngest of our clan has started “Table Utensils 101,” but has not yet discovered the household spoon can serve as a catapult in a pinch. He’s a quick study though.

Most importantly, next week my work production takes a nosedive. That’s because I won’t be there. While budgetary constraints will keep us close to home, I am filled with glee at the prospect of doing… nothing.

Give the gift of words.
