Re: Today ...

Yesterday.... Took the three youngsters to church while my wife stayed home. There was a carry-in lunch after. Situations like this always make me think of single parents and just how crazy their life is. I :clap: any who have been/are in the middle of raising a family alone.

Re: Today ...

I said this about my wife back before Christmas. She's also getting a new kitchen, floor, window, ceiling fan, etc put in right now. Too many projects, so little time. Well, it's done. A bit of trim to go yet. She won the kitchen from a local company in a Facebook contest. Several of you voted for u...
