All is well.

Of course all is well. It’s been an hour since the terrible thunderstorm passed, and Rousseau the Chicken Dog has long returned to sleeping like a baby. I, on the other hand…

Funny how I’ve had two school nights thus far, and have failed to stay asleep past 3 a.m. on both occasions. We are going to have success tonight though, by crackie, because tomorrow is a marathon. It’s the first football game of the year, and Stoney and I are scheduled to be ticket droids at the gate. Fun! I like that job; you get to greet everyone. <insert cheesy Walmart joke here, go ahead>

The first day of school was not a train wreck. Lots and lots of rusty singing, but we’ll fix that right up, now won’t we?

Thanks Hanks! And ya gits a free latte any which way you can. :-) (Actually, if you register a Starbucks gift card at any time in your life, they keep your birthday on file and send you a cute post card that you take to Bux and redeem for a free anything.)
