Don't feel bad Rachel, I know enough about sports to be really bored when people start talking about it.
YES, Shann, I quit working where I was late nights, and have gone back to doing remodels in the day time.
For now it is more handyman odd jobs until the landlord gets this property maintenance thing going. I have the work on his place, that helps with rent, any odd jobs I get added to what I make cleaning the laundromat will cover my bills, for the most part.
Snuck over and saw the kids yesterday, not that I was missing them yet or anything, I was just over in that area and, ummm... I called first to see if they were home, they must have Caller-ID, Slug answered, speaking fast and very LOUD. "Hi Uncle Ed. Are you coming over to visit me I helped mom make noodle soup you can have lunch with us are you coming over?"
It sounded just like that, but the words were closer together. I could tell she didn't miss me one bit.
She was waiting on the bumper of their truck when I rode in, piggy-back to the house, drug to the kitchen where she played hostess and dished up soup. Then she read to me from one of her school books. She is reading "Swiss Family Robinson" and she wanted to show off how good she could read.
It was cool. Sitting on their porch with the little Monkey in my lap (She fell asleep) and Slug snuggled beside me reading out loud from her book.
Okay, okay, so I missed them. Its been more than a month.
