No more waking up at 6:00 a.m. to wake up 3 sleepy teens at 6:05.
No more sitting in my car for an hour and a half, nursing my iced coffee, while I read books and figure out what it is I need to get done for the day (write that Thank you note, see about getting someone to look at our washer, and get that interview article written up.)

As always, peaceful weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.
