Another 3 Day Weekend

This may be the end of the 4 day work week/3 day weekend for me. It sucks that I still feel a little crappy and have a nasty cough. Next week we go back to 5 day work weeks. I can't help feeling that I was a little spoiled for the year or so we worked 4-10 hour days. Having that Friday to myself was nice.

Boarder brother is on track to vacate April 1st. The cleaning of his room has begun. He has done more laundry in the past two days than I do in two weeks. I'm sure my water bill will reflect that. But I'm sure that I'll recoup that cost within the first month or so of him being gone. I see a lot of work ahead in cleaning the room after he's gone. I just need to figure out what to do to make it not so homey looking just in case some other relative has any ideas. We discussed knocking the wall out and enlarging our bedroom but that would totally knock down the resale value of our home. In a sense I don't care as I don't see us moving. Mention moving sometime to my husband and watch the look of panic come over his face. He has half of freaking Menards in his workshop and garage.

Hat's off to the brave bar patrons that held off the attempted robbery. It was just a matter of time before they were foiled. And how about this 10 year old kid who was caught shoplifting at Mayfair Mall one day and requested a lawyer. The kid goes back the next day with his 8 year old brother in tow and rips off Boston Store. I'm puzzled as to where his parents were. And what does a 10 year old want with almost $600.00 worth of jewerly? In agreement with this another one of these "society done him wrong" cases?

A very special "Happy Birthday" wish to J (whose parent's left today to visit her brother...a.k.a. baby precious).
