Yes, that is our fireplace open. Yes, that is my son covered in soot. And yes, that is Hubs' cordovan loafer that The Boy used to push the ash around in the fireplace.
He's sleeping now. Off to shower, do homework, do laundry, wash the floors, clean up the mess in the bathroom and wash myself. All within the next hour, which is when he's going to be up.
Wish me luck.
*Also, there's a new sign on the across the street neighbor's tree. Something about a foreclosure sale on the house coming up at the end of March....sad, but if you can't pay your bills- sell your boat. Oh, and how great is it going to look when we put our house on the market to have prospective buyers looking at that...nice?? Guess we're not moving until late spring, at the earliest, after all.
