Trying to get him to sleep is being a chore. He just now went to sleep and I'm hoping to sneak out for a bit so my rattling around doesn't wake him and I need to get supplies for meals.

Thanks, Andy! It's good to have him home.

It is always trying when a loved one is in the hospital. Hope all is well.

On Sunday a friend came and took over the computer for the afternoon! I'd totally lost my email address book, and couldn't figure out how to "rip" music for my MP3.

Yay, Yay, and Hip-Hip Hooray for having wonderful friends!

What a crazy day. Had to work 6 till noon, ran to store, ran home, started cooking for counselors, we have a small camp for little kids ran by volunteers (3 teenage girls17-18) all the community has to do is provide them with shelter and food. I do not even have kids in the camp this year, but duty calls. Anyways, the past week I was so busy at work I have not even seen my wife let alone have dinner with her, so I thought we would have dinner all together, well I was wrong, I prepared a meat/chicken dish, but my wife could not have meat today for whatever reason, so I decided to make something dairy/vegetarian for her. Guess what we keep really stringent kosher, so if at all possible I will not eat the meat and the dairy at the same table. Feeling bad that I have not been able to have dinner with her the whole week I said that I would also eat only dairy stuff with her. So that meant cooking two separate dinners. In the middle of all of this my parents came to pick the black currants that are at about the end of its season, and that meant that I have to make the preserves/jelly. On the way here they stopped at grocery store where they found the Bing cherries on sale, my mother could not resist temptation, she picked up 4 pounds. So as if all of the above was not enough, I end up making 2 kinds of jellies. Now I have about 5 pints of each jelly, yum. … Tired, but happy, a lot was accomplished today, well, at least at home that was, work, well, there is another day at work tomorrow…. Good night.

Good grief, Charlie, I'm exhausted just reading your post! Glad you got so much done, and some good jellies too!
