meanwhile, back at the ranch...

I've been neglecting this space, I know. Blame it on my finally having found gainful employment, in Ft. Worth. I leave my house at the crack of dawn each morning. In fact, Mike accused me of putting our cat, Leo, out "in the middle of the night!"

"But I didn't!" I said.

"Mom," Mike said, "I heard you!"

"Well, I let him out in the morning, as always," I said.

Mike interrupted, "No, Mom, it was the middle of the night!"

I thought about what he'd said.

"Could it have been 5:00 AM?" I asked.

"Yeah," Mike said, "I think it probably was."

"Uh, Mike...that's what time I get up these days, for work..."

I'm spending about 2 1/2 hours a day, commuting, and that cuts into my computer time, but I'll be writing more soon, I promise, and I'll be catching up on my reading of everyone else's blogs too.

Aw, what a sweetie. That's a great pic. Commutes are tough, and I've done it a plenty. Thankfully now my university is only about a 15-20 minute drive from "the country" where I live. I feel for ya.

I'm bummed! I miss you :) I hope you like your new job? My hubby and I refer to "the bean" far too much. LOL

Love & hugs
