My Week

I had one of those weeks where I just did not feel like working on anything - so I didn't. I ended up in the dog house at work again and parent teacher conferences have screwed up my days with my schools operating on different schedules. I did get quite a lot done at Mom's this week and I spent more time than usual with the grandkids.
