Well...just as I suspected, Holmes...no work on the TreeHouse.
This is how it still stands:
The focus was elsewhere this week.
Oh, and did I mention, leaves? Sheesh...it's this time of the year that I start to long for a home in the middle of a great, open field...sans trees.
So, no work on the TreeHouse...we've made the executive decision that the TreeHouse can be worked on when there is snow on the ground...but, alas...the leaves cannot be worked on when covered in a thick blanket of snow.
I'll keep you posted, tho...rest assured! ;)
In other news, I've been working the evening shift at work this weekend...which leaves (bah! That word again!) little time for family.
And I miss them.
I feel like I just want to curl into a ball, with my family around me, snuggle up by the fire and just...just...just be.
After my yucky work night, I've been aching for some family time...but, it turns out, they leave (leaf?!!) me with things to remember them while I'm work.
Came home from school singing this song:
"Miss Mary Mack-mack-mack,
All dressed in black-black-black,
With silver buttons-buttons-buttons,
All down her back-back-back.
She asked her mother-mother-mother,
For fifteen cents-cents-cents,
To watch the elephants-elephants-elephants,
Jump over the fence-fence-fence.
They jumped so high-high-high,
They touched the sky-sky-sky,
And didn't come down-down-down,
'Til the Fourth of July-ly-ly!"
And now's when I wish I could sing, so you could hear the catchy little beat (it reminds me of something...and if I were at all musically inclined, I could probably tell what the tune or beat is!)...but, trust me on this...it's a sticky song!
One that is hard to get out of my head!!
But, you know what?
I'm okay with that...'cuz it reminds me of my kiddos, awaiting my return home.
Man, I need some snuggle time.
