2 Days Left

Before, in my kids’ words, “I have July off!” Well technically I’m being furloughed, but with current unemployment benefits, it’ll be a wash more or less. I will be able to be the parent I wish I could have been for the last three months because I won’t also be trying to work from home while parenting. “How do you do it?” I am asked. “Not well,” I answer honestly. It’s been exhausting.

And while I would prefer to remain employed, I am lucky and have one of the shortest furlough periods of anyone, so that’s lucky too. Enough about me.

Not the car, not even close - although he does like it. It’s not a manual though. That canoe is a 17' cedar strip beauty that he built in the 70's and had used extensively ever since. This is probably the 15th different car it’s been on, and it will most certainly outlast this one too.

There it is, my sister there is probably 3? She’s now 40.

Anyway, I’m getting sidetracked. I’m looking forward to tomorrow afternoon.
