Every year during busy season, Danny stops sleeping.
I don’t know if it’s an internal thing…or that he is missing his dad.
It doesn’t really matter.
Hugh isn’t the only one “working” the crazy long tax season hours.
Kate tells me this evening.
I guess the writing prompt for her TCAP (Colorado standardized test for school aged kids) today was to write about someone who “inspires you.”
Usually, when a writing prompt like this comes up, Danny is the subject.
But this time, this year, I was the inspiring one.
For all sorts of reasons.
(Feel free to read random posts over the last year, chances are you will land on one or two of those reasons)
I knew it was an amazing eventful year.
But apparently, the rest of my Marrtians felt the same way.
By the way, there are many times when Miss Kate inspires me!!!
My heart just burst with pride tonight when she and I were chatting…but I played it cool…you know…because she is fifteen.
That is a recipe for a perfect day on marrs.
Danny’s internal clock never changes for winter so our hours are always off.
But then every spring, the time changes back. And the hours on Marrs are more consistent with the general population.
It was this today!
So we spent much of the day outside soaking up the vitamin d.
And since my Acura is still in the shop from me crashing it a month ago, I’m driving the fun car.
Crazy pretty sunrise…
I was hopeful that I could get out for a run, but the rain/snow blew in faster than I planed.
So I went shopping, picking up this among other things….
I cut it short as Danny was having a tough afternoon. Poor kid. Between the weather and missing his daddy….it was not his best afternoon.
Even though Hugh gets home every night, by 8:00 or 8:30pm…Danny is usually so tired from his day, he is asleep when Hugh walks through the door. He can go days without seeing his father during busy season.
The evening looked like this…
So we hunkered down….
Just being silly…
I even managed to grab a couple of pics of the elusive Jack before he shut me down…..complete with “oh mother…..”
Hugh made it home in time to tuck in a very tired Danny who stubbornly refused to go to bed even though he was completely wiped out…..
It was a very boring ordinary day.
Which is a lovely gift.
I’ve had more than our fair share of exciting drama filled days….I so much prefer the boring ordinary days and a quiet night at home.
Well, besides what every one else thinks is emergent.
It is when Dan’s lemonade gets knocked…which causes it to spill… Which then results on a sticky and fried router…
No Internet means that we drop everything and do what we can to fix it.
So, right now I am in line at comcast trying to pick up new equipment.
Let’s watch momma Laura play tech geek shall we???
