The Head Of HR Approves


The Webmaster finally ordered himself a pair of reading glasses online, after finding a pair that fit his face that didn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Here he is, at his “desk,” showing them off.

I think he looks good in them.

And since I am the head of HR in this house, I have cleared all comments about my co-worker’s appearance with myself, and I approve.

Out For A Walk


The weather has been trying to make up its mind whether it will be spring showers or spring sunshine.

When it is sunshine, I try to get the boys outside to ride bikes.  But yesterday, Thumper and I went for a long walk around the neighborhood.

We only had to avoid a few puddles, but Thumper was very happy to be out and about – and away from his brothers.  The walk became longer and longer because he just wanted to stay outside.

And it was good exercise for me, too!

Ane’s Home!


It almost became a close shave, but Ane’s flight arrived last night, just as Hawaii began to lock down.

But she made it!  And she brought us treats!

It was late and her brothers were already in bed, but they were happy to see her this morning!

And she was happy to see them, even though she wasn’t fully awake yet.

Routines Under The Rule Of Mom


My reign is continuing to be glorious.

Or something.

With no online school and no regular schedule to be had, it is up to me to make sure there is some kind of structure to our lives.  The Webmaster is now officially working from home as well (he got word of that last week, and promptly set up shop in our bedroom with all the stuff he needed from work – which makes him my co-worker now, and I am the official head of HR), and Ane gets back tonight (late), so we have to have some kind of routine so we don’t all go nuts.

I am still pushing outside recess time on the boys, especially while the weather is good, but when recess ends and the assigned school work under Mom is done, there is time for a nap.

If you’re Tad.

Thanks to being a growing teenager, the kid can drop off for a nap anywhere, anytime.

The Webmaster watched him sleep and said, “I swear I can see him growing.”
