Life is pretty darned good over in my corner of the world.

One kid off school, one to go.

No more night classes, only mornings.

Got paid a big fat wad of cash.

It is the weekend, and I am not doing ANY work this weekend, and about time too.

The house is looking really good all of a sudden, they have nearly finished the roof and are now starting to reshape walls in the upstairs part of the house....and it is shaping up really well.  Even Youngest's room, which had me frankly worried.

They are even working to add in some bonuses for us....

Chamfering on a window where I thought we couldn't have it, an ugly door replaced for a nicer one, without asking.

Then we had pizza, bruschetta, artichokes, beans and salad for dinner, which watching Mamma Mia.

Something to be said for a musical, ya know?

Setting up to be a fabulous weekend, and I am feeling pretty happy!

Hope you all are too!

Sounds like you are turning a corner at last. Isn't it nice when summer officially arrives, meaning school winding down and all that goes with it?
