  1. A week on the ranch (June 22 - June 28, 2009)

    by , 06-29-2009 at 02:14 AM
    The week ends, and with it ends my vacation time. The summer of Mad Hen closes, and tomorrow, it is back to the grindstone.

    When I decided to take a week off, I had grand intentions of doing all the things I've been putting off, getting things organized and cleaned up, and basically getting my personal life in order.

    Wow, what a week! Lots to report, and I feel like I wrung this week out and used every last drop!

    My sister and mother took me to lunch for my birthday on Monday (although my birthday was Wednesday).

    Hmm...looks like a D- kind of day. But I'm too stuffed full of homemade sushi to care right now. Rolling off to bed....
