Ward House

Quietly canning

Yes, life has been quiet yet very busy at the Ward House. The quick and dirty:

  • I’ve been in a canning frenzy and have most of it done. Lost a pint of ketchup, though, to a quick drop and a fast stop. Not only did I loose several hours of work but also the jar and lid. *sigh*
  • Girls are doing very well in Volleyball (see article below). Katie missed some practice due to a growth spurt. This spurt occurred so quickly that her muscles were unable to lengthen quick enough to accommodate and she was unable to straighten her left leg. Lots of icing and two visits to the physical therapist have her back on track.
  • It’s wood cutting time.
  • Working on my sock… still on the cuff. One thing about Katie’s P.T. appointments is that I got alot of knitting done.
  • Work is still crazy. You know. The whole more-work-for-less-money thing.
  • An acquaintance and coworker passed away suddenly on Saturday. I’m still in shock over that.

That about sums it up. Today has been more stressful than usual and I broke down and bought a Mountain Dew to wash down some Cheetos. *shudder* So bad for me yet tastes soooo good!
