Afternoon spent playing with the 20 mth old and helping the 10 yr old with math (after she got started it was just reminders to keep working–homework took 3 hours). Chopped some wood. Helped the neighbors puppy find its way home. Tended the fire. Worked on the wife’s computer on some long procrastinated maintenance issues. Shrimp for dinner. Kids to bed. Now I’m tired.
Managed to slip in several chapters of Mutant Message Down Under. My vote for the book as spiritually uplifting stands. On reading it I find myself questioning all my habits from how I deal with my kids to how I approach business to how I handle strangers in the mall. It inspires me to want to treat people better. I highly recommend this book.
