This post is the first that is written on my iPhone. We'll see how many typos happen this way. So, I'm sitting in downtown Van Nuys on my hour and a half lunch break from jury duty. Yes,I'm still on the jury and I'm praying that it ends today. But all of this beside the point. I just wanted to give props where they belong. The first goes out to Garrett who has taken over for me during these past few days. Luckily, his job is flexible enough that we've been able to get away with not having to get babysitters for the kids. He's just stepped up and taken over in the picking up of the boys, starting Kevin on his homework and all the other stuff that comes with afterschool. So thanks Gar!

Secondly, these past few days have made me appreciate all of the "working" moms out there. Yes, I work part time but I don't really consider myself a working mom. It's hard getting everyone ready in the morning, including yourself, getting everyone to where you're supposed to be on time. Then on top of all that coming home and making dinner and cleaning up the house. I'm thankful for the schedule I have but have truly developed a new appreciation for those moms who do it all, and then some!

Ok, my fingers are cramping from typing on the phone..... But I the one positive of being here is actually having a required lunch break!!

I love how supportive you both are to each other...helping each other out cheerfully when you both need it.
Hope you are finished with the jury duty by now and have stories to tell, Tasha, about your experience.
I agree with you about working moms....a HARD, HARD job...little time for them to put their feet up and relax. They need all the love and encouragement they can get.
