No, I'm alright

PJ and Alec went camping Friday night. As we were packing at one point PJ paused and looked at me and said "Dad! I'm wearing two pairs of underwear!" which he thought was pretty funny.

But I figured, he was going camping so it was no big deal. Alec's mom, was taking the boys camping. I would have gone along, except I had the monumental chore of cutting up the old broken down hot tub on our deck into arm sized pieces and schlepping them out to the curb. I
rented a sawzall, a reciprocating saw that can cut through fiberglass, plastic, nails, wood, pretty much anything, for the job and spent all of Saturday working on this.

Sam and Kathleen were down at 'the cow house' in the Shenandoah's this weekend. Anna was bouncing around between friends and on the trampoline, so she kept busy. Several hours and blisters later the hot tub was on the curb.

Anna had a sleepover at a friends house Saturday night. PJ and Alec came back around 2pm and hung out much of the day, then around 7PM or so, PJ went to sleep over at Alec's house, so I had a quiet house for a few hours that night.

Sometimes there is so much activity around you that you can't keep track of it all, and it feels like you are just part of a storm, and every once in a while you catch a glimpse of something.

Sunday morning, at around Ten AM, PJ comes in the door while I am repairing the screen on our porch. I ask him if he had a good time overnight.

"Dad, guess what?" He asks.

"What, PJ."

"I'm, still wearing two pairs of underwear!"

"Well, maybe you should take one, or both of them and go upstairs and put some clean clothes on?" I ask him.

"No, I'm alright." He says, and the goes to sit down in front of the computer.
