It's been a long week. Can I leave it at that?
(No. Of course not.) Without going into TOO much detail, just know that it's been a week of sharing 1 vehicle while transporting furniture, folding more laundry than you can possibly comprehend, baking and baking and baking and (FINALLY) welcoming a new nephew into our family!

I really am comfortable and and starting to relax and I really don't CARE about the wrestling moves. Instead of making them wait and wait and wait for me to trudge in and be unimpressed with the exercise I extended to witness the Most Awesome Guy Thing, I called back;
"So, if I come in there now, will you come and check out the really sweet and romantic thing I witness on the next show I am watching?"
A bit of silence and then,
And Tracey remains in her comfy desk chair and all is right with the world.
