Old photos on that one day of the year

It’s that one day of the year… when the 7:30 Report isn’t on at 7:30.

Other than that, today…

I’m tired.

Both kids were home sick today, coughing their guts up. Wears you out. (Maybe I’m not feeling 100% myself.)

Bank account almost drained for the month.

My eldest son Isaac officially became a teenager.

I goofed by (yet again) ordering some of his presents by mail order, and they’re running late. Sigh. I’ve got to stop doing that (though I know he’ll like them when they arrive).

On the bright side, I’ve been scanning in old photos from the 70s and 80s. A couple of them are quite prophetic. (And don’t I look cute!)

I also found proof I’ve always been a Cats fan.

Thanks to my mum for holding onto them all these years, and digging them out.

And you look like you are having much more fun on the horse ride than the horse!
