The best laid plans for taking the day off

Ah, Sunday.

Been a crazy week, just for something different, so I choose to take the day off and spend it with The Family. Always good for a bit of fun and relaxation, gets me off the computer.

And something about someone looking at someone, who retaliates by touching the other until it turns into a full blown war with hitting and yelling, followed immediately by refusing to get dressed and going off and doing other things and continuing to be negative about going out.

Business call. Request to appear on Sunrise tomorrow morning, lots of dicsussion and I miss the dinosaur bones. Another call re the segnment not long after.

Lunch had, more exhibits viewed and it’s off to drop the kids off at a friend’s house as arranged prior to us leaving this morning. Grumpy and I left with
