I refused to make my bed today, take that rigid and bound to rules!

You can sort of see the hair Raven, it just wasn't a day that I could take the time outside to get a better shot!

It's 10:30pm and my poor husband still isn't home. Hans was a victim of the ferry system today and while he was headed home from work on his usual bus, planning to catch his usual ferry, the routes were canceled and he was stranded. We were told the boats would resume service around 9:30 or 10pm and my poor man only had one option, wait. I feel terrible for him, after a horrible day(week actually) he had to waste FOUR HOURS on a beach at a ferry terminal alone without any sort of decent reading material or anything. I can't believe his voice sounded the slight bit "up" that it did by 8pm, but he managed and now the worst part will be sleeping so briefly and turning around to do it all over again tomorrow.

How I wish he could work here, on the Island, and not have to commute like he does. Someday... I tried to keep busy and to be as miserable as I could while he was suffering across the water. I cooked and cleaned and walked the dogs and cleaned and cooked and handled "meat night" alone. Meat night constitutes me bringing home one of the bulk boxes of meat from the butcher for our boys and having to separate it out from a 30lb box into Ziploc bags for the freezer and fridge. Tonight was a meat night, our most popular- turkey necks and I took care of it, it's the least I can do. I've been missing his company so much tonight and suddenly feel way too busy. Somehow the month of August exploded with events and I know I've said this already, but it's just totally overwhelming. All I can do is keep chiseling away at the offers that come along and choosing only those which are most important and most feasible for now.

Also, something happened to our Summer weather. It's gone. Left and laughing at us just when I was getting used to it and planning on having a tan for my upcoming trip. What is the meaning of this?

I think we would be great friends in real life. ;)

August is exploding! Hang in there.

It's okay! In light of the circumstances, I'll take what I can get.

That totally sucks for your husband. I think mine would totally blow a gasket, he already has an hour long commute each way, any additional time onto that is not taken well.
