So, … April.
What a terrible month.
April was like some terrible houseguest, showing up all gloomy, staying much too long. She drained our bank accounts, broke our computer, blew up one engine of one car, which led to a craziness of driving schedules for five people so we could share cars and drive everyone where they needed to go. She brought despair over colleges, panic over college costs, worry about the future college careers of our next two kids. She crashed our hard drive, broke our garbage disposal, and then FINALLY – in a sweep of relief one weekend – left.
May is better.
She’s a better houseguest. She’s quiet, polite and letting us get our lives back together.
May can stay for awhile.
(… at least for another 2-1/2 weeks.)
