it's been a quite a week around these parts. nate's union has been on strike for over a week. we're hoping (and praying. and crossing our fingers.) that they will have a contract to vote on at the end of the week. if not, can we move in with you?? to say it has been stressful would be a massive understatement. nate's best friend was 'bumped' by a car while on the picket line, my cousin was in a terrible car accident, i threw a shower for my other cousin, we had all the drains in the bathroom clog up the morning i had a doctors appointment i couldn't reschedule and nate managed to lose a 3rd dog leash (ok, that last one doesn't seem like that big of a deal, except i would have rather spent that $15 on groceries or something.) i'm ready for april to move on - may has to be better, right?
