Okay SO it has been 3 weeks since I last posted, but I have a good excuse. I have only had 3 full days off work since my last post and put in 165 hours of work, not counting travel time to northern SK and back, then Vancouver and back, then northern SK and back AGAIN. I am exhausted. I also drove out to Regina and back on one of those 3 days off to pick up Brahm from the airport because he missed a connecting flight between Montreal and Toronto... but that's another story.
Anyway I have lots of things to post now but today I am happy to bring you a new adventure of Texts From My Mom. It details her search for some mitts I left in Humboldt, a hammer, bag clips, going for Thai food, and also her current quest to win the Toyota from Roll Up the Rim to Win. Featuring guest texts she sent to my sisters.
Oh yeah. Sadly she has learned about T9 and is no longer subbing in letters and numbers for full words.
