A morning at home, at long last. The second job is over.

It was a part-time stint with H&R Block. They allowed us beginners to work only the easy stuff that comes in at the dawn of the tax season -- which is A Good Thing for you, and fine with me. It wasn't much of a job, but I'm actually rather proud of myself for trying it. Taxes have long been one of my phobias, so taking the Block classes and doing returns represents a small personal triumph. One less thing to fear.

So. I've been roaming around the house today, getting reacquainted with the place. I found an archery range in the basement. Imagine my surprise.

Me to hubby: "When did we get arrows?"
Hubby: "Couple of weeks ago."
Me: "WHY did we get arrows?"
Hubby shrugs: "Seemed like a cool idea at the time."
Me: "And why are these arrows embedded in the rec room wall?"
Hubby: "We have two boys."
Me: "Oh yeah."

There is serious cleaning to be done, and the cupboard holds food I have never seen before. Apparently, hubby has also been experimenting with canned and frozen dinners. Poor baby.

It's good to be back.

Welcome back, Vicki. It was well worth waiting for. I laughed my ass off, and now I have to go look for it.
