It’s so very boring here today. I may take a nap. Joe (14) and Jacob (12) have gone to work with John. Boone (18) and Andrew (17) are cleaning up the barracks and putting all the furniture back in it’s regular places. The thing that makes this day feel so boring is that we had [...]
We had pizza for supper last night. Delicious, homemade pizza. The best pizza I’ve had in a long, long time. And I didn’t touch it until it was ready to eat. I had another headache yesterday.
