Posse

le yawn

Bonus day at work today, to make up for a day I missed last week.

Z. had a good spring break. Bowling happened, visited a new baby, eggs were located after hidden by one bunny, much Sgt. Frog was watched and much Wizard 101 was played. You know, the usual rites of spring. I got, like, zero done with my toys, but hey. Team Fortress 2 was a tempting enough alternative.

Fully intend to get through some of the massive backlog of pics taken... eventually.

This week, hoping to slip out to Hunter Games</b> with M. one night, and maybe get those taxes things done. Looking for a Sunday for a zoo trip, will let people know if that solidifies.
