we have been really struggling today. David stole two cell phones, two keys and a DSI from his family last night. Between the hours of 3 am and 4am. How do I know?

Moving forward, we had a huge storm on Friday last, and about half of our cottonwood came down. It was like God laid it down gently between the pool and the garage. It was pretty incredible. Two years ago we lost part of a tree and it took out the kids pool, a van, and part of the garage. At any rate, life moves on.
