I’m getting to that beyond tired point. I don’t know how people can handle this for long periods of time… I’ve been working for the past eight days and the next possible day off I get isn’t until Tuesday or Wednesday, then it’s another stretch of 10 days or so after that. It’s just until the 23rd, though, and then I get the wonderful soul-cleansing canoe trip to make me all better. I’m going to need this trip by the time it gets here.

There’s some spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove – I’m making it for tomorrow night’s dinner. It tastes good so far, should be just great by tomorrow. One thing I’m learning at the lodge is some extra cooking skills – they do gourmet organic dinners at the lodge every night, and now on top of the housekeeping stuff I do I get to help out in the kitchen. It’s good, because by the time I’m living on my own again and have time to cook I’ll be far more capable of cooking really interesting yummy crazy things.

Sometimes I wish I could afford to be a housewife. Maybe if I win a lottery or something.

I’ll just have to leave it at that.

    Hang in there, JL.

    I miss you guys and your beautiful temagami, too.

    If I win the lottery… I’m going up there. Damn that confounded lottery. The winning numbers are so elusive.

      Well, having one might be okay, except I hate living with women most of the time…
