LM(Love Muffin) is in Minnesota visiting one of her sisters. Since shes been gone, I've lost 3 pounds. I hope she comes home before I fade way to nothing.
The Great Family Room Reconstruction Project proceeds apace. Unfortunately, "apace" is actually "slowly". Of course, the project is the reason I'm losing weight. I'm working it off. Believe me, it's not that I'm not eating. I don't miss many meals.
My #3 son has been doing yeoman work but it is now very clear he will never make a living with a hammer in his hand. Keyboard, mouse and amazing processor, yes. Hammer, no. He's a computer nerd, like me.
Me and LM? For years one of us would say "I love you", as people in love often do. The other would say, "I love you more". Over the years it's become a kind of shorthand as words were added to it, so now we text one another with "more" or "best" or "better" or "bestest". Just that. We know what we're saying - no one else does.
Except now you do, too.
