theary and the family have been in town from nebraska since tuesday. it was a surprise visit that i knew of, but i didn't get the chance to take some time off. and for that, i have been completely tired and feeling like i never left work. but its been worth every bit of exhaustion. the company is really needed, we've been spending a lot of time at our dad's house. it's also pauls birthday week so we've got a lot of things going on.
