Short N Sweet!

Working long hours. Fourteen hours awake and I'm ready to get to know my pillow! Long hours this week and potentially longer hours next week and possibly the next one (the result of an April price increase). Still haven't found tuner but, I still have two days to find it (haven't really looked hard for it yet). Futzed in yard and did some more cleaning and organizing in the kitchen. Anyway probably not going to post often for a while here or on Facebook. I'm just too busy and tired at the end of the day.
