apparently I jinxed it. No sooner did I post about Eric's overtime, (we've known about the overtime for a while now), then he got an email canceling any additional overtime. He is working on a government contract and they cut the funding. This is, ahem, not the first time in the current administration that this is happened. They have to make their current budget last until the end of the fiscal year.

The positive part in all this is that he did get 31 hours of overtime in. Just enough to fix the fence with a bit left over. Oh well, we will soldier on!

Over WHAT?!?

Overtime...and lots of it. Eric is putting in 12 hour days until school starts in August, then he goes to 4 thirteen hour days and one day for school. Crazy...yes...scary...yes. It looks likes this goes through September. I'm not complaining, I am exceptionally proud of Eric. He is moving "up the ranks"nicely. I know he is looking forward to being finished with school, tentatively May 2011. I am just hanging in there and counting down the days until the high temp is only 85, not 105 ;)

We are home now and deconstructing the events of the last week. We are slowly getting back into our routine. Been doing LOTS of laundry and cleaning ;) We greatly appriciate all the thoughts and prayers for the Hopf/Wessel/Mehringer Family. We are truely blessed to have had Emil in our lives and looking down on us. It was sad to leave Teresa, but she and Edward are doing okay considering all that has happened. Thoughts and prayers need to go out to my friend Erika. Her Grandmother lost her battle with cancer the other day. It was expected, but none the less hard.

If I owe you a Thank You note, give me a week or so and I will have them out. I still owe folks for Alex's b-day. Slowly but surely it will get finished!!
