Good evening,

Long night at work, not too busy customerwise. I was able to get some of next week's projects done tonight, it will be an easy week next week now.
I am tired tonight, I will be getting up early to head back to work.

Have a good night all.

It's going to be so strange not having to chauffeur any kids around. My husband has been haggling with the car dealer all week and I believe they are just about ready to make a deal.
I also had some other news to share. A friend of mine has been doing babysitting out of her home to make some extra money. She has been doing it for years and has to turn people away because she can only watch so many. Anyway, she called me last night and asked if I might be interested in watching a six year old special needs girl. It would only be for a couple of hours in the morning until the school bus picks her up, twice a week. The family lives very close to me, they are right around the corner. I actually met with them earlier, they are a beautiful family. The little girl has cerebral palsy. She can't communicate well but she walks and eats all by herself. And she is incredibly sweet. I told them I will do it, I am so excited! Wish me luck, I really hope it works out. I start next Tuesday.
I hope everyone is well and had a wonderful day.
Goodnight!
Good luck, I'm sure you will a wonderful job!
