Just tracked down a copy of a recent portrait of our kids.

My theory on portraits: it seems like so many facilities spend inordinate amounts of time taking and posing for portraits and pictures. What did people do before they had cameras? Portraits show children cleaned up and dressed up in their finest. Not always an accurate representation of the people in the picture. Like my kids above, often times a portrait whitewashes away all the issues of the day. All seems well, when in fact there are actually a lot of issues going on. 

An old, previously unposted recap of March 19: Wednesday night C and A had art, and M was off at a friend’s house, so I took my time getting home. Left the office at 5:45 and stopped by a Cheeseburger Bobbys near the office. Perhaps if I stop using A1 steak sauce and instead use ketchup the burger will taste better (that turned out to be true). Still not as good as Fuddruckers (not as thick a burger). Passed on the fries, which are good and plentiful. 

On the way home I found an Ilya Kovalchuk bobblehead for my collection.

About 9:15 I returned a library book and mailed some letters, then drove 38 miles, past Six Flags to Douglasville to pick up Matthew. I’d noticed that 285 traffic was backed up northbound, so on the way back I took 20 east downtown, then 75 north to Delk Road…adding another ten miles to my already long trip. Of course downtown traffic was backed up as well. Got home about 11:15.

Finally got somewhat caught up at work yesterday, but this morning we’ve already had a rejection on one part and a shutdown on another - plus other issues kept coming up.
