Malcolm came home from the Tucker house today, and it was like he was fed speed! After a long and productive day at work, this kid has just been go, go, go! We've been hom now for a couple of hours, and he's been wired this whole time. My hope is that, after a little while, when he crashes, he crashes hard. But, as Jayne Cobb says, "...if wishes were horses, we'd all be eating steak." Fatherhood. Every day is an adventure.
Bart and I were very busy at work today, and for the forseeable future, it looks like. The summer tourist season has started early his year. In he span of a couple of weeks, the amount of work has doubled, and even hiring Bart, we're still barely breaking even on the workload. It's a good feeling to be worn out, though. It sure beats going to work and simply waiting for 5:00 to roll around.
We've put Star Wars on, and I'm sitting here pondering what may lie in our future. With any luck, this summer will bring lots of fishing, hiking, and whale watching. Phew... it's been a year, and I still love Alaska.
