It has been a long week with Patrick starting school and getting his school and work schedules set. School has also brought homework to his plate. At Lisa's work a co-worker came back from maternity leave and the office was rearranged to make room to include a new employee. Jobs are changing and it is as confusing as having two houses partly packed and a mess.
This was a surprise. Some of you may know the sadness of the old rose bush. The sellers razed the old bush during a miscommunication about fixing the concrete at the base of the house. At the time the saddest part was that they reduced this old rose bush to 4 inch stumps. It was almost as tall as Lisa! Today as we checked out the side of the house - turns out the outside water bib leaks (see Lows and Highs). Anyway, we discovered this new growth on the little stump. We'll see how it grows back.
