Hi, y’all. We’re slowly shifting to the summer schedule, which turns out to be more frenetic than the regular schedule. I overscheduled activities for Ian, and Jonah has a work schedule that is throwing a major wrench into our two-car household. We are not ready to expand our car fleet to accommodate Jonah’s 5-dollar per hour bus boy schedule.
And $5 per hour? That’s what Jonah makes. Restaurants are allowed to pay servers less than minimum wage because they supposedly get tips. Jonah’s gets handouts from the bartenders and waitresses, so he’ll come home with $15 per night in tips. His first check for 35 hours of work was for $100. Meh.
Alright, I need to get my brain together here and get back to blogging/work. I’m going to go light this morning and just share some links.
This Iraqi refugee is doing amazing work with miniatures.
Upper middle class Americans are 21st Century Victorians.
New England style prefab houses are totally cute.

Professors on the chopping block. I’m going to come back to this one.
