Rat’s Nest

I have had a wonderful retreat lasting this past week.  Ron is a saint, giving me all that time!  He has been Mr. Mom, carting his around and keeping the show going.
   Today, getting back in the saddle, I told Leigh to take a shower.  It seemed like it had been. . . a week.
   She came to me and showed me the knots in her hair: she had an entire rat’s nest.  I laughed, and took out cream and oil and worked on her hair for an entire hour.  A bottle of conditioner and many of Leigh’s tears later, we finally got it all out.
   Oh, my family needs me!!
