Life here at the Roost is good. It's probably not luxurious by any definition, but it is GOOD. We don't worry about the basics - food, water, power, housing, transportation (except that all our cars are well over 10 years old so one says a powerful prayer every time they are used.) Even in the face of financial "crisis" we are doing "OK". SO, when the kids grumble that Mom is late getting home from a meeting, Dad gets a bit grumpy. Tonight's lecture was all about the fact that mom didn't want to be where she was past 9 pm, but that she did it because her job made our life possible. The appropriate response to that is THANK YOU! followed by we missed you. Without the Other income (and the efforts of the other spouse to secure it) there wouldn''t be Roberts' Roostl or any of the rest of this.
